answer the question of who the rider on that page was.
Jared filed the images into four sections basically. The New England section brought back some memories from exchanging 'zines with Kieran Chapman of The 'Zine, who, I believe, was from Minnesota. Jared then moved to California where we have also spent some time before he moved to Woodward East, and then Oregon. It's a pity Jared didn't travel to Europe much during his time as a BMX photographer so we might still have to dig into the photo pile to publish something at some point.
Much respect to Jared for putting in all the work. The book turned out really nice. I'll flip through it again before giving it back to Paul.
