VANS Let it Ride - fueled by Monster Energy
Coming back for the 3rd season in a row the adventure continues with 12 riders spread across two teams traveling to the very south of Spain - the Canary Islands.
Tenerife and Grand Canary, the two main islands will be the playgrounds where both teams are set to explore the terrain, lifestyle and culture of what the islands have to offer.
Each team will be staying in a Vans Team house and be given nothing but their bikes and a van to find the best spots around. After 4 days, the teams switch islands, house keys and van keys - handing over their spots to the other crew giving each a chance to sessions the spots equally.
Two filmers and photographers will join the trip to capture all the adventures both, on and off the bikes and the last day will see both teams getting together for a final party to exchange their stories.
Dates: 4th November - 13th November
Destination: Tenerife & Grand Canary, Canary Islands - Spain
Riders: Dakota Roche (US)

Vans BMX Takes Five Park Riders Into X Games Finals
X Games is heating up in downtown LA and just wrapped up BMX Park Qualifying. The tight concrete park course was challenging for everyone, but the guys who shred concrete on the daily stood out from the crowd. In order of qualifying it was Scotty Cranmer, Chase Hawk, Gary Young, Kyle Baldock and Diogo Canina who made it from the Vans team and will shred in BMX Park Finals at noon on Saturday outside of Staples Center. Be on the look out for Gary Young and hit matching shoes, Sunday bike and Vans shirt. Peep the photo.

Vans X Cult Demo Wrap Up
Despite a crazy snowstorm below 500ft elevation, the crew had an awesome jam at Ramp Rats in Santa Rosa and drove non-stop through the night to make it to the Vault Skatepark opening back down in La Habra. The locals were shredding along side of the Cult pros and vibing off each other with some really amazing riding. Both these skateparks are wooden and indoor, and both utilized every square inch of the square footage to build some rad ramp set-ups.
The trip is a wrap and some of the crew is still kicking it in Orange County for part of the week working on Cult projects so you might catch of glimpse of the guys riding around if you are out and about. The footage from this trip was pretty insane, and there were lots of double angles on the bangers. The Cult X Vans shoe hits the stores in June, so in the meantime look for some photos to pop up in Ride Magazine and a bangin' edit to drop in May.
