Al Dimino sent in a report about the Animal jam that happened last weekend and promotes his own jam at the same time. We're fine with that.
I was at the animal jam yesterday in NYC and it was packed with riders. A great turn out and show of support for bmx and animalbikes. I rode the banks for a while and then headed out to Brooklyns owls head park to try to beat the heat. A 95 degree day was causing us to break a sweat just standing. I was with my good friend Ricky Ratt Vigil from so-cal who is visiting for the summer and being his first time in the big apple we toured the big apple and showed him some sites. Rick enjoyed being at the jam and riding owls head park for sure.
Owls head will also be having a jam on October 4th as we were told by the parks keeper. I also will be hosting the bmxinvasion bike battle on August 27th at skate 57 park in Hackettstown NJ. This is also going to be a memorable event as Ralph from animal will be presenting a memorial plaque in memory of the late great bmx rider Joe Tiseo. Lots of prizes and good fun is in store for this event. Over 22 co-sponsors for this event have showed their support and we all appreciate their generosity,too.
Anyone interested about the event check www.bmxinvasion.com for details and younger riders can get a print out of the waiver form available on my site. Hope to see you all at skate 57. -AL-
