Francois Debroux, Lifelong BMX rider originally from Brussels, Belgium and now living in Vancouver, BC started the Hang 5 Podcast a year ago and had this to say:
“The original concept was to interview French and Belgian (because of my background) older riders/shop owners/promoters/media and industry heads, etc.
The podcast is in French and I cover all aspects of BMX: Racing, ramp riding, street, park and of course flatland.
While it all started with trying to preserve the history through interviews and stories from the pioneers in the french speaking countries, I don’t want to limit myself to just the old school or french riders. All eras of BMX are great.
I just released episode 16th with Raphael Chiquet.
Future plans include starting to interview members of the wider European scene in English this time.
Heresy’s very own, George Manos continues to shine on his own creative path. Creative Pegless flatland at it’s best, it’s pretty dark footage as would expect from Mr Manos. But it’s also kind of fun trying to watch what the hell he is doing, little bit of mystery dare I say it. Thank you George for sharing!
If you thought Rodney Williams dropping a ten minute combo was a big deal, think again! After a year of trying, Rodney just threw down what is arguably the longest combo ever done that I am aware of in the history of BMX flatland. This close tow hours long, holy shit!! Amazing stamina, concentration and mindset to get this done. More power to Rodney Williams!!
