We’re well passed 2013 now. I’d started this way before Christmas and then I found myself asleep on the sofa for three days with a shitty hat on, only getting up for a pint of Gaviscon and a pickled egg. Alas it’s here, RideUKBMX’s A-Z of 2013. Go stick the kettle on, finish off the last of your selection box and tuck in to what we’ve had on our plate all last year.
Aaannnd that was easily the cheesiest piece of text written… Soz
A – Alex Kennedy
AK won Street Rider of the Year 2013 at the RideUKBMX Reader Awards. He was all over the planet last year, killing it in his own unique style, even bringing the gum tyre trend with him. Alex is an awesome character, eats weird shit and lives an incredible life. His Primo edit above was one of his standout sections from 2013.
B – Barcelona
Barcelona has been the go to city for years. Amazing people, insane riding spots, great food, street beers the list is endless. 2013 once again played host to everything BMX, we had Dub Jams, X Games and a plethora of team trips. The above images are from the Federal Barca Flip book. Here’s a stack of Barca content from last year, click through this and brighten your day.
C – Cottingley Spine
This was a huge hit for us last year. Take Fathead to the worst spine on earth, mix in some gale force winds, rain, and you guys giving him instructions of what to do and this is what happens. As per Fathead made this whole edit his own, it was done for a bit of fun and it worked a treat.
