Pete Sawyer made his way to the Clapham Park for a warm up session before going out to film for his new Vans video. While he was there, Mike King clocked a ton of rad clips that couldn’t go to waste! Check out this video for Fast Forward BMX that’s well worth checking out!
Here’s the latest Fast Forward BMX edit from Epic TV featuring a few of the U.K’s finest getting some time in at BaySixty6 skatepark! Check it!
“It’s hard to believe that despite so many talented riders living in and around England’s capital, Nike’s BaySixty6 remains the only covered skate park within two hours from London. Formally ‘Play Station Skatepark’ it was bought out by Nike Skateboarding two years ago and the gloomy, haggard park underwent a full refurbishment resulting in undoubtedly the best park to ever be built under a bridge…at least in the UK. BMX riders are only allowed to ride BaySixty6 twice a week, with one of those sessions being a shared (and usually packed) Sunday afternoon. The other is the now classic Tuesday ‘Bike Night’. Check out some dialled clips and lines filmed over the course of winter and spring Bike Nights as the boys escape the wet… But not necessarily the cold. Retreat To BaySixty6” – Epic TV
Can’t go wrong with a new Dan Boiski video! Check him out slaying spots all over in England in this new edit!
“For the past 6 months, United Bike Co, Animal, and Premier Store’s Dan Boiski ventured far and wide through England with director Mike King to bring you this fresh new edit. Delving deep into London, Brighton, and Liverpool in search of spots, they hit universities and housing projects, schools and plazas, main streets and back streets to bring you three golden minutes of one of the U.K’s steeziest street riders. Music: Damola – In My Zone Produced by General Beatz” – Epic TV
Sometimes BMX trips don’t go to plan… In fact, I’m willing to bet there’s never been a single one that has actually gone to the exact plan… This new FFWD BMX video shows you just because nothing went to plan, it doesn’t mean good times can’t be had!
“With parts of the UK suffering from the ‘wettest January on record’ Mike King, Matt Priest, Oli Jones, and James Cunningham, decided to go on an impromptu trip to France, maybe even Belgium if the weather cooperated. Well…it didn’t. Instead, they ended up in Abbeville’s 80100 park, where they had kindly been invited to ride behind closed doors – although this wasn’t exactly the case when they got there. But they persevered and moved on to the new, indoor skate park in Calais where they were hoping to get another (semi) private session. But with bad luck already stalking them they showed up to the park with only 45 minutes until their ferry departed for England. They rode it anyway and missed their ferry. All in all, a pretty successful trip.” – Epic TV

Take a look at Isaac Lesser getting some time in at the new Rush Skatepark along with a few other parks in this fresh video from Epic TV.
“Isaac Lesser is one hell of a guy. This Essex, England native is a two-wheeled BMX vagabond, traveling the world to compete in the biggest competitions and find the best new spots to ride and shoot video. This autumn he rocked up to the new Rush skatepark in Stroud, England – one of the biggest parks in Europe – and laid down a few filthy sessions. Keep an eye out for the insane bowl drop at the end.”

Mike King was sitting on a bunch of extra footage from his time over in Vancouver a little while back, so he pieced together this rad new mix video for FFWD BMX for us all to enjoy!
“This is a slight kick back now, but we thought we’d hold onto this one until our new website dropped.
Mostly left over clips from Dillon Lloyd’s Vans edit (vimeo.com/69953399) and skatepark jibs, but these guys rule.
Check out the homies Greg Flag, Taylor Elvy, Adam Piatek, Matt Desson, Dave Scott AKA Shuvlife and of course Dillon Lloyd.
