There are only a handful of places on this earth we’re not really sure if we’ve seen much, if any, footage from. Iran is one of those countries and it looks like that all changes now. BSD‘s Luc Legrand, Antony Lille, along wth Clement Baes and filmer Antoine Sabourin recently saw their chance and took it to explore a country that most don’t consider. Based off this BMX video, it’s safe to say this place is one big untapped spot and the people appear to be pretty amazed by what these guys are doing on two wheels. Pretty amazing stuff since Iran always gets painted as a pretty rough place to go.
“The BSD hippies are back and this time they threw out the rule book and took advantage of Iran’s recent increased leniency on their visa applicants. Forget what you think you already know and watch on as Luc Legrand, Antony Lille and guest rider, Clement Baes ride bikes and enjoy a country that most would be scared to even consider visiting, let alone smith grind through. Sit back and enjoy!” – DIG
“In the current world climate and with the help of the propaganda of political pundits, lots of friends don’t understand… why Iran? It’s dangerous… blah blah blah… Whatever, all I can say is that it was one of the best experiences in life for all of us. The Iranian people we met were just so nice, hospitable and curious about the world. We were able to speak about all of the big subjects… religion, politics and war. They know of what the rest of the world thinks of them. They know that it is all geo-politics. They aren’t angry about American people but they are against imperialist politics. They are afraid of undergoing the same fate as all the countries which surround them. Anyway, we met incredible people, discovered the Persian culture, ate good food, saw crazy landscapes and we rode some originals spots for our littles bikes… So, switch off the TV and open your mind. No more wars, love is gonna win!” – Antoine Sabourin
