RAD: The Movie Collection is an online resource of information and memorabilia targeted at fans of the movie RAD. Jeremy started the site to showcase his extensive collection of memorabilia. He had the awesome opportunity to be apart of the Vans team and is credited as a stunt rider in the movie. The site launched in May of 2010 and has become the most comprehensive location for everything RAD. Jeremy loves the constant stories of how RAD positively affected peoples lives and in some cases helped them stay focused through life. This is the first site of its kind in over 25 years and is perfectly positioned to be the epicenter for the old school BMX culture resurgence.


City of Cochrane

Kurt Alksne has been involved since the start of the project. Being a native to Alberta and currently working for the City of Cochrane, Kurt is instrumental in the planning of the event. Not only does he love the movie, but he also owns several vintage BMX bikes .
