It’s been a little while since we have hit up Trent McDaniel to see what was new with him. We caught wind the other day that he was just about to build up a fresh new bike thanks to Hoffman Bikes and Division Brand, so we figured that there was no better time than now to check in with him! Let’s take a closer look at this dialed bike along with a few extra questions to find out what else is new with him! – BmxUnion.com
What are your travel plans looking like this summer? Anywhere in particular you hope to get to that isn’t for sure yet?
Nothing for sure yet. Gonna stick around Chicago til July at least to finish up this Hoffman piece. Head out to Montana and kick it with my girl. Then makin that move to Austin by August.

Work In Progress with Bob Manchester Episode 2
Despite being a ‘pro rider’ Bob Manchester spends 8 hours a day getting his hands dirty with hard graft on building sites. But there’s a reason he does this job – he can walk away every day at 5:30, super amped to ride, no less. He proves it in this video with a weekend jaunt to Málaga where he rides the incredible park designed by Rubén Alcántara. The combination of such a perfect setup and Bob’s formidable skills is nothing short of sublime. Work In Progress – Bob Manchester Rides Rubén Alcántara’s New Park

Bike Check Wednesday with Mason Ritter
Newly added team member Mason Ritter is this weeks bike check. This black Bama set up with orange parts will defiantly catch your eyes. So take a moment and read his interview, watch his edit and check out that beauty of a bike.
So take a moment and read his interview and check out his bike check.. enjoy!!
What is the one part you find yourself having to replace on a regular basis? And why?
A part that I have to replace on a regular basis is grips. They just get worn out super fast.
What part do you spend the most time on to make sure it’s dialed in?
I am always adjusting my brakes, and cleaning my back rim with Simple Green.
What or Who got you into bmx?
My dad got me into bmx when I was about 3 or 4. I had no idea what bmx was at the time, but he would always take me to some of the local skateparks to cruise around. Or we would build little dirt jumps and these makeshift ramps to jump off of. And of course seeing XGames and the Vans Triple Crown on TV got me pumped on bmx.
What are some other interest you have outside of BMX?
Outside of bmx I enjoy photography, walking around in nature, snowboarding, drawing, and hanging out with friends.
What are thing you like to accomplish this year both in bmx and outside bmx?
With bmx I would like to come up with some new innovative tricks, and just progress my riding. Outside of bmx I’d like to start screen printing, and make some baller shirts!
