Heated.

Looks like Ride have some fairly justifiable issues to talk about on their site. From my own experiences of being in Cologne during the Masters last year, there were plenty of drunk people being fully annoying, making tools of themselves and getting BMXers kicked out of shops and bars, and - you guessed it - they were all from the UK too (Not that they were any of the people involved in that video, or the "Blame List" in the comments).

Ride have also put up the teams for next week's Ride To Glory, which are:

I'd put my money on it either being Shadow or Sunday, but last year's winners WTP might be in with a shout? Who knows. Speaking of, here is their video from last year's comp, and here's the rest. Just as a health warning, you're probably going to have to watch in the region of just under 2 minutes of pre-rolls if you watch all those videos, so you might want to have a pillow nearby that you can punch/stab to relieve the rage that'll build up...



I wonder what people think they get out of the deal when they remove the 'embed' tag from Vimeo videos? Really upping the chances of distributing their videos, which is the whole point of web-videos? If people are messing around with letting people watch their videos, I'm going to mess around with directing people to their sites. This video was apparently for 1664.

They got top points, but WTP's vid was voted #1 hence they're in this year's comp.
