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 one Mike King put together from some of the sessions going down at the new Seventies warehouse ramp setup over in the U.K! Not only does this place look fun as hell to ride, there’s some damn good riding that has been going down as well! Take a peek!
“What’s the last thing you’d expect to find in a small, seaside town on the South Coast of the UK? How about this… Hastings, home to Seventies BMX Distribution; a pinnacle company in BMX who, since the sport’s early days, have not only distributed some of the finest companies throughout the UK, but hosted the Backyard Jam contests as well as the ‘Our House Jam’ and the ‘Brighton Ain’t Ready’ DVD, one of the most iconic videos to come out of the UK ever. Even now, despite limited space, Seventies make some serious use of their warehouse, filling every available corner with ledges, rails, and huge, fast transitions – just another reason why rider-owned/run companies are awesome. The Seventies crew have it good. Check the madness as Federal Bikes’ James Cunningham and Mark Love, 88 Bike Co’s Ollie Shields and Shadow/Subrosa’s UK TM Oli Jones let loose behind closed doors on a private set up to die for… Thanks to Seventies Distribution! Oh yeah, please do not call or turn up expecting to ride this, it is not open to the public. Music: Bibelots – Devil’s Highway ”
Check out Ryan Winterbotham throwing down a ton of dialed riding at a handful of parks before he loads up and heads over to the U.S! Tons of gold in this one!
“Returning to America has been on the cards for Ryan Winterbotham for a while now. Finally, with ten weeks of California sun booked up and just around the corner, Ryan spends a few sessions in between work to brush off those winter cobwebs before flying out to paradise. Filmed at Brighton, Guildford, Farnborough, and Prevail (Bournemouth) Skateparks in the U.K. Music: Magic Carpet Factory – Twisted Dream

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
