Derek Sipkoi has always been a bit of a mystery to me, so it’s cool to see something like this come out so I can see who he really is. I’ve noticed that lately he’s been trying really hard to push Dkoi bikes, and the new frames look pretty good. I’m a big fan of rider owned companies, and it’s good to see a dude really taking things into his own hands.
Plus, he’s got some of the best whips I’ve ever seen one one of the best backyard setups ever.
Tyler Brown shows you what he’s got on his track. Just because you’re TO doesn’t mean you can’t shred!
This edit comes from the good people over at Factory47. That should be enough of a description to make you press play. Factory47 isn’t just some kid at the local trick with a cheap video camera filming a shaky edit of mediocre riding. Their crew is the real day and they put out some of the best content I’ve posted on Next Level.
With that being said, I’m sure they’ve worked long and hard to cook up this awesome Corey Frieswyk edit. He’s worked his way up from rural Australia to rise to the top of the Australian national scene. He’s chasing his dreams of competing in the 2016 Olympic games, and if he keeps up the dedication I’m sure he can do it.
I can’t say enough positive things about this edit. The filming and riding are both on point!
Shout out to Corey’s sponsors: Rival Racing, Unit Clothing and BMX Australia
Brandon Elmore shows you what he’s got on his home turf. I don’t think anyone can ride DeSoto like him. You can’t really tell from how Brandon rides it, but if you’ve ever ridden DeSoto you know that their rhythm isn’t easy to ride. It’s tight and every roller is a different height. These lines aren’t easy.

After about 45 seconds of artsy clips, you finally get to the real riding. It doesn’t disappoint though! Amelia Walsh kill it in New Zealand at the Te Awamutu track for Yess! Trent Jones did a nice job putting this one together too. The filming is on point and the soundtrack goes well with the riding. It doesn’t happen very often when I say that about an edit.

Nic Long, Corben Sharrah, & Brooke Crain of Haro BMX race team do some laps for the Deft camera. You’ve got to check out Nic’s pedal manual at 57 seconds!
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a Freestyle Friday, but it’s back and better than ever with this amazing United video. Luke Peeters and the rest of the Gorge Road trails locals flow effortlessly through some of the most dialed dirt jumps ever built. If this doesn’t get you stoked to go outside and ride your bike this weekend, there’s something wrong.
Despite using one of the most popular songs for racing edits, Trent Jones comes through with some fire on this one to start off my morning. The clip at 1:43 is about as dialed as it gets. He shows you what it looks like to be 100% in control!
By the way, Trent just made a facebook page to share his riding with y’all. Go ahead and give it a like! facebook.com/Tjones279

If this is just a preview of a bigger Brandon Cato edit that’s going to drop later, I can’t wait to see the rest. Shout out to my friends over at West Side BMX for the film work.
All I have to say to this is “LOL.”
