"It's always fun to travel the world and ride bikes. Ride perfect dirt lines, dry jumps, and beautiful trails, to have the possibility to train in the foam pit every day. This is what everyone's dreaming of during the winter - escaping the cold and the rain. Last September I decided to move to Barcelona to ride during the winter, train in the foam pit and ride big jump lines every day. I've spent all winter training and pushing myself and my riding."

"Luckily, one day I met with Vincent Allard who came over to BCN to hang out with Walter CatKid and some other guys. Vincent was one of the founders of 'The Rise' crew with Michel, Matt MacDuff and Jay Jay. Now he's a professional race car and action sports filmmaker. I gave him the idea to make an unusual dirt video and he was super keen! I hadn't filmed with MTBs for a long time and it was awesome working with Vincent. His wild ideas even got a little bit too crazy sometimes (like the fireworks!)."

"So I wrote a list of tricks and combos I'd never done before...and pushed myself to get everything dialled. It was hard work but a lot of fun! Thanks to all the guys from Lapoma Bike Park who gave us the opportunity to bring our ideas to life! An amazing team to work with and a sick experience." - Petr Andreev

All day long.

VVCforce spot in Russia.

After returning to Russia I decided to move to the VVC force spot, which is 60km from my house, for a few weeks. I felt good on my bike so I called a friend of mine and also one of the main filmmakers of the VVC force movie, Pavel Vabishchevich. He came over and we spent a couple of days filming.

A project like this is always a lot of fun and full of freestyle! This experience motivates me to generate more and more sick ideas to film on my bike.

 Yes, spot on , very good. The reddish light, during dawn or dusk in winter season, just incredible.

 The best part about mountain biking is that everyone has felt exactly like that heel click of elation at one point or another.

 That made me so pumped up. It also made me feel safe in that you fell bad, and weren't injured.
