The crew down in South Africa might have had some terrible luck, but it lead to an awesome BMX road trip!
Whenever we see a video pop up from Kevin Schnider, we know we are in for a treat. Here’s a really dialed video that he whipped up from a recent road trip he took with Murray Loubser and a few others to explore street spots, ditches and more in South Africa. Even though things didn’t go to plan, it definitely lead to some excellent riding, spots and good times. Add in some super clean film work and you have a BMX video that’s well worth your time! Hit play and enjoy!
Commonly, a situation where, if anything can go wrong, it will.
A BMX roadtrip is almost like a booby trap. Take 6 guys across 2000kms, sleeping in tents and flinging themselves down staircases and handrails on a daily basis, there is bound to be setback.. or three.
This trip embodied Murphy’s Law. From broken bikes to equally broken bodies, to finding our campsite nearly submerged after a hail storm.
We soldier on, and we make the best of an otherwise incredible landscape through the middle of South Africa, and we do what we set out to do, ride new spots and make memories with our friends.
