The Follow The Leader crew left New York for a month of BMX Riding in three amazing European cities- Copenhagen, Paris, and London with Austin Mazur, Billy Perry, Anthony Panza, and Bill Malkotsis. These 3 weeks were some of the best times we have had on our bikes. Special thanks to Marcus Diemar, PJ Martini, and Tom Edge!
We head to London, England for the last stop of the FTL Europe Trip. We ride BMX all over the streets of London filming for the web video and came across a lot of amazing street spots. We dodged the cops and rode a BMX race track, rode street quarter pipes, banks, box jumps, hips, rails, curved wallrides and much more.
Episode 5 of the FTL Europe Trip includes 4 days riding BMX all around Paris, hitting amazing street spots, seeing famous landmarks such as the eiffel tower, mobbing through traffic, getting worked filming for the FTL video, getting tattoos, undercover cops, eating crepes and doing more French activities.
I went to California for 2 weeks to film for a Volume Bikes video and do a shop stop trip around California and Nevada. The trip included Broc Raiford, Demarcus Paul, Josh Clemens, Jarren Barboza, Sean Ceiling and Kevin Rust.
Here is a good look at the Simple Session 2018 course. Billy Perry and myself were fortunate enough to have some time on the course to ourselves. Trying to film during practice was almost impossible and deadly with all of the riders going non stop. Huge shout out to Risto and all of the staff for being awesome. New video drops tomorrow at 3pm EST as I travel back to the states. Make sure to checkout the video Billy will be posting as well!
For day 3 of the Europe trip we had 2 absolutely insane adventures! We started the morning out at an Estonian resort where we ripped the Quads through the snow forest. Later that afternoon we rode Fat Bikes through an Abandoned Prison and explored remains from the Soviet Union Era!
Started the day at home and set up my new Panasonic GH5 Camera. I took a flight to the other side of the world to Tallinn, Estonia with Anthony Panza to eventually meet up with Austin Augie for this weeks Simple Session Event and adventures with Visit Estonia. I added in some clips from a session in NYC from a few days earlier.
I picked up Anthony Panza and we headed 5 hours from New York to Camp Woodward in Pennsylvania. Woodward is paradise for BMX riders / action sport enthusiasts and has arguably the best skateparks in the world. We haven’t been able to ride outside for a few weeks so this trip was much needed.
