Just when you though you have seen everything from Drew Bezanson‘s ridiculous Uncontainable video from Red Bull, a new video giving you another perspective surfaces. This time around, GoPro have some behind the scenes footage with some crazy angles we haven’t seen yet. Highly, highly suggest you give this a look because it’s just mind blowing how gnarly this all is, even after seeing it so many times. We have re-embedded the Uncontainable video below for your viewing pleasure.
“Enter the dream project of Canadian professional BMX rider Drew Bezanson. When you run out of options on the street it is time to take to the sky, erecting two one of a kind shipping containers in his hometown of Truro, Nova Scotia.
Join us behind the scenes and watch the incredible team of ramp builders, led by Nate Wessel, as they redefine creativity and push the boundaries of what is possible in BMX.
It’s about that time of the year for some hype for Simple Session! This show kicks things off with Drew Bezanson and Pat Casey cruising around Estonia for a bit talking about the contest, then we get a look at the course that Nate Wessel designed and built, then we get highlights from the contest! We can only imagine that Simple Session 16 will be absolute madness.
“The 15 year anniversary Simple Session BMX finals pits the globe’s best BMX riders against each other in what has become the contest to watch for the biggest and most progressive riding anywhere. Hosted at the Tondiraba Hall in Tallinn, Estonia, the course is a brilliant venue for the riders to show off their newest, show stopping tricks.”
Toyota has been going hard on their Tacoma promotions. Here’s a video they just dropped giving a little insight into a trip Drew Bezanson took with a few friends to ride BMX, dirt bikes, mountain bikes and more! … Anyone else feel like they need a truck?
“Don’t miss this rare glimpse into what Pro BMX, MOTO and Snowboard Olympians do for fun. Watch as these fearless pros and their childhood friends answer the “can you play” rally cry in the rugged 2016 Toyota Tacoma filled with toys as they head into the Eastern Sierras in search of hidden playgrounds with stunning natural backdrops. Don’t miss Drew Bezanson and Weston Peick go head-to-head in a friendly mud pit competition while Louie Vito and his crew set up a movie theater at basecamp to watch the spectacular first ups from the weekend.”
Matt Poteet sent through his latest compilation BMX video for your viewing pleasure. This is over 7 minutes of banger footage Matt collected from different videos from Pat Casey, Alex Coleborn, Drew Bezanson, Garrett Reynolds, Dakota Roche, Alex Donnachie, Alex Simon, Dan Lacey, Brock Horneman, Tyler Fernengel, Daniel Sandoval, Dennis Enarson, Kriss Kyle, Broc Raiford, Nick Bruce, Shawn Mcintosh and Tony Hamlin for your viewing pleasure. Talk about some truly amazing riding! Hit play because this doesn’t disappoint.
For the past few years, the Bikes Over Baghdad crew have been making trips over to the Middle East to spend some time hanging out with the troops, doing BMX demos and just getting a look at what it’s like over there. With a heavy crew of guys like Chad DeGroot, Drew Bezanson, Rob Darden, Anthony Napolitan, Mykel Larrin, Nate Wessel, Keith Mulligan, Morgan Wade and a few others, things are bound to get pretty wild. Chad dropped a full report from his trip over on the DECO BMX website, with 4 videos (like the one above) and a bunch of words from the day to day journal he kept. This appears to have been one hell of a trip… Check it!
We had a feeling the second episode of Red Bull‘s “Raditudes” Season 2 would be taking a behind the scenes look at Drew Bezanson‘s absolutely insane and mind boggling Uncontainable video. If the first video didn’t make you feel complete anxiety watching it, this one will. Hit play and watch and see for yourself!
After you watch this, you REALLY need to go re-watch the full Uncontainable video!
“Challenged with tricks he’s never attempted before, and absolutely no room for error, BMX pro Drew Bezanson takes his riding to a breathtaking new level while filming his hit viral video, “Uncontainable.” This exclusive behind the scenes story reveals how friends and family helped make his dreams a reality.
“Raditudes” is an intimate look into what motivates these very individual BMX riders every day.”
Drew Bezanson was recently invited to the Skateland park in Rotterdam during a recent trip out to the Netherlands. Check out this dialed BMX video from the session giving you a look at what Drew threw down, along with a few other guys like Panos Manaras, who were there as well. It’s Drew, so you already know this is one you can’t pass up!
