We’ve seen some foootage from the new Source Park surfacing the past few days. Today we get an official BMX video from the grand opening that the Source crew produced. Check out riding from Dan Lacey, Kriss Kyle, Kevin Kalkoff, Lima, Matt Priest, Ben Lewis and a few others, with some insight from these guys on what they think of the place. We can’t believe how amazing the place turned out and it’s crazy to see what it looked like (watch the beginning of the videO) before they transformed it to what it is now. Phenomenal.
The footage from the Source Park grand opening is starting to pop up. Here’s a video that Ride UK dropped from the first sessions that Dan Lacey, Kriss Kyle, Alex Donnachie and Kevin Kalkoff got in, along with a little feedback on their thoughts. This place looks absolutely incredible and so fun to ride. Expect plenty more footage to surface in the next few days.

This past weekend was the grand opening of the new Source Park over in the U.K and it would appear we have the first (unless we missed another) BMX video to surface from the place! Vincent Doczekala and Robin Kachfi caught a plane over to Hastings, England for the event and were lucky enough to be one of the first to leave some scuff marks on the ramps. Check out some of the clips they stacked during their visit!
The incredible new Source Park will be opening its doors in just a few days! They have a bunch of stuff planned for the grand opening and it’s going to be a full house. They’ve set it up so you can book your spot for the session or sessions. If you’re in the Hastings area, there’s no doubt you will want to be at this one! Get the full scoop and info on how to register over on the SOURCE PARK WEBSITE.
“The Source Park will be opening on Saturday 13th February 2016. To mark this special occasion we have a number of top BMX and Skate pros in attendance on the Saturday which will be there riding/skating with you. Plus on the Sunday there will be the Fox team riding and hosting a signing/giveaway.
Spaces for the opening weekend will be limited so we suggest you use the booking tool to reserve your spot (or use it to see if that session is full). Please note that due to nature the opening weekend the sessions will be for BMX and Skateboards only. From Monday the 15th the regular schedule will be in place.”
There’s a real interesting read on The Telegraph over in the U.K about Source BMX‘s new skatepark that they’re working on in the will be found in the old Victorian baths. It gives you some insight into the cost of doing the project and what it could mean for BMX, skateboarding and the city of Hastings as well as a little bit of their plans once the place is opened up to the public here soon. Take a look right here.

It has been a little while since we’ve caught up with Ben Lewis, so when we saw he dialed in his bike before making a trip over to the U.S. to film for the Etnies “Chapters” DVD, we figured it would be the perfect time to take a closer look at his Fit Bike Co. Benny L V2 setup decked out with Fit and Animal Bikes parts and to find out what he has cooking with his sponsors and plans for the year now that 2016 is under way! Ready? Let’s take a closer look at this unit!

A while back, we caught news that Source BMX Shop was looking at the Victorian baths as a possible location for their new shop and a one of a kid skatepark in the U.K. Well, a lot has happened since then! They got all the approvals, secured the funding and have been going to work non-stop to get the place up and running. They have announced that the grand opening will be February 13th, 2016 and we’re sure it’s going to be one hell of a celebration! Source BMX have released a number of preview photos and all the information over on their website for you to get a look at it — SOURCE PARK GRAND OPENING INFORMATION. We cannot wait to see some footage start popping up from the sessions that will be going down there soon..
