I’ve just been slapped by a French kid!

Soooooooo, yeah. What just happened? Who is this kid?!?!?!?!?!

The name Anthony Perrin does not ring a bell to me, but then again I don’t live in France nor do I live on the internet watching every kids video. This edit is to celebrate Anthony’s addition the French Vans pro team (congrats). I don’t really care about that, but I do care about that first clip and this edit in general. Kid’s good.

Maybe this WAS all a dream??

Thanks to Julien Scheubel for tweeting this at us.

Q&A: Figuré BMX Magazine

A few weeks ago, I was emailed a teaser for a new free French magazine called Figuré BMX Mag. It was labeled “Teaser 1” which led me to believe there were more to follow. I didn’t post any, hoping I’d be able to clump them all together in a nice package with a Q&A.

Voilà!!! (thats French for “ta-da” more or less)

I reached out to Fabien with a few questions. Click below for that.

Soulardouzant

I don’t know much about this event, but Julien Roubinet sent over some rad photos from Soulardouzant in Paris. It looks like there was a great turnout for the jam and Julien’s photos do a great job of capturing the riding as well as the crowd and everyone who was there to check it out. Keep reading for some more photos and you can check out some more shots here.

*Edit, Hadrien Picard sent over a bunch of info about the jam, that was actually for Soul BMX Mag’s 12 year anniversary!

French Media Apprentice

Soul BMX worked with Nike on a Media Apprentice program and just announced the winner. Pierre Blondel got the first place spot with a great super 8 film that was apparently put together with no editing!

Le Megot Edit

Le Megot sent over a super fun edit of a bunch of riders cruising around a city in Belgium that doesn’t allow cars. The basically go from the top of the city to the bottom and document their ride. There’s a good mix of tricks and cruising and it definitely makes me want to go ride in a city with my friends!
