Chase killing it while riding to Public Enemy?! Sign me up! Sounds like the perfect combo of early 90’s perfection!
Mike Daily has been working on this project for a bit and I wanted to help bring some light to it! Mike has headed project’s from “Aggro Mag” to being the editor of ‘Go,The Riders Manual”.
This project is a fictional story that Mike has written along with some awesome extra goodies! I’m really not sure how Mike got the model car replicas made from the car that was used in the first 2-Hip Meet the Street Contest. He got it spot on!!! I love seeing projects like this so head over and preorder one!!!ORDER YOUR COPY HERE

In the early 90’s Ruben was an all terrain machine! Flat, ramps, Street. He did it all! That beat up Skyway Street Beat with all of his GT parts on it looks perfect!
Sean Yarroll holds down the last rider section in Dirt Bros Cheese for a very good reason – Heavy music, heavier riding, and RAD style that could only be from the 90s. It’s no surprise that I’ve had a dozen people ask me about when we were going to finally post Yarroll’s section. Check out the video (by Fred Ansfield) and then click below to see a few photos of Sean. CHECK OUT MORE
Huge chasm jumps, 720s on street, beyond clicked turndowns, mag wheels, and a Christian punk rock soundtrack alerting listeners to the ills of masturbation – Brad Blanchard’s section from Dirt Bros Cheese was destined to be a much talked about classic. If you want to see some flat-out, hardcore BMX riding, check this one out now! We’ve also shared a few of our favorite riding photos of Brad. CHECK OUT MORE
Underground San Diego shredder, Manuel De La Cruz, earned national notoriety for being the first documented rider to grind down a legit handrail without brakes and without wearing any pads. At the time, most riders were still used to seeing the pros wear a full face helmet or at least full pads to double-peg a rail. So, when Manuel started bombing huge handrails with out safety gear, it was pretty shocking.
While he may have been known for hitting big rails, Manuel also got down on ramps, dirt, and had some impressive flatland moves. I’ve gotten to hang out with Manuel a few times since I moved to San Diego, and have always found him to be a generous, humble, and likeable guy who is still really stoked on BMX. Using “Egypt, Egypt” from the 1984 album On the Nile by Egyptian Lover was a stroke of genius, and helped make Manuel’s section one of the more memorable ones from Cheese. Enjoy!!

Aaron Krueger was a regular at the 2-Hip and B.S. contests, and between 1992 and 1994 he consistently placed in the top 5 of the beginner, and then intermediate class, of every contest he attended. Not an easy thing to do. Anyway, here is one of San Diego’s low-key shredders getting down 90s style on some ramps, street, and dirt. Check it out!
