You know it’s going to be a good day when you go to answer emails and you have a bunch of pictures sent to you from Kevin Martin! Kevin was around during some of the most iconic times in BMX.
“When I look back on my bmx path I realize how good I had it. I started at New England comps riding ramps and flatland, rode flat/street in NYC on the weekends, made it to CA to the center of it all and became a half pipe rider, rolled out to Texas and rode 9th street for a few years and now I get to travel from time to time to see all the guys I rode with and re-live the glory days!”
Check out the gallery and if your jonezing for more stuff like this check out the Wall2Wall Book! So much good stuff in there!
