Lots of people have been asking for a video like this and I finally got the chance to make it happen, because TallOrder have sent me my very own BMX bike to build up and ride at Corby Skatepark, Adrenaline Alley.
Everyone was so hyped after the last BMX & MTB compound video with Kieran Reilly, who is a pro BMX and olympic athlete. Kieran threw down some insane tricks in the last video whilst I continued my quest to land a 1080 on a mountain bike.
You have all been suggesting and commenting for a while that me and Brakeless Ben swap bikes and he rides my MTB dirt jump bike whilst I try out the BMX again at my slopestyle compound.
I went for a Corby skatepark session with Harry Main, where we filmed some Rocker BMX riding for his channel and were planning on doing an MTB vs BMX session for my channel. But I ended up jumping on his BMX bike and really enjoying learning new things on it, which was super fun! But had to get back on the MTB in the end and do some proper mountain bike riding. I'm off to New Zealand right now so call me out some ideas in the comments!
Cheers Harry Main!
