Season 2, Episode 1. Things have changed a little bit with the Unclicked Podcast. Dennis got a bit burned out, so we struck a deal where I’d (Ryan Fudger) would take over the podcast and he’d still be involved as much or as little as he’d like. Fortunately, we have several podcasts in the bag already and Dennis has been part of every single one. New logo, new co-host, new location, and a new dog that interrupts the podcast, but it’s still the same Unclicked. The first episode back is with the one and only Gary Young, who happens to be my best friend and have one of the best table tops in BMX.OurBMX.com
This video is a video that jared from right before he moved to Austin Texas. Jared is one of the best bike riders I have ever seen his ability to just move the bike however he wants is always so amazing. He is a man of many talents, and bikes is most definitely one of them! These are some of Jared’s best clips that he has filmed and I was honored to have been filming and growing up with such an amazing biker rider.YOUREWLCOME
Over the years I have spent a decent amount of time riding by myself. BMX is all about the community and sharing the experience with friends, however, riding by yourself provides a different kind of satisfaction. I personally like a balance between the two. While riding solo you have complete control of when/what to ride, and for how long you may want to try one thing. Sure, traveling and exploring new territory is always rad but there is also something to be said about riding familiar terrain and seeing new potential in old spots. Like unlocking new levels in a video game, the more tricks, confidence, and bike control you obtain, the more options you have at a spot.
This quarantine has been a strange time for just about everyone. I’m grateful I was able to spend the onset of it riding a bike (one of the best things you can do for your mental health) at spots I grew up with. Take care of yourself (stran) y’all!
You can watch the full CHAPPED CLIPS video below in case you missed it.
Remember when slappin’ fives was chill and chapped lips was the biggest thing we had to worry about? Back in March we whipped the van out to Las Vegas and flew in the rest of the team for 10 days of amazing spots, good times and dry climates. Everyone’s lips were chapped by day 2. Enjoy Brett Silva, Broc Raiford, Julian Arteaga, Aaron Ross, Gary Young, Erik Elstran, Jake Seeley, Alec Siemon, Jared Duncan, and Justin Schual in “Chapped Clips”.

New Elstran interview up at OurBMX.com!
If filming video parts were a science then Erik Elstran would have a Ph.D. Not only are each of his video parts super memorable thanks to his extraordinarily creative ideas, but the level of his trickery is mindblowing as well. 2020 is shaping up to be a spectacular year in the Elstran video part library with a mega section in Madera’s ABD, followed by the Pro Part we released last week, and there’s still the X Games Real BMX part scheduled to drop in August, which according to Erik, will be “some of the best riding I’ve ever filmed.” Safe to say that’ll be an earthquake of a video part! For now, we caught up with Erik about all the above and talked about some of the big moves happening in his personal life as well.OurBMX.com
Hit up DIGBMX.com to check out Gary’s current ride.
Just prior to the Coronavirus pandemic gripping the U.S. (and most of the planet at this point) Sunday took a team trip to Las Vegas, Nevada early March for 10 days. This was possibly the last company BMX team trip to happen since then. We caught up with a few dudes on the team and dove into all the specs of their personal rides just before everyone flew home. A few days later, most cities (including Vegas) went into lockdown mode, and social distancing rules went into full effect. Up next is longtime DIG Staple and all-around shredder Gary Young and his Soundwave setup.DigBMX.com
