Second Life – Episode 1 – Dubki in Kiev

I had the pleasure of riding with these guys at Breakthrough Fest in 2012. After spending a few days with them I believe they’re probably the most underrated group of riders in the world and super friendly to boot. That said I’m always excited when I see a clip from them pop up because I know I can expect some solid riding. Watch the Ukraine & Russia elite throw down at Dubki mountainboard park in Kiev.

Riders:
Anton Shalamentsev
Anton ‘Xima’ Khimenko
Roman Saulyak
Denis ‘Steel guy’ Priymak
