Dan Conway goes all in for his ender section in GT's "Seriously Fun". Dan took some diggers while filming this section, but all those big rails, kinkers, hubbas, and ledge/rails stand no match for this savage.
Rob Wise made a brief hiatus from BMX pro late last year, but his section from GT's "Seriously Fun" DVD shows that Rob hasn't slowed down one bit. Going backwards up a wall rail is complete absurdity, and that over-grind on the wire!? Rob is an savage animal on the Bike and we were stoked to have him along on the GT Taiwan trip earlier this year. Rob only films bangers!
Nobody rides quite like Albert Mercado. Al has a casual swag in his riding that shines through even when he's doing odd-ball NBD maneuvers. Creativity, spot use, and one hell of an invert make every Albert Mercado section a good one, but this one is especially good. Filmed in California, Connecticut, and Taiwan.
Jeff Ludwig is raw as hell and his section in GT's "Seriously Fun" is a refreshing display of rough as grinds on metal pegs, 60/40 & 40/60 setups, and classic East Coast style street obstacle shralping. It's hard to put it into words but Jeff's riding has a feel to it, and you can't say that about just anyone.
GT - "SERIOUSLY FUN" - MIX SECTION. From the East Coast to the West, GT supports an impressive AM / flow squad including Chase Krolicki, Ty Calis, Jordy Grandinetti, Jay Crowley, Leandro Moreira, & many more. Between Leandro shredding trails and Ty stepping up to some ridiculous roof setups, this mix section does not skimp! And I can't help but shout out to that mobile fire escape clip from Chelsea, so damn good! Stay tuned all week for the rest of the sections from GT's "Seriously Fun"
Jason Phelan brings the heat in his section from GT's "Seriously Fun" DVD. From large drops to jiby street maneuvers, JP has the tech skills as well as an eye for large scale setups, making this section a well-rounded enjoyable watch.
GT BMX - SERIOUSLY FUN. It's here!!! GT is currently premiering their new 20-minute DVD "Seriously Fun" right here on the site for 72 hours! The video is amazing, from Brian Kachinsky's BANGER opening section, to the sleeper Rob Wise section, grind technician Jeff with Glasses' part, Albert Mercado's light-hearted and uber-creative section, or the savage Dan Conway's HEATER of an ender. There are also appearances from the rest of the team like a short but sweet section from Jason Phelan, and a mix from the AM and flow crew.
On June 21, 2017, GT Bicycles, a premium brand of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.A), will roll out its very first feature video, Seriously Fun. In early 2015, GT took to the streets of Los Angeles and Kansas City to uncover a plethora of untapped spots across these two vastly different cities. With Ben Ward, GT BMX product and team manager at the helm, the brand released two successful shorter web videos – GT in LA and Bleeding Kansas – to kick off the beginning of a new era for GT BMX.
"GT in LA and Bleeding Kansas were incredible for the brand and showed the industry what we could
The squad has been going in for the last year from coast to coast in the US, to Brazil, France, Germany, the UK, Taiwan & more, so this is sure to be amazing. GT selected BMX industry videographer and editor Andrew Brady to bring Seriously Fun to life. It was Brady’s overall passion and excitement for the project which made him the main man for the job.
