Snakebite BMX just uploaded some amazing footage form the archives, this one brought back memories! The Mysterious flatland contest in 1995, FT Dave Nourie, Takisa Yomita, Dave Hanson, Hedge Katerson, Nikola Olic, Jesse Puente, Gabe Weed, Sean McKinney, Nate Hanson, Day Smith, and many more. This section was captured from 20 Inch video magazine #6.
COVID-19 brought a lot of disruption. One major area of disruption was to Dave Nourie’s and Joe Cicman’s antics at contests.
Without the after party to share stories and rumors, the two spent hours on the phone one-on-one saying things like “yeah well Wilkerson said…” and “yeah well Brett Downs told me…”
So they decided to call some of these guys on Zoom, and have a virtual after party dinner table conversation for everyone who can’t see their friends.

Around mid-day Friday, myself and Pete set off for the long drive to Los Angeles for the 10th anniversary of the One Love Jam in Newport Beach, California. We met up with Dylan Worsley about an hour out of SF, and travelled down with Dylan. Like last year, we stayed about an hour outside of Newport Beach, in Corona at Robert Castillo’s house. Friday was a full day of travelling, and when we arrived full party mode was in full effect, we were greeted by Robert, his wife Stephanie, Ruben, EZ Chris, and Bill Nitschke.
On my search for some Old School Sunday material for this week, I came across this Team Haro video that was made in 1988, came out in 89 featuring Mat Hoffman, Rick Moliterno, Brian Blyther, Ron Wilkerson, Dave Nourie, Joe Gruttola, and Bob Haro. Some nice flat footage from Nourie and Gruttola around the 25:47, plus some cheesy 80’s music just to finish off that old school vibe.
The Poole UKBFA National contest in 1986 marked my first national contest, and an also an amazing demo by Team Haro featuring Dave Nourie, Brian Blyther, and Ron Wilkerson! Great trip down memory lane watching this one again!
