Although Montana Ricky and Adam Banton are on opposite sides of the country, that didn’t keep them from working together on a new split edit filled with riding from street spots, skateparks, pools, DIY spots and more. Both of these guys have a unique approach to riding and this is filled with clips showing just that. Plus, the song choice is awesome, too, haha.
Scotty Cranmer dropped his latest webisode, which gives us a little behind the scenes look into a trip that Scotty and Trey Jones took to Arizona to film for the Vans video, along with filmers Justin Kosman and Collin Mackay and Vans TM Jerry Badders! Take a look and see what they have for you in nearly 30 minutes of footage! There’s even a few Adam Banton guest clips, along with a number of other people they crossed paths with during the trip!
“I am back in Arizona for the 2nd time in 2 weeks! But this time I was in Arizona on a filming trip for th Vans BMX video! The team has been filming for the past year to get the best footage that we possibly can for the video! On this trip I meet up with Vans filmers Colin Mackay & Justin Kosman and fellow Vans rider Trey Jones! Follow us as we go to some iconic spots and give you an inside look at what is involved in filming for a video part! I take you to some of the spots where we filmed at and give you some insight of what is going down but without letting the cat out of the bag! This video is going to be amazing and I am so proud of my part so make sure you go buy it on Itunes in June for the release!”
If you follow Adam Banton on any of the social networks, there’s a good chance that you have noticed he has been a very productive guy, as always, over the course of the past year. Between riding BMX, completing his 4th album, snowboarding and more, there’s always something that he’s getting into. With his latest album just being released and him picking up a new sponsor, we figured there would be no better time than now to catch up and talk about what he has been up to lately. So, let’s get into it! There’s a lot of ground to cover…
Name: Adam Banton

What happens when you put two super creative riders into a ditch? Awesome things happen. Check this video out!
“Arizona is packed full of amazing ditches. This ditch, in particular, MUST have been designed by someone with some sort of background in riding. Watch as local boys Adam Banton and Josh Betley enjoy a day of shredding one hell of a crazy spot. Credit: Vital BMX”

We’ve seen some interesting sponsors for some of the riders over the years from underwear to chicken restaurants, to coffee and Hot Wheels. Now, Adam Banton has picked himself up a Health Supplements sponsor called Garden of Life for 2014. Check out the news below!
“2014 has already proven that it’s going to be a good year for me. I’m stoked and honored to let you know I’m now eating, cooking with and snacking on Garden of Life Health Supplements – the best RAW, Non-GMO Certified Organic products out there. Eating raw whole real foods means not getting sick on roads trips, pedaling further on weekends, riding longer sessions and giving my body what it needs to try a tech trick 150 times before I pull it.
It also means knowing I’m taking care of myself in a way that’s going to allow me to sustain my riding career for many years to come.“
