There are different levels of commitment when it comes to BMX, and Alessandro Donaggio went all in! After moving from Italy to Barcelona, Spain in search of more opportunities to ride with other riders and some of the worlds spots, it’s safe to say the decision has been a good one. Hit play to watch Alessandro go to work on spots all over his new home. No shortage of gold in this BMX video.
“I’m Alessandro Donaggio, a BMX street rider from a small island of Venice, Italy. I started BMX when I was 16 after I worked hard and finally I had the possibility of buying my first bike. I was the only rider in my town and most of the time I was riding alone, because there was no one else to share my passion with. I soon realized that it wasn’t the right place for me.
I left for Barcelona at 19 and now I have been living here for a year and a half. Riding here is made of early mornings and late nights in between my shifts at work. I realized how much BMX was helping me when things were going wrong, and falling apart; but what’s more important for me is to share my feelings to the people on the streets, and express myself through BMX, as if it was an artform.” – Alessandro Donaggio
