Words and photos by Robin Pearson
Sometimes it’s all about the spot itself. When you don’t need to complicate something that’s already awesome and exciting, you just ride it. It’s all about the setting, the obstacle and the feeling it gives. Not nuanced, not niche, just the bare bones of bike riding.
This simple approach of ‘hit it and hold on’ often photographs very well – this is why I’ve picked out these photos from my archives. So instead of looking at how clicked the trick is or what kind of technique the rider is using, we can just appreciate the pure elements of BMX here.
