ESPN posted up a fresh bike check with Ruben Alcantara. I’ve been running Ruben’s frame the last few weeks and I’ve been nothing but psyched on it.
Fox dropped this new edit featuring Aaron Ross, Ruben Alcantara, Chase Hawk, Sean Sexton, Joe Rich, Liam Eltham and Russell Barone from their team trip (even though half the guys already live in Austin) to Austin, Texas for SXSW. These guys all kill it.
Tomorrow morning I’ll be making the drive up to Minneapolis for the Journeys Backyard BBQ at the Maplewood Mall. Corey Martinez, Nathan Williams, Ruben Alcantara, Brian Kachinsky, Aaron Ross, Tony Hamlin along with some of the Etnies skate team and Metal Mulisha dudes will be doing demos and signing autographs. They will also have bands like the Plain White Tee’s playing. If you can make it, do it. It’s a free event and it’s going to be a damn good time!
Round two of the captains of Nike 6.0‘s “The Pool” invites got dropped today. Dennis Enarson and Ruben Alcantara picked their riders…. This is going to get nuts.

2. Chad Kerley (US)
3. Josh Harrington (US)
4. Jeremiah Smith (US)
1. Ruben Alcantara (SPA)
2. Tom Dugan (US)

Tomorrow they will have Harry Main and Brian Kachinsky’s picks up.
I knew something more was going on with those Nike 6.0 “The Pool” videos that were popping up. It was between a contest of some sort, or a porno. Turns out, it’s not a porno and they are looking to throw another big contest. This time around, they have asked 10 of the worlds top riders to assemble teams to compete in The Pool. Each rider will be picking 3 members to be on their team. The details of the contest haven’t been released, but the 10 captains have been.
Jason Phelan, Van Homan, Dennis Enarson, Ruben Alcantara, Harry Main, Brian Kachinsky, Garrett Reynolds, Sebastian Keep, Alex Kennedy and Drew Bezanson will all pick three more riders.
The full teams will be released soon with Van and Jason’s teams being released at some point today. This is going to be good.
Edit: Here’s Jason and Van’s picks…
1. Jason Phelan (IRL)
2. Kriss Kyle (UK)
3. Geoff Slattery (US)
4. Ben Hennon (UK)
1. Van Homan (US)
2. Brian Foster (US)
3. Darryl Tocco (US)
4. Christian Porras (COL)
