The annual Astrolabe went down in Northern France this past weekend. Congratulations to back wheel slayer, Joris Bretagnolles who took the win followed by Alex Jumelin who took his flatland school to the event and pretty much cleared house in all the other classes. Third place went to young ripper, Gurvan Le Bloch. Hopefully there will be some run footage soon!
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.

It’s not often we kick off month with a Must Watch edit, but we did that in May of this year, and boy was it a treat!
Japanese flatland legend, Hiroya Morizaki 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!

Yesterday we published the trailer, today it is time for the full team edit, entitled “Enjoy It”. The Quest crew gave a nice description for this one!
“A quest can be defined as pursuing something difficult to attain. That joy you feel when you accomplish a long sought after goal makes the years, months, weeks, and days of hard work all worth it. As riders, this is why we ENJOY IT.
Enjoy It. is a project that was meant to not only showcase the 2016 team but also have fun. Filmed throughout the beginning of 2016 in the USA, Canada and France. Each team rider pushed themselves to put something new on video.
We hope the video gets you motivated to ride every time you watch it. Above all, we hope you ENJOY IT.”
