If there’s one thing I know, it’s that every week BMX will continue to blow my mind in the form of riders from all over the world. Sure, we’ll see a lot of videos from riders with similar styles, doing similar tricks, using similar songs… But there’s still always going to be a handful that will stand out and blow your mind. I’ve gone through the Daily Section and pulled out 23 (Yeah, it was a good week) of the BEST BMX videos that dropped this past week for your viewing pleasure. You can find riding from Tim Knoll, Dan Foley, Randy Brown, Zac Miner, Raphael Jeroma Williams, Brett Banasiewicz, Mat Roe, Chase DeHart, Dakota Roche, Daniel Penafiel, Kenneth Tencio, Roy Van Kempen, Mehdi Vivens, Emil Eriksson, Dillon Lloyd, Clint Millar, Garrett Reynolds, Ty Morrow and many, many more! Let’s get into this!
Do I really need to explain why Tim Knoll’s video is in the top spot this week? It has well over 3.5 million views to justify this decision. If you want to know what the definition of freestyle is… This is the one to watch. Be prepared for your brain to melt!
The Hideout videos NEVER disappoint. Their latest mixtape is loaded with everything from riding to great filming and editing… Which is expected after 13 of these videos!
Full sections from Robbo and Chris Jenner
Local secret spot footage and street riding from Mikey Palmer, Gaz Docker and Louis Morris
The idea behind 13 was to try and make a web edit with a bit more of a scene report feel.
To make something that sums up our BMX lifestyles at this point in time, here in the UK.

I said it once… I’ll say it again. There’s not enough Randy Brown footage going around these days. This new S&M edit is good as hell though!
“Randy Brown bringing that S&M steeze in the East! Dude puts his RB V2 to work in this one!
Music: ” Over Under Sideways Down ” – The YardBirds”
Brett Banasiewicz posted a quick video on Vine the other day… Anyone who has been in BMX for a while has known that Brett has been fighting back from a traumatic brain injury that completely took him off his bike and relearning how to use his entire body. This video of him doing a tailwhip is absolutely amazing since just a few weeks ago he was just starting to pedal around on a bike again! Hell yeah, Brett!
These Cool Story, Bro videos that Mutiny has been pumping out have been amazing. This new one featuring Mat Roe is just that!
“On and off the bike this dude never ceases to amaze and inspire those around him. Liquid comes to mind when I think about Roey’s riding, it all looks so good and effortless. Get a little insight into the one and only Mathew Peter Roe.
“Monster Rally is the brainchild of 23 year old Columbus (Ohio) resident and Cleveland native Ted Feighan. Producing music that is sampled-based tropical pop, Monster Rally began with the goal of assembling a bunch of old records into a completely different beast. Feighan began crafting tracks from his collection of records, combining his interests in Hip-hop, Exotica, Tropicalia, and Soul. Monster Rally creates tracks that manage to maintain a surprisingly organic sound, as if they were recorded by a full band on analog tape. There is something inherently nostalgic about the sound” – Gold Robot Records.”
It’s not all too often that Chase DeHart drops a web edit… But when he does, you know it’s worth watching. Take a look at his latest for Cult.
“Check out the first CULT SESSIONS edit from CHASE DEHART…These are clips from exactly what it says “sessions” that we hit on the regs…Not a DVD, not a webisode just fucking riding we would be doing with or without a camera…Hopefully this motivates you to do the same…Expect more of this sooner than later…”
Dakota Roche has been out recovering from knee surgery for a little while now, but it looks like he was able to stack a lot of real good footage of him getting it done right before he went under the knife… At least I’d assume that’s the case with this welcome edit to Stance socks.
“Stance proudly introduces our newest addition to the Punks and Poets, professional BMX street rider, Dakota Roche. Dak hails from Huntington Beach, CA, but can be spotted worldwide riding in premiere competitions and stacking footage in his unique and creative riding style. We are stoked to have a new ripper to add to our arsenal of eclectic talent.”
The full sections from The Grumet’s video “The Right Fluke” were flowing all week long. If you are digging Raphael Jeroma Williams’ section, you can check out more here.
There’s no denying that the Dan’s Comp team is beyond stacked. This new video they dropped from a warm up session is fire!
“Stevie Churchill, Shane Weston, Morgan Long, and Devon Smillie hit up the Brook Run Skatepark in Dunwoody, Georgia for a quick session. Filmed and edited by Stew Johnson for Dan’s Comp. Full length Dan’s Comp DVD in the works, look for it later this year.
“Child of a Dying Star”
Even Zac Miner’s b-roll footage is awesome. That’s a good problem to have.
“A collection of crashes, outtakes, 2nd angles and unscene footage from the filming for Zac Miner’s recent Colony edit.” – Colony
Animal released the random section from the “They Too Crusty Wit It” video which is jam packed with some serious heavy hitters and legends. So, so good.
I’ve been a big Dan Rosenthal fan since before he moved to Australia a few years ago. It gets me so stoked whenever he drops a new edit in my inbox because he is an absolute shredder.
“Filmed around Australia over the past few years. Mostly around Melbourne and Victoria. Additional places include Perth, WA
Rider: Daniel Rosenthal (Danimal)
Additional riders in train. Joel Rodriguez and Sebastian Wak
Filmed with a Canon XH-A.
Additional help with filming by: Igor Maric, Damion Banko, Johnny Davey, Ben Horton, Andrew Gul, Joel Rodriguez, Dave McCombe, Dean Manson, and Doug Underhill.”
Style matters. That’s a fact. Dan Foley knows all about style and this new Premium edit is loaded with Greenville style.
“With summer heat just around the corner Dan takes advantage and gets some riding in at his local skateparks.

Fly Bikes dropped this edit featuring Melo and Rubio cruising the spots around Santa Cruz de Tenerife and needless to say the riding is just as appealing on the eyes as the filming and editing.
“Daniel “Melo” Martos headed over to Santa Cruz de Tenerife to spend some time and ride with Rubén “Rubio” Rodriguez. With this island being Rubio’s home and it offering some of the best weather and incredible riding spots, they had an amazing time. Check out this edit where the two show off their unique style.”
Daniel Penefiel is one rider you can always count on coming through with some great riding. This new Vans video has plenty of that in it.
“Here’s a fresh one from our Spanish BMX Team rider Daniel Penafiel.
Daniel is from Burgos, Spain and rides park and street. He’s a rider with a lot of style and a big bag of tricks.
Enjoy this little web series!”
Kenneth Tencio is a pretty unheard of rider… Which is a bummer because his riding is absolutely nuts. This video is a compilation of some of his wildest clips from his past edits. I’d advise you get familiar with this guys name because I have a feeling he won’t be slowing down any time soon.
A little team work from Federal‘s Roy Van Kempen and Mehdi Vivens who crushed some spots around Amsterdam for this one!
“Mehdi Vivens stayed at Roy van Kempen’s place in Amsterdam for a week to film for a Federal Split video. The footage is from 3 days of riding because the weather was horrible. Big shout out to Soulcycle/RocknRoll distribution for letting us ride their warehouse obstacles.”
I don’t want to discredit Dillon Lloyd’s riding in this new Northern Embassy edit, because it’s loaded with heat… But I’m more than pumped to see the guest clips of Jay Miron still riding! Legend!
“Dillon had a layover day in Vancouver Saturday May 25th, on his way from Montreal to Hong Kong for the Eclat Kings of Kong trip. Dillon actually did a fair amount of drinking the night before, which lead to a layover/hangover Saturday.
What started out as a rainy day ended up being an awesome day, between finding a bunch of dry spots and riding with some good friends/ Canadian Legends, we made the best of Dillon’s Vancouver layover/ hangover.
Filmed and edited by Jeremy Deme”
Clint Millar and Pete Radivo might have very different styles, but their split part from the Colony DVD surfaced this past week and it’s good as hell! Front brake magic!
“Clint Millar & Pete Radivo’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 and Ryan Navazio.”
I’ll stick with my original caption for this one…
“This is rad. In conjunction with The Video Issue (issue 94) of DIG dropping, United hooked them up with a rough draft of “This Is United” that James Cox put together during the filming to give the team an idea of what they had for the video so far. Obviously, the final version is much different, but this video has a lot of unseen footage and songs that never made it into the final video. If you’re looking to kick back for a bit, this video is for you! Hit play!”
Now this is what I like to see with an edit.. Straight to the point shredding. Shadow Conspiracy‘s Emil Eriksson gets it done right.
“Swedish Shadow rider Emil Eriksson has a style that he can undoubtedly call his own. With fast moves and big drops, this brand new edit shows just that.”
Redline has one hell of a well rounded team. This video from their recent trip to Texas is a good reminder of just how good each of these guys are. Even old man Flip managed to show you kids what those front brakes are made for.v
“The Redline Team headed to Texas this spring, hitting spots in Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. This edit features footage from the extended Redline Texas Tour DVD that will be released later in the year. Check out clips of Brandon Dosch, Tyler Fernengel, Josh Hult, Zack Gerber, Glenn Salyers, Brandon Christie and Flip.”
Even though the caption for this video was the ultimate mind fuck for a few minutes until I realized the video hadn’t actually been released without anyone knowing… This video dropped just in time to build some hype for the actual release in just a few days. I can’t wait to see the Deadline video…
“After four years in the making, “The Deadline” finally dropped in the Fall of 2012 . If you’re still thirsty for some more action check out these behind the scenes clips from heavy hitters Sean Ricany, Miles Rogoish, Steve Coreau, Dan Lacey, JJ Pamere, Aaron Brenner, Kevin Kiraly, Garrett Reynolds, Tyler Morrow, Shelby Miller and Bruce Hoffman shot by Crooked World. Its sure to hold you over until their next edit.”
