PARIS IS MY PLAYGROUND
We teamed up with the Austrian Street Trial Athlete Fabio Wibmer to shoot for three days in Paris.
Here is the result.
Street Riding in Paris
'Paris is my Playgorund' is our latest project. We used the last summer days of 2013 to take a trip to Paris with Street Trial Athlete Fabio Wibmer.
Fabio Wibmer, 'Inspired Bicycles' teammate of Danny MacAskill, is a young Street Trial athlete from east Tirol. As a kid he already spent most of his time on a bike and discovered a special dedication as he started with trial biking. In order to improve his level as an athlete and his riding skills Fabio is training almost every day on his home ground. But the possibilities back home are limited. As he wants to keep improving further, Fabio seeks for new challenges, new places to ride…new playgrounds. One place in particular is fascinating him: The French capital – Paris. Through the variety of exciting and diverse architecture, Paris is offering a perfect mix of new spots, new experiences, breathtaking locations and unique possibilities combined with the French flair. At the end of the summer, Fabio and the team from aepic.tv are exploring the French metropolis, searching for the perfect shot.

Making Of 'Paris Is My Playground'
This trip to Paris was the first time for Fabio Wibmer, working with a whole filming crew. This short Behind The Scenes clip shows how Fabio experienced the time in Paris, shooting from 7 in the morning till 10 in the evening and fighting all the struggles that come with a shoot in a big city like Paris. From angry security guards, cheering crowds of pedestrians to injuries, crashes and flat tires – Fabio talks us through the problems that he, the film crew from aepic.tv and photographer David Robinson experienced.
