I might not be as old as some of the guys that showed up for last Saturday’s 40 years of BMX gathering in Long Beach, but still so fascinated with our BMX history and being able to have a nice chat with a few of BMX’ legendary pioneers I looked up to as a kid, is a nice treat on its own. There have been more then a few old skool meetings these past few years, including the Hall of Fame induction in San Diego and the (hopefully) annual Woodward West reunion, so it was nice to see Scot Breithaupt giving something back to the BMX community and perhaps educate some of the younger riders out there (seat posts were indeed longer then 3 inches at one point in time).
Vans had the booth setup to hand out free shoes/ shirts/ stickers/ etc, which was all gone within 2 hours time of course…who doesn’t want free shit?
I think the photos speak for themselves and all together it was a nice 3 hours before everyone got ready to go on the Giant Get a clue
Last week we did an interview with Scot Breithaupt about his upcoming event in California. He's been working overtime to get things sorted and asked us to post the info on the site once again.

FATBMX: After all these years of BMX involvement was there ever a time when you said, it's enough!? Scot: Nope, never. I love BMX and all it’s aspects even more to be honest. It just grows and grows.. sometimes sideways, but nonetheless, grows…evolves, changes like our lives do, sometimes good, sometimes bad.. I have ventured into other
It wasn’t until a week or so before we left for the USA that we found out that there was a BMX Hall Of Fame banquet taking place in San Diego on Thursday, a day after we arrived in the same city. If I remember correctly, these Hall Of Fame dinners usually took place around the ABA Grands in Oklahoma but moved to San Diego last year. This actually goes well with the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup that kicked off the next day in nearby Chula Vista giving the OS racers that came to the banquet a chance to check out the race in the same trip.
