In what I feel is the best episode ever of Maestro Knows, BMX rider Nigel Sylvester and Maestro are shown in a new perspective in this one. With additional camera footage by Levi Maestro’s mentor, Justin Stephens, even Maestro hasn’t been seen like this.
There’s amazing footage of the beautiful streets of Los Angeles towards the end.
One of BMX’s most talented riders, Nigel Sylvester has helped popularize the non-mainstream sport to where now you can find anyone from the ages of 4 up to adults in their 40s and 50s rolling through their downtown streets on a trick bike. And seemingly as unpredictably humble as his talents are equally cultivated, listen as the Nike 6.0 rider speaks on his life recently and his take on BMX.
Purposefully waiting til the afternoon/early evening to post the final installment of Gatorade’s profile on BMXer Nigel Sylvester, we now have completed the trilogy. You’ve seen how Nigel likes to spend his night’s, how he likes to start of his day, and now let’s take a look at what he does to fill the gap between the two. This caps off the three part collaborative piece between Gatorade and Nigel, which has been excitingly entertaining in my opinion. Hope you’ve enjoyed as well. Now I’m off to pedal my tricycle around South Beach.
In the second installment of Gatorade’s profile on BMXer Nigel Sylvester, we catch a glimpse of his activities prior to the “Night Episode” that was brought to us roughly a week ago. So follow Nigel and his posse as they rip it up throughout the city, and stay tuned for the third and final snippet of the series.
Gatorade calls upon the young talent of Nigel Sylvester to showcase a new series based around BMX riding, on and off of the pedals. If you’re not too familiar with who Nigel is and what this man’s game is, please do yourself a favor and google/youtube him. The Night Episode is the debut of three episodes to be released that were concocted by Nigel himself and Glenn PP Milligan. So sit back and follow the kid around NYC as he tears up the streets and enjoys a little fun off the bike as well. Props to Donnis on the audio enlightenment.
Nigel helps me bring back memories of when I was younger and could actually pull of some of this stuff. He also shows us the finer side of urban bicycling along side a sick playlist for the video featuring music from DJ Krush and Lalo Schifrin.
