Crazy Russian BMX Street Contest – XSA Invitational 2015

Don’t let the media fool you, Russia is one of my personal favorite travel destinations in the world. So different, so passionate, and so, so wild. When myself, Pat Casey, Kevin Peraza, Larry Edgar, and Catfish were invited to Sochi, Russia, to be a part of the XSA Invitational this year, we jumped at the chance.

A dope event held during the Formula One race in „Sochifornia“ along the black sea. With rollercoasters and 1000hp race cars flying near by, the best street riders in Russia went at it in a jam format, putting together some progressive riding that rivals anywhere else in the world. What separates these dudes from other countries is the passion and love. It’s hard to describe, but if you look closely at the end, you can see tears in the eyes of Artem and Alex…that’s what’s up.

Thank you to XSA Store and especially Alex Bivol (AKA, „when you die, you die“) for taking care of us and going out of their way to make sure we had a great time. Sincerely!
