Ritchie Vanpelt is a rider you may or may not have heard of, but this dude is crazy involved in the scene. He runs the Fixated FGFS crew in Netherlands, designs his own products (he made me a custom axle for my Bombtrack hub), knows where to get just about any product you can’t find any more, is an admin for the PS BMX site, and more! He recently got a custom bike made by Ted James, the mastermind behind 14 Bike Co and it turned out beautifully and definitely one of the most unique bikes I’ve seen in a long time.
Pedro, Nelson, and Ritchie shredding Portugal! Everyone looking real dialed and smooth. Love seeing dudes get together and shred, definitely a motivator for me to go out and link up with the homies and ride. Unfortunately Nelson got hurt on the first day, which is a bummer. Heal up dude!
