SE Freestyle BMX rider Lil’ Larry Edgar has been up to a lot these last few months. First we stole him and took him to the city of Manila in the Philippines with us. He got some crazy photos with all-star photographer Ben Crockett (that you will see in the March 2012 issue of BMXPlus Magazine), as well as photos off the bike by people convinced he was Justin Bieber.
The photo below is a shot of him fakie tucking the side of a building. At least we think it was a building and not a skatepark set up. Making it happen in the Philippines.

After arriving back in the states, he started back up with Team Soil BMX shows. Team Soil is a company that travels around putting on fun shows for kids at schools, boys and girl clubs, or wherever you need them. They bring fun times and the word of the sport to the future, and lil’ Larry enjoys doing it. Here he is boosting the box for a bunch of screaming kids, BMX roots…

Recently Etnies shoes put on the 25th anniversary of “The King of the Skatepark” contest. One of the events was the PRO Bowl category, which Larry entered in. Him and his SE team mate Kris Fox, flowed the bowl and rode together during the contest. After it was all said and done, Larry took home the win with Kris in second.

And last but not least, during the summer Larry spent some time up at Woodward West. He got together with videographer Dylan Pfohl, and put together a super solid video edit. If you haven’t watched it yet, you can check it out here.

For the last half of October into the first part of November, the SE BMX guys were “trippin’” through Asia. First the Wildman and Gonz were taking care of business in China before meeting up with the freestyle BMX team in The Philippines. BMXPlus Magazine’s very own Ben Crockett went with the guys for the long haul to document the trip. We posted our own “day by day” recaps during our trip here on www.sebikes.com, while at the same time, pointing you in the direction of www.bmxplusmag.com to get their own sides of the trip. Well, with that said, BMXPlus compiled all their stories on the entire trip into one big online write up. It will give you an insight into everything that went down on our unforgettable trip and will make for a good read.

And remember to keep your eyes peeled for a full write-up in the March, 2012 issue of BMX Plus.
Twenty-three year old Dane Searls passed away yesterday due to the injuries he suffered after a non-riding fall last week. Dane, an Australian native, pushed the limits of BMX Dirt Jumping and his “Giants Of Dirt” series is one of the most progressive projects the sport has ever seen. Dane is a role model on and off the bike, and the legacy he has made will live on forever. R.I.P. Dane Searls, condolences go out to family, friends, team mates, and fans everywhere.
A benefit fund has been made to help support Dane and his family. To donate to the Dane Searls Fund, please deposit into this account:
