Against the Grain - DIG X BSD

A Roadtrip Through Israel

The dream spots and guaranteed Middle-East sunshine lure many pros to Israel year after year. As a result, many of the best video parts include riding here. What sometimes flies under-the-radar though, is the local scene.

Last year we set out to catch a fairly routine trip with BSD's Sar Levi and a few others including visiting Canadian rider Justin Hughes. After working year-round, he and his friends book time off work to travel from their hometown - Tel Aviv - to Be'er Sheva, Arad, Eilat and Mitzpe Ramon.

In a country with mixed views in the press and a unique history, one thing we found stood out is that BMXers are BMXers wherever they're from. We were warmly welcomed and these guys just want to ride their bikes.
