Vans x Supreme

New Supreme X Vans Spring collection – utilizing original album artwork from New Order’s iconic 1983 release Power, Corruption & Lies. The album’s cover was designed by English art director Peter Saville and incorporates the 19th century painting “A Basket of Roses” by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour. I know not everyones cup of tea but I’m feeling the floral for Spring/Summer 2013.

Get well soon Chris Akrigg!

British rider and six-time National BikeTrial Champion Chris Akrigg tweeted today, “So yeah,shit has hit the fan.fell off a cliff yesterday and broke my leg and wrist.”

James Champion gives a bit more detail:

It’s with distinct sadness to have to inform everyone that the seemingly indestructible Chris Akrigg has badly injured himself whilst out filming for his next video.

Chris was attempting a particularly difficult line, as always, this time down a large cliff drop when he had the accident which has left him with a shattered leg and broken arm. Thankfully Chris was wearing a helmet and his spine was left untouched or things could have been even worse than they already are.

Chris was operated on last night and has had a metal rod inserted through his leg which each of the 4 pieces of bone will be screwed to. His arm was also pinned in the 4 hour surgery. He’s in good spirits this morning but will need all the support of his friends, colleagues and the biking community in general over the next few months to come back strong from this one.

You can send Chris your support on twitter @chrisakrigg on FB or on www.chrisakrigg.com.

We at FSU wish you all the very best and a fast recover!!

 

MacAskill Conquers

Danny is the man when it comes to trials riding, he has a unique out look on his surroundings and performs insanely create shizzle! I really look forward to seeing this film ‘MacAskill Conquers’. Its mad for me to remember hearing rummors about Danny from the guys who used to work alongside him at McDonalds cycles in Edinburgh, to then meeting and seeing him ride at Bristo Square way before things blew up and to where he is today, mind blowing! sick as every Danny.
