The 9-episode new TV reality series aims to take viewers inside the world of custom bike building with 5 shops in the Valley Of The Sun (Phoenix) in a build-off competition for the most radical/badass Bagger.
The 5 builders are: John Shope (Dirty Birds Concepts), Len Edmonson who moved from Canada to Phoenix to be in the show (Azzkikr Customs), Paul Yaffe (Baggers Nation), Kody McNew (Voodoo Customs) and Brian Jenkins (Hatred Customs)
With this new series, the History Channel expects to grab the market on the genre with the production encouraging each builder to show a big ego, to brag about his own creative talent and to bash the work of his competitors. As you already know, TV will do whatever it takes to build a large audience, in this case bikers and non-bikers… The 1st episode of ”Biker Battleground Phoenix” is tonight Tuesday July 1st at 10ET/9C. In parallel to the show, you can enter for a chance to win a custom bagger from John Shope’s Dirty Bird Concepts. Register at Biker Battleground Phoenix Sweepstakes. If you watch the show, tell me tomorrow morning what you think of it. (all photography @ History Channel courtesy to Cyril Huze)
