Addison Zawada quickly became one of my favorite riders after meeting him at this year 2012 Red Bull ride + style 2. This young rider is not only fast but one of the most humble down to earth people you will ever meet. Recently Addison took a trip to San Diego, Ca. to do a photo shoot with MATT LINGO for his website called REC FAIL. I know both MATT LINGO and LEADER BIKES were more than stoked to see Addison come to Southern California. Be sure to check out the FULL STORY at REC FAIL.
This video was shot really well and I really love the editing. They keep the action coming and give us a good recap of the Keep It Trick Jam that went down on July 1st in Seoul, South Korea. I am really stoked to see that the winner of this contest got an entry to the 2013 Red Bull Ride + Style !!! Congrats !!
RED BULL – ride + style 2012
The year was definitely better than last years RED BULL ride + style. The race course was set up much better in my opinion; last year because of some of the turns on the course you would miss some of the action depending where you were standing. This year they kept everything front and center giving everyone access to get a good view on the action going on. As far as the freestyle course; well I can not say much more than the art work was straight up on point and the layout was set up to accommodate the fixed freestyle riders to put together more creative lines. The format that they had this year was much better letting each rider have time to show off individually compared to 6 man jam sessions like last year. This really opened the course up for these guys by not having to worry about other riders getting in their way. This is the first set of photos I have released from this event and I will be posting the rest later as well.
