New World Disorder 10 Berrecloth Trailer 4

KILLER trailer for New World Disorder 10 (the last of the series) featuring Darren Berrecloth. Gotta say, at Crankworx Colorado, he looked like a new man, riding strong and doing some cool, unique stuff. If that decline cover of his with the massive lookback is any indication, his part should be pretty epic.
