Round 1 of the GroundControlUk series is going down this weekend in Manchester. Hit play for an awesome trailer, with Phil Dolan who invented the brakeless nose manual 15 years ago. Just look at the technique, amazing!
This is somewhat of a different “Must Watch” than I normally do as this video for Colony BMX dropped about a month ago on Facebook and I wasn’t able to post it on the site. So it doesn’t have the same impact as a video you haven’t already seen but equally there is so much good stuff within this edit I had to give it the “Must watch” tag. And is also even more amazing when you consider his health problems, so good to see Simon back and firing!
Standouts for me are:
-the quick blender out opposite side I’ve been waiting to see for years at 1:16.
-forward karl jump to backwards halfpacker turbine forwards line at 2:10.
– Fire hydrant decade mega spin to Edgar P time machine line at 2:50.
It is now official, Joris has just been added to the advanced pivotry IGI team, congratulations JB! Glad to see the underrated Joris Bretganolles getting some love from IGI this morning. Peep this nice Welcome edit, the 360 varial to two footed pedal caboose at 1:26 is fire! Enjoy this treat!
Dustyn Alt is one of the nicest guys in the flatland scene for sure, but by the look of this short new edit Dustyn is getting nasty in the riding sense! The pedal backwards spinning straddle time machine out of a backwards spinning lawnmower flip to ice cream is amazing! Definitely worth a watch, and congratulations Dustyn nailing this one!
What great way to start the day. Here is a bank holiday treat from the incredible Hiroya Morizaki, here Hiroya teamed up with Taichi Kunieda to drop these two brand new amazing back wheel lines. So great to see Hiroya is still pushing hard, hitting the rewind again!
Matthieu Bonnecuelle just opened his personal vimeo account and uploaded this “NUAGES”. Loving the no footed candy bar karl line at 00:48! Matthieu is next up for an year end interview, stay tuned and enjoy Matthieu’s riding for now!
Today we have a real treat from James Smith, who has produced a directors cut of the “Run” DVD, he explains all below! Stickied at the top of the site for the day! Thank you James!
“I originally filmed this back 2012 for a the DVD “RUN BMX” it was edited and produced in house by the guys at 430. Years later I found the raw footage on a hard drive and I was keen to do my own version and do a directors cut.
I only ever saw the finished DVD once when it came out, and made sure not to watch it again before editing to avoid influence etc.
It was an amazing experience being in japan 2 weeks filming and witnessing some amazing riding 1st hand.
The edit I have done is light hearted and not to worried about the duplicated angles and tricks.”
