bkanode #mediocreatbestBTS número 7:
Feast your eyes on @joey_motta 's first 15 seconds of his Mediocre section. This ditch has had some serious moves happen, but this heel clicker is definitely my personal favorite. I've heard some stories about a young Motta who used to ride around on a 24 inch bike and gap halfway down this bank for fun before he turned 15! I love @westside_legend 's laugh in the background as Joey takes a tumble down the rocky slope. Couldn't be happier with his first trick. Joey is a god damn legend. Follow him.

bkanode #mediocreatbestBTS número seis:
So at this point it was insane how much anticipation had built up. It's @clarklcody 's turn and for him to do this long of a nose 180 at the end of a line like this is just an ode to how fucking dialed the kid is. When he lands if you look to the left you can see EVERYONE getting psyched, running, holding bikes above their heads, getting ready for @ericbahlman to land just an icepick. I'm so hyped on the pigeons flying up and away as Eric hops into the ice. Well, in true mediocre form, Bahlman blew it. But the celebration was so damn good we had to take it. Really gives the Mediocre at Best vibe right off the bat. It's probably way cooler that he didn't land it. I'll tell you all a secret. I accidentally stopped recording during the celebration. There was a dogpile and screaming and yelling and the party was REAL. But when the dust settled and we reviewed the clip, it got cut off as soon as the dogpile began. I was not about to make everyone do this again so we just took it. I made it work by ramping the celebration all the way to 0% speed and cut into the title graphics. The title graphics were somewhat inspired by both @busteroshea 's work (with the clean cursive look) and @shaqs0n 's work (with the trippy psychedelic backgrounds.) I found an "overlay" option in Final Cut that made the art look really trippy over existing footage. At the end of the day, I knew we had done something really special. I didn't want Mediocre to have a "standard" intro with crashes and b roll face clips. I wanted something the audience would remember. I think we fucking did it. Thank you so much everyone involved for bearing with me and putting in the work!

bkanode #mediocreatbestBTS número cinco: After Aaron hopped over the rail, @robbiedigital_1 came in with a mighty steezy 360. I've been sweating the infamous Robbie Digital since I was a wee lad beginning in BMX, so to have him involved was awesome. @drewhoss then hits you with a gap to smith that you probably don't realize is an ABD by himself In an old @vitalbmx video. And then after drew, finally, we get the man the myth the psychedelic legend we all know and love, @joey_motta , co owner of the BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD @rawrsuperfoods .... He didn't have a bike at this time so he was on @teemalouf 's whip, which turned his pedal grind into an accidental oppo feeble to drop pedal grind. It's funny how he can still make it look good when he's messing up. Next time, we have the closers..... (Part 5 of 6 for this intro) 2w

bkanode #mediocreatbestBTS número quatro: @lahsaankobza and @tammymccarley almost always bring the party wherever you're going, and Tammy literally shouted party as Lahsaan tags him into the line, and then he hits you with a nice uprail to bike wiggle (we will call it a steezy tabes). Tammy was fun to have around for this type of shit! He (for the most part) kept everyone pretty damn stoked, which isn't easy considering how much work we had to put in. And then we have the two lead actors in @thecomeupbmx 's "Weirdest Game of Bike", @erikelstran and @robdiquat ... Erik hit em with a feebs to charismatic lander, and Rob once again filled some dead space with a move that I would break my face attempting. If you look to the right in the time between Rob and Aaron, you can see the other homies riding towards us in anticipation. When we made it this far it was always a rush and you could feel everyone's excitement from across the whole spot! Rob led me to @aaronmxwl who kept his usual G6 speed going with a nose bonk dp to rail hop! Stoked Aaron was able to catch some time off work doing his tattoos to come film this with us! Follow him to see all his tattoo work it's pretty dialed. Pretty sure you can see @robbiedigital_1 getting set to enter the mutha fuckin party! MORE FOR YALL TOMORROW!!(Part 4 of 6 for this intro) 2w

bkanode #mediocreatbestBTS número tres:
So after @ericbahlman finished his feeble manny 180, enter, The Wonder Twins. @clarklcody and @_dawsonclark_ are absolute machines and they landed these nose 360s and 180 bar Halfcab each time we tried it. @drewhoss tried to put a little hot sauce in this part (the random grinding noise in the background) but it didn't really work out cuz I can't film 3 muh fuckas at the same time. @robdiquat (who I'm so glad could be there) was ready and willing to do his typical weird shit on flat ground to fill the space between Dawson and @lahsaankobza ... Lahsaan kept his signature smooth style lookin good as we moved from one side of Deck Park to the other: his nose bonk gap to the pad looks so smooth and easy but I guarantee I would case the shit out of it every time. Keep them eyes peeled for a little sneaky filmer hand gettin caught up. This was the second portion of the line where I had to get on and off my board. Lahsaans so damn fast he's hard to keep up with! At this point in the line the anticipation was building because a few of the harder tricks were completed and we were about half way done!

bkanode #mediocreatbestBTS número dos:
Part 2 of the intro party line started off with the dude @drewhoss 360'ing into the picture. Him and @ericbahlman had filmed this "front tire kiss" with the legendary Bill Brown for their @volumebikes split edit a while back, so when Bahlman brought up the idea to fit it in the line I was psyched. That shit ain't easy but they were remarkably consistent with it. I will rat bahlman out though, he blew it on the feeble manny 180 so many times. If u look closely you can see @robdiquat waiting for his mark in the background. I had fun doing this part because after Aaron's gap I kicked my board up and twinkle-toe filmed the 360 and the tire smooch before hopping back on the board to keep up with Bahlman.

bkanode #mediocreatbestBTS número uno: So I thought it might be cool to give you all a little insight on mediocre at best. First off, this fuckin party line. Filmed at one of the most blown out spots in Arizona, the infamous Deck Park. The line took us all two full Sundays to get done. 10 hours total of trying this shit, and on the first Sunday we didn't even have the whole squad. One full minute of choreographed tricks was quite the challenge for all of us, but I really gotta shout out @deanwatson103 for jumping from bike to bike at LEAST 69 times while filming this. Usually you'd wanna put something simple at the beginning of a long choreographed line, but Dean is an incredibly talented human and with the careful precision of a ghost ridden bike from @troyblair , this made for quite the eye opening introduction to the video. The don @lahsaankobza comes in hot and hops over an injured @chadwalk who had just blown out his back that very day (he was pretty grumpy but hey, ya didn't have to do much) ...@aaronmxwl filled in some dead space with a steezy euro over a gap. (Part 1 of 6 of this intro) 3w
