Montana Ricky has been taking full advantage of the summer sessions! Here’s a fresh edit he whipped up packed with clips he’s been filming at street spots, skateparks, the Merritt warehouse and more! No shortage of creative and unique riding as always!
“Here’s some clips from this summer so far some are good, some are you know tricks and others well I thought they were pretty damn cool if I might say so. I hope you enjoy the riding.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel I post videos almost daily.” – Montana Ricky
You can’t go wrong with a trip to Malaga, Spain. Here’s a fresh video featuring Nico Dietz cruising Ruben’s Park and some of the street spots around the city. As always, there was no shortage of amazing spots and sunshine, and it looks like Nico had no trouble putting his bag of tricks to work. Hit play and check it all out!
“It is always a great time to film with my boy Nico. He told me earlier this year that he wants to film something new this year and as invited him to visit me in Málaga it just seemed perfect. So we decided to film this video in cooperation with Twentyinchbikes.
The week he spent here was super fun as always. And the result is amazing. Proud to have this guy as a friend. Also stoked that he is now riding for Twentyinchbikes and Mankind Bmx as I was back in the days.” – Finn Maurer
The ladies were in full attendance down in Mexico City last weekend for the Vans BMX Pro Cup! Here’s a look at all the highlights showing just what was being thrown down. It’s amazing how good the women’s contests are getting!
“The ladies were ripping at the Vans BMX Pro Cup in Mexico city! Peep all the madness from the finals, right here. Riding from Angie Marino, Perris Benegas, Teresa Azcoaga, Natalya Diehm, Macarena Perez and more.”
Steve Crandall doesn’t live in a van down by the river, but he does live in a pretty badass bus! Take a tour of the bus where Steve gives you a look at some of the finer details from the beds to the wood burning stove and more!
In its heyday, the FBM bus was literally fire beer and mayhem on wheels. This blacked out, FBM logo emblazoned, straight pipe exhaust attention grabber transported the FBM team up and down the East Coast and as far deep as Austin, Texas. After five years of road wear, the general unreliability coupled with the cost to maintain the beastly vehicle became too great and Steve Crandall hung up the keys for now. For the last two years Crandall has called the decommissioned vehicle home and has repurposed it into a live-in art studio complete with a wood burning stove. A BMX party bus turned serene creative space… Crandall walks us through the evolution of the FBM bus.

Merritt have added Lorenzo Mesa their international team! Lorenzo has been crushing it down in Costa Rica, an it’s easy to see just why they pick him up. He’s no stranger to putting his pegs to good use and cooked up some heavy lines and combos on rails and ledges to roof drops and more!
“Lorenzo is doing it for us through Nameless in Costa Rica. Hyped to have him on the International squad.” – Merritt
Red Bull is always coming up with some crazy videos for their team riders. Here’s a new one featuring Irek Rizaev cruising through a bunch of ramps setup in Kazan Kremlin that weaved him in and out and all around the place. We can’t imagine what it took to make this video happen from all the ramps being built to keeping the drone on track and everything. Really cool! Check it out!
“Could this be the coolest BMX line ever?!
21-year-old Russian BMX champion, Irek Rizaev builds his dream skatepark in the heart of the Kazan Kremlin citadel in Russia.
Shooting from the perspective of an FPV drone, Irek recruits assistance of Tomz FPV to capture the best of his BMX tricks in the iconic citadel. The team carefully worked out each stage of the project on the territory of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and acted as carefully as possible. It was important to simultaneously achieve the stability of the figures and at the same time not to damage the ancient walls. The success of the project once again confirmed the deserved place of the Russian among the best BMX athletes in the world.” – Red Bull
