In this edition of FLAT SYSTEM Dub catches up with his friends Jean François Boulianne and Bergeron who recently came back from a 5 month tour around the USA during the pandemic. They tell us about how it was to travel by road during these times, and they discuss the US scene, the lack of a new generation coming through, and many other things including Van life and the best riding and camping spots they encountered on their tour. Great to see Dub putting these out regularly!
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.
In this episode of Flat System, Dub catches up with IGI team mate, Benjamin Hudson from Chile to discuss how Benjamin got into riding, travelling, the Covid situation in Chile, the Chile flatland scene, leaving Red Bull, and a lot more.
