The following was filmed over the past four years while Brett was living in Hong Kong. We filmed without strict deadlines or pressure from any sponsors. It was all organic. We were motivated by nothing more than friends, good times and love for the bike... So now, I present to you Shocker Brett! Please enjoy!
In February 2007, I left for China to do shows in an amusement park for 11 months, totally unaware that that experience would change my life forever, I now find myself going to China 2-3 times a year, I speak and read a fluent Chinese Mandarin and run some bmx teams in China!
The tenth installment of our 'Twelve days of Aitken’, which is a retrospective look at Mike Aitken’s BMX career, skips the commentary, and focuses on a compilation of Mikey’s riding from Road Fools 15 (2006) and Road Fools Rock-N-Roll Tour 2 (2007).
We’re 3/4 of the way through our ‘Twelve days of Aitken,’ which is a retrospective look at Mike Aitken’s BMX career as seen through the eyes of some of those who know him best via a selection of his hugely influential video parts, and what better part to kick off Day 9 than with Mikey’s epic “That’s It!” section.
We are pleased to invite you to watch "Eurotrip 2017" video that we managed to film in July 2017. Our goal was to visit Luxembourg, France and especially Paris for BMXDAY and Netherlands where instead of visiting the rainy streets of Amsterdam, we found a very nice skatepark under the bridge in Zaandam, not far from our awsome airbnb place. Hope you will like it :)
STILL UNITED - Team Mix 2. "We've got another online premiere of the epic 'Still United' DVD - this time it's just under four minutes of footage from United bossman Ian Morris, along with Jimmy Rushmore, Dan Boiski and Jack Birtles. There's not many 40+ year old BMX company owners still smashing out massive rails and bomb dropping into street setups, but Ian Morris can't stop himself! Expect mach-10 clips from Nana Rushmore, effortless rail manoeuvres from London's mental spot map guide Dan Boiski and some loose ol' shredding from Jack Birtles down-under. You can't beat a bit of Killing Joke either! You've got to love a good team section, and this second one from STILL UNITED ain't no normal mix! "
With Day 8 in our 'Twelve days of Aitken,’ which is a retrospective look at Mike Aitken’s BMX career as seen through the eyes of some of those who know him best via a selection of his hugely influential video parts, we focus on “FIT Life”, which was released in 2007. Six years after it’s inception, FIT was well-established, and Mikey was at the upper echelon of FIT’s well-assembled dream team of this era.
STILL UNITED 2016 "Our penultimate online premiere of the insanely good 'Still United' just went live and this time it's DVD cover boy Alex Valentino. Alex's level of determination for his section was admiring to see - just one example of this is his first clip when he shreds all the skin off his palms. Well, 48 hours later he was 180 barspinning the 'El Cap' statue with his hands all bandaged up - now that's how you do it. Enjoy Alex Valentino's best from two years of filming, all tied up like a charm via the mind of Peter Adam. And that ender too, don't miss it! "
Nathan Williams - 'Still United' Full Part. Well, here it is folks, the final section from the instant classic that is the 'Still United' DVD and it's none other than ultimate savage, Nathan Williams. Nathan's ability to take horrible slams like a trooper is unbelievable and his attitude and level of focus to getting the clips he wants is gold. If you're a security guard getting in the way of what he wants to do on his bike, he'll make you feel invisible. Enjoy the next 7+ minutes of breathtaking bike riding with one hell of a soundtrack - Nathan Williams is genuinely one of our best to ever do it, both on and off the bike. We salute you!
