Name – Joost Stokhof
Occupation – Illustrator
You've made illustrations for the upcoming Rapha city guide on Amsterdam, what is your connection with the city? I was born and raised in Amsterdam, it's the city that I lived in until I was about twenty. I moved to Utrecht to go to art school. After my education was done I stayed in Utrecht but I have plans to live back in Amsterdam some day.

What, if any, parallels could you draw between design and bike/ BMX riding?
They're both major creative outlets. Any sport not governed by a coach/mentor will evidently allow individuals to put their own touch on things. It's the freedom to experiment that often results in innovation and progression. There's the obvious areas of both design and riding that fall into the more commercial or athletic, but there's always people doing things differently. To break it down to it's most basic form: they're both ways of expressing yourself.
photo and words by John Reiss
When Walton Brush overtakes you on a bike, the first thing you'll notice are the glasses, the second is the lack of perspiration. It is almost unnatural the calm he exudes on the road, choosing a line and keeping it, maintaining cadence and never looking back.
Working on bikes, and living to ride, Walton has been known to ride close to a century before clocking in to wrench at MASH Transit, for whom he is also a team rider. His discipline has led to a stream of wins in the last few years. 'The Walt', as he is known, also took a third-place finish at the Red Hook Criterium in Brooklyn this year, as well as earning his Cat 2 road licence in recent weeks. He scored a podium finish at the SSCX, excels on the dirt, but has continued to find success on the track and road, too. Barely into his twenties, this transient resident of San Francisco is a versatile young rider and something of an enigma. And if you ride in northern California and the Pacific Northwest, you may just run into him.
