Dan Lacey leading the pack for the Monster Street Series stop in Chicago, Illinois on July 18th, 2015.
The Munich Mash BMX Street Rink contest is going down over in Munich, Germany this weekend and some of the best BMX Street riders are there putting the course that was designed by Brian Kachinsky and Jeff Klugiewicz to work! Today was the first day of practice and needless to say, the guys were having no trouble throwing down some amazing riding. Check out highlights from Devon Smillie, Jeff Klugiewicz, Brian Kachinsky, Dan Lacey, Alex Donnachie, Simone Barraco, Chad Kerley, Broc Raiford and Alex Kennedy!

Shout out to FURTHER for making this video possible!
The Dew Tour caught up with Brian Kachinsky to find out more about the scene in Chicago and why it’s such a great city. This has some insight from Brian along with a ton of riding. Definitely a BMX video worth checking out! Brian rules!
“An incredible city with great spots to ride – that’s what has BMXer Brian Kachinsky hooked on Chicago. The Wisconsin native relocated to the Windy City years ago, and once he got past the initial culture shock of big city living, what he discovered was a vibrant, friendly BMX scene that also happens to be really diverse. A key player in the city’s BMX scene for years, Kachinsky recently was instrumental in getting the Grant Park Skate Plaza built downtown, and he’ll now have a chance to compete at that park when it plays host to Dew Tour.”
The Dew Tour is hitting Chicago this weekend and things are already heating up! Check out highlights from the BMX street practice that went down yesterday with guys like Garrett Reynolds, Chad Kerley, Alex Donnachie, Broc Raiford, Alex Kennedy, Brian Kachinsky, Timmy Theus, Simone Barraco, Ty Morrow, Dakota Roche and more throwing down! You know this has tons of heat in it!
“Dew Tour Chicago kicked off at 11am this morning, with some of the best of the world hitting the Grant Park (plus a few extra add ons). To be honest, the park is pretty underwhelming…for an event at least. There’s not much on the burly side and even the Dew Tour additions are pretty pussy-fied. But hey, the dudes are still killing it (as you’ll see), so I’m sure it’ll be a good time.
Side note, I had a flight nightmare and had to sleep (I use that term loosely) in an airport last night and my bag with my video handle in it is still MIA, so there’s some shaky footage in this. Filming lines with a handheld DSLR and wired on nothing but caffeine is hard. Forgive me. And shouts to the random hula-hoop girl that showed up out of nowhere and tried to kiss everyone.

If there’s one guy that we always love catching up with, it’s Brian Kachinsky. Brian is always getting into something new and exciting and is never slowing down — unless he’s taking a gnarly slam, which happens from time to time. Brian recently joined the GT Bicycles team and we’re pretty excited about that because it seems like there has been a lot of energy going back into that program over the past year. We had noticed a photo of his bike a little while back and spotted a handful of prototype parts on it, so we figured now was a great time to catch up with Brian and take a closer look at the BMX bike that he calls his these days. Let’s take a closer look!
Name: Brian Kachinsky
Fiat recently invited the Vans BMX team to their headquarters in Michigan for a day of cruising INSIDE their corporate head quarters. We’re not sure just why this happened, but we have a feeling there is some sort of collaboration in the works… Either way! You get to watch the guys have some fun and watch the employees wonder what the hell is going on!
“Vans Pro BMX Riders Brian Kachinsky, Dennis McCoy, Dakota Roche and Tyler Fernengel took over FCA Headquarters in Auburn Hills, MI. Watch them shock employees as they ride their bikes trying to not cause too much trouble during their visit.”
Brian Kachinsky gives us a little insight into one of his more favorite setups at Woodward in this quick BMX video. Take a peek!
“If you’ve always wanted to master those gap-to-rail setups at parks, then you’ll appreciate why Brian Kachinsky chose this one as his favorite feature at Camp Woodward. Kachinsky breaks down why this particular feature is perfect for gradually learning progressive tricks.
Join Brian Kachinsky at Camp Woodward, PA this summer during weeks #8 (July 26) & #9 (Aug 2). Sign-up to ride alongside Brian at http://www.campwoodward.com/”
