PropsBMX post the Full Groundworks video online!

PropsBMX just launched the classic, and it is a classic Groundworks online in full! Here's what they had to say on their site, I don't know about you but Im going to check out that Dan Rigby section again, damn!




"Back in the year 2000 we embarked on an ambitious project: making an all-flatland video called Groundwork. Filming for the vid was a lot of fun, and I was able to travel to a bunch of cool places to hang out in local parking lots and secret practice spots hidden off the beaten path. I rode flat solid for over a decade myself, and spent countless hours alone and with close friends in many a parking lot – so I can fully appreciate the intricacies of flatland, which will forever hold a special place in my heart.
With the help of some other camera people, we had additional footage come in from the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, and Japan. Brian Tunney picked out the soundtrack and we had ourselves our first ever (and so far only) all-flatland video. Groundwork was originally released on VHS only, and we’re now posting it in it’s entirely here on the site for all to enjoy.
Thanks to Primo having sponsored the project, we were able to feature 12 uniquely-styled riders: Brian Tunney, Dylan Worsley, Chad DeGroot, Brian Rybak, Chase Gouin, Aaron Behnke, James White, Nate Hanson, Leif Valin, Akira Okamura, Michael Steingraber, and Daniel Rigby, who has the closing section.
It’s now a decade later and flatland has evolved to the point of absurdity. The skill and difficulty level of today’s top riders is just unbelievable – even for me, a flatlander, it makes my head spin!
For all those who spend their days – and sometimes nights – riding back and forth more times than one could ever count in hidden parking lots or tennis courts; know what you’re doing is righteous. For me, the time I’ve spent alone with only my thoughts was time well spent, and literally set my course in life. Flatland is awesome."
