Right before the Red Bull Featured pilot started, we caught up with Bas Keep about the competition concept he had been thinking about to change things up from what is currently out there. Welcome to Red Bull Featured, a BMX Freestyle (Park) event with different Rounds leading towards an overall winner at the end of the day where the limits are pushed. The idea is to bring new tricks and smiles on everyone’s faces, especially those of the riders. We put the Dictaphone on at The Mill at the DYFI park in Wales and here’s what we ended up with to explain the competition some more.
FATBMX: To start this off, why here? How did you find this place? Bas Keep: Haha, the idea is to test the event, and we have a good relationship with The Atherton’s, so we were able to test the event in their barn instead of testing it in front of a large crowd.
FATBMX: It’s an amazing place. Bas Keep: I love this place. They own the mountain. Dan Atherton is the hardest working man in the world. He can’t stop building. They’re awesome people to be around with. It’s a good vibe this week with the Red Bull MTB DH summit taking place at the same time.
FATBMX: So we understand this Red Bull Featured ramp set-up will be packed up after the pilot, correct?

“The biggest question is, how do you keep going after falling so hard? I think it's that line that you have to cross. When you realize, you want this despite those injuries, because you know they’re going to happen. I’ve had them before, and I’ve only come back stronger and more addicted to it. That’s what kept me riding for the past 20 years, it’s crazy!” said Peraza about his driving force on the new episode of UNLEASHED.
Fans can now tune in to Episode 31 of UNLEASHED featuring decorated BMX professional Peraza. Released today, the new podcast is streaming on all major platforms, including Spotify, iTunes, and YouTube.
