DW: Darren, how is Crankworx going for you this year so far? DB: It?s been pretty good, the scene here is sweet, there was some rain earlier in the week so the trails are super good right now. Everybody has been having fun [...]

Michal Prokop: TWELVE 4 & 5

Catch up time with Michal Prokop. Twelve months, twelve short documentaries on a long way to success. Trainings. Races. Travelling. Life. This is TWELVE – a new project of the pro mountain biker and BMXer Michal Prokop. Rob Trnka’s camera takes the past month of Michal, just as he has actually spent it. Without any adornments and planning. It doesn’t aim to celebrate the leading actor; it wants to capture by its sincereness. TWELVE doesn’t create dramatic situations, but it [...]

Michal Prokop: TWELVE

Twelve months, twelve short documentaries on a long way to success. Trainings. Races. Travelling. Life. This is TWELVE – a new project of the mountain biker and BMXer Michal Prokop. Not only by its coarse visual interpretation TWELVE picks up the threads of michal.prokop09 calendar, however it uses a wider potential of video technologies. Rob Trnka’s camera takes the past month of Michal Prokop, just as he has actually spent it. Without any adornments and planning. It doesn’t aim to [...]

Neko Mulally (Audio Interview)

Was BMX and MTB invented in Holland?

Seems quite a few folk, have been flapping, all over the world about the true origins of anything “off road” on a bicycle which can point to the origins of the sports of BMX and MTB. Our good friend and old drinking buddy Bart De Jong over at FatBmx has the proof! I think he has maybe hit the nail on the head with this little Dutch Classic. Decide what you want…but most of the wheels look bigger than 20 [...]
