One of the most complete athletes in Brazil Caio Rabisco, in this video in partnership with Drop BMX, shows all his base and skills in one of the most technical and difficult park obstacles that exists. Recently added to CTBMX in São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo-BR this extension placed on the volcano brings a multitude of maneuvering options.
Action Sports returned to Sun City as South Africa’s top BMX and Skate athletes battled it out at the 2021 ULT.X African Championships powered by Suzuki. The world-class park setup, with both park and street style obstacles, made for an exciting weekend of closely fought contests. In the BMX Finals it was Murray Loubser who came out on top claiming victory. Although riding with an injured knee Loubser chose to ride the full course with flow and concentrate on the tricks he knew he’d land, the approach paid off scoring 78.51. Even with the injury his run was stacked with tricks like the Switch 360 Lookback, Barspin to Wallride, Double Truckdriver on the park side of the course, and on the street side of the course a Switch Snaggletooth down the handrail, Crank on Grind to Barspin, and Tooth Hard 180.
Malcolm Peters, knowing Loubser had the street style tricks on lock, concentrated on throwing his biggest trick in the park section of the course. Flip and Flair variations where the order of the day and his Backflip Turndown, Backflip Tailwhip and Flair Table slotted him into 2nd with a score of 73.08.
An always consistent and technical Francois Bodenstein rounded out the podium in 3rd place with a score of 71.41. Sticking to his gameplan his run included a 720, 360 Tailwhip, Backflip, Alleyoop 540, and 270 Tailwhip to name a few.
Always a podium contender, Vincent Leygonie couldn’t put it together in the final and had to settle
To celebrate it being 10 years since The Colony DVD was released we're dropping a section from the video each week. Next up is Liam Zingbergs & Brock Olive, both these guys were really coming up at the time of this video producing some quality and progressive clips. Both Liam & Brock continue to murder it on a bike to this very day.
"We started filming this project not long after Santos received his new bike, and at that time we were still roommates so the motivation to go out and film was always there. After a few weeks of filming in Montpellier he break his foot on a handrail (I had pictures from that moment on a disposable Kodak but the photo laboratory lost my film...)
August 2021 marked my 20th year of riding BMX. Through the years I’ve experienced a lot, met a lot of cool people and definitely struggled with injuries. I still make time to go out and ride after all these years.
After Maca built up a fresh Park Ranger setup, we headed out for some sessions and got to filming. Working with Maca has been a treat, as you can see from the video. She has a fluid style, power and strong focus. We decided to get these clips out sooner rather than later so we could start something fresh with her post Olympics. Enjoy! - Zach Krejmas
Name: Bob Lipsett Jr Hometown: Hamilton NJ, Mercer county, USA Started riding BMX in: 1980 Number of bikes in the collection: 8 bikes
Do you remember the moment that you decided to start collecting BMX memorabilia? Bob Lipsett Jr.: Exactly when! I bumped into my buddy 2 years ago that I used to ride with back in 1980. We were talking about his business and what I do and he made mention that he just bought a new SE racing PK Ripper. I instantly thought of my 1981 Super goose that I lost in my parents divorce when I was 12 so from that day until now I've been back involved with late seventies an early '80s BMX racers,
The Drug Aware Groundswell Festival at Scarborough Beach in Western Australia has grown steadily into a fantastic event over the past few years. A vital inclusion last year was the BMX bowl battle competition delivered last year by Freestyle Now, the world's longest running action sports enterprise based right here in Western Australia. “With Australia’s Logan Martin’s recent BMX Park Gold Medal win at the Tokyo Olympics, competitions such as this are critical to nurturing our next generation of BMX riders”, said Shaun Jarvis, BMX stunt show rider and owner of Freestyle Now.
The skatepark bowl at Scarborough is the largest in Western Australia and is a world-class venue. For 2021 Zambrero has stepped in as a major sponsor of the BMX competition delivering a fun new twist on the competition with the name now the “Zambrero BMX bowl battle”. It sounds like a great challenge for photographers to get a BMX rider flying out of a “burrito” bowl!
Other supporters of the Zambrero BMX bowl battle include Colony BMX, Division Brand, Cult Crew, Sneaky Wholefoods, Local BMX.
“Competitors can enter pro, open, intermediate or the beginners class. Thanks to Zambrero’s,
