DIG is proud to present our new original series Versus, a behind the scenes series on some of the most incredible video clips in BMX and what it took to get them done. Versus Episode 1 revisits Nick Castillo's insane gap to curved wallride at Santa Barbara City College. Locals and visitors alike had pondered the idea of gapping in over the top of this curved wallride for years, but it remained merely a dream until Nick stepped up and gave it a go. Just in time as too, because the spot has since been rendered unridable due to a newly constructed shed. We stopped by Santa Barbara to get the full story from BSD's Nick Castillo himself. Legendary stuff!
