Bike Check: Karson Belcourt

Karson cracked his Cult CC1 frame last week, and got to build up this Red CULT OS 21"

Looks pretty sick!




Locals: Teddy Eyob



Teddy, One of the characters that comes through the shop doors quite regularly. I'm pretty stoked to see this kid progress, as he has come a long way from his awkward 14 year old mtn bike days. Now he has a freecoaster, and is doing things that most kids at Mills will never do. Good Work Teddy. 

4130: Age, Hood, and how long you been in Calgary
Teddy: I'm 16, and my hood... is Calgary. NW. and I've lived in Calgary since I was 2. I was born in Saskatoon, but moved here.


4130: What's your average day that you are heading down to the park? 
Teddy: Uhhm, I wake up, put my shin pads on, if they aren't already on from the night before.
4130: You sleep in your shin pads?
Teddy: Sometimes, you come home from a long day of riding, and you just crash on the bed. ... Head down to the park, call a couple of buds. Go home, find a party, get drunk and then do it all over again.

4130: What was your strategy to win the "Springbreak Shootout"?
Teddy: It was just a Facebook status, I don't really think people got into it....well Brock sorta did. I just like put in on Facebook, and "like it". haha
4130: It was more or less a popularity contest? 
Teddy: Kinda! hahaha! I'm sure he could have made a Facebook status he coulda got a couple more likes.

4130: What's your favorite spot in Calgary?
Teddy: Ohhh... Favorite spot in Calgary. (Pause) I like the street section in Mills, but nobody likes to ride street anymore.
4130: Why not?
Teddy: Well Brock Gumby is park as fuck, and Jay is scared of street, and Quintin complains a lot about everything. Yea, that's really it... Red rails is fun, when there isn't broken glass and shit.

4130: So you seem to have a pretty tight crew. Do you motivate eachother? 
Teddy: Kinda, I guess you could call it motivating. It's more like your a pussy if you don't do that certain trick. So I guess it's kinda motivating.

4130: Who is your favorite rider right now?
Teddy: Alex Kennedy - He's got the crazy hair, got four pegs, sickest freecoaster style, and he's just rad!

4130: Any BMX Drama you wanna stir up? 
Teddy: I wanna know what's going on between Catfish and Ian Schwartz.

4130: Favorite Mills Park obstacle?
Teddy: The blue rail. I learned a lot of tricks on that rail. Did my first icepick on that rail, that's where I learned to double peg, opposite double.


4130: Rails or Ledges?
Teddy: Rails

4130: Steel or Concrete
Teddy: Concrete

4130: If you had to blade or scoot, which would you choose and why?
Teddy: Scooter, cause nothing would hurt my Mom more, telling her that I was gay.

4130: Why didn't you win high-hop?
Teddy: Cause my fucking Hoders are huge!

4130: WHo should we interview next?
Teddy: Quintin. cause he's standing right beside me.

4130: Any Shout out's?
Teddy: My Mom, cause she drives me to the skatepark sometimes, and Quintin does too. Emri took me on my first road trip, so I"ll give him a shout out. Brock Gumby, but you have to spell it GUMBY, not Gandy. Uhhmm and Gay (Jay) Park.

Bmx Gallery: 4130 X Ryan Davis "Mistakes & Failures"

Saturday, March 30th marked the 1st anniversary of BMX Gallery: 4130. We were so proud to host Ryan Davis art show "Mistakes & Failures". This guy has helped us since the beginning and we all have known him for years. Boicott has been part of the Calgary scene for so long, putting on jams such as the Stripper Jam, and Toilet Bowl Jam, they all have shown the Calgary scene some awesome times! Everyone at the shop wants to thank all the friends and family that came down and supported the scene and Ryan.  The 10th anniversary of Boicott is this summer, with the party being hosted in Portland, Ryans current hometown; can't wait for that to go down! Special thanks to Pabst Blue Ribbon / Old Milwaukee for suppling the beverages.

The pieces are up till the end of the month, so please come down to the shop and check it out!
