We’ve seen some foootage from the new Source Park surfacing the past few days. Today we get an official BMX video from the grand opening that the Source crew produced. Check out riding from Dan Lacey, Kriss Kyle, Kevin Kalkoff, Lima, Matt Priest, Ben Lewis and a few others, with some insight from these guys on what they think of the place. We can’t believe how amazing the place turned out and it’s crazy to see what it looked like (watch the beginning of the videO) before they transformed it to what it is now. Phenomenal.
What are you doing on February 20th? Well, if you’re in the Los Angeles area, you need to be heading to Thee Block to meet up with the Monster Energy team to hit the streets to get in on filming for the up coming year of The Street Series!

It has been a little while since we’ve caught up with Ben Lewis, so when we saw he dialed in his bike before making a trip over to the U.S. to film for the Etnies “Chapters” DVD, we figured it would be the perfect time to take a closer look at his Fit Bike Co. Benny L V2 setup decked out with Fit and Animal Bikes parts and to find out what he has cooking with his sponsors and plans for the year now that 2016 is under way! Ready? Let’s take a closer look at this unit!
Name: Ben Lewis
Here’s one for you guys. Ryan Navazio decided to upload the BMX video from a trip to Japan that Mark Gralla, Jeff Kocsis, Ben Lewis, Tyrone Williams, Nigel Sylvester, Tom White and Nick Benson took back in 2013. This was part of the QSS 6 video that was released based around the trip. This one has been online before, but Ryan re-uploaded it to his personal Youtube channel, which was a good enough reason for us to repost it, since it’s a real good watch. Take it all in!
DUB BMX have released Ben Lewis‘ section from the “Graft” Mixtape online for your viewing pleasure. Ben comes through with a ton of amazing clips with grinds, wallrides and freecoaster madness that you gotta check out. Ben makes a lot of this stuff look way easier than it really is, too.
Fit Bike Co. have uploaded Ben Lewis‘s section from the “Holy Fit” DVD online for your viewing pleasure. As you can imagine, this section is packed with grind after grind and line after line. Ben makes this all look too easy, but in reality this technical of riding is so damn hard. Get on the play button and enjoy this BMX video already!

Today they have released the entire “Below” section in one for your viewing pleasure! Hit play, kick back and get the perspective of each of the guys involved in this project.
“ABOVE BELOW is the first full-length BMX feature from Monster Energy in association with DIG BMX. This two part film sees a diverse group of riders Ben Lewis, Dakota Roche, Fernando Laczko, Ed Zunda, Nathan Williams and Dan Lacey travel the world pushing the limits of BMX progression under the watchful lens of the director, Richard Forne.
BELOW then shows you how each rider achieved their goals in the face of setbacks from not only security and the eye of the law but also frustration and injury. By voicing the viewpoints of some of the BMX world’s top riders and industry figureheads, BELOW taps into the true meaning of the sport, culture and its ambitious yet creative approach.
ABOVE BELOW documents what it is to have a goal and achieve that at any cost. Watch this and whether you have ridden a BMX bike your whole life or never even set foot on a pedal, this is a movie that will inspire you to get out and get at it.
