In the land of Enchantment, oh yea and Blue Meth...

As the state motto declares, New Mexico is the Land of Enchantment...

Well, if you ask anyone who has grown up there they would easily tell you the saying should run more along the lines of "The Land of Entrapment", but we won't get into that here. Since I happen to be a native New Mexican myself, I could tell you that this saying rings true. As of late, my quiet city which once remained very low key in the eyes of BMX has now become somewhat of a hot spot for peg chinks and flat tires... Despite the busy month of April with 3 separate teams coming through the state to ride and film, Mutiny found their way through Albuquerque without a hitch. Amazing bike riding by Justin Simpson, Jeff Wescott, Grant Castelluzzo, Mariano Santiago, and Andy Martinez captured by the one and only Ryan Navazio. A few real life 'Breaking Bad' interactions sealed the deal on this trip to make it one for the books, stay tuned for a #TheNaviArm production in the coming month...
