ALEX DONNACHIE | THE ASCENT INTERVIEW

Jan 242017

For the past year, BMX Street assassin Alex Donnachie has been working with the legend that is Richard Forne on something very special.

We decided to catch up with Alex for the low down before ASCENT drops this Thursday at Youtube.com/Monster Energy

ALEX DONNACHIE INTERVIEW

Yo Alex, hows things and where are you currently at?

Afternoon, I am good thanks. I am currently at unit 23 skatepark in Scotland escaping the constant rain.

Tell us a bit about how ASCENT came about

Erm well it started by filming a few clips here and there then just sort of turned into something I wanted to put more time and effort into to try and make a full part.

Where did you film on the project?

Las Vegas, San Diego, Seville, Tenerife, Lyon and Israel

What city was you favourite to film in?

I think San Diego as the spots are so amazing and it's always sunny haha, thanks to Christian rigal for showing us around and taking us to the best burritto places.

Any funny stories behind any of the trips or clips? We know Rich Forne can be interesting to travel with.

Haha yeah, Rich is quite the individual, he loves swimming and in Seville we couldn't find anywhere to swim, but there is a massive river running through the city. The river is green looking and we had heard a lot of stories about people getting sick from it. Rich was swimming in it everyday ��

Whats next and have you got a busy year?

Next trip is to simple session in two weeks, and yeah I think so currently just trying to plan as many trips as I can.

Any thanks?

Huge thanks to Monster Energy for making this video possible, Creasy for organising everything, Rich Forne for putting up with me, BSD, Vans, 20twentystore and everyone who takes the time to watch the video.
