cam hardy ride bmx uk 02 2012 issue 160 - february 2012

Who would of thought that we would be shooting a cover on something as simple as a concrete block. A concrete block which is situated less then 100 meters from Ride UK HQ. About a month ago, these cold and crusty looking blocks outside the Smithfield Meat Market found themselves a new lease of life, when Berlin based street artist, Evol gave them a fresh lick of paint. We joked about shooting a riding photo on these blocks, but there was no doubt about it though as they look pretty sweet whether you’re into “street art” or not. As the shorter-than-normal-Christmas deadline approached we needed a cover and Cam Hardy was on hand to come visit the Ride UK HQ and shoot on the transformed concrete block.

Harry Main first timed flip drop in, and back on the cover. (...) “everyone fell silent and held their breath. He hopped, flipped and landed into the bank perfectly. It was all over in less than 2 seconds but like most epic things you get to witness, it seemed to take an eternity for Harry to come round and touch down”

rideukbmx.mpora.com, may 2012: Caution When Wet! Riding anywhere outdoors during the last month was pretty much deemed a write-off.

He doesn’t smoke, he runs a brake and he’s a wacky guy, but yet rides for the DUB team. Here is Phil Demattia… Enough said. “…What do you call a ginger kid with glasses? Names…”
California Dreaming. Sun, Sea and Schools with the Madera Team. Follow three Midwesterns and a Floridian as team Madera head to California for the sun, sea and schools… “…I think she should have just looked up at the palm trees all around her and thought “Oh I’m in California, lifes good”…”

Empire Strikes Back. Red Bull’s Empire of Dirt drops 4200 tons of dirt on London’s Alexandra Palace. This is not your average BMX contest that comes around each year.

Stay Strong. Somehow finding time for BMX and challenges in a week of pure laughter Read about this year’s winners, Stay Strong, gained the pole position all whilst having nothing more than a good time… “…With the shifting schedules and gradually inverting sleeping patterns, it seemed it was more likely that we’d be getting moon tans than sun tans…”

S&M. Deploy the hoder. Mike Hoder and 4 English guys team up to smash the streets of Sheffield and Hull for a week long adventure of brawls, beers and Little Chef life.

Classic Priest. The Matt Priest Interview. This month’s cover star Matt Priest features a long overdue full length interview telling us more about his sponsors, friends, local spots, traveling and digging trails before school… “It was literally like a carrot in front of my face and I wanted to chase it! If you get to do what you love with your friends, it seems like a no-brainer”
Ill In Asia. DC Shoes In Indonesia, Malaysia And Thailand. We travel with US DC riders Jeremiah Smith, Alfredo Mancuso, Dylan Stark and an injured Rob Wise through Asia, where they visit Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand to do demos on beaches, signings with nuns and tear about on scooters through some of the most diverse places on the earth… “Walking out of the neighborhood and back into the skatepark felt like i had
teleported to another dimension.”
Life On The Run. Colony UK Take To The Road. Aussie brand Colony make the trip over to the UK for their first shop tour. Featuring Chris Courtenay, Ryan Guettler, Sam Dave-Bates, Cooper Brownlee, Liam Vance and of course the most famous of them all… Eddy The Great! “We drove for hours almost every day and almost certainly drove for more hours than we rode”
Ora Francis Jones III Aka – Trey Jones. Cult rider and Florida native Trey Jones, doesn’t follow trends, doesn’t follow rules and most definitely does it for himself. Find out more about this guy and his opinions in his mini interview… “But at the same time I’m not the BMX police, I’m not trying to put rules in BMX or whatever, I just really think that type of riding sucks…”
One More Euro Table. Fly Bikes On The French Swiss Border. After the ‘By the Lake’ Jam in Annecy, the Fly Bikes style cats, Matt Roe, Kevin Kalkoff, Ruben Alcantara and Stefan Lantschner hit up random spots across the French, Swiss border. “Everyone knows that all the Fly riders are a stylish bunch, but Roey has got that extra something special that makes that little bit of difference.”
Easy Ez. An Interview With Eduards Zunda. Eddie Zunda is on everyone’s radar right now after winning this years HUNT competition. We went to his home, which he calls Latvia and shot some photos, took in some traditions and mixed with the locals, good times… “I didn’t know what to do, I was afraid to show him that I had broken the frame he had made me, so I just hid it!”
Randy Taylor Memorial. Rest In Peace. Randy Taylor sadly passed away last month so we decided to dedicate this article to him, featuring a few of his closest friends remembering the good times, the man himself and the things they will miss the most about him… “Randy was a character of his own kind. He lived by his own rules, which he most certainly made up as he went along. His spontaneity and creativity were some of his best traits.”
