Edits have a short lifespan. In an attempt to let them shine a little bit longer, I present The Best Web Videos Ever…This Week: a gathering of the best edits over the last seven days that we (myself, Ryan, Jeff, Lino, Jon, and Drew) think you should see at least once, maybe twice.Edits have a short lifespan.

Make It Happen – Full Video
With a dream team of riders and Will Evans behind the lens, this video is quite the production. The premise is simple, Greg Illingworth travels to a number of exotic locations with a different crew of dudes for each leg of the trip. The end result is this high quality, full-length video that makes it easy to lose yourself in the viewing experience. I found myself completely emerged in the far off, fairy tale-esque locations, and by the time I snapped back to reality, all i wanted to do was ride my bike.
Nigel Sylvester – Ridin’ With That Work: Part 2
Even with his interview dropping in the current issue of Ride BMX, I somehow didn’t see this one coming. This follow up to his original “Ridin’ With That Work” video might be my favorite Nigel edit to date! All of the smooth and technical lines that you’ve come to expect, plus some new moves and straight hammers that caught me seriously off guard.
Reed Stark – BSD Safari Pedal Promo
That’s one serious icepick grind… But throwing in the distracting lady and that extra 180 off the end just makes this ridiculous. Go buy Reed’s Safari pedal from BSD!
Mongoose Jam 2014 – Street Highlights
With hammers like Corey Martinez's never been done half cab to ice down a rail, a front flip off a ledge, and a tailwhip to ice down a rail, I think it’s safe to say that the street event at this year’s Mongoose Jam was one for the history books. Plus, Ryan Navazio literally stayed up all night editing this, so you know it’s good.
Aaron Ross – Sunday MotoRoss Promo
I’d say the fake up-rail in itself makes this one worth watching… Then again that lengthy feeble to 540 was also pretty damn amazing. Aaron Ross doing it to promote his signature Sunday MotoRoss frame.
WeThePeople – 83.5 Hours in Vienna
WeThePeople’s Dillon Lloyd, Ed Zunda, and Moritz Nussbaumer put a serious hurting on Vienna in exactly 83.5 hours. I believe this is one of the first videos to feature their new dude Dillon Lloyd, and that fakie-nollie cab down-whip he does is amazing. This one reallymade me realize just how stacked the WeThePeople team is becoming… These three dudes make up such a small part of the WTF team, and yet all they needed was a few days to smash out this thoroughly entertaining video.
Mutiny – Philadelphia Trip
Whenever Mutiny drops something like a team trip you know it’s going to be good… Magical videography / editing from Navaz, absolutely insane riding, plus, I could geek out over Philly spots all day. This one really got me hyped.
Jackson Ratima – Stolen Bikes
It’s not every day that Jackson graces us with his smooth style and extremely conscious spot use. Tommy Blanco also did a great job putting this one together and capturing that LA vibe.
Jourdan Barba – ODI Grips
Inland Empire shredder Jourdan Barba spent some time on this one and it really shows. Even though his tech game is strong, he’s not afraid to handle a man-sized setup either. From dead-man rails and hubbas to triple-combo grind variations, Jourdan’s riding has a lot going on, and he’s continually taking his large bag of tricks to bigger and bigger spots.
Logan Martin – “This is Me”
Logan Martin basically makes BMX look like a video game in this edit for Jet Pilot. He has a big bag of nearly incomprehensible tricks, and they’re all pulled at some serious height.
