Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is excited to announce Vans The Circle – a 100% digital street video competition – is back for a third year. First introduced on a European level in 2020, the online competition gave BMX shops across Europe the chance to film a team edit, celebrating their riders and the local communities. Four international guests have now joined the European crew and will all compete to win a share of the €20,000 prize pot.
The concept remains the same. Each invited shop receives a budget to help cover the costs of filming and editing their team video. Then they have a few months to pull together an edit worthy of the top prizes.
They will be judged on criteria such as creativity, style and inclusivity by a brand-new panel of BMX legends, including Kevin Peraza, Greg Illingworth, Linda Grabner, Calvin Kosovich and Marcus Wilke.
Getting a pedal to the shin or hitting your knee on the stem is something we have all experienced. It hurts and it sucks. At these moments you will tell yourself you should have worn some protection gear. The time is now to give in on your stubborness. Give yourself a moment to study the TSG Bike protection line and we're positive you will find the right pads to avoid these painful moments. From slim pads that fit underneath your skinniest pants to more protection on the slightly bulkier knee and shin pads that simply provide better protection on bigger slams or hits on the stem. The choice is gigantic and whatever you pick, it'll be money well spent.
