Fighting off strong competition from National Team riders from all over the world BCS stakes his claim at the top table following an excellent showing at this years REAL Watersports Triple-S invitational. The judges and his Team Rider peers all agreed that Brian had submitted a great video offering for the Step-Up which along with his results so far this season ensured he took the Step-up to the International Team.

He’s been working with videographer Nate Appel on chronicling his season so far in the ‘Low-Road’. You can catch the 1st episode in the series exclusively on our website for the next couple of weeks.
