  1. C’était inévitable, le flat et le street utilisant la même base, le béton de nos villes ; un jour ils devaient se retrouver. Depuis des années ils se draguaient du coin de l’œil, avec de légendes telles que – entre autres - Dave Voelker Akira Okamura, Chad De Groot, Paul Osicka voir même Steve Hamilton pour les nose wheelie en street, tous on essayé de rapprocher les deux disciplines. Mais depuis quelques mois une nouvelle étape a été franchie avec comme locomotive notre cher Matthias Dandois qui a transféré ses incroyables talents de flatlandeur sur un terrain plus accidenté, ajoutant grinds et halfcabs à son large éventail de tricks déjà bien barges. Evolution logique ou petite révolution, on vous laissera en débattre dans les commentaires mais le fait est là, dans le soul 72 actuellement en kiosque, avec un article sur le phénomène expliqué par quelques uns de ses éminents acteurs français. Pour prolonger le plaisir, nous avons réuni Matthias, Florent Soulas (un autre ovni génial du bmx qui pète – entre autres - le 36 to nose en première mondiale), et Libellule dont les combos sur la roue arrière viennent compléter les rois de la roue avant. Filmé par le génial Hadrien Picard (désolé pour le superlatif mais bon ça s’impose un peu non ?) nous vous soumettons ce qui est probablement l’une des plus vidéos les plus choquantes que SOUL a eu la chance de produire, tellement choquante qu’on la montre au monde entier. Et ça vient de France ça mes amis ! Alors c’est fiers de nous couleurs et de nos 3 loulous géniaux qu’on vous invite à regarder cette vidéo, pour du riding comme on en a jamais vu.

    FLAT & STREET
    THE FRENCH CONNECTION
     
    It was inevitable, using the same environment, flat and street would connect one day and create a new evolution (a revolution ?) of bmx riding. After legends like Dave Voelker, Paul Osicka, Chad De Groot, Akira Okamura or even Steve Hamilton for his nosemanual, the world best flatlander Matthias Dandois wanted to explore new horizons and transfer his incredible skills to the streets, creating a new style of riding. Close witness of this, we (soulbmxmag) wanted to associate the other french bmx genius Florent Soulas, and Guillaume Le Goff (aka libellule) a super tech back wheel street rider from paris to make an article in soul #72 where the guys explain this new thing and also in this beautiful (i think) video from our unique Hadrien Picard who is showing the hard working and talented french connection in some incredible and never seen moves.

Life is too short for ugly cars.

Safe. You can choose your means of getting around by price-performance ratio, trunk capacity or color. Or by breakdown statistics. Of even by fuel efficiency. Now that's really safe. And rational. But you can also let your heart and the gasoline in your blood carry you away. That's passion.

Chromjuwelen.com (Chrome Jewels) sets off with the passion that steers you off the safe path into the irrational lane. The community that meets and exchanges info every day on the internet portal has it's high-octane outing behind it. And often makes everything associated with it—choice of music, clothing and colorful skin—part of their lifestyle. With all the consequences. And a lot of self-confidence.

    After a life changing motorcycle accident Steve was paralyzed from the waist down. His love of cars and more importantly Porsche's put him back in the drivers seat. Using hand controls, he is driven by a passion to once again become whole. A big part of the journey has been learning to drive again. His love of Porsche's is only eclipsed by his determination to not be limited by his handicap.
