Metal Bikes | Northwest Road Trip

13 July 2009, 17.45 | Posted in bmx, videos | 2 comments »

Here’s a fun one – 8 minutes of psychosis from Metal Bikes as part of the Props Northwest Roadtrip. There isn’t really a gnarlier crew out there, right down to the bum bonk that jumps things off. This is the complete part. Word to TheComeUp.

Nike 6.0 Stinkween Video

We showed you the ill Madsteez x Stink Nike 6.0 Stinkween Braata last week, now check out how this creation came to life in this video featuring both Mark Madsteez and Evan “Stink” Rossel and their collabed character creation “StinkWeen” which is itself “a fusion of Madsteez’s scrappy cartoon self-portrait “Weeneze” and a mischievous alter-ego doodle by Stink.” After you peep the vid, head over to and enter your own Stinkween-inspired character to win a hand-painted portrait of yourself done by Madsteez himself. In a complete takeover, Madsteez will also be down in Huntington Beach, California this week painting three murals at Jack’s Surfboards just in time for both the US Open of Surfing and the shoe release on July 24 at both Jacks and the Motel NoTell.

Maloof Money Cup 2009 Recap

Rad Collector - Maloof Money Cup 2009 Recap
The 2nd annual Maloof Money Cup went down this past weekend and Radcollector contributor, photographer and all around ace in the hole, Laura Austin was there in the trenches taking it all in – Snoop show, Kobe drop in and all. Here’s what she had to say about it:
“Some of the craziest skating I have every seen went down at the Maloof Money Cup. With the jam style format of the competition there would be many skaters all throwing down at once, so if you blinked you would miss something. Maloof is set up to replicate something you might find on a street, with marble ledges, brick walls, stair sets, picnic tables, etc, so it forced skaters to get creative. And because of the format you were able to see some skaters that you wouldn’t normally see in contests. With the close to 90 degree weather and constant sun I was feeling the heat just shooting photos, I can’t imagine what it was like for the skaters. Some of the highlights, 18-year-old Alex Perelson threw down a 900 in the vert competition, becoming the 4th person to ever pull off a 900 in a major competition. That combined with his huge airs all day gave him the first place spot and $75,000. Adam Dyet took best trick with a kickflip back tail down the Rincon rail. Street must have been hard to judge with the top skaters all throwing down at one time but Chris Cole was definitely the most consistent, earning himself the first place spot and 100 Gs.”
A bunch of Laura’s photos after the jump. Stayed tuned for some images from Finals in a bit.
