My big day...

Corey works for the local "alternative" paper, Metropulse and they did a BMX article in this week's issue. With that I got two full color pics of me riding in there. I have never gotten any kind of coverage whatsoever, with the exception of Joe Rich running a letter I wrote to him about the T-1 video on his site and Crandall putting a pic of Bobby and I drinking beer on the FBM site. But nothing with me actually on the bike. So this, while it isn't a riding publication or something, is still pretty neat for me.

Also, while riding the park today, we ran into fellow BMX'er and power forward for the University of Tennessee basketball team Wayne Chism. He was awesome, funny, rode my bike and generally made the day of a few of us there.

Chizz roasting it over the fly box...


Chizz and Andy Cornell. Andy took off for the moon shortly afterwards...


Chizz and I. He rode the T-1 and was stoked on the chrome. Fuck yeah.


Biggs did a fucking gnarly tailwhip into the new sod. It was sick and he took it pretty hard a couple of times. His girlfriend was visibly shaken on one crash, so it was a little nuts. But damn, he nailed it.


TO THE MOON!

I don't know what it is about your camera, but it makes me feel like I don't know what the hell I am doing!! Sorry for the two fudged shots....

I still don't know what to think about him at the park, riding a bike and clearing the flybox....what an experience.
