In The Raw // 2-Hip Thrasherland K.O.V. // 1991

If this contest doesn’t get you pumped on vert riding i don’t know what will. There is vert royalty in this mixed in with some awesome underground hero’s you don’t get to see much like Gary Laurent ruling this ramp on his Free Agent & the elusive Greg Guillotte killing it like he only can throwing down wild variations and nothing airs like they were nothing!

So many awesome riders in this video! Greg Guillotte, Mat Hoffman, Dino Deluca, Chris Potts, Ron Wilkerson, Bob Kohl, Leigh Ramsdell, Dave Mirra, Jay Miron, Eben Krakau, Dennis Mccoy, Rick Thorne, Gary Laurent, even more more pro’s and a handful of Am’s.

*Some one emailed me this footage months ago and it took forever to get it to work. The file was corrupt so at some point the audio gets looped but does not effect the footage. You just may here the same announcing twice.
Also if you are the one who emailed me this footage you did not send a name so i could credit you. Thank you again for the awesome footage!*

Caleb Ruecker & Sean ‘Fish’ Hoskins // Goods BMX // S.O.S. // 2008

Since Youtube decided to take down one of the my early GoodBMX video’s i decided to post up a few dope parts that the songs were not flagged. Caleb & Fish were on a tear in the early 2000’s and i was stoked to be able to get clips of them in the S.O.S. video.

Chester Blacksmith // Goods BMX // S.O.S. // 2008

I recently realized that the Goods BMX video S.O.S. had been taken down on youtube due to a song in it. This Chester part is far to awesome to not be available for people to see so enjoy Chet in what i think was his only full part he put out while riding for Solid Bikes.

Future Thoughts // American Freestyler, August 1988 // Part 2

30 years goes by fast! I thought it might be interesting to share the full text from this article titled Freestyle:  How Much Radder Can it Get? –  to review what the authorities of the late 80s thought the future might hold for freestyle. (Keep in mind, this was originally written for an audience of 13 year olds!)  If you read this, or part 1 here, I’d really love to hear your feedback below in the comments or on our social media for this topic.

101 Freestyle Tricks Part 2 // Psycho Version // 1988

101 freestyle tricks part 2 is a staple of any 80’s bmx viewing!
With great riding from so many Pro’s and Am’s at the time and the AFA Velodrome footage of Mike Dominguez coming so very close to the first 900′ this is a must watch!

A Look Back // American Freestyler, August 1988 // Part 1

Thirty years ago this month . . . American Freestyler (formerly Freestyle Spectacular) was a short-lived Daisy/Hi-Torque Publication.  This was the same publishing company owned by Roland Hinz – who also published BMX Plus! (along with other magazines with titles like:  RC Car RacingATV Action!, and Dirt Wheels).  It’s assumed that Daisy/Hi-Torque printed American Freestyler in 1987 as an attempt to capitalize on the freestyle boom of the late 80s.  Since they were already covering similar content in BMX Plus!, American Freestyler simply removed the racing– likely a way of marketing twice as many advertisements to already over-extended BMX brands, as well as selling a few more magazines to hardcore freestylers.  CHECK OUT MORE »

This is shaping up to be another comprehensive project about the history of our much loved ‘sport’ and includes new content on the Dirt Bros, The Curb Dogs, a King of Dirt history, the Odyssey, Haro, Vision Street Wear, and Airwalk stories, origins of street riding and much much more.
