Every summer, a spectacular new 'phenomenon' comes out of South America. A group of talented and motivated BMX riders fly to Europe with a few clothes, a little money, and a small dismantled bike in a big bag. Over the last 4 years It has become a tradition as they leave their homeland for the big gathering of FISE Montpellier to compete, and then keep on traveling for at least two months for yet more contests and sessions on the best spots of the continent. This period of intense riding is an occasion to shine, maybe grab some prize money, and most of all enjoy the nomadic BMX lifestyle.
Volume BMX: Boyd Hilder's Califorina "Venture". Our Australian all terrain ripper, Boyd Hilder was out in the states this summer for an extended vacation. Alongside a busy contest season, and a few trips we managed to stack some footage for the hell of it and came out with some pretty rad stuff. From kinked rails to tranny spots, Boyd can and will ride it all!
