History of JUNKRIDE Crew:
JUNKRIDE originated from a group of boys who built their bike parks, organized bike events and wanted to move their ride further. The beginnings of Junkride were in 2010 and we launched the web and bike e-shop in March 2011. The main idea was to create a site that would inform about all events around the freestyle bike in Slovakia and an e-shop as a source of income for these activities.
The founder of JUNKRIDE Crew is Marek “Maker” Konkoly together with the first riders Filip Pobočík, Palko Hraško, Viktor Orosz and Aďo Bujalko, then joined Tomas Habaj at the beginning of the hall in Šuran and subsequently other riders like Filip Baník, Michal Kovačovič, Adrián Mihalík and so on further.
Story of our name and logo:
The name JUNKRIDE originated for a long time, we wanted to invent something interesting, simple and symbolic. We played with a few words, but we wanted to use the word RIDE, which describes what we do, we ride, and we have combined the word JUNKYARD, which means scrapheap, and why Junkyard? Freestyle sports was not very popular around 2010 in Slovakia. BMX was like “waste” for local people. Bikers just wandered through streets or forests, no bikeparks, and people did not understand this sport.
We finally put the word JUNKYARD and RIDE together and JUNKRIDE was born!
