Ultimate Weekend // A Forgotten Classic

The Ultimate Weekend kinda flys under the radar of the videos that were being released around 90′ but it definitely captures a certain vibe. The spots and riders make me feel like i am in an issue of GO magazine! Here is more info from the videos creator.

After 2 1/2 years working for the video company owned by Vision Skateboards/Vision Street Wear, I decided I needed to make my own BMX freestyle video. Following the lead of Eddie Roman (Aggroman) and Mark Eaton (Dorkin’ in York), I produced The Ultimate Weekend in 1990, releasing the video in October. The idea was to show what our lifestyle of BMX riding was like in a realistic way, which was much different than the “professional” bike videos of the day where everyone was wearing leathers and helmets… even while riding flatland. Riders in the video include: Keith Treanor, John Povah, Randy Lawrence, Chris Moeller, Dave Clymer, Alan Valek, Andy Mulcahy, Jess Dyrenforth, Chris Day, Dan Hubbard, Todd Anderson, Jeff Cotter, Gary Laurent, and many more. There’s also a cameo by skateboarder Pierre Andre Senizergues, who went on to found Etnies shoes.
