Fun is all Dakota knows, and it’s a feeling you get when you watch him ride his bike.
His video parts will live on in infamy for taking street riding to entirely new levels, and his consistency got him a nod for "2012 Street Rider of the Year" from Transworld RIDE bmx Magazine. Dakota is basically skateboarding on a BMX bike -- everyone thinks it, why can't it just be stated? His tricks are never sloppy, always innovative and always filmed so, so proper, and at the best spots with amazing lighting. For proof, just check out the Cult video, “Talk is Cheap.”
