I’m sure everyone agrees that these clips are anything but scraps. Simone Barraco throws down some great clips for Shadow in Barcelona. The manual to 360 line on the round benches is so dope… Actually scrap that (no pun intended) everything this kid does is so dope.
The folks over at the Albion are starting to release their back issues free online. So if you haven’t been able to acquire one, now’s your chance. There’s plenty of great articles/interviews to catch up on, so get crackin. The Albion is unlike any other BMX mag (for better or for worse), so get into it and enjoy.
Issue 1 HERE, and subsequent issues dropping every Monday morning for the next 9 weeks.
Rider: Chris Brown
Location: Minneapolis, MN
This one is from a summer ago when Chris and Tony Malouf were visiting Reed Stark in Minneapolis on a trip for BSD. It was a pretty quick weekend, but everyone was making the most of it and putting together a little web edit dubbed “Minnesota Nice”. I was along to shoot a few photos and hang out enjoying the late summer days.
One thing that really stuck out to me about Chris is that he doesn’t take warm-up runs. This has caught me off guard, since I’m used to being able to take my time a little more and get myself set up before a photo. He just takes a good look at a spot, puts things together in his mind’s eye, and fires it out. This sketchy rail ride was no exception. The setup was far from ideal: downhill runup, harsh chunk where the path met the stairs, and a wobbly railing. It was no problem for Chris though, as he quickly took a look and went for it. It only took two tries before we had the photo, the clip, and were off to eat tacos before heading to the next spot.
What better way to break in your new private ramp facility than to fly Corey Martinez over to flex his super human bike handling capabilities all over said ramp facility? I don’t know…
This is the first edit of many to come I’m sure.
We just got these bad bitches approved and have them on order now. They should be hitting our dealers shelves by the end of September. Also if you are going to be at the Interbike trade show you can check them out in person at the Tip Plus booth.
