Action sports films have a long history, filled with all kinds of legendary flicks like Aspen Extreme, Hot Dog, and many more. Way back in 1986, the bike world was graced with its own classic – RAD - the story of a young kid named Cru Jones who wants to win a notorious BMX race aptly named the Helltrack. Sounds pretty damn ‘80s to me. Well, the film sure left a mark on Braydon Bringhurst, who actually got his start in BMX racing before bringing his skills to bigger bikes. “I have loved ‘RAD’ since I was a little kid,” says Bringhurst, “The story of an underdog BMX racer that finally succeeds—winning the biggest race in the world, Helltrack—always resonated with me.”
Bringhurst has been blowing our minds with his edits for the past few years, and his latest just ups the ante. Taking a trip down to the riding mecca of Bentonville, Arkansas, Bringhurst checks in with past and lays down the style like only he knows how. There’s even a cameo from the original Cru Jones (Bill Allen) himself.
