Bikes Over Baghdad—the tour that’s done BMX shows at U.S. military bases in Iraq, Kuwait, and Qatar—has a new website up and documentary film dropping soon. There will be a screening of the film for family and friends in Minnesota June 14, with more screenings for the public happening down the road (see below for a quick teaser for the documentary).
Check out the new site at bikesoverbaghdad.com to see rider/cast bios, photos, news, film trailers, and more.
Headed up by Christian Schauf, the Bikes Over Baghdad tours have featured Nate Wessel, Ron Kimler, Chad Kagy, Brian Kachinsky, Anthony Napolitan, Rooftop, Drew Bezanson, Mykel Larrin, Jeremiah Smith, Scott Powell, Dave Osato, and Catfish and Micah Kranz as MCs. The Bikes Over Baghdad II tour was covered in Ride BMX’s October 2010 issue, and photos from later tours have appeared in our July 2011 and Jan/Feb 2012 issues.
The B.O.B. crew also has a new twitter account. Be sure to follow them: @BikesOBaghdad. And “like” them on facebook: www.facebook.com/bikesoverbaghdad
