“Sad news” RIP Philipe Pereira!

Philipe was one of the greatest ramp riders in the late eighties and a friend of ours. He lived in France most of his live but around 1992 after a knee injury he came to live in Leiria, Portugal home land of his parents. He rode with us for long time till health and personal problems took him to France again.

How we meet him, funny story:

This I have to tell you all “The day we meet Philipe Pereira”

At the time we didn’t know much about the French bmx scene and nobody except Frank new Philipe.

We were all in a local contest riding our small bikes. From the crowd comes this guy, very well dressed with shiny shoes asking if he could ride one of our bikes. We let him ride thinking that was some guy trying to act smart and get some attention (he really didn’t look a bmx’er to us). He pedal towards the ramps, at that time we thought we were going to see someone getting hurt  but, he cranked up to the 3m height quarter pipe and puled a big air: -How is this guy- someone said. In the meantime he cranked up again and pulled a big stretched lookback can can, we were all amazed with him, most of us there, have never witness that kind of riding. He kept going 540’s, no handed airs, no foot one handed airs etc etc, I will never forget that day, that’s the way I will always remember him, and also the afternoons playing Dave Mirra in the playstation :)

RIP my friend.
