Thanks to @midschool_bmx for posting this. Blast in Germany. Loved this park. Trying to blast a table with more pads on that would make @bmxtrickstars jealous. mid school radness. @chaddegroot with a big fat tabletop in Mönchengladbach, Germany. Not too shabby for a pro flatland rider!
Hopefully inspiring the next generation 1000+ on this school show, kids going wild for the no handed spins? @extremeofficial@dewalttoolsuk @maxxis_tyres
The best way to predict the future is to create it. ? @justinlheureux
Quick Q&A with: @chaddegroot
1. Favorite trick now? Still like the darkside hitch hiker to back wheel coasting and pumping style... 2. Freecoaster or Cassette? Z coaster by Profile 3. Manual or wheelie? Wheelie forward and mannie backwards 4. Brakes, yes or no? at this time no brakes 5. Scuff? Only in shows 6. Who's your inspiration? The pressure of each day is my inspiration to push me and expand my mind to come up with new tricks, relearn old tricks, and keep on progressing but also have a good time on my bike each and every time. 7. One thing you can't ride without? Music 8. What's on your iPod now? Action Bronson or Canned Heat radio 9. Favorite music to ride to? Listen to Black Sabbath on Pandora, Action Bronson, and Canned Heat 10. What motivates you? Knowing that I am not done learning or progressing. Trying new tricks keeps my motivation going. 11. How much time do you dedicate to your riding? Not enough...one-two days a week. 12. Best encouragement phrase ever given to you? You could be dead, so why not live it up now. 13. Worst BMX part ever? Doubler....the cable pulley system. 14. Best BMX part ever? To this date its hands down the Profile Z coaster. 15. Who are you thankful for? Everyone around me who is in the pore of my existence pushing me to continue and use my mind in a way to clear my head when I ride. 16. Flatland is... My outlet, my relaxation, my moment, my space, my vision at the end of the tunnel.

Instavids for this week:
Saturday, December 10th. 11:30am. Tampa. A random dude pulls up in his truck. “What are you doing? You going to do a trick.” I say, “nope, I’m just going to roll in on it.” Let down, he responds, “That’s really not impressive.” After that, I decided not to tell him that it took me a couple years to finally try this.

@matuptobat with a mini ramp session at Foxglenn park in Flagstaff, AZ. “I have been having fun just crusining around trying to ride as long as I can each run. Hopefully it stays warm today so I can ride Basin.” @pusher_bmx @profile_racing @merkemgoods #bmx #arizona #merkemgoods #decobmx #profileracing #pusherbmx #matknowsdeco
