Throwback Thursdays with Simon Marsan

So much creative stuff in this edit from Simon Marsan from Quebec, Canada. Look out for the no hand no foot crack / manual around the 1;14 and 2:23 mark, and the xft crackpacker no handed cyborg style I don’t think I have seen again to this day! Amazing riding, and creative talent. Is there more footage of this guy that we all need to see?

Throwback Thursdays – Lee Musselwhite / Inertia Promo

It’s been a few weeks since we dropped a throwback thursdays. So let’s make this a good one, and how about this amazing Lee Musselwhite Inertia promo edit that came out around 2002. The story directly from Lee is he was working on a collab video with Paul Osicka for Standard around that time which never happened along with a project with London Bikes who Lee previously rode for, and the footage combined came together with the help of Jon Knight.Inertia was born. Take a trip down memory lane and hit play!

Throwback Thursdays with Dane Beardsley

With STD2 video parts being posted regularly with the highly anticipated STD3 due for release in January 2015, what better time to re-up this amazing Dane Beardsley Props Bio?! Style and skills for days, Dane never disappoints, the xft juggle backwards halfpacker line that starts around 00:17 is incredible! Definitely give this one a watch if you missed it the first time or just a refresh!
