We have expanded our team to include an insane crew from the west coast like never before with Andrew Castaneda, Demarcus Paul (who got hurt right before the project), Johnny Raekes, Hobie Doan, Charles Littlejohn, Gabe Brooks and Richard Hernandez. We also have two of our top pros, Augie Simoncini and Colin Varanyak—who originally hail from the east coast—currently calling California home as well. So it only made sense for us to get them altogether and do their thing. We rounded out the squad with a couple of our top east coast riders, Abdul Fufanah and Jonathan “Twinn” Jaramillo, and Clay Johnson from Arizona to add to the mayhem. The riding that went down was wild, insane, technical, dope, crazy, smooth, and above all… motivating to get you to hit the streets right after you watch it. Thank you for your support of Animal and real BMX street riding. —Ralph Sinisi, Owner-Animal Bikes


Our boy Johnny Raekes just dropped some absolute heat on RideBMX!  Johnny’s riding is a perfect union of savage and technical, and well beyond his years.  Welcome to the future.

“Johnny Raekes hails from a small town in the state of Washington where street spots are scarce, but that didn’t stop him from exploding onto the scene last year. It was clear that Johnny had some serious potential and he quickly got scooped up by the prestigious Fiend BMX. Chances are you’re familiar with Johnny by now, he just put out that short/sweet welcome to Fiend video last week… However this 5-minute heater of a section courtesy of Fiend BMX lets the riding do the talking and proves Johnny Raekes as one of today’s most talented AMs.”
