Recent Bristol UNI goer Nic James gets stuff done in this awesome day edit for Doomsday Clothing Co. Incredibly versatile! Love seeing Nic ride! #CrucialGang
This edit is sweet! Makes me extremely jealous of the weather that's for sure, Damo Wilkinson and crew go in for this web-edit by Inch Thomson! Looks like it was a sweet trip to California #CrucialGang
I tell you what, if there was such an award for BMX scene to produce the most web-edits in a matter of weeks then it would definitely be you lot who feature in each of these 5 web edits all from the South of Wales...
We got Alastair Mason, Ryan Williams and Tom Jenkins behind the lens, along with a dope crew that features the awesome Jordan Godwin.
Its pretty wet outside while i write this so i guess not much riding will happen tonight so fill your boots with these local edits and get pumped on riding BMX hopefully this weekend!
As some of you should remember a couple of weeks ago CrucialBMX riders Michael Jordan and Cam Hardy were out in Malaga with a few of their buddies hitting the dope street spots and carving up the new Ruben skatepark. The trip looked amazing, i was gutted that i didn't get to go along but i was there in late 2013 so i know how good it is. It looks like the whole crew really stepped it up a level when riding, they came back with loads of great footage and a spanish BMX blogger managed to get some great snaps.
Check out the edit below that was put together by Theo Dorman - you know this looks like a great time:
To go along with that a spanish BMX blog (All photographs by Yoni Cadenas) managed to get a few shots of the boys, check out the blog FisureBMX by clicking here, or check out our favourite photographs below:
CrucialBMX shredder Dan Shepherd recently recorded this quick video with the Southwest BMX lads. They didn't have long, less than an hour to be exact but this is what he was able to lay down!
From SWBMX - "The weather was pretty grim so me and a few others decided to take a trip to Motion Ramp Park in Bristol and met Dan Shepherd there and managed to clock this little edit with him, just bought a new camera so I’m still getting the grips of it! but Dan shut it down, this edit was filmed in under a hour. enjoy.
We took a trip with a few of our lads to 4Down and Seventies Distribution Skateparks! Big thanks to both suppliers for accommodating us for the day. We had an awesome time and can't wait to come back again soon.
Featuring our team:

As we all know, Crucial rider Bob Manchester is quite the character. This video shows a day in the life captured by Mike King from FFWD BMX. A good watch for a rainy Saturday!
I hope Bob has a sick time in the USA, he left the UK yesterday for a month in the sun. Extremely jealous!
We all know that i like a good local video here at Crucial.
There is just something about them that i enjoy, maybe because only 10 years ago i was that kid. Taking my parents video camera without them knowing to film me and my pals at our poorly lit local park hoping that some horrible chav wouldn't come along and take it off us. Don't get me wrong, professional videos of our big name favorite riders are awesome and gets me pumped for riding but there is just something about using the resources that you have around you. We all know that the likes of most pro-riders are taken to hot locations for a good period of time and all they have to concentrate on is getting clips, its nothing like that when you're a young one....
Here are some video's that i've been sent or come across already this year!
Macauley Jenkins is first up, a good friend of the shop and local to Bristol. This video dropped the end of last month but mostly features clips of him as he progressed with riding last year. I think its safe to say that from the clips at the beginning to the clips at the end a massive progression has happened. Keep it up pal!
Shout out to my South Wales CREW! Jordan Godwin and his pals go in at their local car-park due to the wettest winter EVER. This video is fun and shows that BMX is something you don't take serious. Hopefully they keep these rolling, maybe a Crucial feature wouldn't go a miss...
Dom Jones and the Weston BMX gang hit up motion for this lighthearted simple video of them all having a good time at our local Motion Skatepark!
We like Rob here at the shop, he's down to earth and loves BMX for all the right reasons.
During 2013 he managed to travel around gathering up clips at all his favorite spots. Last week he dropped an awesome 2 minute edit, its simply editing to a good song and features plenty of peg action.
Definitely give this a watch!
