Van Homan - DIG X SNAKEBITE Podcast

We sat down with Van Homan while he was visiting Portland late in 2015 and had one hell of an epic discussion. It feels like we covered almost everything and anything ranging from how much of a game changer Standard 3/8's heat treated axle's were when they came out, to the classic Trailblazin' video, filming for both the Little Devil videos, keeping that mindset to keep pushing your riding as you get older, and so so many other things. Van just started talking before we were even ready to go so we just hit record. Enjoy this unscripted and open conversation with a truly influential game changing legend of our time.Subscribe to our DIG BMX X SNAKEBITE Podcast series on itunes | SUBSCRIBEIn collaboration with our partners: www.snakebitebmx.com | www.fitbikeco.com | www.danscomp.com​

Eddie Fiola - DIG X SNAKEBITE Podcast

We sat down with Eddie Fiola, concrete ruler and the original 'King Of The Skateparks'. We go over riding in the late 70's to early 80's, Jeff Watson, his GT days and how that ended in the middle of BMX's biggest recession, the movie 'The Hangover' and how Ed Helms used to ride plus so much more. Eddie was BMX's first super star and it was awesome to learn and hear how much he cares about BMX and that getting out on the bike with some good friends is what still inspires him.

Dave Voelker DIG BMX X SNAKEBITE Podcast

One day late in 2015,​ and after BBQing and riding the legendary Dave Volekers' backyard ramp in his hometown of San Diego for about an hour, I sat down with him and pressed record for this latest DIG X Snakebite podcast. We discussed the worlds first ever street contest, his Dyno days, coming out of retirement to ride in the X Games, caring more about true soul riding more than competing, and so much more. Dave's true passion for riding has always seemed shine through since his first legendary video and magazine appearances in the eighties right through to today, and I felt so privileged to share the stories some of those experiences first-hand with Lord Voelker himself!​ - SJ​

Simon Tabron DIG BMX X SNAKEBITE Podcast

"It was so much fun doing this podcast with the legendary Simon Tabron. I was excited to talk with him about the amazing vert scene the UK had in the 80's and 90's, as well as vert rivalries, 900's, what type of riding he likes to see and so much more. We even went off the rails and talked about how a bike really feels, breaking down how Simon looks at his bike now compared to 20 or 30 years ago. This is a good one!" - Shad JohnsonA www.digbmx.com release in collaboration with www.snakebitebmx.com/Subscribe to DIG BMX Podcasts on itunes itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/dig-b…d1024768508?mt=2Find all our podcasts in one place on the DIG BMX APP.

Ron Wilkerson DIG BMX X SNAKEBITE Podcast

In order to update our DIG X Snakebite podcast series we thought it would make sense to upload Shad Jonhson's first ever podcast which was originally released just prior to the start of our collaboration early in 2015. This one is with the one and only Ron Wilkerson, who is quite possibly the 'punkest' guy in BMX, and someone whose influence runs a lot deeper than you may think. This is someone who continually rebels against the norm, always does things on his terms, and most importantly, sticks to his guns and acts like the true DIY pioneer that he is... not just using DIY culture as a fake marketing tool. Here's what Shad said right after they met for the pod way back when."Bruce Crisman called me and said Ron Wilkerson was in town and I should come over and do a podcast. That was enough for me! I cruised over and we crammed into a room and just talked. Bruce and I talked to Ron about a bunch of things. Hot topics were why he changed the name Wilkerson Airlines to 2-Hip, how the 2-Hip team got kicked off of the Warped tour, the real origin of the abubaca and numerous stories about the 2-Hip van and Kevin Martin blowing up engines!" - Shad JohnsonA www.digbmx.com/ podcast produced in collaboration with: www.snakebitebmx.com/​

Nina Buitrago DIG BMX X SNAKEBITE Podcast

​​Nina Buitrago​ is perhaps the best known and most respected female BMX rider in 'our' wide world of bike riding. Earlier this year Snakebite's Shad Johnson sat down with her in Austin and talked about pretty much everything, starting with those early days of growing up on Long Island and being mentored up by Manmade's Daren Meenan and street legend Vic Ayala. ​We follow that with a chat about Nina's midwest days spending time riding the original Chenga and working at Ray's MTB park, and in there somewhere we pretty much talk about everywhere she's lived and all the scenes she's been a part of. We also talk to her about the growth of the girl BMX scene and her endless search for other girl riders in the early days, not to mention travelling, living in NYC during 9/11, getting into fist fights in Paris, and so much more. Nina has not only done a lot for female BMXers but has contributed so much more to BMX in general by keeping the spirit alive of finding new riders and making new friends. Enjoy!​Editors note: At one point Nina chats about the first time she heard her now adopted nickname (Nina Burrito) at the Brighton Backyard Jam from who she thought was our legendary DIG photographer Ricky Adam. Turns out it was his video making farting brother, Peter Adam (DIG, Still United etc). The DIG influence runs deep for all the important stuff eh.Produced in collaboration with: www.snakebitebmx.com/​
