Sit down with a few of the ladies who brought stiff competition at this year’s Red Hook Crit. The women’s category of the race has been growing steady with veteran racers like Christina Peck battling it out for top spots. Just a trailer here so stay tuned for the real deal for an in depth look!
Cool sit down with two of the top riders currently on the street race circuit. Willo and Neu York talk events, teams and what motivates them to keep killing it race after race in this LA Weekly feature. This is the whole interview package including some rad shots of the dudes at Wolfpack down south.
From my introduction to “urban cycling” years back the name Lucas Brunelle has always been a relevant one. After years on the road as a messenger he’s now making two wheeled films full time and traveling to all corners of the world. Personally Lucas is the epitome of a “DIY” lifestyle proving that it’s not what you do but what you love that matters. If you dig a good read there’s a rad interview on Brian Safa‘s spot that goes a bit deeper than the norm go peep!
If there’s one dude that’s been at the forefront of fixed freestyle media the past few years it’d have to be Zane Meyer. With his resume spanning an array of video projects I was pumped when he hit me up about his most recent one. After pulling together an epic trip to Bangkok last year he’ll be traveling back and beyond to show his new film Bangkok Bound. I checked in with him last week for a few questions on the project and what’s new in his world…click through for the full read!
1. I got a chance to peep the rough cut of Bangkok Bound and it looks like one hell of a trip. Definitely a wild scene out there and you had the perfect crew to keep things fun. What should people expect from this little travel flick?
This edit was a lot fun to put together. Like all my edits, It’s definitely music driven and shows a good amount of “Lifestyle/True Reality. My music choice in this is more psychedelic then what people are used to. Also captured some priceless moments like Steven jumping over a security’s scooter while the security guard was sleeping. Obviously Combs being Combs and having the locals messing around.
A really cool inteview over on redbull with Ted James aka “Super Ted”. He’s a wild dude and can shred just about anything on two wheels….usually hand made by the man himself. Hop over to peep some more photos of this rad as hell BMX he whipped up.
…and just for good measure here’s some old school super Ted with Juliet Elliott when he was throwing down on the fixed freestyle bike.
Sean over at TOLA has been hard at work sending out some rider profile questions. Was happy to answer what he threw at me and stoked for the opportunity to do a little interview. After seeing some typos I told Sean I needed to proofread…he replied “proof read? #bloggerproblems.” So perfect haha. If you care to read up click over!
For some time now Pablo Gallardo has been holding down the Brazilian urban cycling scene via Tag and Juice. Dude’s dedicated and always working on projects to help grow bike culture in Sao Paulo. He recently linked up with clothing brand Weird Factory and sat down to talk bikes, inspiration and culture. This is a long one and all with subtitles but well worth a look into another part of the world. Some cool shots in the mix too.
Read this well done Torey Thronton interview over on Hammer Down a few days back. A good read with one of the true originals in fixed freestyle. Cool that he linked up for this after deciding to focus his energy on some other avenues in his life. Dig this and the attached photo by Rick Anderson. Click over for the whole deal!
Interview stuff with messengers makes for some good content more often than not. Fixed gear mantra aside this film school project featuring messenger TJ Stevenson of Ontario is really well done. Filming and editing are on point and the dude has some pretty acurate stuff to say about the job. Dig stuff like this.
Some fresh news and a bit of freestyle history from Wonka in this Dose/Network A interview. Looks like GRIME is officially finished and the team minus one member are venturing into a new startup. Devon Lawson and Anthony Combs are packing and rolling to NYC to help get things going before the launch in August. Sounds legit and other points Ed hits in this are solid too. Good watch.
