Odyssey made their Palm Springs video embedable. I feel that is more than good enough reason to repost this for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy… again!
Head over to DEFGRIP right now to check out the Odyssey Palm Springs video. All I’ll say is that it features Sean Sexton, Tom Dugan, Aaron Ross, Matthias Dandois, Terry Adams, Hoang Tran, Tom Perry, Adam Banton, Mike Aitken, Gary Young, George Boyd, Justin Simpson, Matt Beringer, Broc Raiford, Eric Lichtenberger and Chase Hawk… and that is fricken good.
Flash back a few years and my eyes laid on the Terrible One Cyclops stem. Something about the design left me just drooling. I waited and waited and… well, I heard it’s almost ready now. However, about 9 months back, I caught my first look at Chase Hawk’s signature Odyssey Tomahawk stem. It had a similar look to the Cyclops and offered up some unique features that were similar to the Elementry stem that I was always pretty fond of. I figured it was definitely something I’d like to give a go. So, I ordered one up when it was released and have been giving it a go for about two months now. Let’s take a closer look and find out what I thought.

If there’s one rider that really can constantly blow my mind these days, it’s Tom Dugan. His riding is about as wild as his personality and I can honestly say I’ve laughed harder watching his edits than most of the specials I’ve seen on Comedy Central. The other week BMX got a pretty good scare when word started popping up on Twitter that Tom went down hard during the Red Bull Metro Pipe contest and was in a coma. It got a little scary there for a bit, but luckily Tom pulled through and is on his way back to blasting. I figured since he had some down time that it would be a good time to finally fire out an interview with him. Tom keeps it pretty simple, but it sounds like he’s definitely got some good things coming that he mentions in this. So let’s do this!
Name: Tom Dugan
