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.
It now been over a year since myself, Penrose, Antonyo, Jackson, Evan, Zane, Nelson, Pedro, and Duarte all met up in Barcelona for an FGFS trip last year. While we’ve still barely seen any of the footage from it, I’ve been sitting on these pictures and decided to drop them. Hopefully we can see the trip edit soon. Some of the footage appeared in Good Times, but thats about it. Click below for the full set.
Pedro recently was in an accident and had to get surgery on his broken collarbone. Lucky for us, he decided to drop all of his footage! Pedro finesses with pegs on these amazing BCN and Portugal spots. Pedro has been making waves and really pushing himself lately and this edit really shows all his progression. Fucking fire my dude, don’t miss this one!
In between filming clips and getting wrecked, we took some time out of our busy schedule in Barcelona to film this fun group game of B.I.K.E. featuring Nelson Bell, Jackson Bradshaw, Pedro Oliveira, Michael Penrose, Evan Service, and Antonyo Wothe. We filmed two of these that day, so watch out for the rematch coming soon!
Pedro and Duarte from Portugal met up with us when we went to Barcelona in January earlier this year and really helped us out with finding spots and talking to locals. The dude is awesome and his passion for FGFS gets me stoked to ride. The dude is always hungry for clips, and seeing him get a custom frame from Nem Pro is well deserved. Be on the lookout for his clips when the Barcelona clips come out. But for now, I took some shots of him and his bike during the golden hour. Even though it’s a 24″, the frame geometry makes it ride like a 26″ build. It looks cool too, more photos after the jump!
While we were out in Barcelona I had to snag some some photos of Evan’s bike cause of how sick it looked. The unintentional cracking on the paint job is actually one of the coolest paint jobs I’ve seen in a while.
