If you have been following Hadrien Picard’s Lumia Pureviews series this past year, you would have caught on by now that he has been creating some amazing videos with some amazing riders in some pretty untouched locations all from Lumia phone. The other day we were treated to the latest video in the series featuring Erik Elstran and Luc Legrand in Belgrade, Serbia! Belgrade is one of those places that we simply haven’t seen anything from in the past, so giving these guys free reign on some untapped spots was bound to lead to some amazing things. Needless to say, both Luc and Erik were able to produce some amazing footage. Today, we have a little behind the scenes look with photos that Hadrien shot throughout the trip for you to enjoy! Check out the full photogallery by visiting the link below!
Did you catch that crazy curved wall ride that Erik Elstran and Luc Legrand did the Grand Belgrade Hotel video that dropped the other day? Well, here’s a behind the scenes look at that spot with some bonus footage. You can also read about the story behind the spot over on the DIG website!
“Belgrade is pretty much curved wall ride heaven and that’s part of the reason why I was really happy to bring Luc Legrand an Erik Elstran, two of my favourite riders, to Belgrade for a week of creative street madness last summer for the Grand Belgrade Hotel video. At first, their riding styles may seem completely different but they both shred on their bikes in a different way to what’s fashionable right now… and they’re really nice guys.
Luc had already been to Belgrade twice before and knew some really good local spots. Actually, he once pulled a crazy wallride down some stairs there that made one of the best ever covers of Soul Magazine. And that’s where we were headed…” – Hadrien Picard
Here it is! Hadrien Picard just sent through his latest Lumia Pureviews video featuring Erik Elstran and Luc Legrand riding street spots and boats in Belgrade! The city isn’t exactly the nicest of places in the world, but it would appear to have plenty of great spots for these guys to ride! Check out what they cooked up in the video above! Ryan Sher is psyched on that ender, too!

Take Belgrade, a city, young and Slavonic, in a post soviet atmosphere, add Erik Elstran an alien from Minnesota & Luc Legrand, a French adventurer; shake it in front of Hadrien Picard’s Lumia 930 and you get a surprising video tribute to latest Wes Anderson movie. Visitor a couple of year ago of this region of southern Europe, Luc guides us into the intriguing “new” city of Belgrade in Serbia full of strange spots and curved wall that fits perfectly with the phenomenal and super skilled Erik Elstran famous for his creative and always entertaining videos. Indeed, the gifted kid wearing goofy shirts forms an unique pair with the always curious Frenchman, and it’s no surprise to see them perform an absolutely mind blowing last trick at the end of this new joyful Lumia Pureviews edit. Don’t miss it !”
