The year is 2013. Now that Matt is in the process of moving out and selling his house, I thought this would be a perfect time to look back at the incredible spot he created with so much blood, sweat, and love for bmx. The spot he created at his home in Utah inspired an entire generation of bmxers who grew up wishing they could ride Matt’s yard. I’m sure everyone has dreamed they could live Beringer’s life, if for only a week. I was lucky enough to stay and ride there a handful of times, and those memories are burned into my brain like they were yesterday. I think I can speak for us all, thank you Matt for being such an awesome piece of this puzzle we call bmx. Cheers to the future. #cobrasneverdie

First, this is hands down the best front flip ever done on a bike. Matt was one of the first dudes ever doing this trick and it took years for everybody else to catch on. These days, it has become a staple trick at any big contest but despite how many of them are done in one air or how many whips are thrown in or whatever other variation you can concoct, this frontie off the trampoline will trump them all.
Second, if you were to ask every diehard BMXer what their dream house would be like, there’s a good chance that Matt’s house is what they’ll end up describing. To learn more about it and read a very in-depth interview with Matt, make sure to hit up Ride BMX.

Head over to DEFGRIP to check out our ODSY Vision Premiere. Make sure to grab some popcorn or a snack of some sort ’cause this one’s long and good. We flew the entire team to Palm Springs for a little over a week to hang out and do a little bit of bike riding. Enjoy :)
Matt’s bike has a lot of custom mods on it that makes it his own. Head over to RideBMX.com for the full scoop.
