Injury is something that Professional BMX riders have to deal with, it comes with the territory. However what happened to Niki Croft at the London Cycle Show on the 10th of October 2010 was something else entirely.
The third entry in the Relentless Energy Short Stories 2011 short film competition, Good Morning Gravity, has been directed by BMX videographer Richard Forne, and tells the story of Niki’s recovery after an accident that nearly cost him his life, put him in a two day coma, and left his memory shattered.
Beautifully shot, and combining action footage with evocative cinematography, the film is both tragic and uplifting. The film also features a soundtrack composed by Richard and Laurent “Lags” Barnard, guitarist with hardcore punk band, Gallows.
