#BMXDAY news from the O town crew

Dave Brumlow and Emmitt BMX managed to get a free 3 hour session at prime time on Saturday night 7-10pm and with the rain hitting earlier in the day it was easily dry for a full session. I counted at one time 130 people on bikes. So add some early and late arrivals and spectators easily 160 people supporting #BMXDAY at Orlando skatepark. And since they added a new A frame rail and wedge, a mini sub/hip/flyout, and took out the amazing hip on the bowl in the back…it was time to get a session on it all. May have been 100% humidity but it did not stop everyone from riding the whole time. Seeing all ages is so rad and shows how big the scene is around here and we all can do cool things to support. Check out the video here will all the rippers killing it. Thanks to Emmitt and Freeburn for this edit. Heck…I even got a few clips in there popping that red @decobmx tee -Chad DeGroot @chaddegroot #decobmx @profile_racing #bmx #BMXDAY #flatland @mrbikesnboards @flbmx @emmittbmx

Voodoo Via Terry Adams.

A little update from Voodoo Jam. The event was a huge success. The crowd was packed, all the riders rode incredible, and if you go through the hashtag #voodoojam you will see your banners in sooo many post. As more of the media comes in I’ll send it your way.. But for now I wanted to send you my 2 highlights of the event. Before the finals we had 2 super kid Japanese riders do a small demo for the crowd, directly following that, I ended up giving my complete bike away to a kid that just started riding. It ended up being one of my favorite moments in my life.

Thanks again for supporting the event!

Jared Eberwein: Lots of Knotts.

“Its been about three years now, but I did my first run with All Wheel Sports show company three years ago at Knotts Berry Farm. The show isn’t your average BMX show because there is a whole lot more going on then bike riding. Gymnast, break dancer, aerialist, trampolinist, CYR wheel, BMX and more. Makes for a good show, I find myself watching at some points and forgetting to ride when I’m suppose to haha. The fact that all this is going on in the show, it calls for a couple weeks to rehears everything. From when we’re suppose to go, who’s suppose to go, what we’re going to do, etc. Once we get that all squared away, then the enjoyment of settling in with the setup starts to happen, trying new things, getting your heart pumpin, and feeding of everyone’s energy. The show is a two and a half month long show, so I’ll be there a while/I’ve been there for a bit already lol. Seems like a long time to do the same thing over and over, but the freedom of the shows is, we get to try and do different things whenever we’d like. Also the older I get time frames don’t seem to be as long as the would seem if I were 8 years younger haha. For now that’s were I’ll be and having a good time.”
