It’s coming! This Friday!

I’ll take 30 minutes of 50to01 anytime! Thanks for sharing this video, Chip!
Kriss Kyle is a household name in the land of BMX, and if he keeps riding mountain bikes, there will be good things to come!
Let go of your imagination and hang on to your hat!
A road trip through Germany with this two has got to be good!
