Make It Happen: Trip 2, China

By | BMX, Press, Video | No Comments

‘Make It Happen’ is a year long, global video project under the reigns of Greg Illingworth, filmer Will Evans and George Marshall. Make It Happen consists of a series of four trips with a selection of riders hand picked for each journey, culminating in the release of a full video at the end of the year. The progress can be seen in the pages of The Albion throughout the year and by the release of a trailer video and photo gallery after each trip.

For the second instalment, we ventured to the vast cities of China, starting in Hong Kong and heading into the mainland by train. The trip provided the backdrop for Josh Harrington’s interview, which can be found in The Albion Issue 15.

£6m Wirral Indoor Skatepark

By | Press | No Comments

Rampworx Skatepark Wirral

Ambitious designs for a £6m indoor skatepark and sporting village in Wirral have been revealed by the Liverpool Echo.

Rampworx has submitted plans to the council for a 5,600 sq m complex on  1.3 hectares of land off Valley Road, Bidston, that would create up to  35 jobs as well as volunteer opportunities.

The charity and social enterprise, which works with young people to provide sporting and learning opportunities, already has a  skatepark in Aintree catering for around 1,300 people a week.

Rampworx has been working with Liverpool firm ABW architects on the plans and has now released artist’s impressions of how the state-of-the-art development would look.

As well as the skatepark, it incorporates a climbing wall, workshop and office space, cafe, business start-up units,  a music rehearsal room, dance studio and parking.

The complex would also cater for other sports including futsal, gymnastics, roller derby, trampolining and handball.

Work on the Bidston project  began in 2007 and the charity has now applied to secure planning approval for the Rampworx Youth Village Wirral development, which will allow the charity  to apply for grant funding for the scheme.

Tony Berry, Rampworx  development manager, said: “It will be a flagship building for extreme sports, drawing in top-level athletes from all over the world. It’s  multi-use and there’s social and educational aspects too. It’s family-based, not just for kids on BMXs and scooters and would be a sporting village for the whole  area.

“We’ve had  backing from the community, councillors including Bidston Cllr Harry Smith and MPs Frank Field and Angela Eagle.  It’s taken six years to get to this point,  it’s an excellent idea but that’s all it is at the moment.

“It’s now going to planning  and if we get approval we can start looking at applying for funding from the likes of Sport England and the lottery and try to make it a reality.”

Documents lodged with the plans include a feasibility study setting out the need for the facility following a public consultation.

Party People Needed for E4 TV show!

By | Event, Press | No Comments

partyhouse-big

We have had a request from our mates at E4 to help them find some party animals. They are making a new E4 reality series which will give selected people the chance to throw their dream house party with the opportunity to invite their friends along for the ride. They’ll all have to have a reason for doing it too. Now we all know that extreme sport riders know how to party, heres your chance to prove it.

Do you know of any outgoing and all round loveable characters? They are looking for groups of friends who have a reason to host a house party and have lives filled with drama. If there is anyone in particular who springs to mind who you think would be perfect for this opportunity and simply shouldn’t miss out, it would be great to speak to them.

If there is anyone 18+ who may have a reason to throw a party and would like to be involved, please ask them to contact us on: beonpartyhouse@room414.co.uk.
