There’s no such thing as having too many bikes! Matt Coplon was sick of his current setup getting beat up from all of the travel he does, so he decided to build up a second bike specific for traveling. There is a brand new Bike Check up on the Profile Racing website giving you a closer look at his current setup with plenty of photos and a list of parts! As always, Matt keeps one very dialed machine, so go check it out right here!
FBM re-upped a video from the latest FBM / Profile Racing / QBMX Maiden America tour where the crew spent some time out in the Santa Cruz, California area cruising and having a good time. Hit play for footage from the pool, trails and street sessions. Looks like these guys had a blast!
“The FBM Crew out in the wild- The fifth annual Maiden America tour came through NorCal recently, featuring FBM, Profile, and QBP. We caught up with the dudes for two days in the Santa Cruz area, where we sessioned the famous Buena Vista pool, the Harvey West pump track, and sick street spots around a light house! The squad included Steve Crandall, Declan Murray, Garrett Guilliams, Shane Leeper, Dillon Leeper, Eric Holladay, Matt Coplon, Jay Schlie, and local Santa Cruz FBM riders John Tillman and Jackson Allen.” – FBM
At the start of the year, some of the Profile Racing team got together down in Florida to spend some time cruising the endless street, DIY spots, backyard pools, ditches and skateparks the state has to offer. Here’s a look at the riding that went down during the trip! This has a super good mix of styles and tricks, keeping things interesting from start to finish! This trip looks like it was a ton of fun. Take a look!
“If you’re looking for something a little bit different in your BMX entertainment search today then this is it. Profile’s Cory Foust, Mark Mulville, Luis Pinzon, Bobby Proctor, Chad Degroot and Chris Childs get busy in Tampa with some creative riding and some down right sick looking spots.
“In January of 2019, we flew part of the Profile crew to Tampa and made Seminole Heights our home base for a week. This is what we enjoyed together…we hope at some point you will come for a visit to experience it yourself.” – Matt Coplon

Check out more from Profile Racing’s First Coast trip!
A few weeks back Profile Racing released their First Coast video from a team trip in Florida. Now today we get a look at a ton of footage that was filmed on a Drone and some extra angles. This has a bunch of great footage and a wild crash, so hit play and take a look!
““This edit is piggy backing off of a previous edit that was already made documenting a packed, 2-day trip in Florida. Ricky Moseley and Jared Eberwein flew out from the other side of the US to join Matt Coplon, Lucas Porzio, Riley Jordan, and a surprise run in with Phil Aller. A bunch of local riders met up with us as well, helping figure out places to ride and creating absolute great times and vibes. The whole crew had the pleasure to ride in a new, pristine, backyard ramp called The Ark: huge thanks to Brian Hemingway. A Small mishap happened on the ramp with Jared and Ricky while trying to coordinate a four person flair run: luckily Ricky wasn’t taken out and the clip was executed right after. Ricky brought his GoPro Karma drone, so we ended up with a bunch of really cool extra footage and new perspective on things.
We hope you enjoy.

Matt Coplon sits down for an interview for “The BMX In Our Blood” Podcast…
The latest interview from The BMX In Our Blood podcast has arrived. This time around Matt Coplon from Profile Racing sits down to talk about everything from how he got into BMX and his job at Profile Racing to what he’s into these days when he rides to being vegetarian and straight edge, music, writing and much, much more. Matt is one of the best dudes in BMX and this interview kicks a ton of ass. Definitely give this a listen!
“Episode 40, the one I stressed the most for but also looked forward to because Matt Coplon is so well read and knowledgeable in so many areas of life, many of which I’m not familiar with. After all that stressing we found that neither of us had all the answers and just more in common with our passion for BMX. So enjoy the podcast and a couple songs by Matt and his past bands, Reversal of Man and Light Yourself On Fire. You can also find Matt at www.proficeracing.com or through IG by his name. Enjoy the interview and the week!” – Joe Doherty

“Putting out another full edit in the year after hitting level four is no small feat, but in between his hectic daily schedule, Matt Coplon continues to shed the Tampa Bay area and beyond. This is a documentation of Matt’s riding highlights during the last 12 months, and also a celebration of two decades of being with Profile.” – DIG

This weeks tech tip from Profile Racing has arrived. This time around we get a short but sweet video from Matt Coplon where he explains why the Support Bearing on their Z-Coaster hub spins freely in the hub shell! Pretty interesting. Take a peek!
“While on the Maiden America Shop tour in 2017, a question was brought to our attention on the ZCoaster outer support bearing.
Why does that bearing spin inside the ZCoaster shell?
Is it supposed to do that?
And is that bad?
To answer your question, it’s part of the design and completely normal.
Here’s a quick tutorial. Let us know if this helps?”
