Phoenix’s BMX creativity ambassador, Drew Hosselton, is right in the midst of an overseas adventure and sent in this update talking a bit about his trip so far. Always good to see what Drew is getting into. Be sure to click on the post and check out a few of Drew’s photos from his trip and big thanks to Bertie Buck for shooting this sick pocket wall-ride photo of our boy blue during his trip, you know I meant our boy Drew!
“After the Volume/Demolition Tea and Biscuits Tour wrapped up a week or two ago, I stayed behind in England for a couple extra weeks to travel around with some friends I knew over here. I pretty much went from the bus we had for the tour straight into my buddy Ben’s car and headed towards Amsterdam. We ended up staying in some urban campground which sounded kind of sketchy initially but ended up being pretty sweet. It was super cheap, clean, and had all the essentials including good internet. After being on a riding trip for nearly two weeks, chilling was top priority so we hit up a number of Amsterdam’s finest coffee shops and really soaked in the “culture” if you know what I mean. We did get out of the coffee shop haze from time to time and got some riding in. We stumbled across a really cool vert ramp under a bridge and it ended up being one of the funnest sessions I have had so far, just pumping around on some old ass vert ramp. After Amsterdam I went back to Bournemouth, UK to chill with some friends. It was a solid week, pretty much just chilled, rode a bit, and got a sick new tattoo! I arrived in London yesterday, out of gas and out of cash I get to chill out and explore the city for a couple of days before its time to head back to the armpit of the US that is Arizona.” – DH

The new DIG site just launched and it is lookin better than ever. Couldn’t be more stoked to have more options in BMX media and actually have some original content online. Vince Perraud travelled to California earlier this year to get some amazing shots for the new DIG site and saw these two of Dennis and Christian while he was in SD. Click more to see the Dennis shot.
“Earlier this year I travelled to California with Matthias Dandois and Maxime Charveron, as part of French mobile phone provider Sosh’s ‘Couchriding’ trip. With a massive crew of two riders, two skaters, one snowboarder, two photographers, three filmers, assistants and journalists, it was hardly your typical BMX trip, but it turned out to be an insane experience. Here’s a selection of mostly unseen rider related shots from what turned into an epic photographic journey.” – Vince Perraud
