Holy hell, I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since I did a flashback post. I knew it had been a bit, but damn! Hopefully this video that Joe Rich cooked up eight years ago for Fox will make up for me dropping the ball for so long. I mean, if six minutes of Chase Hawk and Ruben Alcantara doing Chase Hawk and Ruben Alcantara things at various Spanish trails doesn’t make up for it, I don’t know what will.
None other than Jimmy Levan himself showed up at Posh the last time I was time I rode there. He wasn’t riding but he was full of stories, including a few about his visit to the original Posh Trails for a legendary underground contest they held there back in 1992. Coincidentally this hour of footage from that very contest popped up online just a couple weeks later. It’s pretty crazy to see some of the stuff dudes were going for back then. The 720 attempt at 38:33 is one of my favorites in here by far! There’s also a ton…
Go ahead and kiss any plans you had for being productive today goodbye! Click HERE to get it for iOS, and HERE for Android.
The wait is almost over! In just two short weeks Pumped BMX 3 will be available for both iOS and Android! It’s almost certain that there will be a worldwide drop in productivity immediately following the release. Better get everything you need to get done before September 29th rolls around!
Start getting excited now because Pumped BMX 3 will be available this summer! As you probably figured out from that image above, this time you’ll have quite the cast of characters to play with! There’s no exact release date just yet, but they are promising more news on it and all the new game features in the coming weeks. If you haven’t figured out just who’s who in the image above, you can check out closeups of each rider after the jump. They look awesome!!!!
I figured I better come up with something exceptional for a flashback post since I’ve missed getting one up for the last couple of weeks. Pretty much everything T-1 does is exceptional, so I feel this video from their 2011 Australia tour should more than make up for my slacker ways. Man, I totally forgot Tom Dugan used to be on T-1!
Joe has been posting a bunch of classic edits that he’s had a hand in over on the T1 site. I had all but forgotten about this motowhip how-to that he filmed with Chase Hawk back in 2009. Man, I watched this at least a dozen times when it came out! It didn’t help my whips at all but watching Chase do these sure is candy for the eyes.
Back in the day myself and the group of dudes I rode with referred to Joe Rich simply as “The Man.” There was something about his riding and persona that really resonated with us, and in our opinion Joe Rich was the end all be all of BMX awesomeness. Fast forward 20 years and my opinion on that has still not changed. As great as Joe is on a bike he’s even better at being just a kick ass human being. I couldn’t be happier that he’s the third subject of The Diggest’s “Perspective” series! After you give it a…
If you do one thing today make sure it’s taking the time to read Joe’s interview from Dig’s “Legends Issue” that they just put online! Hands down one of the best things that I’ve read in a long time!
I always get a kick out of seeing old trail footage from spots that still continue to exist while progressing tremendously. Note the butcher jump at Posh! This video is from 1997 produced by Props.
