Highlights from a two week trip around South Africa with my BMX and my gorgeous girlfriend, Stina Ilves. We started in Joburg, flew to Port Elizabeth, spent a few days in Port Alfred. Then drove the garden route to Cape Town.
One of my subscribers gave me the idea to do a bike check of my 2012 and 2016 Olympic bikes and see what was different, so here it is! I thought it was interesting seeing what the differences were. Which do you like better?
Earlier this year I brainstormed with the guys over at Odyssey about video project ideas for 2017. We agreed on doing a concept-based video to switch things up from the traditional web edit style. Mike Mastroni was brought into the picture as our filmer and to help us make a decision on what the most interesting concept would be. Ultimately, we chose to do a video composed entirely of riding spots we could find in Long Beach alleyways. Mastroni and I live smack dab in the middle of a plethora of alley spots, so we got to work quick and filmed for about 2 weeks.
What would you do for a private backyard session with professional BMX riders Larry Edgar and Daniel Sandoval? Join the tour and take a ride at X-Games Gold Medalist Stephen Murray's Backyard "Stay Strong Compound" in bright and sunny Riverside, California.
It's a small world but somehow managed to bump into Foo, 16,000 miles from the heart of Devon, England. We've been out here, working, riding and all the other stuff for a while now and haven't filmed bmx in a long time. We'd been wanting to film for a while but with busy schedules and not knowing all the good street spots, figured it would be a good idea to get back into filming by getting it started at this sick park in Keilor, Melbourne.
Back in October, I broke my frame that I been riding on for about 3 years and really didn't have the money. I made a post on Instagram about how it sucked , that I couldn't ride and Eastern Bikes reached out to me about riding one of there frames . Of course I was down and felt like it was a honor that I was actually getting hooked up by a company I been wanting to ride for since the day I started riding ten years ago. Since then they have helped me with a few parts and also a vintage eastern seat that replaced a seat I been riding for about 7 years which is crazy because it actually works perfect. Anyways I wanted to shoot a video for them and through the weather and ugly days I was able to produce this to thank them for the added motivation and thank them for just being there when I needed someone the most
