Video: Leon Perkins BMX 2013

By | Riders, Video | No Comments

Leon Perkins does not look at a skatepark like your average BMX rider. He starts looking at crazy transfers most riders wouldn’t even dream about, but he does them without thinking twice.

Leon Perkins Crash Bloody Arm

Leon is a machine when he is on his bike, he has a huge physical presence inside a skatepark and reaches insane speeds and heights with ease. It is almost as if you are watching a video game with the “go big or go home” cheat activated. This is why you need to watch his latest video, precisely 10 years on from his first BMX edit when he was just 15 years old. Check it out.

Rampworx Skatepark has expanded it’s current skatepark in Liverpool by 15,000 square feet making it the largest indoor skatepark in the UK at 70,000 square feet. Designed by John Saxton (Woodward, X-Games) this Street Plaza has everything you need to have the perfect session.

Paul Ryan Rampworx Street Plaza

We have some amazing local riders at our skatepark, the level of talent in the North West is just crazy. We asked two of our local riders to test out our NEW Street Plaza.
Now who better to test out a Street Plaza then one of the best Street Riders on the planet? Liverpool native Paul Ryan (Mongoose, Shadow, Nike) has been supporting Rampworx since day one. You can be sure to see Paul riding the park when he is not jet setting all over the world competing in some of the biggest contests on the planet!

Phil Demattia Rampworx Street Plaza

Another local Phil Demattia was on hand, not only is he a sick rider, but this guy has some serious skills hidden up his sleeve. From building rails to destroying them in video sections Phil can do it all!

Matty Lambert Rampworx

However, the talent in Liverpool does not end at riding. We also have some of the best creative talent in the industry up here as well. Matty Lambert is another loyal Rampworx supporter and we have seen him come on leaps and bounds from his early days filming in the park with his friends (who coincidentally are now all pro). He is now one of the most in demand videographers in the Action Sports industry! He has a client list that most people would kill for Nike to Red Bull and Monster Energy the list goes on. Matty was on hand to capture these two great riders having fun in our new Street Plaza, check it out.
