If you can appreciate the effort that Albert Piotrowski and Mateusz “Usz” Kanownik put into this video, it will be worth the minute long intro. But if you can’t, it will be the longest minute of your life. I’m definitely into the second half of this.
Last year DC took Jeremiah Smith, Dylan Stark, Alfredo Mancuso, Rob Wise and Hucker on a tour of Southeast Asia and if the photos from the trip were any indication, the edit was sure to be good. They go from Indonesia to Malaysia and Thailand, all the while hanging out with the locals, putting on demos and finding whatever street they could. Its also pretty cool that they took the time to meet with some less fortunate kids and introduce alot of them to BMX. This looks like it was a pretty wild trip!
Bad news for Brad Simms; he’s been given the boot from both The Set and DC Shoes.
This is awesome. It’s experiences like this that get kids stoked on BMX. Shoutout to DC.
“The DC Shoes BMX team recently visited San Diego to participate in the Junior Seau Foundation “Shop with a Jock” program. The team put on a demo for 200 underprivileged kids from the San Diego area. Each child was selected based on an essay contest. In addition to the demo, each DC team member took one of the kids shopping at Target to get gifts for their families, or themselves. The team had a great time, and made some last memories serving in the community.”
So I know you’ve already seen this flier 5000 times but DC are helping us out a ton by posting it on their Facebook, tweeting it and sending out a press release to everyone they work with, which is HUGELY helpful to us. So if you want to read me talking all appropriate and shit, check that after the jump and either way, see you there.
Also if you have any promotional opportunities that you think we might be interested in (like if you know anyone who works for a magazine, newspaper, etc) feel free to get in touch, every bit helps.
DC is excited to announce and take part in the Brett Banasiewicz Holiday Jam as part of the Athlete Recovery Fund, presented by The Come Up BMX. The event will take place on Sunday, December 30th2012 from 6pm until midnight at the RyeAirfield in Rye, New Hampshire.
Dozens of professional BMX riders will be in attendance at the Rye Airfield to help raise money for DC athlete Brett Banasiewicz, who was injured last year while practicing for a contest, which left him in a medically induced coma. The charity event will take place as more of a jam than demo and attendees can pay $10 to watch some of the top pros in BMX ride, or pay $20 to join and ride with them. The event will also include a series of raffles and giveaways featuring DC gear, all benefitting the Athlete Recovery Fund. DC BMX athletes in attendance will include Chris Doyle, Edwin De La Rosa, Jeremiah Smith, Alfredo Mancuso, Mike Clark, Craig Mast, Stevie Churchill, Kelly Bolton, and Ryan Jordan.
“I really got to know Brett last year during a trip to Shanghai which he and I were both on. He’s an amazing rider and without question one of the greatest skatepark riders of all time. To see him take such a devastating crash at the height of his career has been hard for the BMX community. I want to bring my home state of New Hampshire together to help raise money for one of our heroes who is dealing with one of the worst head injuries we’ve ever seen,” said The Come Up’s founder and chief editor, Adam Grandmaison.
The Come Up attracts over 200,000 unique visitors a month and is considered to be BMX’s most popular and most influential website. The Brett Banasiewicz Holiday Jam is the first ever charity event hosted by the Come Up BMX.
Who do you call when Rob Dyrdek is too scared to do a stunt? Kelly frickin’ Bolton. This is seriously awesome. The question is, would you have manned up and done it? Thanks to DC for sending this through.
Here’s a new one that is actually a little old featuring young Stevie Churchill killing a skatepark for DC.
Check out this rad little behind the scenes video DC put together from their latest print ad shoot with Alfredo Mancuso. They made their way out to the Sepulveda Dam with a generator and lights and proceeded to ride the spot completely unbothered for a few hours. It looks like this gave Alfredo and photographer Jeremy Pavia all the time they needed to get the shot exactly how they wanted and the resulting ad turned out really well.
DC just posted a nice big gallery of photos Walter Pieringer shot with a few guys from the BMX team riding parks, doing demos and hitting some amazing looking street spots in Southeast Asia. There are some really good images in here, hit the DC site to check them all out.
