Here’s one from Animal Bikes‘ connect in Russia through Big Toys, Anton “OZZ” Schutskiy, getting down at a spot that resembles The Bakery almost exactly… We honestly had to scroll back and make sure it wasn’t the same place, haha. Either way, Ozz brings his buttery smooth style with plenty of grinds and balance to this DIY spot and ended up with some excellent clips and a dialed BMX video. Hit play and check it out!
Although The Bakery was forced to close its doors lately, Brian Kachinsky and the rest of the crew are still making things happen! They recently built a rail at 4Seasons Skatepark in Milwaukee for a jam and went to work breaking it in for this new video! Check out Mike Hinkens, Jeff Klugiewicz, Jeff Dowhen, Dylan McCauley, Grant Castelluzzo, Trent McDaniel, Timmy Theus and Brian Kachinsky putting their pegs to proper use!
Here’s some interesting news about Brian Kachinsky’s facility, The Bakery, which suddenly had its lease cut from the new location they just moved into a few months back. There’s no word on a new location, yet, but it sounds like a real possibility. Check out some words direct from Brian below. This is a bummer, that’s for sure.
“2013 has been the best year The Bakery has seen since it’s birth in 2011. In 2013 we have torn down, rebuilt and produced what we set to produce, quality BMX videos that highlighted some of the best BMX riders on the planet. Our Preheating, Baker’s Dozens, Special Recipes, Ingredients and Secret Recipe event all accomplished their respective goals and were a pleasure to watch and produce. Furthermore, these projects surpassed our original expectations. Combining talented people with a relentless work ethic always produces successful results.
In recent weeks The Bakery was faced with an unexpected challenge in regards to the current location. The lease agreement terms had been changed prematurely and we are unable to remain in the current location, quick action was needed. The Bakery is currently being moved into storage and the project is put on pause until a solution is reached. Two relocations in a year has been difficult, time consuming and expensive but this is not an end to The Bakery. What I have learned through all this has better equipped me for the future as I search for new options for The Bakery.
My goal from the start has been to create something special for BMX. I always want to help BMX move forward. This progress could be a pro doing a new trick, a filmer/photographer refining their skills and meeting new people, or helping the scene grow locally, nationally and internationally. I’m very proud of the work that we have done this year under that roof we called home.
As we continue to tear down the ramps/rails I have to take some time for some thanks during this transition period. A big thanks to my crew: Andrew Brady, Anthony Loconte, Paul Dybas and Tim Burkhart. These were the riders behind the lens that made this magic possible and I can’t thank them enough for being great workers and friends. Also thanks to everyone in the Chicago BMX scene who have made this place heaven on earth. There will be more great sessions, laughs and good times in the future. In addition thanks to any sponsors who we have worked with this year. Thanks for having faith and confidence in something that’s created by BMX for BMX. Most of all, thanks to everyone who’s watched a Bakery video. These are made for you.” – Brian Kachinsky
There is also an interview with Brian on the Red Bull website where he talks about the recent Secret Recipe event they held at The Bakery shortly before being evicted.
I’m stunned. I’m fans of both of these guys and I had pretty high expectations of what this video would be like, but I couldn’t have really imagined it like this. Serious next level stuff. So technical, so creative… to call it a “must see” is an understatement. I haven’t been this blown away in a long time.

“12 of the world’s best BMX street riders went all out on The Bakery’s setups for the Bakery Secret Recipe, but at the end, Jeremiah Smith, Bruno Hoffmann and Broc Raiford came out on top.“
Here’s the latest Inside The Bakery edit from Red Bull that has left me quite confused… This episode is based off a few months back when Brian went to Russia for a contest, but then talks about the lease agreement for the location going south… but the riding is from the new location… So I’m not sure if they’re talking about the old location or the new location that is having issues. Ah! So much confusion. Just watch the dialed riding in this.
“The Bakery heads to Russia to feed the BMX scene and to bring back winner of the Best Trick Contest, Andreev Kostya, to shred Chicago. The Bakery’s future gets shaken up when Brian hears some shocking news regarding the spot’s lease agreement. Tune in to see what the future holds for The Bakery and Brian’s BMX crew.”
