Julian Arteaga is the kinda guy we'd like to ride with every day. This dude makes pretty much everything fun and motivating - even slamming on your wagon. Whether it's eating salad for breakfast or doing scary tire rides for dinner, Eclat's Cali to Texas transplant is always out there enjoying himself, and filming wild af clips while he's at it. Enjoy his epic new video for Eclat, via the camera of Gordon MacDonald. Serious heat!
Alec's part was set to drop today but due to copyright issues with his song, we're just going to have to upload these a little out of order. Actual description: Back in 2011 when this all started Julian was a swag-less, barspinning, three peg riding young man trying to get through his freshman year of high school. It was during this video that he became the ambidextrous perfectionist that we know and love today. Somewhere along the way Sunday and Eclat took notice and added him to their teams.
Julian and Sauce took their time on this one stacking only the best of the best clips for this project over the past two years. These tricks didn't come easy but after hundreds of battles, meltdowns and injuries the final product is here and it is nothing short of a masterpiece. It's not everyday someone delivers a six minute video part but that is exactly what we have here. Big thanks to his frame sponsor Sunday Bikes for supporting him through it all and being down to host the video on the Common Crew YouTube channel!
