One year ago (from tomorrow to be specific) it was announced that James Kelly would begin riding for Caliber Truck Co. That year has passed, Mr. Kelly has been an all-around badass (as expected) and is now making further moves toward complete and utter world domination. James is, as of today, the newest team rider for Blood Orange. We are fired up for this new connection for the American Dream as well as the rest of the individuals and skate-entities involved! Congrats, y’all!
If you were breathing this past year, you saw James doing the dirt-nasty to some dirt-nasty SoCal hills in “Unbound“. Turns out he was wearing Blood Orange gloves the whole time! Don’t believe us? Why should you? Watch it again below:
The official Blood Orange Press Release reads as follows:
James has been a top rider in the downhill community for years and we couldn’t be more stoked to have him on board. His roots of Northern Califronia are also a perfect match for our Santa Cruz California based headquarters. Don’t just listen to us though, heres a word from James about the whole deal: “I couldn’t be more stoked to be on the Blood Orange Team for 2014! They have a bunch of sick products that I get to shred, and a team full of homies I’d be stoked to ride with all day.”
Team rider and long time friend of James, Liam Morgan also gave his thoughts about the latest addition to the brand: “I’m so fuckin’ hyped. James and I already skate together a lot but now we get to do trips, videos, and photos shoots together. Not to mention he fits the slightly gritty style of the brand perfectly.”
