Well fuck. As we all heard last month the ending of Factory Media = no more Ride UK but talk about going out with a bang. This final cover features Sebastian Keep with one of the craziest things i’ve ever seen beautifully captured by George Marshall.
Here’s some words from Ride UK.
“Over the last 23 years the cover of this magazine has been the home of the most pinnacle moments in BMX history. Our very last print cover has a duty to be something special, something ground breaking, something extraordinary. For our final cover Sebastian Keep delivers all of the above and redefines the boundaries of BMX in the process.
This is a 22ft gap to wall ride, from a kicker ramp on the elevated road above, into a 32ft high wall ride down the side of a multi-storey car park and into a 12ft quarter pipe. To put it bluntly, this is death defying. It is a giant leap into new realms of preparation, commitment, skill, height, speed and danger. It is monumental moment of BMX history and it is British moment at that – a fitting end to our print history.”

Just a few weeks back Greg Moliterno had a gallery here in Tempe, Arizona consisting of all photos he shot on his trusty Ricoh FF-3af (a simple 35mm point and shoot released the same year he was born – 1982).
