At first I thought Brocephus was simply standing in the crosswalk, but no, he was waiting for the green in the #2 lane of 7th Street.
And off he goes, looking like an Apollo astronaut exploring the Moon:
Forward, ever forward…
(I think this shot is from Frisco. There’s a better photo what pops up on Google, with beefcake too, but it’s actually from Indiana.)
All the deets:

IDK. I’d need somebody to spell out all the rules.
Anyway, this skateboarder was prolly a tad too aggressive to be in compliance with Frisco’s rules, whatever they are…
I’d wondered why I hadn’t heard of any coverage of this one.
It was kind of a nothingburger. See?
I don’t know, if Red Bull wants to start shutting down streets to promote itself, I think it could come up with some better ideas.
Here are just a few. Hey RB, try to be more like this:
In March 2009, Public Works initiated the conceptual planning phase for the skate park by meeting with the community and the designer, Newline Skateparks, Inc. Guided by community input, Newline presented three design concepts to the community in April 2009. Meeting attendees requested the designer fuse selected features from each concept into one final design and in May 2009, Newline presented the final skate park design to the community.”
So who says there’s no culture out in the Avenues?
