Cody York's Year In Photos
Prior to moving to Long Beach, Calif. and now somewhere abroad, I shot this makeshift turndown gap with Lil' Jon in Milwaukee. If he ever stays in one place long enough, I'd love to shoot more with him because he shreds!
During a trip to Portland, I got to shoot photos with Northwest via N.C. legend Ryan Barrett and it's all I imagined it would be. Here's a smooth, classic, one-footed X-up transfer during an early morning session.
Shortly after moving to Long Beach, Calif. Tony Neyer switched to plastic pegs and has been shredding every aluminum and plastic rail in sight. This icepick in San Pedro, Calif. is a great example.
I don't care how old school fufanus are, I'll never say no to shooting one and I still think they are one of the coolest tricks in BMX. Alistair Whitton with a throwback fufanu near his house in State College, Pa.
On a trip to California to shoot with the Giant crew, we stopped at a park near Valencia and ran into this kid, Mitchell Gamble. He was quietly destroying the park and after he did just about every transfer line, he gapped the bowl for a photo.
Before KP was drinking Bowtruss coffee and living back in Chicago, he drank Intelligentsia coffee and lived in Long Beach. His barspins were the same though -- dialed. This one was straight up and down, not a wall ride out.
While Chad Ring was filming for his Operativ X DIG edit, he did this wild gap-to-thread the needle at the University of Cincinnati.
Ventura, Calif. local, Cody McKenna is one of the many underrated riders in the California scene. With moves like this fastplant to euro, I'm sure we'll be seeing much more of Cody though in the future.
Kurtis Jones take a moment to enjoy the fruits of his labor with a stylish table at the Solstice Trails in Portland, Ore.
Scott Powell has many different flatland bikes. This one he built is called 'The Pedaler' because it has cranks and pedals in the front hub. He calls this move the Pedaling Hitchhiker and watching him ride this thing is quite intriguing.
During a trip to Ann Arbor, Michigan, a local rollerblader tipped us off to this cool DIY spot. Vince Smith boosts a flattie with everything he's got.
