DANG! Photos of Dugan roasting quarters will never get old. Hit up Ride BMX for more pics and a fun interview with one of BMX’s most beloved riders.
Side note: I happened to be in the car with Tom when he swooped a random car full of dudes next to us at a stop light. They originally thought he was a chick and we originally thought the light was about to turn green. We were all wrong.
Dugan’s bike is made for blasting high and if you build the exact same setup, your chances of achieving stratospheric airs may improve* dramatically. Click around the flipbook above to get up close and personal with his current ride.
Empire flew Tom Dugan, Aaron Ross and Kevin Porter out to Argentina recently and came back with some fresh footage. The raw clips of Tom at the demo in the beginning is amazing and some of the spots they got to ride down there looks like so much fun.
We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to send Tommy, Aaron, and Kevin to Argentina for a little rest and relaxation recently, and here is the fun as filmed/edited by Devon Hutchins. The crew was hosted by two amazing individuals, Aurora and Marcelo, and we can’t even begin to thank them enough for the generosity and hospitality. Argentina is an incredible place, and the boys said it was one of the best trips of their lives! Thanks Argentina, Empire BMX
Thanks again for everyone that came out and supported the Full Factory Distro – March Madness event! Special thank you to our sponsors Jarritos, Vitamin Water, Taco Nazo and FHQ. Without these guys, this event wouldn’t have been the same, so thank you for all your help!
Speaking of help, FHQ not only donated the commemorative posters that were autographed by our riders, they also filmed the video above for us as well! If you guys are in the area (Artesia, CA) this weekend, come by FHQ Saturday to check out the video premier of FREETER NATION from 6pm – 11pm. Call or visit their website for additional information… see you guys there!

First off, thanks to everyone who came out to our warehouse sale this weekend. It was a huge success and there were plenty of good times, great deals and awesome riding all day long. In case you missed it, come watch this video from Ride BMX.
This was filmed over a three month period in Austin, Texas at the 316 (Kansas) House. It includes three of the people that live there, Tom Dugan, Jared Swafford, and Mat Houck plus two that don’t, Aaron Ross and Jabari Winters. This is just a small example of the things you would see while over there. As you can probably guess, their neighbors don’t really like them. Enjoy.
Make sure to head over to our warehouse this Saturday (March 23rd) and get awesome deals on a TON of stuff. There’ll be free food, drinks, music, raffles and more. Tom Dugan, Hoang Tran, Gary Young, Garrett Reeves, Eric Lichtenberger, Kyle Hart, Tom Perry, Dirt Ron and Andrew Jackson are also going to be here so you know it’s going to be a good time.
