Epic. Few BMX videos are as aspirational or as well travelled as this one – most videos skimp by on petrol expenses, Subway footlongs and over-occupied AirBnB last-minute bookings. Not Make It Happen. Greg Illingworth pulled out ALL the stops on this video project – the resulting DVD was an instant classic, the accompanying book a true gem, and the full package a proper representation of global travel with bikes and like-minded riders forging lifetime friendships. And now here it is, on Greg’s Youtube channel. Enjoy again.
“Over 14 months I travelled the globe with a hand picked group of the world’s best BMX riders, cinematrographer Will Evans & photographer George Marshall. We all shared one simple idea – explore, ride, document” – Greg
