Rich Forne, ladies and gentlemen. Pegless street riding done right – high speed, high risk and with great style.
This video is full of gnarly set ups and spots that most people wouldn’t even consider, but Rich comes through with the magic. The key? Riding FAST. You can’t argue with that.
Highlights? That crazy ledge ride with what looks like the worst run out ever, those tyreslides, the textbook curved wall to table, the curved wall to wallride, that bank ride where he bails into the stairs… Plus some nice guest clips of AK, Alex D, Dan Lacey and Bruno, too. It’s all good. Just watch it.
I’ve been on 4 or 5 overseas trips with Rich Forne and I don’t think I’ve ever seen him do a bike trick. He’ll go as far as to tell you that he doesn’t know any tricks. He’s lying of course, he’s an incredible bike rider who has shocked the world with his web videos a few times before who chooses to work within an extremely limited framework. Wallrides, tire rides, an occasional spin and not much else. Rich loves nothing more than to find an incredible spot that fits his particular brand of riding and documenting something absurd on it.
Rich is also now riding for Federal. Watch the above video and thank your lucky stars that BMX has a guy like Rich Forne out there doing stuff like this.
“After a barrage of bad injuries throughout the last three years Rich found solitude amongst his close friends at Federal and even though he does not think he deserves it, we are very proud to welcome him to the family. His new video part is testament that passion outweighs sensibility.”
