It just doesn't have that same ring to it, but hey ho, cool videos are cool videos.
As a bit of serious business first, I've had a couple of people ask me if Dan's alright - as some of you may know, there've been some pretty serious earthquakes over in Christchurch in NZ where Dan's living these days. We got a call at about 3am saying that he's alright and his friends are all safe too, so that's all good to hear.
SRS BZNZ aside, here's some more up-beat stuff. Dakota Roche is an animal. In case the massiv array of logos doesn't give it away, he's also got the hook-up from Monster. He's also got pop!
Next up are a couple of "Exclusives" - some pretty entertaining comments in the chat section for The Make Winter 2011 video that appeared on TheComeUp yesterday. Some awesome riding from some super good but pretty under the radar people. Always a nice combo.
This is a bit of a contrast in many ways but not in a bad way. Chris Childs over on Defgrip.
And as yet another contrast - although mainly to the whole of the BMX scene these days - here's Mike Brennan from DQYDJ2, thanks to Animal.
