Bridging the Gap V1. Directed and edited by me, Joseph Lobato :) Introducing an awesome rider and friend of mine, Hernan Montenegro from Santa Monica, California. You will definitely be seeing more of him coming up this year.
Australia is a land of champion athletes. But when it comes down to it, few of us have any idea about what it takes to produce a world-beating result... Kirk Docker deconstructs the machine that is Shane Perkins, Australia's fastest track cyclist.
Produced for the 'Hungry Beast' TV Series, Season 3.

We went out with some cameras and a few friends and put together this edit. We hope this gives everyone a nice feel on what it's like to ride in our hometown of Phoenix / Tempe, AZ. No matter where you are we hope you can relate to the great feeling and freedom that comes with riding.
Jordan Hufnagel is not only our friend and one of the raddest people on the globe, he is also a top shelf bicycle crafter. Before setting off on a homemade motorcycle toward South America this summer with no possessions and no plans, he made a fleet of four beautiful bikes for Ace Hotel Portland with his bare hands. We caught the process on film, and rode them all over to the hotel from his workshop in SE one late summer's eve. Along the way, we met cop horses, innocent standers-by and a long-lost part of ourselves, it seems.
When you're staying with us in Portland, you can rent one for the day and roll in style. They have a nice rack on the front (not that kind!) so you can pick up loot and local goods along the way.
