Final edits are now live !
After weeks of dropping teasers, Vans Europe and DIG BMX are excited to announce that the final edits from all 10 shops are now live and ready to be judged by you.
Created to support local BMX stores, their riders and their communities, The Circle is a brand new BMX filming competition where 10 BMX shops from across the UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Russia will go head to head for the chance to win up to €20,000 in prize money.
After assembling their teams of up to 6 members with a mix of pros and ams, the crews have been working hard to film and produce their final edits. Our brief to them was pretty simple; stay local, be inclusive, be creative and engage their community, which ultimately is at the core of what The Circle is all about. The aim is to celebrate local BMX communities, everyone who contributes to their scene and ultimately what makes their BMX circle what it is.
The edits will be judged by the public but also by some of the most prolific names in the BMX world – including Dakota Roche, Alex Valentino, Peter Adam and Jon Taylor.
Voting is live from now (6th November) until Thursday 12th November, with the winners announced in a live one-hour online screening on November 14th. For more information on the live show and to cast your vote, head over to DIGBMX.com.
