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!
