As there’s quite a big piece of reading lies ahead of you, we’ll make it straight to the point - BMX-fellas WEOUTHERE have just released a blasting recap edit from their DITCH JAM 2 event!
Monster Energy has been supporting their events for over two years now - seem like it’s just about time for you to get familiar with the guys as well. Hit play above, read the interview, support your local extreme sport scene!
Tell us about the crew. Who are you and what’s your goal?
Artem: We are the creative-sports-entertaining unit called WE OUT HERE. Simply put - we try to return the wave of BMX-event in the country, attempting to present it in somewhat a new manner. Overall, we are just a regular crew of friends, having just 2 riders in team able to tailwhip :)
Ernest: We are the family above anything else, united by the love to what we do. We wanna promote own vision of the BMX culture and put a spotlight on the vibe aspect of this sport.
Artem: Our roster is - Roma Pepchuk, Andriy “Luggansta” Ustinovich, Max “Mekas” Kravchenko, Volodymyr “Malodia” Dmytruk, Artem “Skorik” Skorokhodko, Eugene “Zhuka” Tymoshenko, Ernest “LIL” Abramov and Olexander “Samus” Samusevich.
How did you form this exact crew?
A: We’ve been getting together at Vydubychi (location of the Jam) on a regular basis throughout 2019 - to dig out the place from ashes and simply do BBQ and stuff… Well, we’ve been getting ready with zero hassle. As the time would pass, only strongest remained - this is how the core was built. Later on Lil and Zhuka have joined us.
E: Yeah, I’ve joined not so long ago, since I did return to riding this spring. I’ve been dreaming of bringing such ideas to life since I was a kid. Now I have this bunch of fellas by my side, who prove that dreams come true. Can you imagine a better comeback?
A: It’s curious the we have split roles organically over time. Roma is the key initiator and motivator, Skorik is responsible for communication and visual solutions, Luggansta is the technical director, dealing with construction and materials, Mekas is doing the account management, Malodia is the contest expert, Samus is a hella talented photographer and Zhuka is a legend voice of the Ukrainian BMX. We haven’t quite decided on the role of LIL, but he’s a rapper and it’s not a joke. Check out his Soundcloud. Together as a team we do generate overall ideas and do all the dirty work.
