BMX – ANIMAL HOUSE LA

Animal took their tried and true recipe of no-frills street riding to the urban sprawl of Los Angeles. Featuring their west coast contingent along with some east coast heads, the squad includes Augie Simoncini, Colin Varanyak, Andrew Castaneda, Johnny Raekes, Hobie Doan, Abdul Fufanah, Jonathan “Twinn” Jaramillo, Charles Littlejohn, Richard Hernandez, Clay Johnson, and Gabe Brooks. The dudes put a few new twists on some old spots, and unearth some fresh gems as well.

“We have expanded our team to include an insane crew from the west coast like never before with Andrew Castaneda, Demarcus Paul (who got hurt right before the project), Johnny Raekes, Hobie Doan, Charles Littlejohn, Gabe Brooks and Richard Hernandez. We also have two of our top pros, Augie Simoncini and Colin Varanyak—who originally hail from the east coast—currently calling California home as well. So it only made sense for us to get them altogether and do their thing. We rounded out the squad with a couple of our top east coast riders, Abdul Fufanah and Jonathan “Twinn” Jaramillo, and Clay Johnson from Arizona to add to the mayhem. The riding that went down was wild, insane, technical, dope, crazy, smooth, and above all… motivating to get you to hit the streets right after you watch it. Thank you for your support of Animal and real BMX street riding.” —Ralph Sinisi, Owner-Animal Bikes

GT Bikes Video Premiere

Augie Simoncini – Triptape Photos

Augie Simoncini is having a good year.  He just dropped a killer part in the new Trip Apparel – Trip Tape and got a well deserved add to the Fiend pro squad. We recently caught up with Augie to see whats up with the Trip vid, Fiend and what’s next on the agenda for him. Enjoy some photos from the Triptape courtesy of Chris Mortenson.

You’ve got a banging section in the new Trip vid. How was it filming for the video?
Filming for TripTape had similar vibes to that of the Deadline video. Filming with Ty Morrow was dope. He understands me and the way I like to approach set ups. Not to mention when he wasn’t filming he was dropping hammers of his own. He killed it on and off the bike. It makes you want to push yourself to do your best shit possible. That’s how it was on any mission with anyone from the crew. It’s an honor to have a section along side some of the best riders in the world.
Congratulations on getting on Fiend. How did that come about?
Thank you! A dream come true would be a lie. It’s something I did not see coming. The boys over at Fiend have always been family and always helped whenever I’ve needed something. At the end of the first Triptape premiere they completely surprised me at the end of the video with a dope cake and hit me with the news. I was completely caught off guard. The cake even had my graphic which they had been working on for months. Much love to the homie @Freakorico for killing it. I couldn’t believe it. Honestly it didn’t set in until the next day how crazy everything in my life had just become. A whole new door just open up in my life.
What’s next for you?
I’m trying to take advantage of the time and opportunities I have on my bike. Can’t take this shit for granted. It’s a privilege to still be doing this at 30 years old. Triptape was life as far as bmx goes for me for a while. Once the timeline had started to come together I was able to be more picky about what tricks I wanted to finish up my section. That gave me an opportunity to start stacking HD footage for a future Animal Bikes edit. Definately trying to keep the good times and good vibes rolling into this project. Having a new project to work on is both motivating and refreshing. I just want to put out the best footage I can. Looking forward to getting it done.
