Brian Kachinsky: Definition of Pro

Brian Tunney March 23, 2011 ESPN

DK/etnies pro Brian Kachinsky is one of the few riders on the BMX scene that doesn't fall into a "this" or "that" type of pro classification. He competes (in 2010, he won X Games Bronze in BMX Street), he films wild video parts and he even does demos throughout the world (including the Bikes Over Baghdad).

Kachinsky Favors Cookies and Cream

Nick Ferreira June 2012 ESPN

A few weeks ago on NPR, sports writer Frank Deford commented on the celebrity status of many professional basketball players. Included in his commentary was a satirical look into just how "weird" San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan is... I see DK and etnies pro Brian Kachinsky as a Tim Duncan of sorts.

Brian Tunney May 2012 ESPN

Over the winter, DK/etnies pro Brian Kachinsky called me and relayed plans he had for a new indoor project he was working on in his adopted hometown of Chicago, Ill.

Interview: Brian Kachinsky

Nuno Oliveira June 2011 Defgrip

I guess, if there’s one thing I know about BK though, is that he eats, sleeps & breaths BMX. He’s in it for the right reasons. It shows in everything he does & how much time & passion he devotes to bike riding. I honestly don’t think a moment goes by without him thinking about his bike or things that relate to his bike.

Today I am proudly unveiling a new website in conjunction with a private facility in my hometown of Chicago, Illinois.

Handrails - with Roche, Kachinsky & Harrington

Jeff Z January 2011 Transworld

To the average person, handrails are nothing more than a really common object in any urban landscape and they don’t pay much attention to them. Besides people who have trouble walking on stairs, the only people who seem to even use handrails use them in ways in which they weren’t intended for.

Edit: Brian Kachinsky in Baghdad, Iraq

Brian Kachinsky January 2010 ESPN

BMX has allowed me to live inside the history books that once just weighed down my backpack as I rode my bike school. A few years ago on an etnies trip, we hopped a fence and rode a bank-to-rail in front of Hitler's former airport in Berlin, which was crazy.
