Today is Kerry’s 40th birthday! To celebrate let’s take a trip down memory lane at one of his most memorable sections on the Standard Stylecats video! Happy Birthday Kerry!
Let’s take a lil’ intermission from all the action at the Fise contest. Right about now I am working on a Kevin Jones interview, and Kenny Lund happened to send this nice throwback edit from 2002 in. Always a treat to see The K ride! Enjoy this one if you never saw it before…
Great throwback contest run from 1989, King of the Courts. New Jersey! One of my favourite riders of all time, Ross Smith! Classic style and another great upload from AJ – Habnad!
Born in Costa Rica, Manuel Prado is living out his BMX dream to come to the USA and become a pro rider. Working in the pineapple fields of Costa Rica, Manuel makes the move to America to train and help the other riders in Costa Rica.
Yesterday a great bit of history made it’s way onto the internet, thanks to AJ @Habnad. Kevin Jones’ ground breaking run from the AFA Masters Bristol PA 1989. This was the first time anyone publicly saw the hitchhiker and the backpacker, not to mention as Brett Downs quoted yesterday, “95 percent of his run and his tricks, who else can say that?”. Do yourself a favour, whether your old school, new school whatever labels you chose, watch the crowd reaction when Jones pulls out the backpacker at around 3:58. This is without a doubt one of the influential moments in BMX. Thank you Kevin Jones and thank you AJ for the re-upload in better quality! This is golden!
Bobby Carter over at the Diversion Lab just dropped the latest throwback section from his infamous Diversion TV videos. Spring is here now, but I am sure we can all relate to wanting to escape cold temperatures and get some riding time done! DTV catch up with Maik Dettmer, Stefan Brokisch, two riders from Europe that make the trip over to Southern California to enjoy some good riding weather. And last but not least, Dane Beardsley over in Michigan before he moved to Athens, Georgia.
The Diversion series were so dope! Bobby just started releasing individual parts on his new youtube channel, check out this part with Neston Favela. The mix of narrative and riding is perfect!
Pete Brandt aged 43 yesterday, can’t resist but post this amazing section from the early 90′s, Reality Tv Part 2 (Pete’s section starts at 1:00). Many of you might have seen this, so take a trip down memory lane. So much style, and so much progression for the time, and look at the pegs almost half way up the fork leg!
