I will admit that I really do not care much for the Royal HC products nor would recommend them to anyone but their team has tons and tons of talent. I think for his age especially Marco Marquez is one of the best fixed freestyle riders out there. I do not know where to stop or start with each one of these young riders. Elliott Milner has vastly stepped up his game in the past few months and is proving to be a house hold name on the fixed freestyle scene . Then there is “JBall” or Jonathan Ball; this kid is not only a great rider but has some filming skills for sure and I know we both use a Vivitar 7mm 3.5 just like Slumworm. And finally there is young Gabe Garcia who is also one of he youngsters on the team who is throwing down hard ! My hats off to these riders and I can not wait to see more from each one of them.
I ran into Gabe yesterday at LBFG in downtown Long Beach just after he had just broke his back wheel and I realized I totally missed posting this video. He is probably one of the best riders out there that is under the age of 18. Gabe is only 14 and is killing it with his ability to “soak up knowledge and new tricks like sponge” -Paul from Royal HC. I totally agree with him on that statement because this kid is getting better every time I see him ride. He just recently became the first rider sponsored by BOMBTRACK which is so sick ! I posted up some news last week about pro rider SIMON GOMOK being invited to the RED BULL RIDE + STYLE this month. Hopefully there is a way to get young Gabe in this contest !
