Villa Road’s highly anticipated 2017 wrap-up video is here, and man it’s a doozy! On top of the expected clips from Woodyard, there’s also footage from Leatherhead and the crew’s trip to New Zealand. For a most radical viewing experience, grab yourself a beer, settle in on the couch and watch this on your TV if you can.
S&M ‘s Joe Simpson is one of those dudes who somehow seems to fly under the radar, but then an edit like this drops and reminds you that the dude seriously kills it. I highly doubt there’s anyone else who looks as good flowing through a line not doing any tricks, yet can fire out a mid-line decade on a whim.
For the fourth time riders from all over Australia came together to remember the legendary Dane Searls. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been four years. Dane had such a lasting impact on BMX that it seems like just yesterday that we were all still in awe over Giant’s of Dirt. Even with the wind not 100% cooperating at this year’s jam, everyone still had a blast celebrating the life and legacy of one of the baddest dudes to ever pick up a bike.
I have a few minutes before I need to hit the road so why not sneak in one more post. New Zealand’s Joe Simpson has found himself a spot on Fox and he teamed up with Joel McDowell and Cameron Stewart to put together a proper welcome edit. He definitely surprised me with a few of the tricks in here!
S&M’s recently Joe Simpson put himself together a fresh new C.C.R. build, and they were so kind to put together the above bike check since most of us aren’t going to have the chance to see it ripping around New Zealand in person. Dude has one serious cable holding apparatus on that rig! Want to see what his new bike is in for? Then go ahead and hit the jump button to revisit his S&M edit from last year.
You could watch this without knowing that Joe rode for S&M and you would either assume that he did or think that he should. Joe’s riding and this edit just scream S&M. He’s been riding for the shield in New Zealand for a good year an a half now but a few setbacks have delayed an official edit until now. It was definitely worth the wait though! Usually I skip through park stuff but I actually watched it in here because Joe was killing it. I’d suggest doing the same but of course feel free to skip to 01:18 to…
