The Story of Che from Nigeria
« on: July 09, 2018, 09:25:41 PM »

This is a fantastic little short film about a bike project for a flatlander from Nigeria. You may have seen videos of Che riding his dusty flatland spot. Thanks to Mark Locke and all the supporter for getting Che a rad bike. Here is the story that started in 2016:

"Che was riding this crappy old midschool bike but showed potential and deserved something better, so we pooled efforts and with the help of StMartin in France and putting money in ourselves (plus other riders from UK and USA chipping in for shipping and customs costs) we managed to get him a brand new modern flatland ride.

The story coulda kinda ended there, but in the year that followed (this is the amazing part) Che dedicated his life to riding flat, and went from being able to do not much at all to starting to get really good, and on dirt! Flat on dirt.... Woah." - Mark Locke
