His time spent on US soil now spans twenty years, yet his Australian pride runs deeper than ever. From the podiums, his sponsor changes, his place in a video game and current role as Team Manager for the biggest team in BMX under Vans, we delve into Colin’s rich BMX life. A life that still revolves around the simple thing that started it all…

In Sydney the man responsible for many of these stories is a bit of a mystery himself. Chris O’Donnell is known to many simply as Danger and his influence over Sydney’s bmx scene spans cultures and generations.

The man is as illusive as he is talented, wherever I travel – the most asked question that riders have about Sydney is “What’s Danger doing?”

In episode 3, Danger goes deep. We talk about his solid early bmx roots and influences, his bmx journey, using A.D.D. to get more out of life and he fills us all in on how he keeps it so real.

This episode is gonna be a hard one to top – we hope you all enjoy as much as we all did.

They take us back to how they found BMX on the Northern Beaches to the trappings of Sydney city culture that pushed them to pursue riding and making videos 100%.

We talk about how weird Sydney is, passing through phases, making art for a living and the journey to potential future projects together. These 2 are the future, you’ll be seeing plenty more from these guys don’t you worry. Editors note: Ben’s recent videos are proof of a young master craftsman on the rise. He released one of our favourite videos of 2018 with Jacman Hinss and I have no doubt he’s gonna make another favourite in 2019.

8 days after we recorded this, Lewis debuted in Sydney X-games and won silver in his hometown.
