Battle My Crew Series

The New BMC5 produced by Dan Fabiano & Dave Paine.

Battle My Crew Series


Battle My Crew was brought back from the dead for one main reason, to promote the unseen talent that lurks all over this world.

Our industry has conformed to keeping the same names and images in circulation for over a decade.

Battle My Crew gives EVERYONE the chance to be seen, to get in the lime-light and show the world what you are made of! Nobody is excluded, and everyone has a fair shot at being a member of the best rollerblade crew in existence!


Battle My Crew was first introduced as a series in a video magazine called VideoGroove Inc in which Dave Paine worked for, and then eventually obtained ownership.

The first release of the Battle My Crew series (Part 1) was back in 1999 and was considered the 12th issue of VideoGroove Video Magazine.

The series ultimately lasted 3 more years ending the tradition and what most people claim to be their favorite years of VideoGroove. The final BMC year ended in 2002 with VG21/BMC Part 4, and VG23 ending the magazine in 2005.

However traditions still can live on, and Dave Paine and myself, Dan Fabiano have worked hard to put bring back both a tremendous series and Videogroove and it’s reputation as a collective whole.

This could easily become the biggest media event of the year that simulates the past VG Battle My Crew experience but with some additions and changes that work in favor for everyone, where judging is fair, honest and your hard work and dedication will be rewarded kindly if your crew places top 25 and advances to the DVD production worldwide for the final vote, or if your crew ends up placing in the top 3 and you walk away with some cash and a whole lot of respect!

    You diss VG you diss yourself! Haters will hate and rarely participate. Quit talking shit and prove it. Actions speak louder than words. -Dave Paine and yes this is really me.

    Loved VG, but BMC was the reason I got excited to skate. Before everyone put their videos on Youtube this is how you got to see what everyone was up to. This should be welcomed, not hated on.

  • Why?

    Why was the date pushed back again?? This is bullshit! My crew had our edit done 2 months ago for the original deadline…but now it’s pushed back all the way to April wtf? This is the second time the date has been bumped. Quit talking shit and explain Mr. Paine.

  • Newsflash

    The deadline has now been changed to sometime in 2015

    Battle My Crew is one of the greatest eras in rollerblading. These turds need to get educated.
