Andrew Castaneda – Welcome to the Pro Team

We are pleased to announce that Andrew Castaneda will join the pro team for 2017.
Andrew began riding almost a decade ago in Santa Ana, California. “The BMX scene was so tight. We’d ride around Civic Center all day just hitting up spots. We eventually got cars and ever since we’d just drive around So-Cal on the hunt for them gem spots. Being able to ride the Santa Ana banks before the remodel was a blessing, RIP!”
Andrew brings a smooth, but raw Cali style to the team that speaks for itself. “Growing up, I appreciated a rider with style. Chase DeHart and Eddie Cleveland influenced my riding. These dudes changed the way people rode their bikes.”
“I remember having a shit Dyno bike, but I’d always cop some purple Edwin grips. Now being able to ride for an OG company like Animal is tight AF!”
We are more than hyped to have Andrew be a part of the Animal family and look forward to the future. Be on the look out for more from Andrew in 2017.
Welcome to the team Homie!

Riding With Animal – 360 VR


We are excited to share “Riding with Animal”. A 360 video experience that was put together by our friends, @Glennppmilligan and @andydreadsbmx at united-realities.com. The video is an interactive experience that features Edwin DeLarosa, Augie Simoncini, Andrew Castaneda, Brenden Tombow, Charles Littlejohn and Rocco Giuseppe.  You can watch this video on your desktop computer. You will need to use your mouse to move around in the 360 environment. On your mobile device, you’ll need to have the YOUTUBE app for the video to work. If you have VR goggles then you already know how to use this, and this will work with them!  The music is by producer and DJ, Mr. Green. It’s a dope song called Superpowers featuring

“Riding with Animal” 360 VR BMX Teaser


In the Animal videos you may have noticed that the team has always been more than just a few good guys on the squad. They are friends, and for us riding has always been about friends hanging out. That’s why we’re excited to work with our friends at united-realities.com, @Glennppmilligan and @andydreadsbmx to put together a new experience.  This video gives you the feeling you would have if you were to hang out at a session with the Animal team.  On Tuesday, June 21st we are excited to share “Riding with Animal”. A 360 video experience featuring Edwin Delarosa, Augie Simoncini, Andrew Castaneda, Brenden Tombow, Charles Littlejohn and Rocco Giuseppe.  Since this is kind of a new experience, we wanted to send out this test clip, so people can get a better feel for how it all works.  This test clip is the guys warming up at a skate park before going to ride street.

You can watch this video on your desktop computer. You will need to use your mouse to move around in the 360 environment. On your mobile device, you’ll need to have the YOUTUBE app for the video to work. It’s well worth the experience if you haven’t played with any 360 or VR video yet. If you have VR goggles then you already know how to use this, and this will work with them! The music is by producer and DJ, Mr. Green. It’s a dope song called Superpowers featuring
