Over the years we’ve seen a lot of unique and unexpected collaborations for BMX videos. This new Viki Gomez video definitely hits on both unique and unexpected. Viki teamed up with a string quartet to mix flatland riding with classical music. The two together are two things not too many people would likely put together, but it works! Hit play and take a look!
“Flatland BMX World Champion Viki Gómez presents his tricks set to classical music for the first time: Accompanied by the WDR Funkhaus Players, he shows his BMX skills to excerpts from Maurice Ravel’s string quartet. Flatland World Champion @Viki Gomez and the four strings of the WDR Funkhaus Orchestra – an explosive mixture in true “Wheelharmony”, for which Martin Frink specially wrote an arrangement from the 2nd and 4th movements of Maurice Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major op. 35.
