In june 1986 my dad and I visited the 'European Challenge Cup', a major BMX race here in Holland. It was at an amusement park called 'Ponypark Slagharen'. Nearby the track, Ron Wilkerson [Haro] and Martin Apparijo [GT] did some freestyle demo's. There were also a few riders from France.
Vintage "Old School" BMX of Northern California. Old 8mm movies that either I, or my mother took of me in the late 70's and early 80's in Northern California. I grew up in San Jose, Ca. and started racing there at Hamman Park.
