JJ Palmere is a professional BMX rider, entrepreneur, and recent Arizona transplant. He's super chill and is growing to be a dear friend of mine. Been spending a lot of time together working on videos for PlantsBasically and riding BMX together on Sundays. In this episode we talk about his move to AZ from San Diego, a brief history of his career in BMX, his blooming supplement business, and much more.
Today's DIG Locals comes from the streets of Paris, France and Marwan Ayari sure knows some sick spots there. Nothing too crazy in this but a hell of a good watch full of vert walls ripping and spots that will make you want to book a flight.
Here's the highlights from the always wild first stop of the Toyota Triple Challenge in Anaheim, California. Finals kicks off later today (2:30pm PST, to be exact) if you're trying to watch it in person.
I am a filmmaker with a passion for BMXing and seeing the World. Since 2015 I wanted to create my own film capturing BMX in new and exciting places. However, work tended to get in the way so for 2 years the film was just a pipe dream.
Un des plus gros saut de ma vie !!! Il pleut depuis presque 2 mois en Bretagne. Le moment idéal pour filmer des grosse figures dans des parcs couvert ... hésite pas a la partager a tes potes si tu la aimer!
The new UCI BMX SX World Cup season is about to kick off in Australia. With races on the program in Shepparton and Bathurst the first two weekends of February, it's going to be interesting to see who are on top. The Olympics are happening this summer and with 24 spots available in both Men and Women, it is key to get as many points in before the Olympic qualification period ends on 1 June 2020. All UCI BMX SX World Cups and the 2020 UCI BMX race World Championships in Houston will happen before 1 June making the first 5 months a hectic period for any racer chasing the Olympic dream.
The first two highest ranked nations will get to send 3 athletes to Tokyo. Nations ranked on spot 3-5 will get to send 2 racers and countries in top 6-11 will get to send 1. It gets complicated for the last spots to be filled in but the time has come that all points gained in the upcoming qualifying races are important.
This is a bit of an experiment that depends on my phone data, and it will be a bit lowfi as I move around and film the event for real, but here are (hopefully) the Qualifiers at the Toyota Triple Challenge in Anaheim 2. If this works, expect to see finals here on Saturday.
