Barry & Caroline: A Day in the Life

March 21, 2016 by · Comments Off 

Barry Nobles and Caroline Buchanan Edit

ODI is out today (well yesterday, actually), with a “Day In The Life” edit featuring Barry and Caroline. The four-minute show makes good on its promise, and gives us a quickfire run through a typical day of our favorite action couple.

The video was shot and edited by BMX dirt/freestyle star Ryan Guettler, and we have to give Ryan the big props for a job well done. The full shoot was, in fact, over one day, and Barry tells us they ran out of time for this one, and hinted that a part II might be in the works.



We also asked Barry to list-out the locations featured in the edit. Here’s what he said:

-My house
-My 110 track behind my neighborhood
-FOD Trails
-Perris (Grandprix BMX) track

Good stuff, all around! We hope there are more in the series coming down the pike.

Trivia: Their French Bulldog’s name is “Jax.”

BMX News Video Pitstop: Crupi

As part of our coverage of the 2016 USA BMX Winter Nationals, BMX News Team members Tanner Yeager and Chase Bradshaw stop in to the Factory Crupi pit to check out what’s happening under the tent, and to hear all about their successful “Green Team” Sponsorship Program.

Crupi team manager Gary Whittington gives us some of the details on the 2016 Crupi product line, and a good-bit on Green Team–one of the more successful squads is down in Texas, where the Whittingtons used to call home before moving to So. Cal. recently.

As the 2016 racing season hits the power band, lots of new teams are forming, and we thought it would be a great opportunity for your startup team to learn more about the Green Team. Crupi owner, Greg Swingrover calls the program the “Fastrak to Factory.” It’s designed to be the way on-the-rise talent gets discovered.

2015 Pan-American Trip – Niek Kimmann

November 24, 2015 by · Comments Off 

niekselfie

Niek Kimmann has quickly made himself one of the top names in BMX, at only 19 years old. After winning the 2014 Junior World title in his home country, the Dutch flyer backed up his title with a 2015 Elite World Championship. Since the Worlds, the young rookie has been nothing but consistent, finding himself on the podium at nearly every race he enters.

In this “self filmed” video, Niek takes us behind the curtain, into the day to day life of the Dutch National Team. The “edit” goes in Chronological order, following the World Champion from the podium in Argentina, to a Time Trial Win at Rock Hill, all the way to testing (and crashing) at the Olympic Test Event in Rio. The race action alone would make this a worthy video, but the behind the scenes sight-seeing, kart racing, and every day life makes it all the better.

2015 Pan-American Trip – Niek Kimmann

Traveling the World is a blast all in itself, but pairing that with your best riding friends, and doing well in the highest level of the sport is amazing. Thank you to Niek for taking us along for the ride, and keep up the good work on and off the track.

Mathijs Verhoeven Edit

A very-solid nine-minute edit from Belgian video shop “Medialism,” (director and editor Kris Melis) featuring the 2015 European Junior Men’s Champion, Mathijs Verhoeven. Before the big lap in Erp (NED), we see some great riding sessions at BMX 2000 in Dessel (BEL) and Luyksgestel (NED), as well as some of Mathijs’ training leading up to the championships on July 10-12.

Later in July, at the 2015 UCI BMX World Championships, Mathijs made his way through the qualifiers, 1/8s and 1/4s. In the semi, he had gate 8 (just like the final at the UEC), and got out clean. By turn one, he was in fourth, but spun his back wheel on the exit (in the midst of a downpour), and that was the ballgame.

Yess BMX: The Families

June 2, 2015 by · Comments Off 

Kohl Piluso at the 2015 USA BMX Seaside Nationals

BMX Racing is one of the foremost family sports in the spectrum. It provides a rare opportunity for mom, dad, sisters and brothers to come out to the track and cheer-on their rider–or jump into the mix and race as well–all on the same field of play, at the same time. No other sport provides that opportunity.

In this edit, Yess BMX brings us under their tent at the recent USA BMX Seaside Nationals in Ventura, CA to give us a real-deal look at the families that make up their Factory Team.

It’s an awesome inside look at how the families behind the household-name stars on the Yess BMX roster view the sport, and approach their respecive battles on raceday.

In the description, Yess captioned the video by saying:

The Parents who give unconditional support and are the biggest sponsor any athlete on the planet could ever have. We need to give thanks to those who are behind the scenes who make it happen for the future (and present) stars.

There’s no doubt that Yess has brought-together a group of families that are both passionate about the sport, and hell-bent on winning, at every outing. A great combo, from where we’re sitting.
