There’s no denying that Johnny Raekes has been making a name for himself the past year. We’ve been seeing him popping up more and more in videos as of late, and last week Fiend released his welcome to the team video that was damn good. Now today we get 4 more minutes of heat from Johnny further adding to his case that you’ll want to keep him on your radar. Hit play and take this one in! You will not be disappointed.
“Johnny Raekes hails from a small town in the state of Washington where street spots are scarce, but that didn’t stop him from exploding onto the scene last year. It was clear that Johnny had some serious potential and he quickly got scooped up by the prestigious Fiend BMX. Chances are you’re familiar with Johnny by now, he just put out that short/sweet welcome to Fiend video last week… However this 5-minute heater of a section courtesy of Fiend BMX proves Johnny Raekes as one of today’s most talented AMs.
“Raekes is exactly what you get when you combine natural born talent with hard work and a strong passion. The advantage he seems to have over just about everyone can only be described as outright unfair. As he did the previous summer, he came down to my house in Huntington Beach, CA for a couple months and rode his ass off. We drove all over Southern California hunting down the ideal spots for the complicated tricks he had in mind and steadily stacking clips (occasionally going to war for them). He’s a rad kid, a good friend of mine and a perfect fit for Fiend.. and also the WWE, so if anybody has a connection make sure you hit his line.” -Sauce
