A quick new one from Chad Kerley and Christian Rigal (behind the lens taking care of filming duties) as none other than Swatch welcomes him to their pro team. Swatch have actually been involved in BMX for years now, decades actually – from sponsoring the likes of Ron Wilkerson, Brian Blyther, Mat Hoffman and more back in the late 80s and early 90s, the Swatch Pro Tour, UK tour and team sponsorships, through to other event and rider sponsorship deals, right up to now – they’ve been in the game for a long time. No pun intended. Welcome to the team Chad Kerley, it’s about time. Again, no pun intended. Enjoy.
“Swatch is excited to welcome Chad Kerley to its Pro team. In love with his bike ever since the age of four, the San Diego-based BMXer focused and conquered the world of racing before changing to riding parks and streets of his hometown with his homies. Pushing the limits of creativity and chasing constant progression are Chad’s fuel, and, with every contest and
challenge, he just keeps getting better and better. With two gold, silver, and bronze medals in the X Games, the pinnacle of action sports competition, Chad also counts numerous nominations and awards in some of the most prestigious BMX events worldwide. His strength and style are the ingredients to his young career’s success, and his personality is the cherry on top. When riding, every move and every trick feels as light and fun as can be, even when he is challenging his own limits, or gravity’s.” – Swatch
