Here’s an awesome video from the Haro Old School Reunion show that went down at the BMX Worlds the other weekend. Definitely awesome to see these guys shredding. After you check out the edit, check out the photogallery from the show that we dropped by photographer, Aaron Zwaal!
Last weekend during the BMX Worlds in Cologne, Germany, some of the original Haro team got together for a demo for the crowd. They had Brian Bylther, Mike Dominguez, Ron Wilkerson and Dave Nourie pull out their old school setups and show the kids how it was done back in the day. We had photographer Aaron Zwaal on hand to shoot some photos. The end result was a photogallery that turned out so good that it’s impossible not to love. You can check out 23 photos from the show by hitting the link below.
“The ‘How-To’ video is no where near a new concept. There has been a how-to do almost everything imaginable. Most are long, drawn out videos, more boring to watch than insightful and inspiring. So we decided to take the ‘How-To’ back it’s simplest form. One rider, doing one trick, documented the best way possible. So enjoy as Ronnie Napolitan enlightens you on the fundamentals of how to execute a proper feeble grind. Take this new found perfection and go outside, learn something new and have some fun riding your bike.

Thanks go out to theberrics.com, we know a good idea when we see it.”
I’m stoked on this. Haro is going to be sending Cory Nastazio around to different trails spots to check it out, talk with the locals and ride. Maybe I’m just imagining things, but it seems like there’s been a lot more trails riding popping up over the last few years. This can’t hurt getting some people stoked on it. The first stop he visits Fury trails in San Diego where he bumps into none of than Chad Kerley.

To be honest, I always saw Pat Casey as being a real good fit for Haro, so I guess I’m not all the surprised by this change. Should open a lot of opportunities for Pat up as well. Here’s a few words from Volume and Haro…
“I’m always sad to see a rider leave us but also glad that they are able to further their careers with the bigger brands out there. Ever since I met Pat, I always thought he was an extraordinary bike rider and sooner or later a bigger brand would be offering him up something big. That day has come and everyone here at Volume can’t say enough good things about Pat and his family throughout the years he rode for us. Big things are sure to come for Pat and we all can’t wait to see him ripping up the contest circuit for years to come.
Regarding the Mystery Machine: We plan on continuing with the frame and it’ll now just be Stevie’s frame w/ his sticker on them. We have a batch coming in soon with a couple new colors picked out by Stevie. – Brian Castillo / Volume
“The idea of adding an individual like Pat to our team has been floating around for some time,” said Joe Hawk, Haro’s COO. “A lot of attention has been paid to building and maintaining the right balance of talent and chemistry for Team Haro in the recent years and Pat was chosen because he has the ability to contribute to our efforts on both levels”.
Colin Mackay, Haro team rider and Team Manager agrees; “I’ve been watching Pat kill it at contests for the past couple of years. He has proven to be influential already in the game reinventing the 360 tail whip and recently landing the first double decade. Aside from the big moves, Pat is a genuine kid who is just happy to be riding his bike and is a welcome addition to the Haro Bikes family”.
Ryan Nyquist-Haro team rider for more than 14 years added, “I think it’s awesome! Pat is a young rider who is crushing it right now, and really pushing the progression of ramp riding. I think he’ll fit in nicely with the rest of the Haro family, and I can’t wait to go on some trips with him and get to know him better”.
Pat, who turned Pro in 2010 and earned the Ballpark Rookie of the Year honors during the Dew Action Sports Tour in 2011 shares his appreciation for his past bike sponsor and his enthusiasm for his future on Haro.
“First I’d like to send out a major thanks to Brian Castillo and everyone over at Volume. I’ve been with them for over 3 years and they were one of the first companies to give me a chance and for that I am extremely thankful-thanks Brian for everything!” Said Casey.
“As for my future, being a part of the Haro Team is a dream come true. I am super stoked to be invited onto the team, a team that’s amazing and I look forward to riding with everyone on it. Thanks for the opportunity, its going to be sick!!!” added Pat.
We welcome Pat as he begins his Haro career at XFest in the UK later this week. Stay tuned for more.” – Haro
