Anyone who does shows or has seen a BMX show knows in the end its wild where your bike will bring you. Last night we did a demo or actually a show with 30 models, tons of hair stylists, and a crew of dancers at Epcot for Redkin. Usually we are fruity and glitters spilling off our faces or worse yet air brushed. Lot of the directors have visions but to ride a bike in all of this and on a small stage is real tough to do. We had to dumb down the show but still get three of us on the same page. Rob quoted what we were doing as a scene in “Zoolander” and the models look like “Avatar”. Well with Robs thinning hair and Scotts lack of hair I got thrown into the mix. And since it was a show about hair they had scott and rob wear hats and I went with the barbers vision. With only had like 3 haircuts in the past few years…why not. Show time we killed it, ate a good spread of food, said good bye to the models, and brought my heavy hair sprayed head home to go camping…Where my bike brings me. Go check out @bmxtrickstars @theweavbmx @chaddegroot to see more. START with Matt Coplon’s new book. FL BMX stop #2. How to cut a seat. Coplon riding a cement paradise. InstaVids this week are amazing. Check out the moment of Zen t-shirt we never made. And holla at all the events coming up. END. Stay dry, stay warm, and include your bike with everything. -Chad D

Driving and eating a Lara Bar. Mouth is full and I feel the sneeze coming on. Sure as shit you have been in a similar situation where you have to choose to spit it out the window or chewing furiously and swallow. Well now I have done all three…last one I did not mention is to sneeze and spray lil fragments of food all over what is in front of you. Last time I did this my hand was coated then I proceeded to lick my hands to get than nourishment back into my body where it belongs. Today I got lucky and just swallowed my food and just in time. Pictured lil chunks all over the inside of my car, in the vents, steering wheel, stereo…got lucky. This time at least. Good times at 8am. Scroll down and enjoy. Thanks to everyone for getting us to 21k on Instagram, over 85k on our last video, and those who are not enjoying the cold but still taking a look at this site. Thanks bubs. -Chad D
