Film Location Bentonville, AR

Braydon chose Bentonville, Arkansas as the trails of choice for this film, showcasing scenes like the qualifier races in the original RAD BMX film. Power wheelies over features, bar turns, flatland style, 360s, and backflips. Having ridden the trails of Bentonville several times, this film provides a whole new insight on the All American Trail.

“Since I was a little kid, I always identified with the ‘Cru Jones’ character—played by actor Bill Allen—in the ‘RAD’ movie,” says Bringhurst, “The story of an underdog, a bike, and a dream, ‘RAD’ motivated generations of bike riders, just like me, to pursue the sport.”
