BMX – TOM VILLARREAL MADERA 2015 VIDEO

Hiking and Biking on the Oregon Trail with Tom Villarreal. Click here to Like us on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1HOEepQ

Tom Villarreal is all about the vibe and this edit gives off the best of vibes. While heading north and avoiding the dangers of the Oregon Trail, Tom was able to see some beautiful sites as well as film some beautiful clips. There are some classic spots in here and some new ones, but Tom uses all of them in the way he knows best: like a badass.

Film/Edit: Chris Bracamonte
Song: Bob Seger – Turn the Page
Guest Appearances: Thaddeus Lee, Hobie Doan, Sammy tedesco

“When I was in high school, the urban legend of the local asylum Floated around in the gossip ether. If you had a drug addiction. If you were baker acted. There was always someone who knew someone that supposedly ended up here. Fast forward a couple decades and I meet “Batman,” the caretaker of the closed down sanitarium. He invites us in and lets us creep through the many cavernous hallways, abandoned bedrooms, gym and cafeteria. The place is prime for a Steven King novel. After cleaning up some raccoon shit to make a path, Batman helps us set up this desk to ride and asks if he could get in the picture. Manual between a weekend of monsoon storms. Thanks for the tour, Batman.” -MATT COPLON  Pic by @scgsteve #profileracing @profile_racing #decobmx @decobmx #etniesbmx @etniesbmx @f0lklore #folklorebrand #bmx #choosetampa #tampa #asylum #haunted #sanitarium @matt_coplon

Profile Interbike 2015 with Matt Coplon and Chad DeGroot

Profile – Interbike 2015 – More BMX Videos

Deco – Interbike 2015 – More BMX Videos

It’s hot as fuck in California so I can only imagine it’s even worse out in Vegas, where Matt Closson calls home and where much of the BMX industry will be gathering over the next few days at Interbike. In this new video Matt braved the scorching temps at various skateparks and put down some heat of his own. Matt’s section in the Blunted DVD “Forever Rolling” will be dropping at Nora Cup in just a few days so get ready for much more from this guy.

“Filmed in a couple weeks with the trusty VX at some of the bigger skateparks in Vegas. Shout out to @DecoBMX, @stackedBMX, and @bluntedathletics. Filmed by: Keaton Harris
Song: Stoned Jesus – Falling Apart”

“This is an honor and an insane list to be on. Damn. Damn. I chose to be only front brakes about 10 years ago and have not looked back. I do that front wheel boogie quit often. Thank you.” -Chad DeGroot http://m.vitalbmx.com/features/Ten-Front-Brake-Riders,4340

HIROSHI TALKS 430/DECADE

Back in July Tom Lammerse and I went to Tokyo, Japan to film for a video project for Vans. Besides riding we wanted to meet as many people as possible and we wanted to really see what the Tokyo/Japanese culture was like. Lahsaan kobza told us to go to Decade bmx shop and meet up with owner Hiroshi Uehara. Meeting Hiroshi was inspiring to say the least. From the Decade store we went to Meiji Jungu and while walking through this peaceful place we asked him some questions for this Orange Juice exclusive interview.

Chad DeGroot Labor Day Daytona

“Labor Day vacation in Daytona Beach with the family. With all the Free parks to ride it was a must to load up the bike rack with all our bikes and even a new one given to my shop Mr. B’s now turned into a beach bike to scare the birds with my son. 14 floors up or if you do the math unlucky 13th floor made for a good top view shot of the beach and just a few flatland spins. Enjoy everything you do and never get old.” -Chad DeGroot

Nice behind the scenes footage at Real City Spin at the pre jam in Chinatown and practise by John Yull. Featuring the likes of Toon, Dez Maarsen, Matthias Dandois, Todd Carter, Tsutomu Kitayama, Jean Francois Boulianne, Joe Cicman, and many more.

Nora Cup voting is over. 2015 awards are here next week. Persuasion and bribes were taken from @footprints_in_the_spam for @johnyull. A t-shirt and stickers arrived so I decided to do a decade and end it with some schlepping. Guess this style won me a few Nora cups and world titles (not sure what that means). Schlepping PSA t-shirt still available at Flatland Fuel for $5.00.
