The Radio Bikes team threw down this weekend LIVE on US TV at the Nitro World Games in Salt Lake City. Proving that hard work and pure determination pays off, Brian Fox came away with 3rd place in BMX Triples and $10,000 in his back pocket as well as driving home in a Polaris Slingshot for his award as Athlete of the contest.

Jacob Bailey rose to the occasion and battled the huge 45ft "Giganta Ramp" and came home with a well deserved 5th place in Best Trick, and landing his very first 1080 Frontflip / Corked 1440.

You can watch the boys journey over the weekend in a new 3 part video series in association with Radio Bikes which is now LIVE on Youtube, filmed and produced by Andrew Knight / Elevated Perspective.

 

We spent a day riding some of the best parks in Holland with Brian Fox, Kenneth Tancre, Leon Hoppe, Levi Weidmann and Robin Kachfi before the Pro Freestyle last month and here are the results.

We had a blast at The PRO Freestyle last weekend in The Hague. Take a look at the whole crew smashing it, captured behind the lens of our very own Robin Kachfi.

The Radio team was out in full force this weekend at the Pro Freestyle contest in The Hauge. Young rookie and local boy Levi Weidmann took a nasty slam on a 540 double barspin during Park qualifying and was taken to Hospital with a head injury. Luckily Levi is made of tough stuff and was released out of Hospital later that day and joined the crew in the stands to watch the finals yesterday.

Both Belgian powerhouse Kenneth Tancre, and US Pro rider Brian Fox went in during the PRO Park Finals. Kenneth brought his signature mix of style and big tricks to the course and came away with a well deserved 5th place. Despite qualifying in 1st place going into the finals, Brian went down hard on a double backflip transfer but managed to get back on the course and pull it to take home Best Trick.

The street guys on the team did not disappoint either. Robin Kachfi and Leon Hoppe both took to the course during the Street contest, bringing their own unique lines and tricks to all the rails, ledges and bank setups. Leon really put in the work and was rewarded with the award for Street Best Trick for his railride to barspin on the S rail.

You can watch both the highlights of the event as well as the full LIVE recap bellow.

 

 

We're kicking off Summer in style and are off to The Netherlands this week for the PRO Freestyle Contest in the European beach paradise of The Hague, and then 4 days in the business capital Rotterdam to shred as many spots as we can put our tires on. We're stoked to be hanging with new US team addition Brian Fox, as well as Leon Hoppe, Robin Kachfi, Kenneth Tancre and Dutch rookie Levi Weidmann.

We'll be posting updates regularly so be sure to follow all the action on Instagram @radiobikes and via #RADIOBIKESNL. 

Huge props to our guy Jacob Bailey who smashed it at the Nitro World Games Qualifier in California this week and landed himself a place in the main event in Salt Lake City next month alongside Radio teammate Brian Fox who was already pre-qualified.

Robin Kachfi just dropped a rad video from his recent trip over to the street Mecca which is Rotterdam.

Hiding somewhere on the hard drive, we just unearthed some lost footage from our Great North Tour back in 2015 which never made it online.

Featuring riding and antics from Leon Hoppe, Kenneth Tancre, Basti Schweizer, Christian Lutz, and Christoph Werner.
