Here in the UK, we have this saying "Every Dog has his day", well...Jean William Prevost had a whole year and deservedly won a lot of contests, awards (Nora Cup, FM) but his achievements go beyond that with his work for inside the flatland industry with Far East and IGI. This year at Bike Days I caught up with the man to talk about how his year unfolded, we discuss everything from winter training, winning contests, motivation, helping bring on other riders, video parts, Flatland in the Olympics and while lot. Years of hard work to get to this level. You definitely want to grab a cuppa or whatever you do. Get the headphones and enjoy this podcast!
It's been a long time coming, three years in fact since my last edit with Ollie Denny. During that time, I have been battling injuries off and on the bike, it's been hard to get any rhythm. Ironically I just crashed on my roadbike a few hours before we filmed this. Matti Hemmings popped down this past weekend, and quickly turned from "Let's get a few tricks" to "might as well film an edit Effraim?". In one session I did 7 combos I was pretty happy with, the ender though got corrupted. So That will have to wait for the next project.
At the 2017 BMX Cologne contest I caught up with 80's Haro Flatland BMX legend Dave Nourie. We talk about his ordeal of getting to Cologne, his new Haro ride, stories from the 80's Haro tours, his responsibility top keep the old school alive in a new school era at contests, and a whole lot more. I even learnt that Dave did not invent the stubble duck which I thought was the case for years, this is a good one.
