Brian Deegan’s Painstaking Docufilm Disposable Hero Now Available on DVD!

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 29, 2006) — Freestyle motocross icon Brian Deegan has been through the ringer — and the winner’s circle — time and time again, experiencing everything from X Games fame to a busted spleen all in the course of a single season. Now, hear from the Metal Mulisha leader, himself, in Disposable Hero on DVD, the new film documenting the literal ups and downs of Deegan’s life as an inspiring athlete and action sports idol.

Distributed by Berkela Films and VAS Entertainment, Disposable Hero follows the infamous Deegan through the struggles and rewards that accompany the freestyle motocross sport and lifestyle. Guinness World Record holder for most motocross medals won by an individual, Deegan has claimed more X Games and Gravity Games victories than any other competitor, has appeared in several motion pictures and on the cover of numerous industry and mainstream publications, and has accumulated more x-rays, pins, rods, casts, gashes and screws than many of his fellow freestyle motocross athletes. Indeed, Disposable Hero shows how one rider’s ambitions translate into both triumph and injury — meanwhile making for a truly motivating, must-see movie for both adults and kids of all ages. MSRP: $27.97.

Disposable Hero is currently available online for pre-order through VAS Entertainment and Berkela Films at with orders shipping Friday, December 8. The DVD will also be available in core shops through Berkela Films beginning Monday, December 11. For more information on the film or to view the movie trailer, visit
