Sean Burns has some real opinions and he has some frank and open thoughts about street riding that we all need to hear.

Harry Mills-Wakley is a name you should have certainly picked up on after our #youngbloods trip we dropped a few weeks back. One of the most talented riders coming out of the UK right now, Harry has a unique and refreshing style that makes him a valued addition to our UK team. Filmed across the UK last year, if Harry isn’t on your radar yet, that’s about to change.
We arrived here on Sunday, out of holiday season and with a selection of youtube links to various other BMX edits and skate trips as a reference.

Heres a few select photos but for more updates just head to éclatbmx.com/cyprus(more…)
