For the Wildcard Contest, there will also be public vote on Instagram. Do not hesitate to share your video, the Instagram likes of the original video will be taken into account to decide the best videos!
Judge of the SUM for the last couple of years, Pierre is a true passionnate: he’s leading the “Session Libre” crew, wich has built the Skatepark in Aurillac. He was also the chief redactor of Soul for the last issues. Old school & new school, he knows all the aspects of BMX!
Pierre is a long time rider from the East of France. His expert knowledge of BMX has made him judging a lot of big euro contest, like the Nass or the last Simpel Session. Pierre masters also the mic & has hosted big comp like the last FISE. So you can be sure he will have an argumented opinion on every video!
Vincent De La Rue
As a director, Vincent has won the Wildcard Contest in 2015 and won even the silver medal in the pro contest. He still rides mainly trail and direct short film now. With him judging, you can be sure he will look carefully at the directing side of the video.
Sullyvan won with Vincent De La Rue the Wildcard Contest in 2015. He’s now considered as one of the most talented Parisian street riders. Sully is also riding for Frenchys, Sunday and Odyssey.
This year Sosh spoils you in multimedia material: smartphones, tablets, cameras, connected objects and plenty of multimedia accessories for the first 10 teams of the ranking!
From 14 to 20 October, 2017
Since 6 years, we’re honored to welcome in Paris top high level riders!
This 2017 opus will be no exception with undoubtedly the pros among the hypest of the moment and, obviously, the three wildcards.
Gathered together in one place, the teams will explore the capital and its surroundings in search of the best spots and will try to film the most impressive videos, equipped only with smartphones and accessories extending the already impressive capabilities of these wonderful tools.
Tyler Fernengel & Rich Forne
Watch out, heavy team! Born in Detroit and living now in California, Tyler Fernengel his a young prodigy that can make the craziest tech maneuvers and the burliest gaps. He will be filmed by the enigmatic director Rich Forne. Born and raised in UK, Rich has been living all around the world to follow his shootings.
Considered by his pairs as one the best BMX director, we are sure his crazy ideas will mix perfectly with Tyler’s riding.
Bruno Hoffmann & Markus Wilke
Freshly added to the World Team of Vans, Germany’s Bruno Hoffmann has been one the best European Street Rider for more than a decade. Throwing very rarely a basrpin or a tailwhip, the German wizard has a unique style based on big rotation and backward manuals.
He will be filming with Markus Wilke, simply the first european to win a Medal at the X-Games, a silver in 2000. So you can guess he knows what he does :)
Joris Coulomb & Romain Fel
Joris Coulomb masters his BMX like a few and that’s why he has decided to lead his riding to different sights, more original. Sponsored by some U.S brands he is one of our best French ambassadors in the world. He will make his team with Romain Fel, who won the Wildcard Contest during the Sosh Urban Motion 3 and is a fisheye wizard!
Julián Molina & Fernando MarmolejoDespite an accident that let him with only one leg, Colombia’s Julián Molina has an impressive bike control. For the mass it seems impossible to ride with only one leg so just imagine doing a backflip or a no hander!
Spain’s Fernando Marmolejo will be the 2nd half of this 100% latin duo. Fernando is surely the most motivated spanish filmer and director, so you can be sure there will surprise us in the street of Paris!
