Alexis is doing a lot of work behind the scenes at Heresy and we don't get to see him in front of the camera that often. The footage for this edit was originally filmed for the friends-section of a skateboard DVD but wasn't used in the end. Too bad for the skateboard guys, good for us! ;-) Check it out!
'In December 2014, I got an email from George (Manos) asking me if I would like to send a few clips to the skateboarding group known as BA.KU. (Barrier Kult) as they offered to feature some clips of H E R E S Y riders in the friends section of their upcoming DVD. Being in contact for some time and having mutual respect for what we both do, some of us filmed a few moves in 2015 and sent the material. I had been willing to experiment with some lighting for some time and thought this was the chance to do something I had not done before with video. It was not about capturing rare tricks but just playing with lighting versus obscurity and spending a few hours one night by myself in a remote 2500 square meters warehouse on top of a hill, switching all lights off except for a halo. In the end, this footage didn't make it into the BA.KU. DVD so here it is. HALO.'
Everyone was wondering with whom Alex might have teamed up for his new signature frame project. Now Alex revealed his little secret:
'Here is the "humble" , my new signature frame by @coastcycles. Coastcycles is more than a bmx company. Coast Is a bike label with a strong knowledge in the bike industry. Quality, strong and light. We worked really hard with the team in Singapore to have this 1st prototype ready for the new contest season. I'll be in SG next week to test it and film an edit.'
We're looking forward to see the new frame in action. Stay tuned! The photos are from Alex' Instagram.

Dominik won the Fight the Winter contest in Germany for the 3rd time in a row. Congratulations! The format was best out of 2 runs and the whole contest was very well organized just like in the previous years. Dominik had the best first run so after the first round it was already clear that it would be quite hard to beat him. Thanks to Erik Hogers you can already watch many runs on Youtube and see for yourself. Just click the names below.
Nao is an artist on and off the bike. His world is truly flat like the name of the edit suggests. If he is not riding then he’s drawing and painting. Flat surfaces are his friend. This stylish new edit by yukipkoproject does him justice. Great filming and editing! Enjoy!
Steven Lapsley is getting busy organizing the upcoming summer contest season. The Battle At The Border is schedule for mid August. Still plenty of time to plan your trip. It's going to be part of a big car show in the Niagara Convention Center in Buffalo, NY. You can find a few more details here: Battle At the Border.
Look at those two trouble makers having a great time! Kevin Nikulski and Dustyn Alt from Germany - that's true bromance right there and a whole lot of tricks. Dustyn must have spent quite some time behind the computer editing it besides filming and riding. The results is worth all the effort. Enjoy!
