Old School Sundays with Simon Tabron

Very unfortunate and extremely sad news broke recently on one of the best vert riders in the history of BMX that I grew up riding with, Simon Tabron. This weeks OSS is dedicated to Simon.

Here are the details courtesy of Chad Kagy, who had organised a Go Fund Me to help Simon and his family –

“Simon Tabron is a beloved 46-year-old husband, father and decorated pro-BMXer, having earned 8 World Championship Titles and 20 X Games medals. On September 7, 2020 his family’s world was shattered when he suffered a cardiac arrest and, days later, a stroke. As we write this, Simon has been moved from ICU on life support to neurological division as doctors race to understand the cause of these catastrophic events and the long term effect they will have on Simon’s ability to speak, walk, and work.”

Old School Sundays – AFA Masters Ohio 1988 / R.I.P Park Carter

This week the sad news, Park Carter had passed away broke all over social media. Park was way ahead of the time during the 80’s with his riding, and what he brought to the table. I hit up Todd Carter for any Park Carter to do a dedication to the man, and he came back with this absolute gem from the archives, that features an amazing run from Park Carter at the 18:31 mark, and also so much other good footage to boot from the likes of Danny Meng, Ruben Castillo, Bill Neumann, and many many more. Go watch that run from Park, amazing!

Old School Sundays with Jason Hassell

One of my biggest inspirations growing up in BMX, was Jason Hassell! Jason could do it all, and do it with style and smooth as glass to boot. Jason gave me my first big break putting me on the Hutch team back in 1987. Here is Jason’s BMX Beat run from 1987, great run for the time right here. Nowadays Jason is a Hollywood actor, enjoy this one.
