Don’t miss this latest episode of Epicly Later’d!!
He may be more well known for his remarkably creative skateboarding, music video, and Hollywood related endeavors, but Spike Jonze was a BMXer. I think the word they used back then was “dual,” meaning to both bike and skate. Nevertheless, his contributions to freestyle in the late 80s and early 90s were a big part of why BMX Action, Freestylin’, and GO looked so incredible during those years. Check out the video and click below to see a few of our favorite photos taken by (and taken of) Spike. CHECK OUT MORE »
I knew when I was posting up the footage we had of the 1989 2-Hip Meet The Street Finals I had to dig up the magazine article from the contest. From the dueling turndowns, Trent Chavez’s dope style on the cover and one of the last Craig Grasso photo’s that I can remember being in a magazine. It was all brought together by Go!, and Spike’s amazing photography.
In 1989 2-Hip had the Meet The Street finals in Salem, Oregon. Our good friend Anthony Tangelin was there filming and we got our hands on that footage almost 30 years later! The video features riding from Ron Wilkerson, Blyther, Craig Campbell, The Dirt Bros, Mike Krnaich, Dino Deluca, Gary Pollack, Eddie Roman, Joe Johnson, Dave Voelker & more!
So sit back and enjoy this! Voelker by the way absolutely destroys the comp!
Bruce Crisman’s part in the Dig 25 video. Bruce was on Haro at the time and was spending his summers riding Woodward and shredding Burnside, Tron, and Lincoln City when he was back home in Oregon.
A few cameo clips from Justin Inman are sprinkled through the part!
Dig BMX just posted up our Podcast with Trevor Meyer from a few years back that got lost on soundcloud.
In this older episode Shad caught up with Trevor Meyer while he was on tour, and with a little help from Micah Kranz and Chris Morse, talked about painting Prince’s house, life on the road, why he always rides the biggest bikes. And of course, his dominance of flatland contests during the 90’s. So go ahead and hit play!
