Building a replica of Gary’s bike may not automatically qualify you for an X Games Gold, but having the right tools for the job sure doesn’t hurt. Here’s what Gary’s flying around on these days. All photos by Walter Pieringer.
Darryl is hands down one of the best dudes you’ll ever encounter. He recently put together this bike check with Props and to go along with it is not only some awesome riding but also roughly twopages worth of thanks to everyone who helped chip in. This is Darryl’s first new bike in 13 years and we’re proud to have had a hand in putting it all together.

We now have Gary Young grips in red and white. They feature a classic ribbed pattern that’s spaced and sized in a way which gives them a cozy, worn-in feel, right out of the box! Contact your local shops or mail-orders to get a pair.
The orange is gone and flat black is back. He’s still rocking some flair though with the red tanwalls we introduced earlier this year and some blue G-Sports rims. Click around the flipbook above to check out what Gary’s riding at the X-Games!
“Mario shreds New Mexico terrain all day, all long. He just recently dialed in his new Brosnasnu Pandora with a bunch of fresh ODSY goodies so he decided to shred and get some photos with his new set up. What he didn’t plan on doing after dialing in a new bike was un-dialing his knee… Mario recently got broke off on a toothhanger gone wrong with a case of regretful footdown… Mario’s part of the knee club now and he’s now awaiting more doctor visits and surgery. I don’t know the full extent of his messed up knee but he should be back up and healthy in about 6 weeks… Get well brotherrrrrrr!” – Alex Bermudez
