Photo of the Day: Scott Powell at the Bikes Over Baghdad Tour 8

Have you heard of Bikes Over Baghdad before? It's an action sports show for the US troops in Iraq: "Inspired by their older brother Gabriel, a veteran of the Iraq war, entertainers and musicians Zach and Christian Schauf have traveled numerous times into warzones and military bases with their band to entertain the troops. But in 2009 they came up with an idea for America's servicemen and women that had never been done before: an annual high-flying, adrenalin-pumping action sports show with some of the most accomplished BMX riders in the world. Each year they risk their lives in the name of patriotic entertainment to captivate the soldiers and provide a much needed distraction. They call it, Bikes Over Baghdad."

Besides a bunch of street riders and Catfish on the mic Scott Powell is trying to keep the soldiers entertained. Right now the whole crew is back in Iraq for their 8th tour. There are regular photo updates on Facebook and Instagram where we found the one above. They even released a film about the previous tours. You can find more information on the official website.

There is also a lot of footage online, for example the Teaser and some riding footage of Scott.
