There was a lot of hype for our Barcelona trip video (Was meant to be called the Birth of Barcelona in honor of the legendary Death of Barcelona video from Grime / Zontrac) back when we took this trip in 2016. The question everybody has been dying to have answered: what happened to the video? To keep it brief, the trip organizer and filmer decided to hold on to the project and footage because it “wouldn’t be worth putting out”. Luckily though, I managed to take a lot of second angles and b roll from my camera along with Jackson being kind enough to lend me some of his footage. Thus, the Raw edit was born! This at least lets us share some of the fun times and cool tricks that went down during our 2016 trip (tons of more tricks happened though that aren’t included in this edit). To give some context for myself: this was my first time on a bike since my El Toro accident. My foot was nowhere near ready to ride but we booked the trip before that accident happened, so I went anyways. So my skills weren’t very sharp and my foot was delicate whenever i landed on it. Either way though, I still had a blast with these dudes and I reeeaally hope I can go back soon. Enjoy!
Pedro was kind enough to shoot over the photos Duarte shot while we were out in Barcelona a couple years ago. Still waiting for that footage to drop. 😦 Great photos by Duarte though! Makes me wanna go back.
Wolf Drawn just dropped the friends section for Stay Strapped. A huge variety of different killers featured in this one, if you haven’t seen it yet, definitely check it out. Songs were on point too and gave the section a cool vibe. Snag a copy of Stay Strapped for $5 here!
Phil with Locked Cog just threw up some really nice portrait shots of Antonyo’s current setup. I’ve always been a fan of the way that bike looks with all the rust and rawness. Check out the rest of the shots here!
Ratpack’s Lucas Brockelmann is one of the best filmers involved with fixed gear. He’s been busy in Northern and Southern California stacking clips of everybody for a Ratpack 2K14 edit, and by the looks of it, it should be epic. New camera looking great. So much energy, can’t wait! (Rhyme not intended)
