Original comment: Currently injured, I have to put the bike aside for some time , but here is a trick I`ve been working on for the longest time.

It might look easy but the complexity of this trick is quasi unfathomable.This was shot on the trip to Barcelona for the BArcelona Extreme competition jammin`with Jason PLourde, James McGraw and Effraim Catlow, I love the city for what it gave me!!! What a gift! Thank you Barcelona! SweetSPOT PEDALS ! MICROPHONE PEGS!! Happy Happy!!!!! #bmxlife
Original comment: During two months, i traveled with my bike and my camera between Paris, Saint Mandrier sur Mer, Montpellier, Bordeaux, Royan and Barcelone. The result of these trips is this mixtape called "Mezzee". It sounds as your greed pushes you to test loads of tasty dishes in the same time. It includes good times and riding skills from Manu Massabova, Matthieu Bonnecuelle, Takumi Isogai, Quentin Pelorson, Inigo Arroyo, Alexis Desolneux, Shinichi Kiba, Alex Jumelin, Thomas Noyer, Jeremy Brosset, Joris Bretagnolles, Mike Plas, Gilles Van de Sompel, Alberto Moya and many more !
