Thanks to a fleet of new vehicles, along with new clothes and weapons to accompany a range of new illicit business ventures, GTA Online: Bikers unearthed a whole new world of creative possibilities for the Snapmatic community. Here, we proudly present the winners of the #BIKERS Snapmatic Photo Challenge, along with some exceptional honorable mentions.
#BIKERS SNAPMATIC WINNERS
Congratulations to the five chosen winners of the #Bikers challenge, each of whom took home a cool GTA$1,000,000 for their efforts.
The streets of Los Santos are swarming with some of the baddest Motorcycle Clubs and independent riders you’ve ever seen and as proof, we’ve gathered some of the best videos, GIFs and Snapmatics from members of the GTA Online community.
Zadrium and other members of the prolificREBL Crew got right to test driving some of the vehicles, weapons and businesses from the new update. Similar to his work on the Western-themed Ricochet that we featured in August, Zadrium perfectly captures the tone and feel of what it means to be an outlaw.
Only able to sit idle around their Clubhouse for so long, members of Western Brothers MC take their bikes for a twilight ride. Watch for a solid melee attack at the end, causing a rival member of The Lost to eat dirt.
There's no better way to spend your day off than racing through traffic on two wheels. DeejayJeanP of Logic Films suits up and puts the new Shitzu Hakuchou Drag bike through its paces across the sunny streets of Los Santos.
Even those with the roughest of edges can't be hardcore all of the time. From the throne of his Faggio Mod, Vine's Koopapoopascoopa proves that under all that macho posturing is just a man in heart-emblazoned boxers.
The Crew Cut highlights exceptional grassroots community activity, events, accomplishments and other happenings across the thriving Social Club Crew scene. If your Crew is doing something special that you think the Social Club community needs to know about, tell us all about it at email@example.com - you might see your Crew featured in an upcoming edition of the Crew Cut.
In the latest edition, check out Crews throwing grandiose car shows, real life boating with the Hillbilly Agenda, plus squads battling for supremacy in Stunt Races and enjoying all the fun and mayhem from their Further Adventures in Finance and Felony.
While it's clear who leads the way in terms of Stunt Race wins, Psycho Patriots lays claim to the highest win percentage overall, victorious in just a shade more than half the Races they compete in and almost double the win percentage of the average GTA Online racer. Just shy of that win rate is the formidable Advanced Crime Group with a solid 48% win rate, followed by UMAD Motorsports in the 3rd spot with 42%.
THE LUCKERS CREW - FINANCING FELONIES
Schwiizer101 and The Luckers Crew have gotten fully organized, putting together a Finance and Felonies-inspired video and some choice Snapmatics to let the streets of Los Santos know their daily operation is open for business.
The Luckers have really gotten into the swing of things, using their corporate HQ as a solid base of operations for stocking their warehouses.
Crews also continue to coordinate and gather for other fun events and audacious outings in GTA Online. Here are just a few we've spotted as of late bringing the heat, several of whom are linked by the "low" life.
MagnarHD and the REBL Crew wasted no time in hitting as many Cunning Stunts as possible with the update's release this summer.
The Lowly Gentleman celebrate two years of getting down and classy.
The ever versatile TheLowlyGentlemen, well-recognized here at the Newswire for everything from Snapmatics to all-star car meets, recently celebrated two years as a close-knit and prolific vehicle-based Crew. Member LS_Drifts commemorated this milestone by capturing an anniversary meetup, shot over three different sessions with ninety Gentlemen and a wealth of cars represented. Also worth mentioning is this beautiful vid from Ferino Design, whose slick and stylish video presentations you may remember going as far back as before the release of GTAV. This time, Ferino documents his time spent with TLG (which he refers to as the "#1 Stance and Crew Meet group on GTA Online") back in the summer of 2015.Coining this presentation as his "strike back" after a long hiatus, it covers the events and outings of an entire summer Ferino spent covertly shooting at every big Crew meetup and nostalgically ties together the very best moments of camaraderie, beauty and cars the summer of 2015 with TLG had to offer.
Another one from LS Drifts, this time taking it slow-n-low with Stance Department DE.
Drifts has been quite generous with his talents, putting out this video with German-based Stance Department DE. Comprised of several TLG members, STDP has been busy since their founding in July, covering several of their car and truck meets on their official YouTube channel.
CoreGaming made their debut on the Newswire last August and have been going strong all through 2016.
CoreGaming PS4 - led by none other than Daniel1Plainview - celebrated their one year anniversary in grand fashion, collaborating with musician Laszlo to put together this cool presentation capturing the cool vibe and bond of the Crew. Members can even log into CoreGaming's website to sign the Crew's official yearbook for posterity.
Hillbilly Agenda - ON A BOAT!
Crew Leader Knoxnerd and the tight-knit collective known as the Hillbilly Agenda have established an ongoing legacy of real-world meetups over the last two years. Knox reached out to let us know the squad now has an official Crew boat, exclusively available for members to take out for a ride. Bearing resemblance to a real life Shitzu Tropic, this Sea Ray SRV220 featuring a V-cabin and a mean inboard V6 is docked in Lake Norris, TN and has been prepped by fellow Crew member and boat mechanic Stokes1214.
To showcase the fun group outings on this mighty vessel, Hillbilly Agenda has created an official Boat Page on their website and even put together an elaborate Boat Operating Manual to ensure that she's handled responsibly by guests.
OFF ROAD ALL-STARS ANNUAL UPDATE
It's been a while since we've checked in with the Off-Road All-Stars, but in that time they've ramped up their squad with a number of new members and taken on a fresh Leader in Stevedogg51, who has long been their head coordinator for all ROAR Racing events and recruitment. The All-Stars now have a number of great events planned and are working hard to involve other notable Racing Crews, such as Cloud9 Racing and Van Society, to participate in everything from custom rallies with "a little off-road twist," to new circuits that mirror real life championships. As always, event streams are broadcast in cinematic view with full commentary, so nothing is missed. Here are a couple of standouts from ROAR's revamping:
"Modern day motor racing is about speed, precision and foremost safety (Yawn). In the “Stirling Cup” we take a nostalgic trip back in time, before the clipboard and crash helmet were invented. A time where a leather flight cap and some goggles were enough to protect you from the hard tarmac and inevitable fireball should you flip your vehicle into a crowd of tweed dressed spectators, smoking pipes and checking their pocket watches." - Stevedogg51
A favorite amongst members and participating Crews alike has been the ROAR Stirling Cup Rally,which is raced exclusively in the Stirling GT. With a Le Mans-style standing start, this circuit requires players to line up vehicles in qualifying time order and run to them on cue. The fastest qualifiers have the least distance to run, as shown in the video above. Described as a "clean" and nostalgic endurance racing event that introduces new tactics to GTA Online racing, this circuit also allows slipstreaming so that players can work together on straightaways to gain faster lap times and catch up to the leaders.
ROAR is also pleased to announce the second season of the ROAR Rally Championship. With twelve all new stages and vehicles, this action-packed circuit retains an authentic Rally Championship feel and is open to all Crews and all drivers. This season will include the Sultan RS and Warrener and drivers will once again be able to choose their favorite cars from the Sports class. Stages will be time-based with a standard points system, calling for competitors to establish their fastest lap time in the course and then submit a picture of their time to Crew leaders over a two week period.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram, where we always feature great fan creations on the regular. And as always, if you've got some fantastic fan art or Snapmatics to share, be sure to drop your work in the comments below for the Social Club community to appreciate.
A member of the Iranian Rockstar Fans Facebook group, Ehsan Vaezi, has masterfully created this detailed pixel art interpretation of Red Dead Redemption. From the signature Western frontier sunsets to the individually posed pixilated characters, these clips give John Marston's America a comparatively new school and yet still old school effect.
Freshening up the usual formula he follows, Grobi’s latest GTA Online commission features a special guest appearance in the form of Mr. Philips himself. As usual, Trevor seems to be quite a hit with the ladies.
"Beta Cats are a wonderful, creative group who I've been following for quite some time now. If you're a fan of cosplay and Achievement Hunter they're right up your alley." For those looking to terrify their enemies, take a page from mistywren’s ode to nothingofeden’s GTA Online character Pyro. The Pyro Chronicles 1 video from Beta Cats serving as inspiration, mistywren artfully captures the avatar's Orange Face Paint, Black lips and flames reflected in Possessed Contacts.
Kudos to SC member FroudeyBrand, who sent in this awesome recreation of his character’s Black Bloody Hockey Mask via Mouthoff. Froudey sanded down and painted an average Halloween mask to make it look as close as possible to his in-game character’s version that he’s been using since late 2013.
Adding to her caricature repertoire, GalooGameLady hits us with her first GTA Online-inspired commission of Grogpole’s dynamic duo, Kaine and Hudson. These sharp-dressed men are all business in their finely tailored suits and cocked Pistol and Assault Rifle.
Joining the GTA Online commission club, GK-7 adds RayTheMax’s GTA Online avatar to the mix. Toting a Shotgun, blood-splattered clothing and an Owl Mask that's seen better days, this character is due for a bit of R&R.
Check out part deux of Guy Peterson’s fictional map art spree as he illustrates the whole of Los Santos in Google Map style. Don't forget to click through to the full size version of this incredibly detailed piece.
Though this retro style Pißwasser poster ad looks like it has endured a bit of wear and tear over the years, it is still quite the impressive piece by Argentinian graphic artist Francis As AKA TOUGHPAPER22.
Have you seen or created an exceptional bit of fan art or great Snapmatic photo that you'd like to share?
