When the sun starts to go down and you have an epic backdrop the best thing to do is get a timeless photo of a timeless trick. Andrew White back in SF on a WTP trip got this beautiful photo of Marcus Grubbs doing exactly that! No nonsense, just tweak it out.
Today we welcome a special addition to the WETHEPEOPLE family. Waldemar Fatkin is one of the most progressive and exciting Flatland riders of his generation. Waldemar’s unique style effortlessly blends together technical flatland riding with modern street tricks, which has made him standout from the rest and has put him on the radar of street riders around the world for quite some time now. Having already travelled across the far corners of the globe on his bike, Waldemar continues to blur the lines between street riding and flatland, and as a brand with deep flatland roots, this made the decision to add him to the team an easy one.
Aside from being an incredibly talented rider, Waldemar’s humble and excitable personality meant that he fitted in right at home with what we do here. Shortly after building up a brand new UTOPIA setup in Trans Blue, he set to work on filming his welcome to the team edit which we are able to drop today. We’re excited to welcome Waldemar to the team, and can’t wait to work with him on some exciting new projects this year. Welcome to the team man!
Waldemar recently stopped by the office in Cologne to build up his new ride so we took the time to head out into the city and grab some photos with him. Check them out here. READ MORE »
Today we are beyond excited to welcome Felix Prangenberg to the WeThePeople PRO team.
After being able to ride, travel and hang out with Felix throughout the past year, the decision to add him to the PRO team was an easy one. Adding a new rider to an already stacked and tightly knit crew always has the possibility to unbalance a finely tuned machine, however in Felix’s case it was the perfect match. Already being good friends with many of the guys, when we talked to the crew about adding Felix to the mix, it was obvious he was going to fit in just great.
Felix is at the forefront of a new generation of explosive young riders who are able to shred anything in their path and with incredible style to back it up. Even at only 16 years old, Felix’s ability to learn and study from others has given him the bike control and mindset of a rider 10 years his senior. When Felix gets on his bike, he rides until he has nothing left to give, but most importantly he always does this with a smile on his face. We’re really looking forward to kicking it with Felix on trips and can’t wait for the good times to follow. Welcome to the team buddy!
Felix stopped by the office this week to build up a fresh setup. Check out a short welcome video we put together as well as a closer look at his dialled new Patron setup.
The Royal Crank is simply one of the strongest cranks on the market and has been keeping the wheels turning on bikes around the world for years and years now. The crank of choice for most of the team, we found no one better to show just how strong these things are than Wethepeople PRO Dan Foley.
Dima’s been putting in work on the streets of Frankfurt for his upcoming section in the Ciao Crew mixtape so we sent him some new goodies to keep him rolling on a fresh whip. Dima is now riding a sample of Ed Zunda’s signature Awake frame and our new Stickin’ tires, both of which will be available later this year.

10 years ago was a totally progressive time in BMX, and one person from the North West of England was dominating and helping to pioneer the early northern street movements. 4 metal pegs, a chain wallet and a copy of war and peace in his back pocket would be the best way to describe Will Jackson then. Now, many years on he’s still riding for fun and still repping WTP, and probably still has a copy of war and peace in his back pocket..and metal pegs….and a chain wallet…so nothings changed then basically.
