We all know that feeling of hearing a song from a video and being able to play the clips back in your head. Whenever I hear this Gil Scott Heron song I think of Chase D’s buttery three to manual 180 on that little parking lot bank, Sexton’s feeble bar on that impossible setup and Garrett’s video game line that ends with him crashing into the camera. Those clips are forever etched into this song. The whole squad came through sooo heavy for this one, firmly announcing Cinema‘s presence in BMX. Hard to believe its [only] been three years since this came out.
Check out this new instalment of the Jerry’s series filmed and edited by Aaron Smith. Some awesome riding in this featuring riding from Darryl Tocco, Lee Hopkins, Sean Sexton, Matty Aquizap, James Steele, Brian Hunt, Jake Patruchik, Webster Jake, Josh Lane, Rob Bottomly, Matt “Jerry” Busby, Aaron Smith, Jay Roe and Trevor Ashworth.
Odyssey just posted a quick interview with Sean Sexton about his recent broken wrist injury. The crash sounds pretty hard. Read the full thing here and follow the man @sean_sexton.
“Then second try I clipped my back wheel and just got sent to my right side, and my arm took the brunt of it. It looked like it was a crinkled can [laughter]. Not too horrible, but it definitely looked broken, you know?”
Sean (unfortunately) recently took one to the wrist, so we decided to hit him up about it. Get well soon bud!
Walter: So, Sean, you’ve gone and hurt yourself. What the hell happened?
Sean: I broke the radius bone and fractured a couple of the little bones in my wrist, like in the joint. So I had to get surgery a week later, and I have a plate and a few screws.
What were you doing?
I was in, I believe, St. Petersburg, Florida, but I could be wrong. Somewhere in that area. I was trying to 180 a rail hop that had kind of a little gap before it and about a seven-foot drop on the other side. First try went good, just kinda hopped a little too high and had to bail the 180. Then second try I clipped my back wheel and just got sent to my right side, and my arm took the brunt of it. It looked like it was a crinkled can [laughter]. Not too horrible, but it definitely looked broken, you know?
That actually sounds pretty horrible. So, how long are you gonna be out for?
Doctor said 6-8 weeks. I have an appointment tomorrow to get an evaluation, take a few X-rays and whatnot. I’ll know more after that.
That’s not too bad I guess in the grand scheme of things.
Nah; I hope that’s all it is.
So, what do the next 6-8 weeks have in store for you?
Just trying to get back to 100%, trying to not sit around too much. Gonna try to get around as much as possible, which has been easier the last couple of days because I’m not experiencing as much pain as before. But just trying to get back to where I can ride. Hopefully this doesn’t set me back too bad. Trying not to have idle hands for too long, you know? I actually couldn’t play video games at all because of the way my thumb works right now, with holding on to the controller, but I’ve kinda gotten used to it. Yeah, playing Xbox, watching every TV series that’s available right now [laughter], I’ve got a lot of good shows that are running current right now that I get to watch. Having friends come visit, getting out of the house, maybe grabbing a coffee or something like that. But yeah, a lot of sitting around. There’s not much you can do when you get hurt, you know? It just kinda forces you to sit in your house and be bored.
Cool. Well, we look forward to your return to the bike riding community.

In case you missed it when it first dropped, here’s a re-up of the Odyssey / Empire Viva La Revolucion video featuring Aaron Ross, Tom Dugan, Sean Sexton and Tom Smith.
Damn that’s a bummer. Sean Sexton posted the above picture stating that he went down hard today while on the current Kink Florida trip and broke his wrist. Follow @sean_sexton and send him some love. I’m sure he’ll be back shredding in no time!
We announced you earlier today that Sean Sexton was moving on from Cinema and that he will be running a full line up of Odyssey parts from now on. Well they just posted the above bike check to show you Sean’s new whip and threw a bunch of dope clips in the mix! Freecoaster prototype coming soon…
Official word from Will Stroud, Cinema Team Manager and Filmer: “Losing team riders is never easy, especially when it’s a guy like Sean Sexton. Sean was one of the OG Cinema team riders when the team formed in 2010 and has kept us laughing and smiling on every trip since then. His powerhouse riding style combined with his witty jokes makes him really fun to travel with and he will be missed by the Cinema crew. Sean was offered a nice opportunity to ride all Odyssey parts, which means he will no longer be running Cinema Wheels. Best of luck to Sean and Odyssey on their future endeavors.”
