Dakota Roche’s latest BMX video is off the hook… just like every Dak edit. Seeking Liberty was filmed for Vans by Calvin Kosovich and Dan Foley on the streets of Philly. Unreal stuff.
The first time Vans BMX’s Dakota Roche had the opportunity to ride Philly was 13 years ago and since then, it’s held a special place in his heart.
Although Dak grew up on the west coast, he has always had a love and fascination with the style of spots on the east coast. The grittiness, character and architecture just speaks to BMXers differently then anywhere else in the world…
After eight years since Dakota’s last visit (and being cooped up for most of 2020), finally being free to rip around The City of Brotherly Love once again felt better than he could have imagined, and having the first ever Slip On BMX was the icing on the cake.
Hope you enjoy the visual representation of Dak’s time spent in Philadelphia, seeking liberty.
