This video from the Standard Crew’s trip from Iowa to Colorado is mostly park and street, BUT we do get around 40 seconds of dirt footage from two Colorado bike parks. Jump to the 01:17 mark to get right into it and watch Joey Cordova steez that whip!
This twenty year old commercial that ran in The Shady Bunch is just one of the many reasons that Standard was the end all be all of BMX awesomeness in the mid-nineties! This recording of it playing on a tv is the only trace of it I could find on the web. Even as ghetto… Continue reading Flashback: 1996 Standard Commercial
