Here’s a quick video Bo Bridges put together from a vert ramp session Simon Tabron got in recently. This has a handful of remote control helicopter shots that make for a unique look. Seriously not enough vert edits coming out these days.
Haro just picked up two of the younger younger rising talents last month, and now they have added a true BMX legend to the crew! In this edit Simon Tabron shreds his vert ramp and talks about the role that Haro has played in his riding since he was a kid.
This is awesome. Simon Tabron is always a treat to watch ride and this video from some time he spent on Tony Hawk’s ramp is beyond dialed. Check it!

Daaaaaamn. This new video of Simon Tabron absolutely BLASTING the THI vert ramp is awesome. Those alleyoop 540’s he does are so butter. I suggest you check this one out regardless if you like vert or not!
This is awesome. Simon Tabron explains why he chose to take off the pegs and brakes and talks a little bit about how he looks at BMX. Style matters!
“Simon Tabron is an incredible BMX rider and VERT style master. Constantly looking for ways to improve his riding, Simon understands that mastering the intricate details of his tricks makes them look more effortless than ever. In this episode of Off The Record Tabron explains his path to progression that began with removing the pegs and cutting the breaks on his bike opening up dramatic changes to his approach and riding style. Like a paint brush on canvas Tabron’s style is smooth, flowing, and always above the coping!” – Network A
ESPN BMX caught up with Simon Tabron to talk some history of spinning with him. Take a peek!
“U.K. to U.S. BMX Vert transplant Simon Tabron may not have been the first rider to claim the 900 (Mat Hoffman pulled it first in 1989), but there is no doubt that Tabron is the owner of the most consistent 900 spin in all of BMX, as well as the one and only back-to-back 900 in all of vert.
In the above video, Tabron recounts his early days learning 540s (where he mistakenly over-rotated a 360 to fakie), his dalliances with early 900s (where he over-rotated a 540) and the obsession that stirred inside of him after successfully getting the rotation down. But the 900 air isn’t something vert riders can toy around with though. As Simon recounts above, he had to choose his battles of when and where to throw the trick. Sometimes it worked out (at the Worlds in 1991) and sometimes he went eight years without landing them. Video by Justin Kosman” – ESPN BMX
Haha this is awkwardly hilarious. I mean that with the best intentions of telling you that this is worth a look. I can only imagine this is what most vert sessions are like when there isn’t heat of a contest on the line.
“Jamie Bestwick and Simon Tabron get together for an epicly sarcastic vert session. We’ve got massive airs, old school shout-outs, a burly crash and a little bit of spice when Coco Zurita drops by to shake things up. Jamie will you do the Cherokee one footer? Switch Hander? German Salmon?? At least that’s what SHE said!” – Crooked World
