Power Hour: Drew Bezanson 98

Five-and-a-half years ago, we caught up with Drew for one hour of insanity on the mini ramp at Cloud 9. While Drew had a shorter sponsor list and a less-impressive resume, he delivered in a big way here and this video really put him on the map. Years later, every single clip in this holds strong. Drew is undoubtedly one of the most progressive riders in the history of BMX and, based on the moves he was throwing down this long ago, no one should be surprised. - Kyle Carlson / 2015


Drew pretty much shuts down the Cloud 9 mini at Woodward in one hour.

no way someone found the song? thats rad I've been wondering where to find that song for a while. FUCK THE LAKERS IM A MOTHERFUCKING GRIZZLIES FAN. Not trying to be a hater but the footage would be tight if the average BMX filmers started actully trying to pay attention to the subject instead of just pointing a fisheye in the general area of the riding. Ok maybe a little bit of hating. But just a thought. Not saying there isnt good filming in BMX, actully quite the contrary, I think BMX is one of the most photogenic sports there is. I would just like to see more riding as good as this justified by the videography. And this video is actully fucking rad, I'm just saying in general I believe BMX film making is behind in many ways. First off lets get rid of the rollerblader filmers. That shit is stupid. Theres no way that works. Even if you gotta push mongo on a skateboard so be it. Whoever began the rollerblading filming in BMX should just go ahead and throw themselves off of a large rocky cliff, because it looks awful (Yes I know none of this video was filmed on rollerblades) I'd rather see a long lens angle from the parking lot of the fucking bump to rail you're filming on rather than a filmer struggling to jump up a curb on rollerblades following fisheye. Secondly what the fuck is so cool about the MK2? It seems like everyone in our sport films with this wack ass lens, shit is not wide enough. Plus it is just gay. Get rid of that shit. If you aint got a MK1 adaptor for your vx2000 then just shoot yourselves in the foot (or throw yourselves of that rocky cliff I was talking about) or maybe get the 48,576,844-year-old vx1000 with the MK1 if you must (actully don't do that either). Pretty much what I'm saying is just get an Iphone and film everything on that. Suck it.






what the fuck? dude stfu. some fucking dope riding.
