Remember this: Chad Degroot 2000 Props ad

This ad was and is still amazing, just saw this on Chad's facebook. Is there 2010 version coming I wonder?

Id say for the time, this ad was groundbreaking in many ways, and got a lot of pros worried.

Best rider ever - hands down. His rolling undertaker to inside no handed stickman on the pedal was the most amazing trick I have even seen in person to this day.

Howard said...

Hopefully we will see more of Chad degroots flatland skills in the future a great all rounder ,loved his Baco stuff.

I remember when I was on the Haro team with Chad, his trick repetoire was unbelievable, that props ad summed it up Chad could do all the heavy hitters trademark tricks without breaking much sweat... unreal rider.

Howard said...

To this day he's still ome of my favourite riders even his street stuff has that cuting edge to it.

flatmatters said...

Chad's one of the only riders who could make the cut in flat and street, very versatile...

Howard said...

Totally agree primarily he is known for his flatland skills but his street skills are equally as impressive pretty sure he still rides flat just not as much but a Baco boxset would be nice Chris Rye you know i'm right ha ha.

flatmatters said...

yeah baco boxset would be legendary, im still taking in the backyard boxset, great stuff!

Howard said...

Totally E it took me 2 weeks to get through the Backyard jam dvd boxset one to treasure for sure.

the Dylan worsley stuff is epic howard, loving it, brings back lot of memories, back to Chad though, he brought so much to flatland, i bet hes still going off now, you just dont see much of him about.
