What's your earliest memory of BMX? Scott Bradley Barrette: One of my earliest memories of BMX was around 1975. Our local shop 'California Pedaler' was starting to bring in Cool BMX products... One day a Gold G-boy frame showed up on their wall! I remember being so impressed with how amazingly light this frame was! That day was when we met a couple local racers. Doug and John, they shared stories of BMX racing. That was when I decided that I must try this new sport... I did.
24 year old Dorian Ghanty just came through swinging! Filmed over a year in Barcelona and his hometown of Paris, France, Dorian went in big time. Burly downledges, rail rides, tech flat ledge moves... he's got it all. He even closes things out with that scary Parisian rail Sean Burns took care of on an Anthem trip back in the day. Look out for this guy!
The Audio is built around a larger 22” diameter wheel, providing a more stable ride without sacrificing the classic BMX look and feel. Perfect for the die-hard trail dogs, just or taller riders looking for bike more fitting to their size, without having to ride a bike that simply isn’t a BMX.

The first time Vans BMX's Dakota Roche had the opportunity to ride Philly was 13 years ago and since then, it’s held a special place in his heart. Although Dak grew up on the west coast, he has always had a love and fascination with the style of spots on the east coast.
Whether experiencing a place for the very first time or revisiting a cherished city and its memory-triggering landmarks, the act of traveling often conjures a distinct emotional response (and perhaps even more so during a pandemic year that has halted most travel). For Dakota Roche, that city is Philadelphia, and those landmarks— both discreet and iconic—were a welcomed breath of fresh air after being homebound for most of 2020.
Together with Vans, Dakota made his way back to the City of Brotherly Love after an eight-year hiatus, and spent some time re-learning the ins and outs of spots that have held a special place in his heart since his pilgrimage there nearly 13 years ago.
