Following Fillmore – Episode 3: Riding for Rocco

04/04/2013 @ 3:03 pm, by Jensen Beeler4 COMMENTS


Episode 3 of Following Fillmore finds us out in the California desert, as Chris takes part in a track day to benefit paralyzed road racer Rocco Horvath. Joining Fillmore at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway are some familiar AMA paddock names like Jason Pridmore, Josh Hayes, Melissa Paris, James Rispoli, and Benny Solis. If you are wondering what professional riders do in their spare time, here is your chance.

I have to say, in the three episodes we have shown so far of Following Fillmore (click to watch Episode 1 & Episode 2), this latest installment has to be a staff favorite here at A&R. Not only do we get a real human moment from Chris towards the end of the video, but we get to see his rationalization on the inevitability of crashing and possibly getting seriously hurt from the sport he loves. Something to chew on — good stuff.

    I’m liking the “Following Fillmore” series, and think it’s great that they did this for Rocco.

    But, Chris, you’ve got a great personality and you’re a handsome guy–lose the nose ring. It does nothing but detract from your personality.

    Or maybe it helps him express it. Different strokes, dude. Different strokes.
