Here’s a short but sweet one from this years Goodwood Festival over in the UK! Get a look at Chris Doyle, Mike ‘Hucker’ Clark, Ben Wallace, Matt Roe, Kye Forte, Leo Forte, Corey Bohan, Tom Justice and Harry Main spending some time jumping the dirt jumps and riding the wood quarter. Based off the footage, this was more of a good time since the trains and doubles action look to be pretty far from serious. Still some great riding in this, as you would expect from a crew like this!
I’ll be honest, when I saw the title of this video I did not expect this one! Profile Racing‘s U.K riders, Phil Aller, Lima, Martyn Tambling and Leo Forte, recently spent some time getting their DIY on at an old abandoned sound barrier for an airport. This video gives you a look at what went into the project and some of the good times they had from their labor! This looks super fun to ride. Check it!
“A few of the Profile Europe dudes headed to an abandoned airfield base during September, to construct a huge transition over a nearly perfect sound barrier. Check out our adventure in this awesome video by Ryan Hallett.

There’s no denying that the U.K has some amazing spots to ride. The Boarding House compiled a list of those spots and put out a little book that helps you find those spots. United‘s Harry Mills-Wakley and Leo Forte have already put it to good use. Check the video!
“The Boarding House produce a South West spot guide each year, so we sent Harry Mills-Wakley and Leo Forte in search of a copy to uncover some of the treats contained in it’s pages…“
Profile riders Leo Forte and Martyn Tambling, along with photographer Dunk and videographer Ryan Hallett headed up a mountain to rebuild and shred an old mini ramp. While that was cool and all, I think the best part is when they set out to ride the natural set ups that they find on the mountain. The last clip looks really scary!
“A little farewell compilation video featuring some of the fun times had on the 4Down garden ramp over the years before its demolition in August 2013 by the human wrecking ball known as The Fids. Featuring Rob Castle, Luke Peeters, Dan Barber, Fathead, Leo Forte, Kye Forte, Wildcat, Alex Kennedy, Dean Hearne, James Cox, Owain Clegg and Jimmy Rushmore.“- 4Down
United‘s Nathan Williams, Kye Forte, Leo Forte, Jimmy Rushmore and Harry Mills-Wakley are hitting the road in June for a few shop stops. If you are near any of these shops I highly advise you make your way because it’s going to be a hell of a good time.
Kye Forte recently teamed up with Samsung to get himself into the Guinness Book of World Records for the High Jump on a BMX Bike. They had Leo Forte build up a rad kicker setup that sent Kye up 6.38 meters (20′-11″) for the record. Check out this video giving you a look at it all go down.
Serious question… How do you become an officiator for Guinness? That would be a sweet job.
“Kye Forte has recently smashed the world record for BMX High Jump in the latest #Breakfree film from Samsung and Jam. The previous record for the highest ramp jump on a bicycle had been 5.6 meters and Kye managed 6.4!As part of the record attempt, he was allowed 3 goes. He managed it within 2!
Samsung helped Kye, a globetrotting BMX superstar, realise a life-long dream to jump his bike more than 6 metres in the air. Throughout the film, Kye and his brother Leo use Samsung Galaxy Notes to scout locations, plan, design and build a bespoke ramp before they shatter the previous world record by more than a meter. It’s the first time that Kye has worked with a tech brand but as he regularly uses the handset was happy to be use the technology to attempt the record.
Kye is the creator of the Red Bull Empire of Dirt extreme BMX event currently housed at Alexandra Palace. ”
