Larry Edgar, Pat Casey, Kevin Peraza, and a host of talented Russian riders blast off in Sochi. Putin even personally congratulates Fly Bikes' Larry Edgar on the win after the contest.

"Don't let the media fool you, Russia is one of my personal favorite travel destinations in the world. So different, so passionate, and so, so wild. When myself, Pat Casey, Kevin Peraza, Larry Edgar, and Catfish were invited to Sochi, Russia, to be a part of the XSA Invitational this year, we jumped at the chance.

A dope event held during the Formula One race in "Sochifornia" along the black sea. With roller coasters and 1000hp race cars flying near by, the best park riders in Russia laid down hammers until the sun went down. If you're reading this description before you've watched the video, then you'll see these dudes are machines. Whip game on point. Quadruple barspins. 540 double whips. Seriously progressive riding that rivals anywhere else in the world. But, what separates these dudes from other countries is the passion and love. It's hard to describe, but trust me, it's something you should experience one day. Fuck the politics, go to Russia!

Thank you to XSA Store and especially Alex Bivol for taking care of us and going out of their way to make sure we had a great time. Sincerely!"
