This video from Sunday Baltic Triangle Tour that Gary Young, Jim Cielencki and Andrew Brady went on was up on their Facebook exclusively the last few days. But now it’s embedable for everyone to enjoy. Check it!

“The plan for the latest Sunday adventure was to have Gary Young and Alex Magallan venture around the Baltic Sea after the Simpel Summer Session contest while Andrew Brady films and I act as a tour guide, second camera angle and a third rider. This idea seemed flawless until Alex Magallan broke his arm a week before the trip. With Alex out, Gary was going to have to make up for it and to no one’s surpirse he did just that.
The tour takes us from Helsinki, Finland to Tallinn, Estonia then overnight to Stockholm, Sweden and finally back to Helsinki. If you’ve never been to this part of the world then do yourself a favor and go. These photos are shot by Gary Young and Andrew Brady.
The Baltic Triange Tour video from the trip will be on the site at 11 am EST time this coming Friday, but if you like our Facebook page then you can watch it right now by clicking HERE.”
“Vans skaters and Bmx riders join forces to shred a local skatepark on the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base and give the troops a little radness on their Friday afternoon. Of course, snorkel sessions and iguana hunting were mandatory every morning.”- Vans
You know this one won’t disappoint! Watch it already!
“Once upon a time in New Mexico, a handful of dudes in a giant van (@OdysseyVan) drove and flew thousands of miles in search of the perfect rail. With Jeff Z as the trusty tour guide, they discovered plenty of setups in a little sleepy town found in the state’s northern mountains. Justin Simpson (@JShemidragon), Gary Young (GaryBYoung), Sean Sexton (Sean_Sexton) and George Boyd (@Geo_Boyd) were all aboard for the mission. Sean had the misfortune of piercing a giant hole in his knee within what was probably only 15 minutes of getting out of the van, so he’s a little MIA in this video. Fortunately, our TM and all around shredder Jim Bauer (@NameIsBauer) was on hand to score some extra clips and annihilate the longest rail in sight. This is our latest ODSY Vision. Enjoy.
If you haven’t done so already, make sure to pick up a copy of the latest Ride BMX to see even more photos and coverage.”

The finals from Red Bull‘s Dreamline went down this past Saturday. The format was once again very loose with everyone who didn’t make it into finals voting for the top 3 riders. With a line up of Brian Foster, Chris Doyle, Mike “Hucker” Clark, Luke Parslow, Dennis Enarson, Cory Nastazio, Gary Young and TJ Ellis in the finals, good things were obviously going to happen.
After the lines were touched up and watered by the building crew, the guys started rolling in on the trails. Once everyone was good and warmed up, the guys in the finals were given the heads up that the clock was going to start and they had an hour to impress everyone with everything in their bag of tricks.
Needless to say, the final jam turned into a full on session with almost everyone riding; not just the guys in the finals. As the time progressed, things started getting real hot with guys throwing down things they have never done or haven’t done in years. Everyone was vibing so well that once the clock ran out, nobody said anything and just let the guys keep going. It was an amazing decision since that’s when two double backflips came out (Hucker and then Luke Parslow) over the big booter, Dennis was destroying the shark fin, Doyle was dropping 720’s mid set and everyone in general was pushing it harder than any of the riding seen the entire weekend.
It wasn’t until Brian Foster went down with a possible torn ACL and the light was fading that the riders decided it was time to shut it down and cast their votes. It was apparent to everyone who would be taking home the cash this weekend.
I’d like to send a huge shout out to Red Bull for organizing one of the most amazing and relaxed contests ever. This is definitely one event that will go down in the history books as how things should be done in BMX.

The past few days have been, well, a dream. Red Bull gave Anthony Napolitan and his team of builders (Adam Aloise and Cody Nutter to name a few…) free reign on the hills of Coffee Mill Ski Resort in Wabasha, Minnesota to build the best possible dirt course they could. With months of secrecy for organizing and building the course, it was finally unveiled with a video that melted minds. Fast forward a few weeks and some of the best dirt riders in the world are flying into Minnesota wondering where the hell they are.
Thursday was the first official practice day, and Friday brought the qualifiers. This contest was ran entirely different than any other contest because the format was very loose. Eight riders would get a one hour heat to get as many runs down the mountain as they can, while the other eight riders would be judging them. After both heats went through, four riders from each heat were picked for the finals that would take place the following day.
Above you can find 56 photos from qualifiers that went down Friday afternoon shot by yours truly. If you would like to see the images in their full size just give them a click.
