"In the Spring of 1998, Jeff Harrington, on behalf of Profile, asked if I'd ride for their brand. 20 years later, I couldn't see myself riding any other drive train. Celebrating both 20 years of riding for the brand (17 of those working closely here in the Profile factory) and the daily motivation I still feel upon turning 41, here's a collection of clips I've put together building up to that date. Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoy." - Matt Coplon "Thanks to Profile Racing for 20 years of support. To Chad Degroot and Deco. To John Povah and Etnies. To Brian Schaefer and the Skatepark of Tampa. To Adi Gilbert and Folklore. To Steve Crandall and FBM. Thanks to Steve Caro, Ricky Moseley, Mike Hinkens, Eric "Easy" Fabrisiak, and Alan Shirley for motivation and assistance with filming. Extra thanks to Ariel Gunn, Adi Gilbert, Will and DIG BMX, Beth and Alan Shirley and especially Steve Caro for all their help and support." - Matt Coplon
After pulling off one of the most raw and wildest jams ever last year, Trey Jones re-booted and the follow-up 2018 Swampfest became a reality once more. If you weren’t fortunate enough to attend one of the Ghetto Street comps in the early 2000’s, the Swampfest is basically this decade’s version, with some Florida flavor. Here’s a 14-minute glimpse into the non-stop antics that went down all weekend long. Shout-out to Ryan Herbach, Dave McDermott, Cody Diggs and the whole crew for helping put on an awesome event, and especially Trey for all his hard work and effort to give everyone a weekend they won’t forget.

A month back while The Street Series was doing its thing worldwide, Animal's Mike Hoder and Chase Dehart hopped over the Atlantic for a trip to Old Blighty to sample some grimy brick gems. Animal UK's No Donuts OG Fat Head also made it down to London from t'north to supply some chit-chat and whoppers, along with local newbie Malick Cham. Despite some classic UK summer weather the guys held it down and came out with some classy street nugs. Enjoy!
Garrett is one of those guys who we at DIG have long considered to be a true BMX legend and someone whose inspiration continues to operate at a different level than what is perceived as the norm. In fact, riders like Garrett and his ilk are the motivational backbone of our near 25 year existence as a BMX media outlet. This film is simply our way of showing respect for that inspiration and continued motivation.
DIG BMX - In the Cut: Territores # 1 - China. Back in October of 2016 we started a new DIG travel project. For the first one we teamed up with official partner brands WETHEPEOPLE BMX and Eclat BMX and selected two riders from each brand to accompany us to a city none of us had ever been to or even knew about. Ningbo is about 2.5 hours south of Shanghai in China and had more than enough good spots and interesting locals to make for an epic trip.

"Jerome Gauthier is one of the most talented BMXers that we have seen in France over the past 15 years. Nowadays he may be without sponsors but, he is still killing it on a daily basis, especially in his DIY built mini barn ramp setup. In this new edit by Antoine Sabourin you can watch him ride with intensity and smoothness on some incredibly rough transitions." - SOUL BMX
