The Pool – Nike BMX Video

If you’ve ever dreamed of taking a local monument and making it your own personal riding playground, this is your video. Check it out as a local swimming pool is transformed into a rad skate park.

From Nike:

The Pool was more than a BMX comp, it was one of the most extra-ordinary gatherings of the BMX community this century. From the draining of a soon to be demolished local authority swimming pool in Dagenham, East London, into a world class park in less than two weeks was a feat in itself, but to see the diversity and level or riding on display at the launch event was truly remarkable. 40 international riders with a brand new team format saw non-comp riders, veterans, street destroyers and park animals all throw down into something far better than we could have dreamt of.

Results after the break!
