If you haven’t had a chance to see the hard copy of the Make It Happen book, it is now online for you to eyeball (right above this text).

About Make It Happen:
‘Make It Happen’ is a global BMX project by rider Greg Illingworth, filmer Will Evans and photographer George Marshall. Over 14 months Greg travelled to South Africa, China and Argentina with some of the world’s best riders: Gary Young, Tammy Mccarley, Brian Kachinsky, Ed Zunda, Josh Harrington, Kevin Kalkoff, Paul Ryan, Ben Hennon, Matt Priest, Matthias Dandois and Maxime Charveron. They all shared one simple idea – explore, ride, document.

The Make It Happen book is a one off high quality publication that documents the entire project and features in depth biographic interviews with Brian Kachinsky, Greg Illingworth and Tammy Mccarley.

The full video will be released online on Thursday, August 14th.

Steadfast- Guy French! from FBM BMX on Vimeo.

Jackson Allen Filmed this in Santa Cruz, of his buddy- Guy French, it’s Awesome! Here is what Jackson had to say about it-

“Guy French featuring a quarter pipe clip from Murph

Song: Acid King- Silent Circle

Music is better loud

Guy rides a Steadfast

Trails aren’t for pussies

Guy works for a great bike shop but even they couldn’t stand how much he played Vagabond Ritual and Thousand Yard Stare during his shift.

Guy is 21. FBM is 21.

Guy goes higher than anyone at the trails. We measured with a laser.”

Hey guys, I just got back from my trip over to the UK. The month went so quick, rode in Nass festival and also Bmx Cologne in Germany. Bummer but I hurt my knee in Germany which I’ve been sessioning physio a lot since I’ve been back to get strength in it and is already starting to feel better and better. Stoked! Apart from that just having a goodtime and can’t wait to finish filming for a webvid I have going on. I’ll keep you guys posted.

Ronnie and Mike at Mongoose Jam 2014

Posted by: Ronnie and Mike at Mongoose Jam 2014 Demolition
August 11th, 2014

Ronnie and Mike are out at Woodward East this year holding it down for Demolition Parts at the Mongoose Jam 2014. Ronnie practically lives at Woodward and it shows in Ride’s edits from the comp, they got Ronnie doing ridiculous transfers and lines that no one else is even looking at. Mike Gray on the other hand keeps every one guessing with technical street combos and bangers that most riders have never seen in videos let alone in person! Here are a couple of photos of the guys that Rob Dolecki shot for Ride during the comp. Be sure to check out both of these photos big after the jump and then click on this LINK to check out more of Ride’s coverage from the Mongoose Jam 2014.
