Most people know Van for being a beast on handrails and insane street moves but he has a relatively solid background in BMX racing as well. There’s a new event called Double Cross that Trail Riders of America is spearheading and it’s far different from most sanctioned races. It’s just two dudes, head to head and racing through a course that’s more like trails rather than a typical race track. Watch the video to get more insight behind the event and follow Van through his experience at this year’s inaugural event.
You know what’s better than the iPhone 6? A new video from Dan Foley that’s filled with slow-motion sweetness.

From lofty airs and transfers to a big ol’ nollie, Chad Osburn’s new video from Kink is a treat.
Come hang out with Van for a bit in his Welcome to the Family video from Almond Footwear.
When Van Homan suggested we add Chad Osburn to the GSport team, the decision was a no-brainer. Chad is an awesome, genuine dude, and he’s an incredible and diverse bike rider. He can destroy parks, street, dirt, or anything else you put in front of him, all with killer style and casual flow. So, yep, Chad is on GSport now, and we couldn’t be more stoked.

Dan’s latest video is incredible. Make sure to hit play on this one.
Starting as a product promo for a sponsor, this project took on a life of its own when the company and I parted ways at the end of last year. With the resulting sense of change, growth, and uncertainty, I felt the need to keep this project as personal and true to myself as possible. I couldn’t be happier with how everything took shape and I hope it’s as enjoyable to watch as it was to make. Filmed over the past fall and winter in North Carolina, Maryland, Texas, and Japan. Huge thanks to everyone who helped with the filming.
