many riders now are “on the grind” perform flatland shows to earn a living. Stylecat Williams Perez is one of those dudes, check out his latest edit for his sponsor: New Athletic.
Back to it after a couple of days off, let’s get Sunday’s posts started with this rad edit from the underrated Joel Schallhorn! Here’s what Joel had to say about this “Hypnotic” edit:
“While I was home in Colorado I felt like I was lazy as a rider, rarely rode and filmed, but I focused on progressing myself in other ways which can be seen here. I felt lazy but when I was reviewing the footage I collected from January to March of 2018 I guess I did more than I thought and I’m happy with the result!”
Yuki Itoh just dropped some exciting product news, he just got a well deserved “N Code” signature bar with Far East Cycles. Nice to see something a little different than the usual 2 piece bar design. Specs can be seen below.
Johann Chan made the trip down to Hastings recently to grab a session with Amos Burke. Here’s what Johann had to say about this edit:
“Amos Burke manages to shred a mix of Flat, bowls, ledges and rails all on one bike.
A couple of weeks ago, we drove down to Hastings, with the plan of riding flat & the Source park.
After a quick ground session, we headed down to the Source. By the time we reached the sea front, I felt like I’d teleported straight into an old Backyard video.
The inner BMX nerd got the better of me, and before you know it, the phone was out, and a clip for Instagram ended up being two…”
Flat Rhythm is an invitational flatland event organised by Scott O’Brien sponsored by Red Bull that will merge with a Second Line Parade in New Orleans on May 19th. Six riders are invited, so far Terry Adams, Terry Adams, Matthias Dandois and Tyler Gilliard, each announcing a day at a time.
We live in an era where social media makes seeing daily BMX videos easy. So we set out to do something that wasn’t just a flash in the pan Instagram clip or quick YouTube video. Something that all the riders really took their time to film.
The goal was to present something that had a wide variety of styles and personalities from riders who don’t normally release full parts often, if at all. We attempted to create a certain vibe from start to finish. Something different than what you are used to seeing.
Forget what you heard…
A film by Steven Lapsley. Featuring full sections by Ahmed Johnson, Gurvan Le Bloc’h, Hirokazu Miura, Jérémy Brosset, Joris Bretagnolles, Mateus Beckmann, Naoto Tamaru, Rodolphe Clavelier and Yorihisa Shiota.
In this day an age it is really refreshing to be surprised with a brand new video with a heavy stack of riders to boot. This was the case when Steven Lapsley dropped the news “Forget What You heard” dropping tomorrow. Like whoa, where did that come from?? I wanted to catch up with Steven, who kindly sent me a pre release copy to talk about the project and get his thoughts on picking the riders, making the video, getting fresh Miura footage and much more. Without further a due, let’s get right into this!
