Summer Fix 2011 photos by Matt Lingo

Matt Lingo is one of the most accomplished fixed-freestyle photographers out there and I love seeing the event photos he takes because they always embody the spirit of the time.  He gave Prolly is Not Probably the exclusive look so go over and view the whole set.

That smile lasted one second (exclusive smile for Matt Lingo only) and then it was back to business.

Josh Boothby took first place and this one one of his best tricks of the day.

Steven Jensen’s tailwhip was the highlight of the competition. The crowd erupted when he came out the gate with the whip.

Rory McDermott is Redline bicycles newest rider and here he is busting a long slider.

Joe McKeag took 3rd place and was a really great rider to watch. He even brought his own obstacles.

Matt Montoya has the biggest boosts in the game. He got mad air on his Leader Pharaoh prototype.

London’s own, Oscar Kahn showed up and threw down a massive toboggan. It was great to finally meet him.



Redbull Ride + Style – Fixed Gear Trick Competition

Third Street Works put together this really awesome edit of the trick competition. I still think Tyler’s rail ride to barspin was the sickest trick of the event. Matt’s tweaked airs and monstrous x-ups were definitely super styleé though. Great video so watch!

Thanks Hiro for giving me the scoop.
