Taking inspiration from the classic cult film BMX Bandits Austrailian pro rider Corey Bohan has created his own nostalgic throwback to the film with his own video entitled ‘Bicycle Motorcross’
Featuring some of today’s best BMX riders using retro styled bikes to pay homage to the cult classic, talking about the reasons why he made the video Bohan said, “It’s been 33 years since the film was released so I wanted to make a tribute to it, and recreate my favourite elements.”
Talking about the experience of filming the video and his favourite scene Bohan continued by saying “working with the stuntmen and the pyrotechnic guy wrecking and blowing stuff up is always a good time. My favourite would be the construction scene – it had real-deal riding involved and all the trimmings, too – fire, wrecking cars and nose bonking construction workers!”
BMX personality Mike Clark who is the co star in the film also seemed to have a blast filming the video saying this, “To see how stoked Corey was on the idea made me want nothing more than to be a part of it, sharing our love for riding with others was a big part of it. It’s not every day the locals of Manly get to see three riders from the 1980s do stunts on the boardwalk.”
