Heading out to Brazil, I thought that it was going to be a breeze. Not realizing how tough it would be to get there, this is how it started. I was supposed to fly out to Sao Paulo on Wednesday, but had some visa issues. Therefore I had to fly out the following day. On my lay over, I had my boarding pass ready to go, when the unthinkable happened... I was pulled out for more visa issues! Once again, I had to miss the plane and was told that if I didn't get a visa overnight that I would not make the contest. But to me the impossible some way some how, with the help of Leslie and Jimbo (thanks a lot), I made the impossible possible and was on my way to San Paulo.

Mutiny is proud to introduce Brandon Hoerres’ new signature frame, the Nocturnal. We have been working on this for quite a while, we sat down with Brandon to see what he wanted out of a frame and what we could do to fix the problem he has with denting down tubes. The Nocturnal features a double butted teardrop down tube this offers two huge advantages over a regular round tube. One is that this type of tube is very good at being dent resistant, in tests we hammered on the tube, the only damage was small dents on the bottom of the tube, we also took a normal tube and beat it the same way and pretty much flattened it.
Man, what a contest! It gets better by the year which also means that more and more people are putting the Simpel Session on their schedule. Not only to participate but there were tons of people just watching and partying and they weren’t let down on either part.
Simpel Session regular Josh Harrington took the victory in the BMX street final. Josh simply flows the course, and started off with a big boost. The Premium rider did a barspin to fufanu, an ice pick grind to barspin off, nosebonk to barspin out of the mini, a huge no-hander on the quarterpipe, a tailwhip, 270 barspin over the hip, no footed seatgrab to barspin on the box, a massive transfer from the 10 ft. quarter over the mini in a bank and returned to do a tailwhip on the same gap. Josh finished off with a 360 over the box to a jawbreaker. That’s not a name of a new trick but a crash at the end of the jam session resulted in a broken jaw. After collecting the high air and street trophies (and checks) it was straight to the hospital for a check up. Hope all is well Josh.
The BMXinvasion at skate 57 was an awesome time for sure with 125 shredders in the house. I want to thank all the sponsors especially Stephen Catalano who sent down the Monster crew to hand out tasters to everyone at the event. Everyone definitely enjoyed the Monster Energy boost. The first place winner is Craig Mast out of Ohio who was banging out crazy tricks like a front flip over the spine. Craig did an excellent job at riding and props to him on the win. It was also good to see some good friends who I haven't seen in while like the Mullaly crew Casio Perez , Rob Ramos and Jimmy Mac from Bulldog bikes NYC in the house. I would like to thanks all the fans and parents for coming down to support the riders. Everyone was riding really well and some even progressed during the event like Sonny pulling off his first flair on the battleship,way to go step it up. Albert Carlson was my choice for the best trick during the event he pulled off a wicked transfer 180 to flat landing in pure street style riding so BMXinvasion awarded him the Dans Competition gift certificates for his effort.
