Jesper Stern is one of the most dedicated riders I know and he’s a big driving force behind the flourishing scene in Stockholm, Sweden.
Here’s his latest edit in collaboration with Childstore and New Black — one of the best edits from Sweden I’ve seen in a while. Pretty obvious that Jesper is stoked on riding outdoors after a looong winter!
This edit of my good friend Jesper Stern was put online just 7 hours ago and it’s already got over 1300 views. Jesper is the main driving force behind the BMX collective TUMULT in Sweden and he’s also an up and coming videographer.
Check out some what Jesper produced during the spring and summer of 2010:
The CEO of the TUMULT Crew (Jesper Stern) decided to release the first Tumult DVD for public download. It’s a large file and my server here is apparently not the fastest, so just be patient. Do the right-click thing to download, otherwise it will open in the browser.
Here’s Jesper’s write-up about the release:
“From a time when bikes were heavier, most riders ran brakes and bunnyhop tailwhips were only for the best flatlanders, here’s our autumn video present for you.
This was basically the starting point for the TUMULT Crew and also a kick ass video.
Filmed in 2004 – 2006 including heavy clips from around the world; Stockholm, Copenhagen, Sydney, Brisbane, New York, Prague, Christchurch, Austin, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Malaga, Helsinki and L.A.
Full sections from: The Rahm Brothers, Patrik Swenson, Jens Lindberg, Jimmy Röstlund, Klas Löwbeer, Robert Källström, Jesper Stern, Joakim Olsson and a bunch of friends.
The most epic part about this video could be all the different spots from around the world, but to us it’s a reminder of many good memories.”

Team Tumult knows how to enjoy.
Har inte varit den bästa på att lägga upp nya avsnitt av Childstore TV i tid, de flesta har jag inte lagt upp över huvud taget… här är dock avsnitt #14 där Jep Hep testar Downhill MTB. Underhållande? Ja!
Här är något för svensktalande besökare. Jesper Stern har precis gjort klart ett projekt som han jobbat på — en kortfilm. Jeppe har både skrivit manus, regisserat och skapat all motion graphics. Imponerande resultat!
After a long and chaotic winter in Sweden, as well as probably all of Scandinavia/northern Europe, with 60+ straight days of sub-zero temperatures (that’s sub-thirtytwo for you inclined towards Fahrenheit) and massive amounts of snow, the snow is slowly disappearing in Stockholm. Over the course of the winter the amount of snow have caused roofs of sports halls and supermarkets to collapse from its weight and public transport, among other things, have been unbearably strained.
Imagine the feeling for my buddies back home when they were able to have their first outdoor street session in a couple of the only spots where the snow has disappeared and the ground is dry. This is a short edit from the very day when this happened.
Peter Grünfeldt rides for Simple, he’s been on the team since the start. Jesper Stern made an edit of some of Peter’s more recent riding. I found the link to the edit on Simple’s new Twitter page. Check that from time to time why don’t’cha?
Jesper also has a bunch of other edits up on his Vimeo channel. Be sure to check them out.
In other Peter news, it seems like the poor bugger has broken his collarbone. Not fun! Get better soon buddy!
Found this in a rarely visited folder on my hard drive. It’s from way back in 2002. My very first edit, ever. From a very brief time when I owned a DV-camera, and way before the era of webedits and such things. I only did about two semi serious edits anyway, the rest have been short 10 clip (maximum) things of myself to show to friends and stuff. The “good” clips have always ended up in someone else’s edit or DVD.
It’s from a one day visit to a skatepark that is located about 90 minutes from Stockholm. Not sure if it even exists anymore. A bonus fact is that the park was designed and built by a bmx rider who is somewhat of a Swedish local hero, but the park was mainly aimed for and used by skaters. I even heard rumors that bikes were banned in there at some stage.
Check out the small handlebars and big diameter tubing on the frames!
[Edit: Apparently the place does still exist and a few of the very same guys featured in the video above actually made an edit from their session there 11 days ago. Spooky!]
