As I sit here with the travel times messing with me, only people up are my cats. They love it that I am up super early and wanting to play. But I would rather be sleeping and catching up on some Z’s but that isn’t happening. So for this week I’m am just giving you a sample of the Flatark in Japan because there is a ton more coming soon with pics and videos. Little more on the Hawaii trip as seen on Profile racing. Tim Knoll on Jay Leno winning the bike limbo. ITs cold out so get a new beanie and keep the sun out with the visor version. America’s got talent with Scott Weaver, more to come with the 3 stage this weekend of tryouts. Chad D does what no man has done with a hip thrust Kendama. The LIST in Milwaukee is going down soon. Voodoo Jam recap from Mickey_G. And lastly the new order will be here next week so the camo seats, red pedals, TA new color signature frames, and the long awaited Self Titled Street frame will be ready to ship. HOLLA. -Chad D

HERE is a recap of Chad D in Hawaii as seen on the Profile Racing site.
Being halfway across the world in the best place ever Hawaii and in Kona on the Big Island is truly amazing but to dumb it down due to a hurricane coming our way. Not sure what to think but were here to do a show and with a surprise guest of Sir Elton John this should be rad bringing BMX to yet another side of society in a great and entertaining way. This is all happening while I really should be at Texas Toast accepting award for best video but I am sure HOLY FIT or Markit will take it. Got to make moves and take it as it comes my way and Hawaii is not a problem saying YES to. With this said Flatark is next week and if you know the globe after this hurricane hits Hawaii and I get out, not sure when, then it will be going towards Japan which I will be at for a week right near this time to. Wish I had a crystal ball to tell me the future. But after all the hype it just brushed us as Hurricane Ana as a category 1 and we were lucky enough that it passed and we flew out. But now is it going to hit Japan as I am off to there next almost like a storm chaser. Well lets get into the paradise on bikes in Hawaii. We had a crew of 16 total with break dancers and more to do this show for Oracle executives. We packed into a 15 passenger van with 4 bikes, do the math, but it didn’t matter cause were on the Big Island. With over 30 hours of planning and rehearsals to ride for just a few minutes it was refreshing to be done. In the end Elton John played on the beach the night before the scheduled appearance so we never met him in person but did listen to 17 songs on the beach. They wanted the concert to go on before the hurricane hit so plans got changed. -Chad D
