Jordan Withey, probably best known for killing it at our local skatepark with grind wizardry or maybe you have been in store and he served you those fresh parts you needed...Either way he's got an awesome little interview up on FAT BMX that you should check out..
Del Shepherd is a beast! I cannot believe his level of riding for a 16 year old lad. 360 Double Whip over a spine...done...Opposite 360...done...Flair no hander...done...All on Hengrove's rubbish mellow quarter-pipes.
Del does spend a bit of time on the floor but i think the clips he lands more than makes up for it, you have to remember its pretty intimidating for a 16 year old to bang out as many tricks as possible in one hours slot. I'd like to see some keyboard warriors try this?
Thank to Chris at Vital BMX for making it possible
Two members of our CrucialBMX Team have been filming VITAL BMX Power Hour's within a week! Del Shepherd, who is 16, dropped some serious hammers on Friday at Hengrove Skatepark and today Emerson Morgan probably raised the bar for most clips ever within an hour at Peghill Skatepark. Both of them are going to be incredible in their own ways....I cannot wait to see peoples reactions once these get released. I have no idea on the release dates but i know Del's is extremely close and Emerson shouldn't be too far behind!
Enjoy these photographs for now!
Camera all up in his grill
Flair no hander!
Del massive down-whipper!
Emerson discussing his next move with the time ticking away
BOOM! 180 B's
Look at what landed on my desk the end of last week! These beauties, each one numbered...
Shame you can't buy them! I'm teasing you all because they have been sold already. Better luck next time.
CrucialBMX Official Monster Road-Trip Video!
We took a two day road-trip to the MT Hawke Easter Jam in Newquay and then raced back to bristol to finish the weekend in style at our own CrucialBMX Easter Backyard Jam. We took 9 of our heavy hitting team members, some you might know really well others will be a fresh face for your screen. This is what we got up to during the 4 days.....
The video is in 3 distinct parts, part one is us hitting up two skateparks on the way down to Newquay. Little bit of street in there and then us crashing at Lima Eltham's pad.
BIG SHOUT OUT to LIMA ELTHAM for being a top bloke and letting our loose cannons descend on his property for the night.
Part two is our team doing there own thing at MT HAWKE Easter Jam and a few clips from the competitions they entered. Big up Del Shepherd who came 3rd in PRO Park against Harry Main. Vince Mayne got 1st place in PRO Street because he is the boss, no messing around. Then Emerson Morgan got 2nd and Vince Mayne 3rd in the Rail Jam. I think the stand-out clips are what was racked up not during a competition, they speak for themselves.
The final part is us finishing the weekend in style in the beautiful sun at our Easter Sunday Backyard Jam. Lots of clips in here, can you spot yourself? Feel good times, giving back to BMX.
We hope you enjoy watching, please leave any comments you would like to make on any of our social networks. Like/Share this with your friends and tag us on your twitter with #CrucialGANG

This is awesome on so many levels! I didn't bother to mention it in the post below about this issue of RIDE Magazine because it definitely deserves it own bloody post....
Our own Jordan Withey takes over the Complete Bike testing in this months Ride UK Magazine 175. I can't work out what is more legit, the fact that he put his own 4 pegs on the bike and smashes out a big icepick grind or him and all the other staff keeping it on the d-low from me until the magazine dropped!
This 9 set in town has been used for magazine coverage for Crucial before, can anyone tell me when? Whoever gets it right will WIN something.
