Last summer Anatole Rahain & Gabriel Gallon organise a Flatland road trip in France with Fabien Stephan, Romain Dodelier, Kevin Jacob, Gurvan Lebloc’h and many other french riders. Lot of good riding and nice vibes in this one, enjoy!
Ever wondered about who is behind Far East Cycles…..
“Far East Cycles is a Chinese made and designed BMX Flatland Brand, the owner and head manager at the FEC factory is WeiChangShao. ChangShao shows us the process of building a frame, why and how he does what he does. His brand was built over time hand in hand with Jean William Prévost and will now be distributed at select companies throughout the world. Fareast now sponsors riders from 4 countries and is moving forwards with the development of innovative and cost effective products for the benefit of flatlanders and riders around the planet.
To support FEC, you can go and like the facebook page ”Far East Cycles” and follow them on instagram.”
Etienne Taraud just dropped this nice 9:16 long edit from the 6th edition of the Astrolabe contest featuring the likes of Matthias Dandois, Quentin Pelorson, Alex Jumelin, Kevin Meyer, Kevin Jacob, Dez Maarsen, Joris Bretagnolles, Jeremy Brosset, Fabien Stephan, Gurvan Le Bloc’h and many more. Enjoy!
We started the last month of the year with this sick xft pedal turbine mega spin opposite foot decade clip out of Jason Plourde.
On December 2nd, Alberto Moya published this really nice edit from the jam the day after the Com’in Lyon contest a few weeks back featuring Alexis Desolneux, Charles Paty, Fabien Stephan, Alberto Moya, Kevin Jacob, Mates Tucek and Matthieu Bonnecuelle. Definitely worth a watch!
Joel Schallhorn has been progressing a ton since his return from China back to his home in Denver, Colorado. Joel definitely stands out to me as he rides so differently than almost anyone I can think of, in this edit you will see lots of new opposite bar flips, gadget whips variations, and a fun new no footed steam holding the stem (3:57 + backwards variation) that was inspired by Martti Kuoppa at a Tintadome session at BITR last month. Really enjoyed this edit, keep on shredding Joel!
October was all about Flatark, all eyes on Kobe, Japan! But besides that what else happened in the month of October? Take a lookback…
On October 4th, Canadian Powerhouse Jason Plourde dropped a powerful back wheel line, as he warms up for Flatark in a few weeks, hit play!
A while ago we dropped the news Fabien Stephan was riding for Far East Cycles along with Dub and Benjamin Hudson. Now check his Welcome to edit, signature SF styles and amazing production in this one! Hell yes!
What a nice video to wake up to on October 7th! Heresy just released this amazing trick, no handed turbine whiplash anyone? Matthieu Bonnecuelle just unlocked a new door, the possibilities are endless!
The clocks go forward in April, and the riding level and contest season takes on more momentum as we all get psyched for the summer. What happened in April? Here are some of the highlights as I dig back in the crates at some of the key moments…
Dane Beardsley’s amazing section from Samethingdaily3 is now online mixing up flatland, trails, ditches, concrete parks, street, Dane can do it all! Flatland wise, look out for the No handed backwards death truck line at 2:20, xft shove it mccircle line at 3:47 and a whole lot more! A Good Friday treat for you from Dane Beardsley, pure BMX! A great way to start the month of April!
Alberto Moya just dropped this really nice edit from the jam the day after the Com’in Lyon contest a few weeks back featuring Alexis Desolneux, Charles Paty, Fabien Stephan, Alberto Moya, Kevin Jacob, Mates Tucek and Matthieu Bonnecuelle. Definitely worth a watch!
The first contest footage I have seen from Astrolabe5 this past weekend, put together by Lie SeongHoon! Featuring great riding from the likes of Kevin Nukulski, Jean William Prevost, Fabien Stephan, Quentin Pelorson, Dan Hennig, Thomas Noyer and many more! Thanks to Jeff Desroche sending this one in!
