This is my cover shot of FREEDOM magazine in Germany. Was on a Standard trip and while at a skatepark I blew up my back tire so I had to borrow Dave Freimuth’s bike, all virgin white. Chico clothing style, baggy as hell shorts, stupid face hair…but doing the pedal boogie for a cover.

Check the Dolecki pics and why we get up so early and ride in the AM CLICK HERE Tons of pics of Mulville as well with an over under that Mark was scared to do, he is actually like 3 feet over my back.

This pic I had to look at a few times. I wasn’t into it at first but then I noticed my feet and hand situation and I’m pumped James Covington got this pic…enjoy. -Chad D
Ohh the darkside. This trick to this day is fun. When I am 50 I will still be doing this. It started as an accident then led into the transition from front wheel to back or vice versa. This pic by James Covington captures it at the best point, one hand on the front tire, one on the back, both feet off, and in motion. Good times, go packers, ra ra 2013 shocka. -Chad D
