This past week was what we would call a good week for web videos. Going through all of the videos, it was hard to narrow it down since each page of the Daily Section brought more videos that turned out good as hell. This week there are 16 videos that turned out so good that I wanted to make sure you saw them or remembered you wanted to see it again. Let’s get into this hot mess of goodness.
To say the FIT U.K team did a great job on this one would be an understatement.
“We jumped in the van(s) and took our annual Fit UK trip to the Atlantic coast of France and Spain this year. Vincent Perraud treated us to some fine spots, fine wine, and fine weather with the crew battling through some almost vomit inducing 39° heat in places to get the job done, enjoy.
Featuring Ben Lewis, Marv, Owain Clegg, Daniel Benson, Farren Downes & Addy Snowdon, with a guest appearance from Florent Soulas.

Keep in mind that these are Rob’s “scraps” for the Markit Zero DVD that’s cooking…
“For this months MARKIT edit, we decided to head out to Utah to film Rob Wise destroy all of his local spots. This is a side of Rob’s riding most people haven’t got to witness yet, and of corse he manages to come up with something we’ve never seen before. Make sure to watch an you will enjoy!
Guards- I see it coming“
Two Kevin Porter edits for Empire in less than a week? That’s a good way to keep a week going strong and proper.
“Kevin Porter likes fun, and i will defend his right to have fun with my last dying breath and droplet of blood!“
BMX needs more contests like this….
“For the 4th consecutive year 55 of the world’s BMX dirt elite – among them Anthony Napolitan (USA), Rob Darden (USA), Kye Forte (UK), Paul Langlands (NZ), Dave Dillewaard (AUS) and many more — came to the legendary Peynier Trails in the South of France to compete for an overall prize money of 7.000 Euro on the famous line through the pine woods of Peynier. This is the official video from VANS Kill the Line 2012. Chris Doyle was the 1st place finisher, Mike “Hucker” Clark placed 2nd, TJ Ellis was 3rd and Simon Moratz from Germany took home the UNIT Best Trick. Check out peynierbmx.com for more info. See you 2013!” – Vans
I don’t know why the hell this took so long to drop. Russell Wadlin always breaks the mold and reminds everyone to get creative with BMX. Love this stuff.
“Had this one sitting around for like, 6 months at least. Finally cared enough to put it online for friends and family to see.” – Vanilla
I won’t lie, I had no clue Ralphy Ramos was this good.
“Ralphy is the man. He pretty much proves it with this short, but full of bangers edit. We couldn’t be more proud to have him reppin’ Base RALPHYLIFE!!! Filmed by Harrison Boyce and John Hicks.” – Base Brooklyn
These Slay The Rail contests keep getting better with each year it happens. I can’t wait to see what comes from the House of Hammers contest they are throwing.
“Slay the Rail 2012 went off in a big way. 24 riders went head to head in one of Melbourne’s most notorious clubs. Brock Olive schooled the assembled crew to take the win and best trick with Matt “Tenna” Spencer coming in close behind after some of the most brutal slams of the night. Good times, BMX and good crew, what more could you want!

You don’t need to give Brock Olive much time to produce some wild riding, that’s for sure.
“Filmed over an evening session at Rideon Indoor park in Brisbane. Crazy combos went down…” – Colony
Coco Zurita brings some serious style to vert. This is so good.
“When camp shuts down and the world sleeps, Coco Zurita emerges from the darkness. @cocozurita @dylanpfohl http://www.dylanpfohl.com
Thanks to Jake Kinney, Juan Ignacio Zurita, Nicolas Illanes and Eli Waterhouse”
Incase you needed a reminder of how good Daniel Sandoval is, this new one for Vans should do the trick. That ender is nuts.
Jordan Dwan’s section from the BMXfu “Guy Stuff” video is so good. Here’s your chance to check it out.
“One of my all-time favorite sections I have put together of one of the most underrated riders I know. Get into it, Dwan is the fucking mane.” – Charlie Crumlish
Nick Seabasty is one dude to keep your eyes out for. I’m so stoked on this one for Primo. Honestly, Primo has been on fire since they rejuvenated the brand with some new riders. I’m stoked on where things are going for them.
I told you I was stoked on the guys Primo has been hooking up. Here’s another perfect example from Josh De Reuss.
“Josh De Reus’s welcome to Primo is just a small portion of things to come, Few clips over the last bit of winter down here in New Zealand.

Ryan Taylor has some serious bangers on a bike and JC Pieri does a banger of a job with the camera work. Can’t go wrong with that.
“Ryan Taylor spent some times in the south of France
we filmed some clips during the Vans Kill the line for HyperBike Co.

Here’s another video that sat locked up for a few months before it was released for our viewing pleasure. I really need more Benn Pigot footage in my life. Check out this promo for his signature Datura bars from Tempered. Also, if you recall from above…. John Young made it on the list twice this week. What a champ.
“Just a few clips of Benn from before he broke his wrist, then he was riding again then injured his back now he’s riding again so this is pretty damn old and wasn’t released for reasons unbeknown to me.
(editors note- Benn: “Fucking finally! So sorry this took so long guys”)
Filming is in progress for the Backbone DVD.

Sleep’s Holy Mountain”
You can NEVER go wrong with some fresh Ben Lewis footage.
“In celebration of Ben Lewis’ new signature stem release, we put this edit together to show you how Benny puts it to the test.

That wraps up another edition of Video Recap! Next week will be a little crazy with Interbike, but I’ll try and keep up with all the edits and shit that drops all week so we can have a fresh edition for you next week, but I don’t want to make any promises since Interbike week always kicks my ass… hard. Either way, check back next week since I’m sure I’ll get the job done.
