TAKE IT Is now on the Animal YouTube channel. Over a year in the making, Take It is another crucial chapter in the Animal video legacy. See what you’ve been missing:
Long time Animal team pro Nigel Sylvester continues to knock down mainstream barriers. Bicycling magazine and Bicycling.com have mostly ignored BMX and its participants, but gave Nigel, and street riding, some shine time with an in-depth interview, published this week. Check it out here:
Animal staff artist and street warrior Ji Hoon Lee coming through with a full edit of creative, outrageous, pegless riding. Ji Hoon did the art for the new 4 AM Bars–available now. Follow Ji Hoon @sadlonelyguy
Long time Animal team rider and Canadian connect Chris Silva following up his “Half Empty” edit from a couple months back with this appropriately named video, entitled “Half Full”. With a traditional bike setup (with brakes and without pegs), Chris goes wild with a bunch of creative moves at unique spots. Check it out:
The latest “Drop The Pin” edit from Ride BMX features Animal team pro Colin Varanyak, who got a lucky roll of the dice by landing right in the heart of SD. Downtown San Diego has plenty of spots (and busts), and as a bonus, we get additional footage from Colin’s Animal teammate Demarcus Paul, in addition to clips from Fiend teammate JJ Palmere. Mellow vibes and solid riding. Check it out.
