Simple Bikes teamrider Frank Coggins has come through with a little web edit of the riding at the Roskilde music festival. The filming is a bit sketchy, but if you’re familiar with that festival you know that beer is always at hand. Quoting Niels newspost over at the Simple site:
“Quite impressive filming taken into consideration that Frank was busy balancing beers in the other hand while filming.. Good stuff.”
Right now I’m sitting outside in the sun having my lunch which consists of a big bowl of chicken flavoured noodles and a big cup of coffe. It’s nice out here, warmer than inside where I’m freezing my ass off.
Today Team TUMULT got their first ever batch of t-shirts. The design is a collaboration with Andreas Houmann of Sweet Leaf. They cost only 175 SEK (approx. 30USD) + shipping. Printed on American Apparel and they come in white with black screen print or black with white discharge print.
Yesterday at work I saw this new tee from DC Shoes. It features a bunch of sprocket designs laid out on the front of the tee. I was surprised to see a very familiar sprocket on there, the middle one in the right column. That’s the “Copenhagen” sprocket from Simple Bikes. Well known to me since I did all the CAD drawings for it from Niels’s designs. Nice one.
So, the lame “anonymous” dudes on TheComeUp are basically accusing Cooper @ Focalpoint of putting a fake photo on the cover of the latest issue. Here is one little piece of proof that Mr. Anonymous, Anonymous and Anonymous are full of shit.
This is the shitty photo I got that day. Just another angle, slightly off on the timing and with a chopped off head, but it does show that it’s for real.
The new issue of Focalpoint is out. The cover photo of Kym Grosser is just insane. I was there that day and all I can say is that I would not even jump that set of stairs without taking hands and feet off…
The issue is filled with interviews and bios of known and unknown riders as well as roadtrips and scene reports. And yeah, I’ve got an interview in there too…
Cooper definitely did a good job with this issue. Go get one!
Swedish FMX pro Fredrik “Cross-Fredde” Johansson was the first ever person to flair a MX bike. He pulled it at the Red Bull X-Fighters in Madrid and needless to say he won the prize for best trick. Big props to Fred for pulling that off. His foot did slip off a bit, but damn. I’ll let him off the hook for that one.
Fredrik is also the main force behind the event Sweetspot Allstars that happens in the beginning of every summer at Fred’s very own training compound where he’s got lots of kickers and jumps, a wallride, foampit for MX and a fiddy track. There’s also a mini-ramp there to ride, which is good for us BMX-riders.
