October 11th, 1994 Actual Journal Entry Went to Sheep Hills in the morning. Took my BMX bike & mountain bike. I rode with Greg Hill a bit before others showed up. Later, the guys from Haro showed up & did a photo shoot with me for a Haro ad. I mainly rode my mountain bike. I did pretty much everything on it, even flips! I'm going to be in a Haro mountain bike ad. Cool. Then rode my BMX bike & did all the same stuff. Was a good day! Came home & chilled it & then did sprints up the Edwards hill by my house. Then came home & went to the gym & got back at midnight. Ahh, a day full of goodness.
Looking Back Now I think I may have been one of the first riders to flip a mountain bike. This was well over a decade ago, back in the fall of 1994.
The Olympic track was adjusted a little bit before the UCI Supercross round 2 started earlier this week. It was a new style Helltrack and not everyone liked it. Those who like speed and big jumps loved it and so did the people who watched the event from the stands. The track is amazing and the gate drops randomly which eliminates sling shot starts or any other false ways of getting out of the gate fast.

Andreas Stevens p.k.a. dj greyboy and partner Patrick Freitas p.k.a. dj truly odd....are both hip hop dj/ producers, but also both love bmx!! 'old school' especially, and they decided that SIDEHACKS needed a revival and skateparks seemed the obvious next level. They have been having a killer time experimenting and are sharing their pics with FATBMX.
The FATBMX crew used to ride sidehacks too but that was before you were born (1978) and we're not considering a comeback like Andreas and Patrick.
