“We are pleased to announce that Dakota Roche has joined the Dan’s Comp team! Dakota is a modern day street riding legend and comes to the team by way of Nathan Williams, who brought the idea to us a few months ago. We are super excited to have him on the Dan’s Comp roster and here’s what the man himself has to say about it: “Really stoked to be joining the Dan’s Comp family! It’s an honor to be a part of such a dope team and to back a mail order that has been in BMX forever. Looking forward to many good times!”
Dak lives in sunny Southern Californa and rides for Cult, Cinema and Vans. Look for more from Dakota soon!”– Dan’s.
And here is the highlight for today (I guess). The Cinema’s edit from their five days long trip in Barcelona just dropped and it is more that amazing. This is a Must See. Enjoy.
“The CINEMA BMX team took a short visit to Barcelona, Spain after the VANS Rebel Jam contest in December of 2011. Lucky for us the weather was perfect and the spots were plentiful. Special thanks to our amazing tour guide Fernando for taking good care of us and showing us some amazing spots. Featuring Sean Sexton, Corey Martinez, Dakota Roche and Nathan Williams… Mucho Fuego!”– Cinema.
Ever wandered how Dakota Roche’s apartment in Huntington Beach looks like? Last month Cody York visited him and bake a few shots of the apartment for ESPN’s new apartment/house checks. Check it out here.

“Episode 6 is here, the second of 2012. We take a look at the skills and insane hop Dakota Roche has in the recent Cinema Wheels edit. Also, late breaking edits and news that needs atttention. First up is the 40th birthday of The Condor, Mat Hoffman. Thats right kids, 40 years old and still puts all of us in awe. As a thank you for everyone’s birthday wishes Mat posted a short two trick run on youtube. This isn’t to be taken lightly, since those tricks include a 540 tab into a flair. Not your average run. Second is a call to action for some trails that are on the chopping block. We go over a quick edit of Mike Cottle and discuss the impending trouble at Florida’s Casselberry Trails. Just as a quick point the city of Casselberry is sticking the land owners and locals with code violations and hiding behind nonsense environmental accusations as reason to plow the trails. The locals are fighting it and looking for help. So check out the edit, then go to Thefreestyle5.com for more edits and links to a petition and other news about the trails. But for now hit play and enjoy…”– Freestyle5.
After the first video from Vans Let It Ride 2011 dropping last week, today is time for another one. I must say that this one is a bit better for men, don’t know why, but it just is anyway, the first one is still amazing. Team two includes Dakota Roche, Bas Keep, Gary Young, Ben Hennon, Eduards Zunda and Tobias Wicke. Seat back relax and enjoy.
We would like to wish everyone a happy New Year and all the best in 2012.
Our plans for 2012 are:
– still posting all the news from around the globe of all your favorite riders,
