You can say a lot of things about the year 2020, many of them negative.
However, there’s one thing you can’t complain about and that is the state of video parts in BMX.
Just a week or two into when things started kicking off pandemic-wise in North America, S&M Bikes dropped S&M Wins.
The ultimate feel good BMX video with everything from Hoder’s car wash intro, Hucker’s insanity, Kareem’s ender and the whole team going off….there was something for everyone.
Perhaps one of the most emblematic images of the time was the sequence with a housebound resident giving new S&M rider Chris Childs the finger as he pedals bye. It sort of foretells how the balance how the rest of the year is going to go.
In September, things really went off.
That’s when Dennis Enarson & VANS dropped Right Here.
I don’t know what else to say that hasn’t been said already but I will repeat at least one thing: this video is going to be talked about for a long time. This is one for the ages.
This video sets a new bar for video parts and holds up (and probably surpasses) all the other iconic video parts you can compare it against.
Heck, go watch again. I’ll wait.
But BMX wasn’t yet done for the year when it came to adding jaw-dropping parts.
Coming in fast and loose to close out the year, Corey Walsh went full speed into his part End of the World.
If you want to get your adrenaline up and make yourself pedal as fast as humanly possible at a gap or obstacle this is the video for you.
What a way to cap of the year.
if you haven’t already, crack open a cold one and give these vids another watch.
It’s time to get psyched up for a new year.
