Queensland Female Freestyle BMX

Although there aren’t a ton of girls out there riding, this video from the Gold Coast Compound contest gives us a good look that they’re throwing down some real good riding! Check out what Peta Shepherd and Natalya Diehm had to show for the judges!

This is raw footage of Peta Shepherd and Natalya Diehm, competing at the G.C. Compound’s Women’s Open freestyle B.M.X Competition on the 27th of April 2014. I wasn’t going to put this up because the quality of the footage captured is not great, however it does somewhat give a snapshot of the atmosphere and level of riding during the event.

Profile Racing – Matt Coplon – The Switch Is Down

Oh hell yeah! You don’t even know how stoked I was to wake up to an email from Matt Coplon with his new Profile Racing edit inside! Anyone who has met Matt knows that he’s one of the hardest working guys in BMX and hands down one of the nicest guys out there. What’s even better? He absolutely crushes it on a bike too! Some how between his role as team manager, handling sales, bouncing around on trips with the team and hitting events, he was able to stack all these clips for this new edit! Take a look because it’s one you don’t want to skip!

It’s been 13 years that I’ve had the honor of being TM for Profile’s freestyle team.
Over the past four months, between attending weekend events.
In between getting behind the lens to shoot pics, to film our riders.
In the down time after I’ve handled the things that make my job incredibly enjoyable, I set up the tri-pod or used my camera bag as prop (for the most part), and captured some jibs.
Some while on the road with the crew, others after work or on our coveted sundays of all day sessioning in Tampa.
Nothing ground breaking…just having fun pedaling.
Enjoy, and thanks for supporting Profile Racing over the years.
Subsequent filming by Grant Castelluzzo, Steve Caro, David Gibson, Kent Pearson, Scott Ehlert and Zachery Rogers.
Song: “Stepping softly into” by “Universal Order of Armageddon.”
I actually planned on using this song for a part 13 years ago, thought it appropriate. Finally.

Brad McNicol in Valencia

Check out this brand new video of Brad McNicol riding street and the park in Valenica! Brad’s riding never disappoints and, other than the rough ending, everything is dialed! Take a peek!

So psyched to bring you this today. Premium UK’s Brad McNicol hit up Valencia recently with our man Nick Armstrong. It looks like Brad had the whole place to himself here! Plenty of amazing, hassle free street spots along with some clean park riding too. Keep an eye out for Premium UK on this year’s RTG as they try to defend their title.” – Ride UK

Head over to The Merged to get the low down on the Ikonix FS1 bike that BOB HARO is producing. Did you have to take a second look after reading that last bit?
