Here we go again. This past week was a real solid week for BMX videos. I’ve gone through all the posts I made in the Daily Section and ended up picking out 15 of the best edits from the week. This time around we’ve got a bomb shell from Dan Lacey (pun intended) along with videos featuring Cory Wiergowski, Mat Hoffman, Brian Terada, Max Bimar, Dirt Ron, Kevin Porter, Jack Maddock, Kris Fox, Ed Zunda, Greg Illingworth and more! Let’s take a peek!
All right, so this weeks top pick was pretty obvious as soon as I hit the play button. Everything from the look on Dan Lacey and Bruno Hoffmann’s faces to the banger of an ender made Dan’s new edit for Chain Reaction and easy pick as the top spot. If you haven’t watched this yet, you’re completely blowing it… but here’s your chance to check it out!
“You’re gonna need an air raid shelter for this one, as CRC BMX rider Dan Lacey drops bombs all over his latest Team edit. Filmed in Tel Aviv, Israel, and later in Barcelona, Spain, following an injury, Lacey shreds his way through the war-torn streets of the Middle East and smashes out some bangers in the capital of Catalonia. Filmed and edited by Richard Forne with music by Shlomi Attias, this cut sets the bar for the rest to follow this year.”
Greg Illingworth coming in HOT with another banger edit for Mongoose this time around he’s destroying spots around the U.K and Japan. Simply amazing.
“Greg Illingworth shreds spots in Japan and the UK with his signature speed and style.”
Kris Fox is all speed and style. Gotta love this shit!
“Dedicated to Thomas Hancock 9/22/1987-1/14/12
Big Gaps, high speeds and Ozzy that’s what Kris Fox is into. Watch him jump out of various socal skateparks on his SE Heavy Hitter.
A few days after he finished filming for this edit Kris tore his ACL and will be off the bike 6-8 months so send him some love on Instagram and Twitter @krisfoxbmx
Folow @sebikes on Instagram and Twitter to keep up with the team and new products.

Everything from the riding to the filming and editing in this is amazing…
“As the warm days of this past summer wind down, members of the Fly team visit the birth place of Fly Bikes itself, Vigo Spain for its annual “Marisquiño contest”, and although hanging out and seeing old friends is always fun, enjoying the many untapped street spots that Vigo has to offer is the real reason the crew’s in town. With an extra week, Kevin Kalkoff, Stefan Lantschner, Courage Adams and Rubén Rodriguez make good use of their limited time, and when they’ve had their fill of Vigo they head North and spend they’re remaining few days shredding the streets of San Sebastian.” – Fly Bikes
Wethepeople did the internet a favor and uploaded this for the world to enjoy. Brian Friggen Terada!
“Back in 2004 we released ETC, this is Brian Teradas section.
Edited by Thomas Fritscher”
You give Kevin Porter two days in Austin, Texas and you’ll get something sweet out of it.
“Kevin is one of the OG Empire BMX team members, and he recently dropped into the ATX for two days of fun” – Empire
I don’t know what MON’s real name is, but I do know that he kills it on a bike.
“I always like to ride on the streets, but sometimes shredding parks is interesting too.” – MON
Max Bimar made his way to California for some sun and some trails. It would appear he got both including some riding time with Mike Saavedra!
“2 weeks of trail riding in Riverside only for fun.
Thanks to Christine Skjold, Mike and Sal Saavedra and to all I met during this trip.
Also an advert for my Deluxe frame called the Sacre Bleu – out now in the best shops.
Proper trail frame.
Approved I must say.” – Max
Edit and music by Max Bimar. Guitar bass and voice.

Want to know what the crazy part about this is? Mat Hoffman actually dropped 3 different edits this week. Not too shabby for a 41 year old legend with more concussions and surgeries than all of us combined.
Always good to see some fresh footage from Dirt Ron. His approach to riding is so much different than what you see every day. Hell yeah.
“Dirty Ronald Dirt Ron… or the real Ron Pitcher, fires out what he does best on home turf in sunny San Diego, CA.
song: ‘green hell’ by “the misfits”” – Bone Deth
Shawn “Elf” Walters decided to put together the gold he was just sitting on and cash it in for this dialed edit. So stoked on this.
“Here’s a ton of footage i have accumulated over the last couple years that did not have a home. I hope you have a good laugh.
Dave Thompson, Matt beringer, Cam wood, Tate Roskelly, Shawn Elf walters, Rob Wise, Mike Szczesny, Calvin Krey, Richard Fox, Jordan utley, Steve bankroft, Cam Giles, Clint Peters, Colton Dale, Trent Steel, Greg Ingersoll, Casey Barrett”
Volume did the right thing by picking Vincent Candel up. This is a clear indicator as to why I say that.
“Spanish powerhouse and new Volume rider from Spain, Vicente Candel took a special week long trip with filmer/ rider, Javi Benito to the land of endless spots and hot women, which is none other than Barcelona. His speed and flow in this edit is endless, plus there’s some bangers that surprised us all. Thanks again to Javi for making the edit and Vicente for killing it as always. Get watchin’!
Filmed & Edited by Javi Benito
Music: The Tams – “Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy””
Fact: There needs to be more Jack Maddock footage. Check out his new edit for Skavenger that turned out so good.
There’s no denying that Cory Wiergowski has been on fire lately. This new promo for the For The Homies Kit is too good.
“Cory Wiergowski sending this one out to the homies! Cory’s been on fire this year, so to honor his hard work we created the For The Homies Kit which includes a Detroit Tigers inspired beanie and a Tee with Detroit’s skyline on it. Both are available HERE at the Sunday webstore or at www.albes.com. The last move is nuts! Filmed & edited by Zach Krejmas.”
Saving a good on for last… Ed Zunda recently spent some time in Hawaii thanks to his win of the past round of The Hunt. While he was there he stacked up clips for this new Odyssey edit. Can’t go wrong with some Ed Zunda goodness!
“Ed Zunda and Janis Cunculis (filmer/editor) put together the winning entry for THE HUNT’S 2012 GOLD RUSH. As part of their prize package, the two riders from Latvia won a trip to Hawaii to chill at the beach and enjoy some riding done around town. As a souvenir, they brought back this video for us to watch! Also part of the winning prize, Ed will now be getting flow from Odyssey. Thanks guys and congratulations!”
