The Drifter Snow Bikes crew keeping their annual tours going strong. This year they made their way down south to the U.S to hit up a bunch of ski resorts with the one and only Matt Beringer! Here’s 10 minutes of footage from the All Work No Play Tour! These snow bikes look like a ton of fun.
“This year the Canadian Drifter crew took a trip down to the states to meet up with Matt Beringer and the Utah crew where they Slayed it at the Hoodoo Skibike festival! The second part of the trip took the crew to Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood AKA The Outlook Hotel from the movie “The Shinning”. If you’ve been to Timberline or seen the movie you know the boys aren’t leaving anytime soon…” – Drifter Snow Bikes
Anyone who lives in a place where it snows or gets freezing cold knows you an go a little stir crazy when you get stuck indoors. The Nowear crew decided to do a video contest where riders submitted their best clips from indoor sessions they got in, that wasn’t at a skatepark. Based on the submissions, it looks like a lot of riders found ways to get a session in their living room, bed room, kitchen, basement, hotel rooms, restaurants, stores, class rooms and more. We’re pretty sure we saw a full on mini ramp in a basement that looks amazing, too. After all was said and done, Matt Beringer ended up taking the win, and it’s easy to see why! Matt’s style of riding was made for this video contest, haha.
“Year 1 “Ride Inside Clip Contest” from Nowear BMX.
This edit includes everyone who sent in clips from all around the world.
Rules were you had to film a clip from inside (skateparks did not count). We were trying to show the spirit of a BMXer, despite whatever Mother Nature threw at us we would find a way to have fun and ride our bikes.
Clips were accepted the entire month of January 2019. Ten finalists were selected, then the public voted for 1 week to pick the top 3.
Here they are:
1. Matthew Beringer @meberinger
2. Flatland Dave @flatlanddave
3. Emilio Kidd @yungfather_
Congrats to all the winners, finalists and anyone who had fun.
Enjoy this edit and Stay Rad everyone!
Please join us next year as this will be an annual event held by Nowear every January.”

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the “Electronical” DVD, Odyssey have given it a re-up for your viewing pleasure! Like they say, time flies when you’re having fun! Odyssey released their “Electronical” DVD 10 years ago today and even after all these years it’s a complete banger! Hit play to check out this video featuring Jim Cielencki, Jimmy Levan, Matt Beringer, Aaron Ross, Taj Mihelich, Chase Hawk, KC Badger, Adam Banton, Danny Hickerson, Mike Aitken, Gary Young and many more (Talk about a completely legendary line up of riders) going to work on street spots, skateparks, trails and more! One fun fact about this video that always blows our minds is that this was the first full 1080P DVD that came out. Watching it for the first time made everyone’s minds melt since it was some of the highest quality BMX footage many had seen. Even though this version isn’t as high definition as the original DVD, it’s amazing.. Will Stroud did an amazing job on the filming and editing for this one!
Today marks the 10 year anniversary of the Electronical video premiere. Time flies! We have re-upped the video in case you have never seen it.
TJ Lavin and his buddy Forrest have a new podcast called “Anything Goes”… This time around they talk with Matt Beringer who discusses something private that he hasn’t let out to the public before.
It looks like TJ Lavin has kicked off another Podcast / interview style show to get to know different people a little better, this time with his buddy Forrest Griffin. This time around TJ and Forrest kick things off with a story about TJ getting into a heated moment at Starbucks for petting a dog. After that, he gets the one and only Matt Beringer to talk about BMX, working in his garage as a machinist making bar ends, and probably pretty surprisingly to 99% of you, coming out publicly about being gay to the BMX community. Matt has kept this part of his life to himself and out of BMX for many years with only his closest friends and family really knowing, and there’s nothing wrong with that. We’re stoked for Matt feeling like he’s in a good enough place to let everyone know. This one is just short of an hour, but it’s a really good watch!
Hell yeah, Matt! Stoked for you. Still one of the best to ride a BMX!
“This week, we have a very special guest with Matt Beringer. Matt is the most hardcore guy in BMX and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Matt also reveals something about himself that very few people know. TJ also has a story about his morning at Starbucks.
As always, send in your questions to TJandForrest@gmail.com.“
Fit Bike Co.’s 9th day of the 12 days of Aitken takes a look back at Mike’s 50/50 BMX’s “That’s It” video!
It’s crazy how many amazing video parts Mike Aitken has had over the years. Today Fit Bike Co. had Matt Beringer and Shawn “Elf” Walters sit down and watch Mike’s section from the 50/50 BMX “That’s It” DVD. This was another step in the progression of Mike where he went to work on everything brakeless. This one has so many gnarly clips that he makes looks so effortless. Hit play!
“We’re 3/4 of the way through our ‘Twelve days of Aitken,’ which is a retrospective look at Mike Aitken’s BMX career as seen through the eyes of some of those who know him best via a selection of his hugely influential video parts, and what better part to kick off Day 9 than with Mikey’s epic “That’s It!” section.
2007’s Salt Lake City, Utah-based full-length video “That’s It!” was arguably one of the most progressive independent videos to date. And Mike’s section deservingly took the closing honors. The riding in this section is the epitome of his matured style and progression. Newly brakeless in many clips, he utterly lays waste of the SLC area streets, Beringer’s ramp, and Tanner trails. So many classic clips documented on his home turf; and as Shawn “Elf” Walters says, this is easily one of, if not the, best part Mike has made. -RD
