011 - Kriss Kyle - BMX and Mountainbike rider
Play • 50 min

This week Duncan is joined by Kriss Kyle.

Kriss Kyle is one of the most versatile and creative BMX riders around at the moment, hailing from the quiet coastal town of Stranraer in Scotland he certainly has a good story to tell...

After falling in love with riding BMX as a child, his trips up to Unit 23 Skatepark in Dumbarton became more and more frequent, he was spending less and less time at home and by the age of 14 he had made the move and was living every riders dream of staying inside his favourite skatepark.

Kriss' skill on the bike rapidly improved, and his place in the sport was firmly cemented as he achieved various competitive successes and picked up his first sponsorship deal at the age of 16 before signing with Red Bull on his 19th birthday.

Along with filmers Matty Lambert, and Dave Sowerby, Kriss has made some of the sports most unique films and edits on his BMX, including Kaleidoscope, which with the help of Red Bull saw them transform an empty warehouse in Glasgow into an ever-changing world of movement and illusion for him to pull of some never before seen tricks.

Currently Kriss has been working on his new film “Out of Season” which sees him taking his skills off the streets and into nature as he rides his mountain bike on various purpose built obstacles that only he could have dreamt up.

Kriss’ brand new video “Out of Season” is now online here: https://youtu.be/9sha8AVzJtY
