GetaBMX’s Milan Recknagel sure did do his fair share of getting around last year, as this 2015 highlights edit more than proves! Definitely not a bad way to get the week started, and it’s also a pretty good source of inspiration for laying out some solid traveling plans for 2016.
If you watched GetaBMX’s “So Big 3” all the way through then you no doubt already saw the minute of Tom Justice killing Monkey Bumps that capped off the video. It was a great way to end things but you can also watch it on its own now because Milan decided to upload it by itself. It’s definitely worth another few watches even if you’ve already seen it!
Usually when I see that an edit is 20 minutes long, I think to myself that there’s no way I’m going to make it the whole way through. Not only did I make it through all 21 minutes and 37 seconds of this third release in GetaBMX’s “So Big” series, I actually went back and watched a lot of it over again. I absolutely loved how the beginning captured those feelings of uncertainty that we all go through in the winter as we’re changing existing lines or building new ones, and the feelings excitement and trepidation of testing them out…
Prior to Can You Dig It I had no idea who Milan Recknagel was. Over the last few years I’ve gotten to know Milan via chatting back and forth online and he’s grown to be someone who I not only have a lot of respect for, but also someone who I love to watch ride. Milan has his own site that he runs called GetaBMX, and he’s always posting cool content from the trips he goes on. Seeing that stuff is cool and all but the real treat is watching him ride the spot he calls home, Monkey Bumps!
This new one from Pedro Linarejos came with a disclaimer that it’s not an edit. If it’s not an edit, I don’t know what it is. What I do know is that it’s two and half minutes of him cruising Monkey Bumps and Bole Hills. I’ll let you decide what you want to call that.
Monkey Bumps got some heavy mods over the winter, and after months of hard work Milan Recknagel is finally enjoying the fruits of his labor. Here are three quick POV runs through some of the lines to tide us over until he makes a proper edit (hint hint Milan). Spotted on GetaBMX.
RTG13 and Friends is the closing section from So Big 2, and it closes it out proper!
I’ve been waiting for this one from our friends at GetaBMX and today is a perfect day for it. Every year they put out an EP length all trails video, and So Big II is their offering to wrap up this year. Perfect viewing material for a rainy day here on the East Coast!
Milan Recknagel is the man behind GetaBMX and like Chris Jenner he also filmed his part for So Big 2 at Monkey Bumps.
Now this is a good start to the morning! Chris Jenner filmed his part for So Big 2 in one afternoon at Monkey Bumps. That name still cracks me up!
