This week was an overload of emails and messages, most that didn't make sense, about getting a sponsor. I am honored you thought of DecoBMX for support but as I have said before you need to contact your local BMX shop and get involved with them or get the local bike shop carry bmx goods and help them spread the word and support our industry. Check out Dig magazine to see more on what to do and what to expect from bmx. Scroll down to what this one sponsor-me email went like...take note. START-Rays edit came out sweet, Tom Villarreal clocked some footage and killed that whole place but main focus on the park course for this new edit, Chad has a sweet clip in there to. Tsutomu is the new TEAM rider so check out his page, click the link below. Check out Chad's bike check on the QBPBMX site. Mat Olson road trip looked and seemed amazing, check out what his crew was up to for a few weeks. Coplon always getting down on the weekends with the hot spots in Tampa area...I am going down there soon to see this in person.

I was asked to go on this trip by Morgan Wade during practice at the Extreme Thing event in Las Vegas. When he told me that it was a 10 day trip starting in AZ going through Southern California, hitting up Woodward, Fresno, Sacramento, Reno, Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Wichita Falls and back into Dallas. We ran into some crazy weather traveling from cali into Nevada so we kinda just had to wing it due to snow and rain. Havasu made for an excellent plan b. showing these guys all my spots that I grew up riding was a dream come true. We met up with my buddy San Stebila and he showed us some amazing hospitality. Thanks to Sam and Havasu Pest control for their generosity. We are now headed back through AZ to New Mexico tonight, and then onward to Texas. This has been such a productive trip, I can't even begin to pick a favorite spot. Huge Thanks to Morgan Wade, Chris Arriaga, Cory Foust, and Cameron Muilenburg. Having such a solid crew made for so many laughs and a ton of epic riding. I would also like to thank Headrush brand and Morgan for putting this trip together, Deco bmx, Profile racing, Pusher bmx, Alienation, amd Merkem Goods for giving me the opportunity to ride an amazing set up while traveling, riding and meeting new people. -MAT OLSON
Florida is flat, Florida is Fat, but somehow Matt Coplon keeps finding spots like this sweet ditch sub and wedge cement gem. Hell yes.
Happy Birthday to Hiroshi
April 4th, to celebrate he put together a new ride...loving that color and the new Succubus lite stickers.
