Unsung BMX DVD. Unsung.adg Not celebrated; unknown. This was the first official BMX DVD I released at the end of 2007. Unsung sold over 1000 copies worldwide and was stocked in all core bike shops. 26 stockists to be precise as well as successful sales on ebay.
In 2019, I began the overdue journey to understand my shadow. Although this is still a work in progress, looking back I have come along way since I released my previous edit, the escapist. The fact that I am finding some peace means my head is in a better place, where better things happen.
You should never run away from your problems, pedalling is much faster! 2018 was at times a difficult one mentally and although I should be well rehearsed in these situations by now, truth be told I struggled. However my rad family and bike helped me escape the dramas. This song was my soundtrack to the year and the lyrics capture where I am at perfectly.
Who would have thought 15 years ago whilst in a coma from a bmx crash that I would have ticked so many things off my wish list! I have been sponsored by some rad companies, travelled the world, been featured in books and magazines and meet some amazing people along the way. 2017 was a good year with a return trip to Australia and competing in the iBMXFF world championships. It's never been about results but the situations, making memories and ticking things off that wish list.
Searching for a track and picking the right one for an edit is always something I think long about. When I heard this song by Horrorshow I knew that I found the one. The lyrics are on point and that 2nd verse says it all. Anyways, I recently returned to Australia with my family and had the best time imaginable. Here is some clips of what I got up to. It was rad to catch up with some of my mates and there is a few throwback clips that fitted in perfectly with the lyrical narrative from when I lived there in 2010.
2016 was my 13th year back riding after suffering a brain injury from a serious bike crash, It was also 20 years from when I began riding BMX. I was keen to film what I hoped would be one of best video projects, at 33 years young! However in the all too familiar Nik Ford time bomb scenario, I had another nasty crash on my bike and needed to have surgery to reconstruct my shoulder. This delayed the start of filming and meant I had a lot to fit in to the later half of the year. Now the edit is complete I am stoked with all the clips, my favourites include the no handed xup grind, suicide double barspin rocket icepick, feeble grind to xup pegs to barspin out and the rodeo grind.
