Fakt BMX have added Romik Bykov to the squad. To celebrate, Romik went to work on spots galore around Moscow to stack a ton of solid clips for this welcome video! Romik put all of the spots he came across to proper use with plenty of grinds, whips, barspins and more!
“The official and long-awaited Welcome video of Romik Bykov in the FAKT BMX is 99% shot on Moscow spots during the summer season. During the filming, Romik faced a lot of troubles: problems with the law, constantly knocked out fingers (because of which there are not so many barspins in the video), broken parts, many kilometers traveled from spot to spot without using the subway!
The video turned out to be quick and not prolonged, 1/3 of the clips decided to filter, so that it was short and strong. So check out this OG guy from the south of Moscow! Make the sound louder and enjoy!” – Fakt BMX
