Filmed in Bentonville, Arkansas, "BRAYD" showcases scenes similar to the qualifying races of the original 1986-released movie "RAD" featuring Bringhurst’s innovative riding—inspired by throwback style, like classic flatland tricks, turn-bars, backflips and power wheelies.
With unique features--like wallride landing zones (left) and rideable art installations (right)--Bentonville became Bringhurst's obvious choice for a qualifying-for-Helltrack, "RAD"-movie-inspired video.

“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.”

“I hope my tribute video gives viewers the same inspiration ‘RAD’ originally gave me as a child,” says Bringhurst, “To be inspired to ride, and have fun on your bike.”Produced by: Burst Media CreativeWith support from: Canyon USAFeaturing: Braydon Bringhurst
