Stoked on Stoked Mentoring

One of the best feel-good stories in the world of action sports right now is being fueled by the passion of Mr. Action Sports himself--Sal Masakela.  Sal is not only the face of the X Games (and a co-host of E's "Daily 10"), but is a budding philanthropist that co-founded the incredible Stoked Mentoring organization with Steve Larosiliere.  In their own words,

"Stoked's mission is to develop
Teens with
Experience, and
Determination through action sports and mentoring."

The World of Red Bull

If there is one company that has single-handedly changed the world of action sports for the better, it is Red Bull.  Everybody who has anything to do with action sports should thank this energy drink giant because it is likely it has improved your favorite action sport in some way, shape, or form.  Even though many other energy drinks have stepped up and supported an array of action sports in recent years, none of them would have been here without Red Bull's creation of the energy drink in the first place.  Following, I will just touch the surface of some of the impacts that Red Bull has had in just one of the sports that I love.

3 Newly Crowned BMX Champs

After the dust has settled on the Dew Tour in Orlando this past weekend, 5 athletes stand tall as the new champions.  Although I love watching skateboarding, I was only able to catch the BMX events of the Orlando stop and will cover what I saw.  Sorry time!
