It started with planned trip to Texas for the 3rd stop of the USA BMX Freestyle series – but then we got a DM from Cody Hennings. Cody is a local rider in the Dallas/Fort Worth area who also happens to own a private indoor ramp-filled warehouse called the Safehouse. We quickly took him up on his offer to check out Safehouse, and team Mongoose headlined by Mykel Larrin and Ben Wallace spent a full day riding this BMX utopia!
In 1985, Mongoose rocked cul-de-sacs, sidewalks, and skateparks across America with the creation of the Miniscoot – the first scooter with pneumatic tires, hand brakes, and BMX handlebars. Next Tuesday (3/22), Mongoose will resurrect the original icon with the launch of the Miniscoot II. The Miniscoot II features a chromoly frame, 12" x 2.25" air-filled gumwall tires, Pro Class handlebars, and the classic colors and graphics of its 1987 predecessor that became a legend. The Miniscoot II is the newest addition to the Mongoose Classics line, which was brought to life in 2021 with two '80s BMX throwback models, the Supergoose and California Special.
Setting new goals for the new year is something most of us do. How can you better yourself? Is my training on point or is there someone out there who can teach me more? Is my equipment on point? Do I need to focus on Pumptracks? How do I do on the 8 meter hill? Where is the room for improvement? Mongoose's Payton ‘P-Nut’ Ridenour has tasted what Elite Racing is like and is now building on being stronger in 2022.

It’s even got a pivoting visor to shield your eyes from sun, wind, and rain. Plus, it’s cool. Seriously, just look at it. Gear up for your next ride with the Title Full Face Helmet.
What has the UCI Pump Track World Champion title meant to you since you got it? Payton Ridenour: It was a dream come true to win the first ever rainbow jersey given out for pump track! I think it's every cyclist's goal to win a world championship title, so to win the entire event was incredible.
Is it fair to say that BMX Racing comes first for you followed by riding Pump Track? Payton Ridenour: Yes, BMX racing comes first for me and then pump track. It's really convenient that I can transition so easily from racing to pump track too. I train specifically for racing and that transfers right over to the pump track, and my bike set up is the exact same for both.
Leading up to the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships in Lisbon, Portugal, have you ridden more pump tracks lately?
