Angel is a true adventurer. To fulfill his dream of traveling to Europe, his hometown collected money for him for a plane ticket tocompete at Simple Session and FISE He got a bit of lost in Estonia but luckily he ran into the right person, the legendary Ruben Alcantara. Ruben invited him to Malaga where he stayed for a couple of days to prepare him for the FISE contest this week. Ruben and me shared Ideas of how we could help this brave young man and we came up with the idea to make a video for him. With just a few hours to go we had no choice but to film in the burning sun, but he rode like a champ. You could feel his strong will to progress and explore his own personal boundaries, and the limits of BMX in general. Music by: Roberto Herruzo

Don't be fooled, this was just him warming up. He got all sorts of frontflip combos and even cashrolls in his bag. Remember the name! If you have a company and want to help him out you can find him on Facebook. If not make sure to cheer him on at FISE competition that is coming up this week
