Danny Stanzl London 2013 Edit a BMX video by Ride UK BMX

We have featured Danny Stanzl in print a few times recently and now we are proud to present this exclusive edit. Words, video and photo by Robin Pearson.


No matter how much I feel like I’ve become very familiar with Danny’s riding, he still manages to surprise me. From the sixteen year old loose hucker at Woking skatepark doing backrail fufanus and upside-down spine 360s with a broken hand, to the slightly more mature but still wild and largely careless twenty-something year old flying around London’s concrete bowls, I’ve seen him ride a lot.

When you put time into filming enough clips with someone for a web edit, you start to get a more rounded viewpoint on their take on BMX and this has been quite an interesting process with Danny – my opinion has definitely changed. “That mad dude who just does massive airs and occasionally sends a flair” has shown to be very talented, with great bike control and an incredible ability to learn tricks quickly. So along with the release of this video, I thought it only right to give him a chance to explain his approach to riding.

On a few occasions you called out a clip but said you’d never done that trick before. What’s up with learning something while the camera’s out?

That’s the best way to do it! A little bit of pressure. Usually the filmer or photographer has to sit there for ages so it makes you want to pull something faster. I don’t want to make the dude sit there forever. I suppose some people just ride for the camera but it’s also good to get tricks dialled so you can do them every time.

You got gnarly and jumped off a roof for this edit. I didn’t really expect you to do that…

Yeah I had never really done a big 360 to flat. It looked good because it was onto grass so if you ate shit it wouldn’t hurt too much.

Pretty much every time we meet up at a skatepark you hand me a can of beer. Do you always like riding fast with a bit of a blur?

Haha I just feel a bit stiff sometimes, you have to be a bit loose to ride nicely, especially down the trails. I like riding twisted, it’s better!
