We're Not Dead Yet

Not much has been happening. It appears everyone has given up on updating this blog. Rumor has it that there is a Jam/BBQ/Potential Video Premiere Oct. 4th. Paul has been enjoying picnics in Delmont inbetween learning feeble grinds and wallrides. Stay tuned, but keep your expectations low.

Handfull of photos

Slacking in the photo department. This year, we have ventured to NYC and Knoxville and a few other areas, so here's what I've been sitting on.
 Adam stopped by Delmont and did a trick or two.
 Don't hate the photo, hate the photographer.

 Jr hadn't ridden the subway before. He was excited.

 Kev Little putting dick to bars.

 A picture of my bottom for the ladies.

Delmont Spring Jam 2014

That time of year again, where the weather is finally nice enough to enjoy some bmx and outdoor eating. The wind was blowing pretty steady through out the afternoon Sunday, but it wasn't enough to stop guys from shredding the ramps, which included a new 6 ft quarter. Chris Pryzwara didn't leave any blank walls, can canning and tail whipping his way around the course. In between doing 540's and alley oop 540's, he decided to 180 the second box jump for good measure. J.t. Loteck Double Whipped the new 6 ft quarter on what i saw to be first try, and that was before the food was even done being cooked. Brett Vitale did a Ruben wall ride on one of the many accessible trees in Delmont Skatepark. It was silly… There was an intense game of BikeDice that went on longer than it should've. I wasn't paying much attention in the end, but i believe Frank Lynn edged out Kev Little for a narrow victory. I wish i took more photos, but perhaps next time. Mark your calendars, the next one is gonna be a big one. Saturday, Oct 4th, I will officially be joining team 30+ in the bmx community.
 This is for you, America.
 Despite falling a bunch in October, I had a lot of fun doing this double peg, and decided I'd do it again
 JJ and the man himself, Mr. Ed's Bike Shop
When he wasn't dropping and shattering unopened beers, Kenny was eating hot dogs.
 Billy Brown showed up just to eat.
 Vic Behm took a break from whooping ass at the bmx track to come tail whip the box jumps and gap into the wall ride. i break his balls a lot, but he's a good dude.
 At dusk, a vert wall contest began. Kenny set the bar pretty high.
 Frank Lynn may have won everything yesterday
 We determined Kev Little tied Frank and after someone almost went OTB, it was called at that. Take my word for it, the timing was a bit off in these photos.
If you've ever ridden this, you realize this is stupid high...

Amateuthour went to Florida to escape the freeze and get some new year bike riding done. We've never been much on media and filming when it comes to trips, one because most of us don't really give a shit if somethings filmed or not, and two, because we come on these trips to ride, ride a lot. When you drive 9 hours the last thing you want to do is spend time setting up shots and filming.
       Lots of riding happened, day one consisted of the Ormond beach and Daytona beach parks. No pics, not a damn one..... maybe its the change in altitude, but none of us could pull a thing Saturday. Who cares? We had an Oceanside room and an empty bar at the end of the night, complete with a soft tile floor bed for some of us. But you don't go on these trips for comfort, you know the drill.
    Sunday was Kona day, and what a day it was. 70 degrees, Hungry Howies pizza, and an empty snake run is all you need to forget about the tile bed, the cramped 600 mile all goes away as soon as you hit the first berm. I did take time to shoot some pics this day. You're welcome
    Monday was another sick park and a midday gorilla run through the streets of Jacksonville. Security got the best of us on most of the spots, but who cares. You don't come on these trips to "clock footage" if you do then I feel sad for you. Getting kicked out is part of the life, and it led to many funny encounters with J-villes best wackos roaming the streets.  Good times were had, maybe next time this slack bmx blog will bring along a fake media guy and things will get shot.....but I doubt it.

Mike Paton switch can feeble. Switch can feeble? I don't know what to call this

Kevin Little went full blast and jumped the middle wedge...theres a takeoff somewhere back there


this is the gnarliest ramp ive ever seen. you wont air this

this pic does not show you how mammoth this ramp is. Dave Friemuth ice picked it in road fools 5. I was stoked to get my wheels over the vans board.

Van Homan's world famous snake river canyon jump. Go see it in person,

Happy Festivus.

I am posting two table top photos on a Wednesday rather than on table top Friday. I was really pumped on the first one and completely forgot that it existed, like I do most things. I like both of these so much that they just can't wait. This is called amateur hour for a reason. We do most things on a whim and often under the effects of alcohol. JR is keeping it nice and flat for 2014.

More to come soon from the 2014 Polar Vortex Florida trip.

Tom McFillin

Clearing out the VX clips this week. Here's the long awaited Tom P footage. Some clips date back to Christmas of 2010 and some are even older than that. Enjoy and buy this guy a beer, you know it won't go to waste.

Sean Sanderlin

Been riding a bunch with this kid. If you see him, make sure you break his balls, because kids these days need it. He's got a few maneuvers. Like most edits nowadays, you'll probably want to mute it...
