United teamed up with Kye Forte and Red Bull to do a limited edition collaboration bike to celebrate the return of Empire of Dirt. You can get a closer look at the bike by hitting this link. So stoked for this contest. Wish I could make it over to the U.K for it!
Head over to LTD State to check out an interview with Kye Forte about all the different things he has going on these days like getting Empire of Dirt ready, running his own show team and now opening a massive shop / skatepark in his home town. It also sounds like Dream Line is scheduled for June this year. Stoked.
So, unless you were already drunk by the time the video was released yesterday, there’s a good chance you already watched the United “Downtime” video. If you haven’t, well, stop reading and press play already. I’ve watched the video twice already and I’m not only really impressed, but I’ve come to a few conclusions that I tweeted which you can check out after the jump…
There’s more that I could say for conclusions but I figured 7 was more than enough reasons. It’s Christmas so there’s a good chance you don’t have anything going on today so kick back and watch this already. Happy Holidays everyone!
