Action Village proudly announces the addition of Dakota Roche to its Pro BMX team:
"I'm real stoked to be a part of a mail order company that backs the brands I'm already involved with so hard. They jumped on early with Cult when we were first starting out and that goes a long way in my books. Plus it's an honor to be on the team with such heavy hitters such as Gary Young, Chris Doyle, Brian Kachinsky, etc... Excited for this opportunity, thanks to Action Village for making it happen!" - Dakota Roche
"Dakota is a legend in the making. His riding is the perfect combination of power and style, something that all riders can enjoy and appreciate. Beyond this is his undeniable dedication and love for BMX. I have been a fan of Dak for years and look forward to watching him push BMX for years to come. It's an honor to now call him a teammate!" – Brian Kachinsky
“We’re super excited to add Dakota to the squad. Dak is a star and the exact type of consummate professional we are proud to work with. We thank him for coming aboard and look forward to an exciting year!” – Alan Walton – CEO – Action Village

It's been a while since I've sent something in for the blog. I pretty much sat around all winter healing from ankle surgery. So, I'm happy to report that I'm back on the bike and back on the road. I just returned home from Iraq where I was doing demo's for the troops. It was an unbelievable experience to say the least! You can tell that the troops don't get much of a 'thanks' or a break from the norm so it felt great to give them a little show and a little break from their daily routines! Attached are a few photos...

Gary Young and I just wrapped up 2010 in a big way... at Woodward West's winter camp. This years camp was 3 action packed days with over 130 BMX campers getting free reign on this bike riding paradise. We rode a ton, filmed some clips, played dodgeball, footdown, and tons of other fun stuff. Almost everyone got something free and everyone left with a smile on their face. Ten lucky campers ended up with a $20 gift card to ActionVillage. Some won them because of their BMX skills and some won because of their "paper-rock-scissors" skills. Either way we were glad to play Santa Claus one more time before the end of the year. One camper, Alistair, really needed a new pair of forks, luckily Gary noticed and hooked up with with $20 off his new pair courtesy of Action Village. Stoked!
Thanks again to Woodward West for an amazing week and can't wait to visit again! - Brian Kachinsky
