BOMBTRACK "GROUNDWORK 2016"

October 2016 saw the first ever Groundworks event, held at "La Chateau de Gressoux" in the Franche-Comté region of France. The event was a meeting, and indeed a 'thank you' to those that helped and still work to build Bombtrack into the brand it is today. From across Europe we brought together team riders, ambassadors, distributors, shops and "family" members like OSM films, Jason Sellers and design partners such as Olaf Wit. These kind of events don't happen often enough, but when they do it’s always a pleasure to be surrounded by, and ride bikes with such incredible people. On hand, we had a selection of the latest 2017 models as well as some special race proven machines that had completed challenging events such as the Tuscany Trail, Torino-Nice, and the Alpes version of La Haute-Route. With such a knowledgeable and passionate group of bike riders all in one place we took the opportunity to use this highly qualified focus group to share and discuss ideas for developments and future models face to face. The event was a huge success with great vibes all weekend long and in such a stunning location and great weather to-boot we couldn’t have asked for more.

Jason Sellers (born April, 14th 1980) grew up in Wiesbaden<br />

Germany, lived for a few years in Los Angeles CA., studied<br />

Graphic Design and did magazine layout for several years.<br />

Photography eventually entered his life and quickly dominated<br />

his path. In 2011 he founded “Forward Bound Photos”<br />

to create a plattform for his documentary and lifestyle<br />

driven photography.<br />

“Sellers is an example of the creative chaos of contemporary<br />

photography. Portraits, sports, lifestyle, fashion, landscape,<br />

classical street photography - all of which adds up to<br />

a photographic attitude whose modernity is obvious.<br />

His images reflect the here and now when he photographs bikes,<br />

bands, bike messengers, cyclists, young people on the street<br />

and especially the globally networked cycling scene. The details<br />

are important here, because fashion and lifestyle are a form<br />

of expression and have a message. Youth culture, joy of sport,<br />

vitality, but also the fragility of the present - all this can be<br />

found in his pictures.”<br />

Quote: German art historian Marc Peschke in reference<br />

to an exhibition of Jason Sellers in 2013.

LA CHATEAU<br />

DE GRESSOUX<br />

October 2016 saw the first ever Groundworks event, held at “La Chateau de Gressoux”<br />

in the Franche-Comté region of France. The event was a meeting, and indeed a ‘thank<br />

you’ to those that helped and still work to build Bombtrack into the brand it is today.<br />

From across Europe we brought together team riders, ambassadors, distributors, shops<br />

and “family” members like OSM films, Jason Sellers and design partners such as Olaf<br />

Wit. These kind of events don’t happen often enough, but when they do it’s always<br />

a pleasure to be surrounded by, and ride bikes with, such incredible people.<br />

On hand, we had a selection of the latest 2017 models as well as some special race<br />

proven machines that had completed challenging events such as the Tuscany Trail,<br />

Torino-Nice, and the Alpes version of La Haute-Route. With such a knowledgeable<br />

and passionate group of bike riders all in one place we took the opportunity to use<br />

this highly qualified focus group to share and discuss ideas for developments and<br />

future models.<br />

The event was a huge success with great vibes all weekend long and in such a stunning<br />

location and great weather to-boot we couldn’t have asked for more. To give you a feel<br />

for what went on, we are sure you will enjoy a flip through this lookbook shot by our<br />

friend and photographer Jason Sellers.
