The annual Bowl To Be A Trail Jam over in France always looks like such a good time. The crew over at Soul dropped their highlight video from this years jam giving us a look at what everyone got into. As always, it appears like there was a huge turn out, the dirt jumps were dialed in, everyone had a super good time and the party went late into the night!
Soul BMX released this dialed video that features Florent Soulas. Not only is this video packed full of amazing riding with Florent’s incredible style, but it also has a bit of an interview with it giving us some insight into how he got into Oyster farming, his past of racing, gardening, juicing and more. We already knew he was an absolute shredder on a bike, but we didn’t know much about what he was into off his bike. Excellent watch! Enjoy!
“FIT’s Florent Soulas has always interested us here at DIG. Never one to put himself into the spotlight we wanted to know a bit more about the man behind the ridiculous front end skills. In conjunction with Soul and Ben Bello, we’re happy to bring you a documentary by Antoine Sabourin delving into the world of oyster farming, family life, mangled pancreases, and of course Florent supplies some of those wild signature clips.

It’s safe to say Malaga, Spain is the place to go when the weather heads south and you need some sunshine and BMX in your life. Soul BMX dropped this new video from some time a crew from France spent riding the plentiful skateparks, trails and street spots. This video is packed full of good times and some dialed riding! If this doesn’t make you want to ditch the cold and snow for some Malaga, you’re crazy.
“Malaga is the destination of BMX Winters. See why in this warm gathering of 15 french riders from Bordeaux.

This is a pretty cool concept. DIG and Soul teamed up for a unique trip they sent Kevin Kalkoff and Thomas Benedetti on. Neither ride knew where they were going, but found out they were on the way to Croatia once they got to the airport. Here’s a video giving you a look at what both of these guys stacked for clips during their visit! Although they had no time to plan and possibly scope out some spots early, they didn’t appear to have any trouble coming across spots!
“We’re always proud to support likeminded BMX media people out there so we’re more than happy to announce long time Gallic print bothers Soul as our official DIG media partner for France. Check out our first collaborative release with them below and be sure to go and check out their all new online direction at http://soulbmxmag.com
There’ll be lots of DIG X SOUL projects to come but meantime check out what their editor Ben Bello had to say about the first ever Soul Blind Trip in conjunction with Monster Energy.
“It’s one of those idea that makes you smile when you come up with it, but also one of those idea that complicates your life because you will never give up on making it a reality. The idea was simple and challenging: take a rider on a trip to a city never knowingly visited by Pro riders, and announce the destination when we bring the rider to the airport; just for the pleasure of seeing his face when he learns the news. We chose France’s Kevin Kalkoff (Vans) for this first episode, told him he was going on trip, and gave him nothing more than the date. To add some brotherhood we also invited his brother Thomas Benedetti (Haro/eclat)to surprise him by joining the tour. Both discovered their destination to be SPLIT, in Croatia, a beautiful city on the Adriatic coast with many spots in the surroundings.” – Ben Bello / http://soulbmxmag.com/
