Many people will say that Matt Beringer is the nicest, most creative BMXer of all time. I would agree one hundred percent. Matt’s property has been a drawing board for all sorts of BMX experiments over the years. From his garage, to the backyard setup; all surrounded by the Rocky Mountains. That place is a photographer’s dream! Needless to say, when we were handed a bout of bad weather, I was bummed. Luckily, with so many S&M team riders around there was never a dull moment. So with a soaked backyard playground, Tony and Mike Hoder ripped out the Quads and proceeded to get 100% soaked from head to toe… Extra ridiculous seeing as how it was 40 degrees outside! I grabbed my jacket, threw the long lens on the camera, and went for a mud walk.
