FBM Brawlin’ At the Belmar Round 2

Fuck! Round 2 of FBM‘s Brawlin’ at the Belmar was an absolute shit show! I remember being there and thinking to myself that someone was going to seriously die. I think they got hit with a bunch of rain just a few days before the contest and it wreaked absolute havoc on the lip. Nothing like hitting a giant jump with a soft spot right in the middle of the lip. I’m pretty sure only like three kids in the am class actually cleared the damn thing. They wised up and slapped a sheet of plywood over it for the pro contest and shit got real wild. I’m so stoked Props decided to put this gem online!

The timing of this Dig article is funny to me. Just the other day I was going through my closet and came across my old Case shirt. The shirt is way too small for me but I’ve held onto it because it represents a cool piece of BMX media history. Case the magazine has been gone for close to four years now and seemingly gone with it was the man behind the whole thing, Mike Netley. After a bit of a break from BMX, Mike is back in the woods with shovel and camera in hand. Make your way over to the Dig site to find out what he’s been up to during his hiatus and what he has planned for the future.
