I had the pleasure of meeting and riding with Chase way back in 2001 while he was on the Props road trip that they talk about in here. It was pretty damn obvious back then that once he grew into his bike he was going to be one of the best riders to ever touch a BMX. Make your way over to the X Games site after you get done watching this for some good words on Chase and Austin’s BMX history by Brian Tunney.
There’s only two clips from 9th Street in here but it doesn’t even matter. Joe Simon’s cinematography paired with Chase’s riding is pure magic. I suppose I should mention that this is for/from Oakley, before I go back to watching it again.
Ah a day in the life of Chase Hawk. Actually quite a bit more productive than I would have thought. Feel free to watch the whole thing, but just so you know, he doesn’t make it to Red Box until the 05:50 mark.
