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?
