Dec Brooks is unreal. I went out to Barcelona at the end of last year to film an edit with him, thinking it would be mainly park and dirt riding. As it turned out, we got a load of awesome street clips too – the dude is a seriously good all-rounder.
In dirt, Dec has become a real force to be reckoned with. From checking his Instagram feed it’s apparent he gets invited to a lot of big dirt contests, with good reason – he is damn good at riding big jumps! Seriously, when we got to La Poma, he put on quite a show.
Just wait for that last run…
Off the bike, I didn’t know Brooksy too well before this trip. It was awesome hanging out and seeing how he runs things, which I have to say was a bit mixed. He might have been the first one up and ready to head out, but he’d also be the first one to start drinking and the last one back from a night out. He was also the only guy to pick up disgusting shit from the street and throw it at the rest of the crew… He had his wild moments and his chilled moments, both on and off the bike. Dec Brooks rides everything, is everything, all at once.
Thanks to Eugene Quell for the music.
