Video: BMX Inspired Trail Riding in 'This is Slopeduro'

Sep 1, 2021
by Aleksander Osmałek  

BMX riders migrate to MTB world like a horny salmon herd up the stream. They won't stop! Yet, Dawid Czekaj is not simply "another one". Dawid has been killing it on the local scene and even made it to the Polish BMX Olympic team with his results. Yet, he chose big wheels, suspension and long top to bottom runs which he called "slopeduro". What is slopeduro? As a part of the UCI beloved Beerduro team, Dawid Czekaj put his BMX steez into classic trail bikes, and as a result, we simply want to go out and ride!

Chug it!

 lol ive been tossing slopeduro around as a complete joke in conversation but im 100% serious about turning my norco sight into a bike that i can barspin. Waiting on covid supply chains to get back to normal so trickstuff can start selling their trixxer again. losing sleep at night trying to determine if i want to keep/relocate my dropper post lmao.


Dunno why we stopped calling it freeride now though lmao.

 Could do without the BMX street style editing. Just a little overcooked. Monochrome rarely plays well with MTB due to the foliage, foreground and back. And then they randomly throw in color with borderline instagram filtering and artificial screen tearing like its "VHS footy".

Def a bad case of choose your lane. Should have just committed to the monochrome since the BnW graphics play well with it.

 An edit for people with ADHD. It’s unwatchable.
