A FEW WORDS ABOUT YOUR SETUP:
“I’m pretty stoked to be riding my new signature frame, it’s got a lot of cool new features like the tapered single gauge tubing on the front triangle and engraved headtube. The translucent finish on the green frame is perfect, it’s supposed to look like a whisky bottle and with the Jameson’s inspired graphics it does.”
“My bike set up is pretty compact, I ride the 20.65″ frame which is mid size. It looks tiny on the average person but fits me solid. I like the WZA bars because they aren’t so wide. I ride them uncut with my grips stretched all the way to the bend. Also like 4 pegs and brand new bar ends in at all times.”

Here’s Alex’s edit from the BSD/Unleaded France trip that he, Kriss and Nael Rappeneau were on last month. There are also a few clips from trip guest Jason Phelan in there too…
It was the last day of the trip and for Vince, it started off by waking on a ramp in Hastings, he had spent the night sleeping outside gaining us a few extra points. We still had loads of challenges to do so we got straight to work. David Grant started it off with a spot of clothes swapping with Jane from The Source . However the big points challenges were really what we were after – Alex jumped Jane’s car, Dan pulled a blindfolded hop whip and David blazed down a 25 stair rail first go.
Although pretty much every team member could do a multitude of rail tricks, we couldn’t find a decent over 8 stair rail to do the challenges on. Rain and getting kicked off spots earlier in the week had wrecked our plans and now in Hastings we were faced with a new problem. We wanted to ride the rails at Hillcrest school, but found out they had all been knocked down. So that was it, there wasn’t really much more we could do…
The trip ended at The Source with a BBQ and beers, the top three scores were pretty close with The Make in third with 5,200, BSD got second with 5,500 and Stay Strong won with 5,725. You can see the rest of the results here
Big congratulations to the guys at Stay Strong and watch out for the Ride to Glory issue of Ride mag with the DVD which will be on sale on 13th July…
Yes, finally a dry day. Victoria park in London was on the breakfast menu for us this morning and it was a treat, Kriss and Alex blasted the new park while the rest of us watched on.
Next stop was at some street spots in Clapham, again we got kicked off spots but this time by angry locals not security. We moved on and got some good clips before David fell hard on his face on a rail hop, next thing you know an insane meathead bodybuilder went apeshit at us and demanded we leave, it was more than a sketchy situation so we had no choice but to get out of there. Last day tomorrow, can’t believe it’s all happened so quickly…
So Kriss didn’t manage the 25 pickled egg challenge, after 5 he couldn’t handle the taste so as Nailz would say, he jibbed it off. The streets looked to be drying up but just after we got to our first spot we were hit with rain again so we headed back to the hire van to find someone had driven into the side of it. Great success….not.
We headed north to Hemel Hempstead to check out the new XC park but got there to find the park was a bit wet and we only had an hour to ride before scooter night started. Dan was messing about on a low rail and crashed really hard smashing his thigh which cut the hour short so again it was time for the jib off. Here’s hoping for some good weather…
We woke up rain, loads of it, and it didn’t look like it would let out so we battled through the London traffic to Bay 66 skatepark for a short indoor session. The weather didn’t let up all day so we went and got a tattoo for Dan before picking up 25 pickled eggs and a crate of beverages. The weather is looking great for tomorrow either, any ideas on where to go??
One of the challenges was to re-create a Ride UK cover shot, we chose to re-create the infamous Cam Hardy nosewheelie on a block of flats one from earlier this year. The spot is just across the road from the Ride UK offices so we popped by to say hello before heading off to paint a bike and hit up some water gaps…
As soon as we got to London it started to rain, so we chilled in the BSD LDN apartment and waited it out, but it wasn’t long until the weather changed and we were out on the streets and getting clips. The day was cut pretty short with more rain but we did meet comedy legend Jonny Vegas who told us he was a shredder back in the eighties and went home with a copy of the BSD Any Which Way DVD, sick guy!
