BSN and Ronnie Coleman on American Chopper
April 1, 2008
Can you picture eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman piloting a chopper? We can, provided it's one that doesn't fly. Coleman got that chance recently when he visited Orange County Chopper Headquarters in Newburgh, New York.
Coleman's trip was made possible by Bio-Engineered Supplements and Nutrition, Inc (BSN). The supplement company recently signed on to be featured on the popular TV show American Chopper. The episode will document the building of a custom fabrication one-of-kind BSN-themed chopper bike, and is scheduled to air on TLC on Thursday, April 24, 2008.
"WeÂre very excited to be appearing on American Chopper, and to have the opportunity to showcase BSN as a company and some of our incredibly effective products like N.O.-XPLODEÂ to a huge TV audience," BSN Director of Marketing James Tracy said. "This episode is going to be a real treat for American Chopper fans. IÂve seen some of the footage from the initial filming and itÂs setting up for one of the most entertaining episodes of American Chopper ever! People are going to love it!"
FLEX magazine was able to capture some exclusive behind-the-scenes shots while filming took place. With the eight-time Mr. Olympia Coleman present, the Orange County Chopper crew decided to put together an impromptu OCC-style strongman competition, with some thoroughly entertaining events like the ÂChopper-Tire Discus ThrowÂ and the ÂEngine-Block Relay RaceÂ.
Be sure to tune into the BSN Bike Build episode of American Chopper on April 24th, 2008 at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
