In 1986 a movie called Rad was released, starring Bill Allen as Cru Jones, a young BMX aggressive racer.  

To put it mildly, the movie became a cult classic, especially with BMXers, and is still a huge fan favorite today. 

Fast forward to 2020, when mountain bike influencer and producer Bradon Bringhurst, decided to recreate several scenes from Rad as a tribute to the movie. He was looking for the perfect location - and what better place than Bentonville, the Mountain Bike Capital of the World. 

Hosted by Bentonville's very own Nat Ross, MTB Hall of Famer, listen to a one of a kind episode with the movie's star, Bill Allen, who joins Braydon to talk about the "RAD" tribute project and their adventures in Northwest Arkansas.
