Ketchup with Kachinsky:
Just wanted to say hi and share a few pics from the past couple of weeks! A couple of weeks ago I did a show with DK bikes and friends in Daley Plaza downtown Chicago to help promote "ride your bike to work week". It was a pretty cool event/idea. At one moment I put my bike down to take a break only to get showed up by the Chicago Bull's mascot.
Fun was had, backflips were done and the weather cooperated. It's not everyday you actually get "asked" to ride Daley Plaza, typically its us being "asked to leave".
The following week was Dew tour in Baltimore, "The greatest city in America".
Shortly after this photo was taken we rode through one of the worst neighborhoods I've ever ridden through. The best part of Baltimore and Dew tour was being able to ride street both in B-more and our nation's capital.
Washington DC has some amazing stuff to ride, with the help of Jon Saunders and friends we had a blast and rode all around the city which also happened to be Go Skateboarding Day. Freedom Plaza in DC was completely packed with skaters. It was very impressive how many people there were skating and watching. I dream of a Go BMX day... someday it will happen.
Back in Chicago things have been adventurous as well. For example, I was riding a local school just blocks from my house and out of nowhere a van pulled up with tons of cameras, boom mics, a director, sound crew and these three lovely ladies.
It turns out they were filming for a music video of some sort. I actually can't even remember the name of their band/group but I had never heard of them. Needless to say they were the last people I thought would ever come film at the spot I always ride. Wow.
Thats all for now, more soon about my new venture "spot doctors" check back for details.
Off to Cologne, Germany this week as well for the Suzuki BMX Masters... I'm rooming with Osato so this is going to be a good one!
