This past September, the Heresy crew chose to embark on a week tour in the south of sunny France where they also filmed their last team video “GROUP ASPHALTANIC RITES”, and took part in jams with the locals in Bordeaux, Toulouse and Montpellier. Good vibes throughout, plus head over to the DIG BMX website for the story and photos.
This morning I woke up in Monument, Colorado to a special treat from the Heresy BMX family. It is almost goes without saying that many of you will not even read this description before hitting play on the video, that’s the hold and respect the Heresy crew have on the flatland community.
The flatland team seems to be a thing of the past for the most part so it’s great that Alexis is able to continuing growing the team adding Pete Olsen to the team who totally fits the HSY aesthetic, and this summer Pete joined Michaël Husser, George Manos, Sebastian Grubinger, Matthieu Bonnecuelle, and head honcho Alexis Desolneux for a summer tour around various spots in Southern France. Combine that with that amazing work of Tom over at Sevisial who captures the chemistry and aesthetic of the brand and in turn whets the appetite somewhat.
From the opening triple backwards two footed backyard walk around by Pete Olsen you just wait in excitement like a little kid as to what is next to follow. The subtle change to colour was almost a nice touch in my mind, as with all Must Watch edits and particularly edits like this I like to highlight what I loved about it.
1:00 & 3:34: Sebastian Grubinger’s lines throughout are absolutely amazing. He and Pete are really pushing the backwards style in this edit and generally and it’s so good now they are repine’ the same brand. Like I said before, the fit makes sense.
4:09: Loved Michael Husser’s whiplash to two footed frontyard round the bars line is so good, and look at the dust on the ground. Even more amazing, loved the style.
5:09: Matthieu Bonnecuelle has so many nice intricate moves throughout the edit, especially loved this g-turning switch foot whiplash jump to pedal manual 180 out to jump off pedals switch foot fakie whiplash and out. The variety between each team members styles are really refreshing throughout.
5:26: One of my favourite lines of the edit, one that myself and James McGraw called out when we first watched the edit this morning, Sebastain’s gliding gerator g turned to backwards two footed backyard half backwards decade off the pedal. Subtle, but such a treat!
The shove pedal 5 line that George Manos drops at the 7:06 is absolute poetry in motion.
And the ender, x-up ride in to brakeless straddle roni from Pete Olsen is so point. Another masterpiece from Heresy, who deserve all the plaudits they will get from this edit I am sure. This is flatland and that is why we love it. Big up everyone involved in this production.
Aude Cassagne, Alexandre Jumelin, Maxime Luchetti, Michael Husser, Anais de Azevedo, Rouchdi Aroua, Pierre-Alexandre Postel and Maxime Cassagne spend 3 days in Bordeaux and this doesn’t disappoint. For me, what stood out: Maxime’s No foot one hand teakettle Turbine around the 00:32, great footage of Aude Cassagne 00:14, 00:43 and especially the messiah line 2:46! Also, look out for two great lines from AJ at
1:49 and the final line at 3:22. Good vibes from Bordeaux!
During the beginning of September 2016 Sebastian Grubinger spent some days in Onet le Château, Matthieu Bonnecuelle’s hometown, and at Michaël Husser’s new home, Bordeaux.
These are some adventures of 3/5 of the HY crew during this time, chilled vibes with amazing tricks. As with anything Heresy put out, this well worth a watch!
Well, as it turns out we didn’t have to wait long for the Heresy edit! I just got back from my morning riding session and here it is! Absolutely incredible riding and beautifully put together edit from George Manos, Sebastian Grubinger, Michael Husser, and Alexis Desolneux (the pivot switch at 3:18!), you already know to watch this right!
A few people have asked wheres the footage from DUG Round 1? Well, check out this great edit that features not only contest footage, but practise footage and antics as well. Great riding from Simon O’Brien, Michael Husser, Paul Chaberlain, Yasushi Kaiiwaia, and many others! Looked like a fun weekend in Sydney!
