Caught up with Mat and he has been busy as every with working, riding, doing shows, VW shows, photo shoots, getting the kids stoked, and pushing dads and more to get more in the scene. Check some pics of his numerous pages in print, shows, riding, and more. @matuptobat #decobmx
The last few months have been wild! Running a stunt team, filming for an edit, social media madness, knee problems, organizing a car show and Public bike rodeo… haha life is busy.
That being said, I’ll be hitting the road to go chill in the mountains with the Pusher BMX dudes followed by a weeks visit at Woodward Copper. Always pumped to spend some time in Coloradeco! This pic was taken a while back at one of my favorite Colorado bike parks. – Frisco Bike Park -Mat Olson @matuptobat

My name is Mat and i’m up to bat! I ride my bike as much as possible, specially when it involves traveling to new places and check out new spots. I like to ride street and park, but my heart is home at the trails. Go high and fast, that’s the recipe for fun. I ride in BMX stunt shows for work and I ride after for fun. I don’t need much in life. Good times, good friends, and good times.Remember this…BMX is only limited to your own creativity and Deco. is the shit!

This one time Mat Olson went to Kona skatepark in Jacksonville Florida and rode the sketchy quarter at the end of the snake run, airing this bitch is hard enough, he threw in some TBOG style. #decobmx

MAT PILING THE HOG HIGH, HIGH ON THAT HOG, SOMEWHERE ON THE ROAD…TWO WHEEL STYLE.
Fall 2012 edit.
Mike Meister and Pusher BMX and doing some damage in April. If you know about the Colorado dudes, get on this. If you haven’t been to the new Pusher shop, hit that up as well. This is what Mike had to say, sounds amazing.
This may very well be the standard by which all jams, mullets and Cajuns are judged by; Maybe not??? That is why we chose to do it. Deco is down with the mullet…So the question you, the potential attendee, need to ask yourself is, are you down with the mullet? Cajuns and mullets have a bad rep up north, but they are alive and well in the south. Lets change that!
All fun aside, it should be a great time we start at Pusher BMX Shop, then head to a street spot that Dustin Arp, Shane V, Derek R. and myself have been “quick-creting.” More surprises to come. It will be ten bucks to enter and that money will go toward pizza and sodas!
So show up and do some Van Damage!
We sent Mat a little Flip cam to get some footage while he is traveling. Sometimes its easier to try things when a camera is on you. I really don’t think Mat cares either way, but the footage he did send was pretty amazing. He said he had a lot of footage, which he does. So this is some of the riding he has been up to. He was recently in Florida, so those edits will be out real soon. But for now, listen to some classic rock and let us know in the comments what you think…
Mat is from Lake Havasu Arizona but bounces around Colorado enough to be called a local. He has blown out his front teeth more than a few times, but gets right back up and proceeds to kill it on a bike. I caught up with him a few times to get this done. Its pretty funny and you will learn something about Mat. End result is he is a part of the Colorado scene and lives the BMX life. Work for awhile, then travel and chill, but ride the whole time. I sent him a camera to get some filming done for web edits and he went out and made some porn. How can you hate a kid like that? He also has a true passion for the SKID. Anyways, here is his little interview. I am pretty sure he was drinking beer out of a straw when he answered a lot of these questions. We didn’t even get into the fact he swallowed a nail when he was younger. The pics to prove it are at the bottom…guess this is part 1?
Chad-what happened to the missing “T” on your first name? Did you sell it?
Mat-My mom Says she didnt want everyone to associate my name with a door mat thats why she left one of the T’s out… I told her to spell door mat and it turns out that i am just more special than all of the other matt’s out there
Chad-Its really nice of your mom to think of a door mat while naming you. Door mat is spelled with one “t” though, so I am not sure if she hides her drugs or her money under her door mat?
Mat-I am going to have to check, either way i am coming up!
Chad-Coming up? Shit, someone needs to pull the Mat our from under you
Mat- Maybe thats the reason people try to walk all over me.
Chad-tell everyone a secret you have that no one knows? It can be that you shot porn the other night.
Mat-Well to tell you the truth I shot porn for the third time the other night and only we know haha
Chad-That is sweet you have 3 chicks to shoot porn with. Good job.
Mat- In the words of a great philosopher ” Bmx is great but porn makes the world go around”
Chad-why BMX and not climbing mountains or being a logger?
Mat-Because you could get hurt moumtain climbing, and logging is too easy!
Chad-Have you ever logged a log?
Mat- I beat up a swamp logger, practically the same thing…
Chad-would you ever fight a broad?
Mat-I have and I will again.
Chad-Would you fight your mom to get that “t” back? Does your mom wear a t-back?
Mat- No I didnt like that T from the beginning. If you saw my mom in a t-back you might not want to start any static!
Chad-Send pics of your mom, and ask her to model the T-back. I’ll be the judge.
Chad-you don’t have a bank account yet you work all the time. Do you work for free like community service or do you just get special hj’s as payment?
Mat-I do the community a service and I work for family most the time so ya pretty much work for free. I do what I can wherever I am so I can eat but I tore my acl when I was younger, and I lived off of my credit card. Not being at work got me fired and my bills went to collections= No bank account!
Chad-So your running from the law?
Mat- No I am completely legal thats what cost so much. I just paid off my fines and payed a shit ton to get my license back after not having it for lik3 years I am just running from reality from time to time.
Chad-Stop running from reality, I saw the pic, your heal clickers are top notch
Chad-where do you hide your money?
Mat-I always hide my money under my middle console in my car. I am always in that thing
Chad-I thought that was a secret? Probably going to tell Troy McMurry to stop by and get your money.
Mat- Now thats what I call motivation to get a bank account!
Chad-what is the best thing you like about BMX? Worst?
Mat-My favorite thing about bmx is a nice clean tire skid.and I really hate crashing. I feel old
Chad-Clean tire skid? you are doing some hippie skids?
Mat- Ya.. High velocity downhill power skids. Ever done one? Its a rush!
Chad-I am twice your age and when I was half your age I had a tire sponsor and those things were shredded daily. I use to do one long ass skid till my tire blew, top that rookie.
Mat-We should contact GuineBook of World Records and attempt the longets skids in history. I know the perfect hill out here in Colorado.
Chad-your from Arizona but bounce around from Nevada and Colorado. Being true to Colorado have you ever shotgunned a coors in a hippie hot springs?
Mat- I have shotgunned a hippie at a coors hot springs does that count? I love Colorado.
Chad-It only counts If you have an 80’s hairy bush.
Mat- Fact! 87
Chad-if you had the choice to add 6 inches to your cock and give up your favorite trick or take away 6 inches and get one trick in return, what would those tricks be?
Mat-If I could gain another six inches on my cock at the cost of my favorite trick that trick would be heel clickers. If I had to choose a trick for losing six inches it would have to be flair double downside whips.
Chad-Do you really do heel clickers?
Mat- I have been known to pull out the dirt bike manuvers
Mat-No thank you! should i do shout outs?
Chad-Nope, but I guess you will anyway. Ohh ya, did you get those socks yet?
That is how much Deco. cares about the riders, we give them socks to make their feet happy. Just don’t tell anyone which brand they are…please.
Check these links out to.
Mat Olson (that is how you spell it I swear) has been added to the Deco. team recently. For those who don’t know him, click on the 3rd video below and find out a little something something about Mat and how he rolls with the Colorado crew. The other two vids are just some amazing riding.
