Another week went blazing by and it was a good one. Not only did we have a ton of dialed videos posted up in the Daily Section, we were able to add Brett Rohlfing to the team to help us out with posting even more of the wild videos, news, products and everything you check that section out for. I’v’e gone through the roughly 170 posts over the week and dug out 18 of the best videos featuring the likes of Max Bimar, Ronnie Napolitan, Keith Hartwell, Chad Kerley, Luc LeGrand, Mike Gray, Keith Schmidt, Mick Bayzand, Corey Martinez, Nathan Williams, Mark Burnett, Jordan Murdock, Colin Loudon, Isaac Lesser and many, many more for you to enjoy. Let’s get into this!
Above we have Mike Gray’s section from The Hunt‘s “Gold Rush” video. When it originally popped up online, I was thinking I had seen these clips before, but wasn’t sure if it was just a remix of his clips from the section mixed with new stuff or what… Well, turns out I’m an idiot and it’s his full part from the video. If this isn’t an indicator as to why you should pick the actual DVD up, I don’t know what else you could need.
“Mike Gray kicks off Hunt Month with his exclusive video part from The Hunt’s Gold Rush. With his mix of tech street riding and bomb drops off roofs, Mike earned his spot in The Hunt video with the help of fellow Canadian filmer Justen Soule.”
Four words – Chad Kerley at OB.

Ever since Deluxe introduced me to team rider, Max Bimar, I’ve become a huge fan of this dude. Soooo much style. Take a little ride with him at his home trails, Peynier, in France.
Music : Lords of the new church – Russian roulette.
Luc Legrand has always been one of those riders I’ve been a big fan of. This new Etnies edit is a clear reminder as to why. Turns out he’s also on BSD, so that should mean we will be seeing a hell of a lot more of him again here in the near future.
At this current point in time, I think if you bring a good crew to somewhere with sunshine and warmth, they’re going to end up producing some damn good riding. This winter has stuck along too long, and I’m jealous of the Almond team that spent time down in Miami, Florida recently. Oh, and this was a good way to welcome David Grant to the pro team as well.
“Florida is dead. Theres nothing there… We took the risk and it paid off. Jeff Kocsis, Lloyd Wright, Jared Washington and IZ Pulido flew to Miami, Florida and stayed in the worst flea ridden motel in the state. During the trip David Grant came down and joined the fun, also bagging himself on the PRO team. The following is filmed and edited by Darryl Tocco and filmed over 8 days.”
I’m not going to lie, there are times I think Ronnie Napolitan is way under rated. Edits like this make me feel that way.
“Ronnie is a destroyer. From the parks of the northwest to the streets of San Diego and Phoenix and a few stops in between. Keep an eye out on Ronnie for his part in the upcoming full length MARKIT BMX video!

I’m stoked that Colony is now uploading sections from their first DVD from 2011. Mick Bayzand is up to bat first and it’s a banger. If you didn’t see this DVD, you blew it, but you will have your chance to take it all in over the next few weeks.
“Mick Bayzand’s section from our DVD which came out in 2011, we hope you enjoy this…
Filmed and edited by Stu Munro.
Additional filming from Cooper Brownlee, Clint Millar and Ryan Navazio.
The Freed Bikes brand might be a new one, but so far they have been making all of the right moves to get the ball rolling. They took their first real team trip to Barcelona and they came back with plenty of footage. Check out part one above!

Jordan Murdock came up with some gold for Cult this week!
There’s no denying that Keith Schmidt is a wildcat on a bike. This new Hyper edit is a good reminder of it.

What happens when you team Isaac Lesser up with Mike King? You get a banger of an edit for FFWD.
“Isaac Lesser and Luke Duffy worked their asses off all winter for this Fast Forward BMX exclusive and the result is awesome!
From sketchy Essex Estates, to the City of London, down to sunny seaside spots in Brighton, Duffy and Isaac travelled far and wide in the worst of conditions and their efforts definitely shine in this one.
Isaac is repping the F.T.L. crew and also has a signature ‘F.T.L’ seat coming soon from Mankind Bike Co, so be on the lookout for that one!
Thanks again to Isaac and Luke Duffy for working so hard on this one!
Music: Fitz And The Tantrums – Moneygrabber

MarieJade‘s Alex Valentino, Renaud Coquillon, Joris Coulomb and Arnaud Wolff spent two days in the south of France and they came back with this edit you won’t want to miss.
“From the sunny coast to the urban streets of California, Keith can ride anything.
Guest Rider: Juan Guerrero

Music: “Death Penalty” – Witchfinder General”
Always stoked on some fresh footage from the 1664 guys. Looks like they’ve had a bit of a thaw up in Canadia too.
“This past Easter long weekend was a perfect chance to kick off spring with a little road trip. Schubert, Darcy, and Isaac headed to the Kootenays with there friends, Sam Jepson, and Aaron Cheng. Good times were had, and they managed to whip up a little mix from the weekend.
Filming: Andrew Schubert, Isaac Barnes

If you have wondered what the trick is to getting sponsored these days is, this is a good way of doing it. Mark Burnett bumped into the Shadow Conspiracy guys last year and killed it on his bike. He kept at it, and now they’ve decided it would be a good time to get him involved with the team. That’s how it’s done.
“Shadow is proud to welcome Mark Burnett to the family. We met Mark at Woodward Camp last year and the team was absolutely floored by his skills on a bike. We kept a close eye on him for a bit and we’ve decided he’s a perfect fit for our crew. Check out his welcome edit and let us know what you think. Not bad for a 15 year old.

I’m a big fan of style and Colin Loudon has plenty of it in this new Monster video.

I had fun making this edit especially since i got to write my own music for it and ride some awesome spots along the way!”
Only good things happen when you put Nathan Williams, Corey Martinez and Will Stroud together for a little session. Check out this new video for Cinema Wheel Co. for proof.
“Corey and Nathan hit the Brook Run park in Atlanta for a fun session before packing up the van and heading back to Nashville.

It’s always a good thing when we can wrap each week up with a full-length DVD. The guys at FBM uploaded the “Vagabond Ritual” DVD in its entirety for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy!
“Vagabond Ritual is an FBM feature film, with some of the most colorful characters in BMX traveling to and riding some of the best spots; Kona, Philly, NYC, Little Rock, Austin, Tucson, Sasquatch Canyon and Beyond! Get in the van and see what happens when Ruel Smith, Kenny Horton, the Ginch Bros, Jackson Allen, Eric Hennessey and the FBM crew and friends let loose on America’s freeways…”
