Chad Bautista Benefit Jam and Fundraiser

Chad Bautista recently suffered a severe leg and foot injury that has left him in need of a $75,000 surgery. Unfortunately Chad doesn't have health insurance and the hospital is denying him medical assistance or even the option of a payment plan. Without the surgery there is a very real possibility that Chad could lose his foot all together.

We all need to come together and do whatever we can to help Chad raise the money for this surgery. This weekend the guys at the Bourbon Trails in Sacramento, California our hosting a benefit jam to raise money. All the info on that is on the flyer above.

An online fundraiser has also been set up for Chad. I encourage you to make a donation to it if you aren't within range of the jam. Even if it's only a couple bucks, it all adds up. Let's work together and make sure Chad gets the surgery that needs. (more...)

The Kyle Amidon Memorial Jam

The guys up in New England are putting on a jam at Rye Airfield on May 4th to celebrate the life of fellow trail rider Kyle Amidon who recently passed. They have established a fund for his daughter and 100% of the proceeds raised will be going into it. Lets all come together and make this as big of a celebration of Kyle's life as possible!

"Trail riders in NH and Mass have lost a very special friend, trail rider/ builder. Kyle Amidon died last month and we want to celebrate his life and come together to raise money for his beautiful 7 year old daughter Maisey Grace Amidon. She lost her dad and we want to help Kyle in the greatest way possible by contributing money that will go into a Fund for Maisey for future use such as college or her first car.

We have been given a wonderful opportunity to use the Rye Airfield Indoor Ramp Park to hold a special event. This means 100% of all money we raise will be directly deposited into the Maisey Grace Fund. Kyle was a great friend and amazing bike rider who deserves a massive celebration. Lets get the BMX community together for this."  -Adam Spitalny

Dig And Destroy Dirt Series

Ty Callais hit me up about a series of contest that him and some buds are putting on in NorCal. Sounds like it's going to be a damn good time and something that I can definitely get behind. We'll have more info on the series as things get dialed in. Check out what Ty had to say about it below.

"My buddies and I are putting on a dirt jump contest series in Norcal this summer. Although I want as many riders as possible to show up, this series is directed more towards trail dudes that actually put in work with a shovel.  Style is gonna go further than double whip 1 footer landers here, and with a head to head format anything is possible."

Reminder: Winter Welcome Jam @ The Wheel Mill

Maybe I'm just a worrywart but I always stress out on getting hurt right before cool events and not being able to go. Up until now that has never actually happened. I was really looking forward to going to The Wheel Mill's Winter Welcome Jam but unfortunately for me a dislocated rib means that's not happening. I'm definitely bummed cause I was already positive that it was going to be a blast, and now I just saw that Chase Hawk and Tom Dugan are currently in Pittsburgh. Fuck! Oh well, that's the way things go sometimes. I'll be riding the couch for the next month or so but I highly suggest you plan on being at the Wheel Mill this Saturday!
