Drew has had a busy couple of months with locking up his Finer Things part, traveling, working and now is on the Tea and Biscuits tour. Read below what the man himself has to say. Photo by Greg Moliterno
“Its been nothing but busy times here in Arizona this summer. I have been getting ready for Elephant Distro Tea and Biscuits Part 2 (which I’m on now) week in the UK. When the trip is over I will be hanging behind in Europe for a couple weeks to travel around with some homies, should be dope. I had Mastroni and Platt come to town last week and I am stoked to say we wrapped up my part for the Finer Things DVD which should be out in a few months. So with a rad trip in the very new feature and finishing up a video part we have been working on for the past year and a half or so I gotta say life has been pretty good lately.” Love, Drew

Day two actually kinda served as the official kick off of the trip. We woke up to some typical English weather & kicked off the morning at Rad BMX again, this time for the actual shop stop. There’s a big scene in the areas surrounding High Wycombe, so the turnout was awesome…but since it was raining we just drank a buncha tea and consumed various Dominoes slices. From there we said our goodbyes to the Rad guys and headed to Rush Skatepark…seemingly in the middle of nowhere a couple hours away. This park was seriously amazing. It was huge had literally everything to offer…(thats what she said) from a dialed & quite realistic street section all the way over to a wooden pump track with a concrete berm. Everyone had a great time and we ended up getting some pretty dope clips as well. A little into the session they gave everyone else the boot and let us have the place to ourselves which was great. Half the time it kinda felt like we were actually out filming street clips on a sunday afternoon simply because there was nobody around. Highlight of the night was definitely Bancroft going in on this giant quarter to sub rail…or possibly Rusty getting a 5 minute long brain freeze. We’re currently crashing out in Bristol and getting ready for our visit to Crucial BMX tomorrow afternoon. Stay tuned for more updates. CLICK TO LAUNCH GALLERY.

Here we are over in jolly Ol’ England on the second installment of the Tea And Biscuits Tour, officially titled “Tea & Biscuits 2: The Refill” You may remember our first one from a couple years back, which was super sucessful & a great time, so we decided to go in for the re-fill. This time around on the Volume front we have Broc, Drew, Myself, and our UK rider M.J. along with Demolition co-conspirators Rob Wise, Kris Fox and their U.K. rider Jordan Aleppo. Unfortunately Connor Lodes was also supposed to be here with us as well but ended up getting turned around by immigration on the way in. So that really blows, but we didn’t let that get in the way of kicking back and having a fun first day crusing around with Bancroft, Rusty, and the rest of the guys at Elephant. We spend the day hanging out at Rad BMX Shop for the afternoon, then headed to Harrow Skatepark which is this crazy dope old park built in the 70′s. We were all kinda jet-lagged but still managed to get a good session in and get acquainted withe everyone. Click the image of Broc skating the moon to launch gallery…

Another one from deep within the endless Volume blog photo pit. Here’s Mr. Hoss mid-line on our ABQ trip last year spring flinging this fence while wearing his favorite fall sweater. I tried to tell him the whole line wouldn’t really work out for the clip, yet he was very deFENCEive about the whole thing. Joey Cobbs on the trigger.

With the heat getting around 115 degrees in the Arizona Summer, there’s definitely not a lack of pools and makes up for some great pool finds. Drew Hosselton and friends made this rad pool video shot around AZ and came through with a gallery and interview too. Check it all out at RIDEbmx.
“There’s not really anything revolutionary you are going to do in a pool, so it’s more about filming what’s fun or exhilarating and just hope it translates well to video.” – Hoss

Here’s some extra clips that didn’t make the cut from Mr Hoss’ upcoming Volume DVD section to promote his new signature handlebar, the BARISTA! With a solid 9″ rise and 29″ of width, this bar is perfect to meet your size quota while still allowing you to spin em when you want. Grab a cup of your favorite morning brew and give Drew a few plays. For more info on the BARISTA bar < click there. ALSO, you may have noticed we've chosen to drop this on YouTube instead of Vimeo.

Erik Hilburn sent over this amazing Drew Hosselton tire slide pic across fire the other week and we couldn’t refuse but to use it for this Barista bar (arrives in March!) spread. This pic would have been sick even w/o the fire but being a typical guy, FIRE just makes everything look better and way more manlier! Click image to go BIG!
