For Fathead’s next versus episode we decided to do something special in memory of Stephen Sutton who passed away earlier this year. He’d done an incredible job raising millions for the Teenage Cancer Trust while battling the disease himself. Fathead was inspired and decided he’d like to visit Rad BMX Shop, Alpha and Source to try and get those guys to help donate parts so we can create a Nice Set Up to put on Ebay and give the proceeds to the charity. Meanwhile he gets up to his usual antics and rides with the locals from each shop. Myself, Dan Barber and filmer Jon Edwards went along for the ride.
We’ll be posting overspill edits and Nice Set Up features throughout the week, stay tuned.

“The BMX community in Harrogate lost a fellow rider called Aidan Wray to cancer a few years ago. I’d been watching the news when Stephen Sutton’s story came up and it brought everything back. We were planning to film a new VS episode but scratched it and decided to do something FOR The Teenage Cancer Trust instead. We came up with the idea of a UK road trip to persuade shops to donate parts to build a complete bike so we can auction it off.
I hope this video shows that doing something for a good cause can be fun, especially while having my mates in for the ride too. I’d like to say a big thank you to The Source, Alpha and Rad and urge all riders to do something selfless today, forget the footage you’re going to send to that sponsor to try and get a hook up, forget your BMX ego for one day and pack a big bag, go camping and raise some money for a great cause.” – FATHEAD
