As seen in digbmx this is another print advert from the #freeandsleazy series featuring Ashley Charles. This was his first trip back on the BMX after a horrendous year on the bench with 2 ACL fix ups. It was great to see him taking things easy and doing what he does so effortlessly.

Part 3 of our #freeandsleazy tour took us all the way into Europe, starting in the U.K and working our twisted path down into France and over to Germany. This video is the result of 10 days in Europe featuring Sean Burns, Shane Weston, IZ Pulido, Chester Blacksmith, an injured Darryl Tocco and the return of Ashley Charles. Phil Demattia was around for the U.K leg and Dennis Erndhart was there for the German days. (more…)
While out and about on our recent Euro tour we spent the wekend in Paris. Lilian Conray was on hand as our guide to riding and eating. He also tok some photos which you can see on a gallery on Figure Magazine.
Nathan Williams rolled up to this classic ledge spot in Shanghai in April this year on the second part of the free and sleazy tour. He knew exactly what he wanted to do and it didn’t take him very long. Andrew White seemed to catch this just right, the day was just starting to end and the session was winding down before we hit up another roadside noodle stop. This advert is out now in the UK Albion issue 10.
IZ pulido has been the stand in guy on every Free & Sleazy trip this year and without him im sure the trips would not have been as good, clearly one of the most inventive riders we have on our AM team. Grab a copy of the latest ‘Legends’ issue of DIG and find our new advert.
I’ll level with you, China was kind of hard for spots at times, especially in the more rural areas. This wasn’t because we were idiots and we couldn’t find anything, its just everything was bumpy, destroyed, run down and totally un safe. This crazy bank was part of a bridge over a river, old Chinese women were hanging there washing along the top and a million people would walk past you in about 30 seconds. A lot went down on this bank including this floating double foot planter by Chet. Shot by the steady finger of Andrew White – the man.
If you havent watched the video yet visit here.
Midway through the 3rd part of the Free & Sleazy tour we came across this rail set up in Shanghai, one of the only steel rail set ups we found. Nathan Williams took no time at all to get stuck in, tightly negotiating this uprail to barspin to oppo pegs.

Chesters Ad from DIG/The Albion. Chester pulled this out of the bag towards the end of the Shanghai trip and nailed it second go (Yes that means he did bail on the first try from right up there).
