Canadian Rider: Jeff Desroche – The Lost Combos

Long time ago I rode with Jeff Desroche, turned out to be one of the best riding sessions of my life. Glad to have found this shared clip on FB then looked closer at it on Vimeo. Jeff is one of the best riders that I have ever rode with, and personality is real down to Earth. Funny comparison, he rides a lot like Jesse Puente who’s to say which is better at this...

King of New York BMX Contest 1998

The year was 1998, the place was Mullaly Park – Bronx New York History A group of riders got together and decided to start their own BMX contest series right in their local skate/bike park called Mullaly Park. Led by Luis Perez, Rob Ramos and Fred Gonzalez these riders decided it was time to establish a scene of their own, they called it “King of New York”. Riders from Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island (whaddup Ivan) and New Jersey (whaddup Adam Guild, Erin Donato, Brian Tunney, Mike Wilson, Rodney Norweiser, Ed Nussbaum) turned up to the event, including riders like Catfish drove all the way from Ohio to represent. The contest series hosted live bands such as Sick of It All, No Redeeming Social Value, and a bunch more! The contest also featured live wrestling…I mean who does that! Even in 1998! This was a once of a kind BMX contest, in an era where riding was truly underground especially in the Bronx. Enjoy the video clips that BIKERSTORIESNYC shared with the world. (The music is different but thats cool, if anything its very much like the contest itself..a free for all BMX contest that celebrated originality. FlowZine sponsored and hosted the event…it was when it all began for us. You can spot Flowzine Fred riding on a borrowed bike in between of running the event with the crew.

2015 Rolling Flatland by Dane Beardsley

Thank God there are riders like Dane Beardsley for reintroducing unique flatland riding style and not relying on the endless ballerina spinning that the Japan riders have taken way too far. I can certainly appreciate the complexity in many of the spinning tricks and the amount of trial and error it takes to master some of the ultra-jacked-up-time-machine cross footed no handed switch stance bars big to bike flip out…while in the middle of a super fast spin..but enough is enough. Here is a rider Dane Beardsley that is really sticking to the Kevin Jones mantra of originality, and carries a riding style similar to Brian Tunney. Their styles are similar in how technically skilled the switch moves are, and most importantly….they are rolling! Welcome back rolling tricks…the world missed...

Lifestyles of Pete Olsen

Video part filmed in Saskatoon, Canada in the fall of 2011. Thanks to family and friends for support Riding for S&M Peter Olsen is officially shielded! S&M Bikes After watching this video you’ll probably notice Peter’s on another level with his physical skills, what’s not so obvious is the mental aspect of his riding- he’s very cerebral and conceptual and we’re stoked to see what he comes up with next. This collection of clips offers a brief glimpse into what’s going on in his world. One of the things I noticed is the fact that his shoes never touch a tire. PGO also has some of the most creative, cleanest pivots in the game. Welcome aboard Peter! — Chad Johnston Film: Trevor Oleniuk and Ruby Stickney Edit: Chad Johnston Music: Tall T and The Touchers “Touching The President”...
