Alright, time to pound out the last few booths I stopped through at Interbike! Sorry for the delay, just a million things to catch on after a few days away. Next up, I swung through the DK Bicycles booth to take a look at what they have cooking. Let’s get into it!
Charlie Bowers is one dude who we haven’t been seeing a lot of footage from lately, but damn is he still killing it. Check out this quick video DK dropped giving us a look at what he’s been getting into lately out in Pennsylvania!
“Where has Monkey been? In Ridgway Pennsylvania wearing this hat. Charlie is still shredding.

More surprising sponsor news rolls in, as we learn that Nina Buitrago as moved on from DK Bikes. No word yet on where she might be headed.
This is awesome! DK Bicycles young buck, Ben Kavanagh coming through with a big bag of tricks and plenty of style. Not to mention he’s gotta be no more than 12 year olds! You can definitely tell he gets plenty of sessions in with Drew Bezanson! Check this out for sure because I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot more of this kid in the future!
“Ben Kavanagh might be a little guy, but he’s got some massive moves. Check out this new video of Ben shredding his home turf at Joyride 150 in Ontario,Canada.

I have to be honest with you here, there are times when I sit around and think for hours, days and sometimes a full week until an idea for a new column pops into my head. Week after week I have been searching for ways to keep things fresh and ways to keep people interested. I simply try to give a reason to check back every Wednesday to see what the new TTL will be about. For those that don’t know, I have officially started my East Coast summer at Woodward and for this week’s column I am very stoked to present an interview with vert legend Jamie Bestwick. Jamie is arguably the best vert rider on the planet and although he doesn’t like to admit that, I doubt there are any riders out there that would argue that fact. He is the type of rider that has an incredible drive to be the best at what he does. He has had a wild journey in BMX so far and has set the bar to an almost unreachable height. Jamie has won eight X Games gold medals in a row and shows zero signs of slowing down anytime soon. He is at the peak of his career and somehow remains level headed, modest and as down to earth as it gets. We recently spent some time hanging out on a quiet afternoon in the middle of nowhere Pennsylvania and while we were hanging out I fired some questions his way, and this was the result. Enjoy.
DK Bicycles‘ Josh Cox recently spent three very productive days in Scotland filming at a few different parks for this brand new edit. Needless to say, Josh came through with some damn good riding as always. Check it!

It blows my mind that there are riders out there riding on this level that are completely unheard of. Andres Pardo who rides for DK Bicycles down in Colombia is a perfect example. This dude has a MASSIVE bag of tricks loaded with bangers. This new edit is absolutely wild and you definitely need to see it. Anyone know if this guy actually rides this fast or if they sped it up in the editing?
