Eddie Fiola // Last Runs At Pipeline Skatepark // Upland Ca. // 1989

While going through some contest footage I ran across this footage of Eddie at Pipeline. This looks like it was days before the park was destroyed. No fences, no heavy session, just nothing. It’s kind of eerie. I was really hoping there was going to be more on the tape I found but there wasn’t. Eddie definitely was one of the rulers there and I would be so curious to see how BMX evolved if Pipeline could have made it through the early 90’s!

How do you think BMX would be different if it stayed?

PDXBMX Files #2 // 1999 // Portland Street & Nelson B.C. Contest

Digging through my tapes last night and I ended up pulling out this jem. I’m pretty sure this was the first tape we started filming Blueprint on. It has clips from the old Salem indoor, the Spokane Washington park, the Punisher pool, Portland streets and then it ends with footage I had from one the infamous Nelson contests!
This tape was pretty jacked so I couldn’t pull everything I would have liked to and some of the clips have glitches. It is still fun to watch and a super fun time to be in the NW!

Riders are Brennan Britton, Tommy Graven, Travis Fontaine, Daniel Randall, Justin Inman, Eric Walter, Shane Youngren, Twin Finn, Jeremy Coft, Shad Johnson, Dave Thom, Kyle, Jeremy Davis, Dustin Guenther, Andrew Ryser, Curtis Easterbrook, John Bristol, Jarrod Creally, Toast, Dave Osato, & Jay Miron.

Bruce Crisman // Podcast

Bruce Crisman // Snakebite Dig BMX // Podcast

I sat down at home in Portland with Bruce Crisman, a genuine street pioneer who not only heavily pushed the progression of freecoaster riding, but was also an XGames champion. Bruce and I have been close friends for over 20 years so I was more than excited for us to have this conversation and help share his story with you.

Pick It Apart // What School Are You? A Conversation On The Era’s Of BMX.

Mat Hoffman

So I wanted to open a conversation about the titles we give each generation of BMX. I know it really doesn’t matter in the long run but I am a BMX nerd and I like to go over and analyze everything.

This is how I break down each generation and the reasoning behind it. I’m not going to crazy on my descriptions because I’m hoping to get some good dialogue in the comments. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it and if you agree or disagree.
