The latest episode of Red Bull‘s Raditudes series has arrived. This time around we switch gears over to the mountain bike world to get some perspective from Drew Bezanson and Ryan Nyquist talking about getting into mountain bikes, what it takes to ride at the professional level in that side of bikes, while still riding as a pro BMX rider and more. It’s a real solid watch, so get on that play button!
Not one, but TWO videos from the Scotty Cranmer Benefit Jam that went down at the Vans Skatepark out in California the other night. Hit play and buckle up for some wild riding from the Am’s to the Pro’s. This looks like it was a completely packed house filled with good times. Enjoy!

Ever wondered what the pros are saying when they’re on the course at the X Games? Hit play and listen in and watch Ryan Nyquist get down during park. If this doesn’t crack you up, you need to see a doctor… Like Ryan apparently did recently, haha.
“It hardly needs to be stated that Ryan Nyquist is a veteran of X Games, but he also happens to be one of the funniest dudes on the deck. I threw a mic on him during park practice and in honor of the Bullshittin’ video we put together last year (which there maaay still be one), put together a pretty lengthy cut of laughs for ya…” – Ride BMX

Mark Losey has just uploaded the entire “Pro Town: Greenville” BMX video he produced online for everyones viewing pleasure! This video came out back in 2011 right around the time Greenville was a huge BMX scene. Although things have calmed down there over the years, it’s still one of BMX’s most well known places in the world. This video features Dave Mirra, Ryan Nyquist and pretty much every other big name rider that has called the place home over the years, giving you some insight into what it was like living there, along with plenty of amazing riding and hilarious extras. Hit play and take this all in! Rest in Peace, Dave. It’s safe to say this video would likely not have happened without you.
“How did a small town hidden in North Carolina become the epicenter of competitive action sports? And what happens when best friends become each others’ main competition? With 34 pros and 21 Gold Medals, Greenville, North Carolina is unlike any town in any sport. The pros themselves explain how Greenville became so important, and what life is really like in Pro Town USA. Featuring elite action sports athletes including Dave Mirra, Ryan Nyquist, Ryan Guettler, Colin Mackay, Allan Cooke, Colin Winkelmann, Marcus Tooker, Austin Coleman, Josh Perry, Kelly Bolton, and many more. This 44-minute film examines what makes this incredible scene tick, with some of the best action of all time, and access that could only come from a true insider.”
It’s been a rough past two days since the news of Dave Mirra’s passing hit, but there’s been a lot of videos and stories surfacing reminding us just how incredible of a person Dave was on and off his bike. Here’s the “Miracle Boy and Nyquist” video that was originally released back in 2001. This is just short of an hour of amazing riding and just insight into the way Ryan Nyquist and Dave were living, along with a look into how they grew up and ended up where they were at that time.

If you follow Ryan Nyquist on Instagram, you might have noticed that he’s been dabbling in mountain bikes for a little while now, and it looks like he’s starting to take it a little more serious because he’s planning on competing in BMX and mountain bike contests this coming year! Here’s a rad video giving us a look at Ryan throwing down on both bikes, along with giving us some insight into his decision to pursue both ventures this year. Based off this video alone, we have pretty good confidence that Ryan will find a couple podiums in both BMX and mountain bikes this year.
Now THIS is a BMX video that, even if you don’t ride trails, is incredibly easy to get stoked on. Haro Bikes dropped this new video of Ryan Nyquist taking his incredibly deep bag of tricks to a handful of trails in Northern California where he calls home. This has a ton of his classics along with a bunch of new combos you probably have never even seen! You’ll want to watch this more than once to process all the combos.
“Ryan Nyquist is 36 years of age. Some of the tricks he filmed for this video are his most difficult and they’re all part of his greatest hits collection reserved for contests runs. Some of Ryan’s signature tricks have been contest winners over the past 20 years.
Look for a few brand new ones too like the truck to suicide to bar, 360 barspin-and-a-half to 360 barspin-and-a-half on the next set, cannonball to barspin and nothing to suicide.
Ryan really hasn’t lost any tricks over the years and here’s proof.
Ryan’s bike of choice is the Haro Lineage.
