  1. Had just gotten outta my taxi , to my hotel room , directly after getting off my flight to the 2017 Flatland Voodoo Jam , in New Orleans . Ive been to 3 of em ! Thanks , Scott Obrien ! Anyway….. I get COMPLETLY lost pedaling , like through the hood , haha , a ward like area , Im talking like , COMPLETLY lost , haha………EVERY project building , street , EVERYTHING seemed to look the same . I was basically pedaling my bike …..AND heavy ass back pack ,with ALL my stuff in it , in circles for like 40 minutes , haha. I was looking for the pre-jam spot , being very late getting to New Orleans , cause my dumb ass flew in about 13 hours late , haha ! Im pedaling around seeing, saying hi to people on their porch like steps , taking in the sights . I wasn’t stressing , I just figured , hmmmm…I guess I will find the pre-jam spot eventually………THEN who randomly pedals up right behind me , ALSO on their way to the pre-jam riding spot / session…….Gonzallo Belliante …..and THIS cat , right here…..Benjamin Hudson ! The three of us met , chatted , and had a dope conversation pedaling , then finally finding the spot ! We all had a really rad time , all of us , riding in a jam circle , taking turns , exchanging combos on our bikes , pushing/ cheering each other on while Benjamin Zaragosa was ripping links on his bike as well AND filming some absolute BANGING lines that Hudson was just SLLLAAAAAAMMMMMING DOWN , like back to back !!!! Benjamin Hudson basically SHUT DOWN the entire pre-jam session in 2017, with his fresh , heated , original links ……he was just knocking out ALL his sh-t , as if it were the actual FINALS of the Flatland Voodoo Jam …….THAT day , haha. Guess what ?! He did just THAT again the next day , just THREW DOWN during prelims , and of course during the pressure cooking FINALS ! I personally had him poised to WIN the finals , just cause of the difficulty , originality , and ..bruuuuuuuuv……his FLOW during his links ! Like NO other in the friggin game , I tell ya ! He goes through things like his signature X-leg side packer pivot / whip to cross forward pumping fire haul , turbine ,switching feet , to turbine whiplash , things like THAT crazy teched out transition , he just FLOOOOOOOWWWW through stuff like THAT with so much grace / style ……you almost FORGET just how HARD the stuff hes doing in a link really is…… youre watching him go through a link , in real time ! Hahaha, but THATS the thing that , to me , makes him an ELITE rider of the ever progressing , relentless wave of riding in flatland bmx ! I love what hes brought to the table in this sport , hell , bruv……Im STILL watching his battle between him and Salvador , in that HEATED bmx event in Chile , back in , I think 2015 ? As Effraim ALWAYS say…….NO ONE moves around the bike like Hudson ! I agree , TIMES 7 . ANOTHER aggro pick for an interview , Dusty ! Props , amigo ! Oh ,yeah , Dusty ….I haven’t forgot about that Masato Ito footage , we chatted about from THIS years Flatland Voodoo Jam ! I will upload , tag ya , campeon ! Hudson is a cool cat , as well , friendly guy . I ll just quote Art Thomason , while we both watched Hudsons runs during the FINAL @ 2017 Flatland Voodoo Jam ….Art nodded , pointed @ Benjamin , upon him nailing his second combo , involving a Cobain roll , frame whip / pivot , ALL THE WAY AROUND , passed to a cross fire haul , MID-LINE ……..Art nooded to me , pointed @ Hudson , and said……..NOW THATS THE SH-T , RIGHT THERE , THAT TYPE OF RIDING ! I agree FULLY…………….

Gracias AGAIN , Dusty ………..and by the way , Dusty ……..upon seeing some of YOUR OWN combos recently on F.B. , YOU rip as well , on a bike , campeon ! You SHOULD upload / share a lot more of YOUR riding , man………..some REALLY sweet turbine , whiplash , switch hand steam , Dave dusted , Karl type , flowing links , Jefe ! I was really impressed ! Ive been riding bmx , since the Radical Rick and M.X. Mug comics section, in the back of Bmx Plus magazine , haha……ummmm, ask one of your OLD riding amigos ,about THAT , hahaha…….and I can honestly say …..for the SHORT amount of time that you’ve been riding flatland bmx , Dusty ……….youre VERY skilled , bruva ! I CANT do NONE of your stuff , haha, and that’s WITH me having been riding bmx MANY ,MANY moons , haha. RESPECT , Dusty !
