I really can't remember my first day of riding a bike without training wheels. It was a long time ago and a couple of photos show that I was little, very little. As far as I do remember it was a direct drive kids bike that I had to learn it on and somehow I managed to stay upright. Today was a day to remember. Not necessarily for myself, but for my son Philip. After spending lots of time at the local trails on the Paul's Boutique sponsored push bike, Philip discovered the Haro Z12 in the shed and asked me to take it out.
The GP Jam is happening on May 20th. The flyers says to bring your own beer and weed so don't try to score from anyone else. If you're into riding, you can enter the Punk Wall contest, Best Bowl run or even if you're not that talented, you can win the best dressed BMX-er prize.
Seems like loads of sponsors are supporting the jam. From Subrosa to UGP, Shadow to Sullen, Odyssey, Lotek, RDGBMX, the Shadow Conspiracy, Vestal, Empire mailorder, 187 and the Little Devil Brand. With all these sponsors kicking in, dressing up on the 20th isn't such a bad idea. There's a big property on the river to camp out and of course a barbeque is in the works.
The Vans Barak Invitational this summer, the 4 and 5 of August, will gather together twenty riders from all over the world, invited to spend a nice weekend in the south of France. The event will take place in the garden of the famous “barak” where Alex Dropsy is living with his roommates. The trails that are currently in the garden are being totally rebuilt to make new and fun lines, which will also be good for the big tricks. During the weekend there will also be an apnea contest in the different pools in the garden and also a “petanque” contest to involve all the international riders in boules, a traditional game from the south of France.
