DIG – Garrett Byrnes “Coming Down” Documentary Trailer

I can’t even put into words how unbelievably psyched I am to see the final result of this documentary that DIG and Stew Johnson are putting together on Garrett Byrnes. There’s no doubt about how much of an influence he was on my generation. I just really hope that at least a few BMX kids of today’s current generation see this and have some of that influence rub off on them!

Flashback: Scum Clothing Presents 1201

No offense S&M but one of the best trades I’ve ever made was back in high school when I swapped a copy of BMX Inferno for 1201. I still have it to this day and I continue to cherish it the same as I did back when I first got it. Who knows if it will even play anymore. Between myself and my friends, it definitely saw way more than it’s fair share of use until eventually being retired due to me no longer owning a working VCR. Luckily the good folks at FBM decided to upload 1201 to Vimeo a few years back so that it can live on in the digital age and influence future generations of BMXers to come.

Remembering X with Chris Doyle

With X Games just a couple of weeks away, we can expect a barrage of X Games related content to drop leading up to it. The first to have any relevance to us a around here is this piece that Stew Johnson put together on the D-Man, Chris Doyle. Chris recounts his memories of the X Games from his first one in 1998, all the way to his 3rd place finish last year. Could this be the year he finally gets that elusive gold medal? I’d sure love to see it! Oh yeah, you’ll have to click into the post to see the video because the X Games video player is funky and won’t display on the main page.

Flashback: Fort Wayne Scene Report 1994

As crazy as it is to think about now, Fort Wayne, Indiana was at the top of the list of places I wanted to live back when I was in high school. The motley crew of dudes who ended up calling that place home during that time is directly to blame for that. The videos they put out gave us a first hand look into the BMX scene they had carved out in a midwest town that I’m sure I had never heard of up until then. It really did seem like a little BMX mecca to myself and the other guys I grew up riding with. By the time we graduated the once thriving Fort Wayne scene was on its last leg. Several of its key members had packed up and relocated to a town I would become all too familiar with, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. This scene check that Kip Williamson put together back in 1994 takes me back to those days of wishing high school would hurry up and be over so that we could head west and join up with the guys who had become our heroes after watching Juvenile Trickery, 1201, and Ring of Fire literally hundreds of times.

BF-it Online Release Trailer

Stew Johnson’s masterpiece that is BF-it is going to be released online this coming Monday on the Dig site. Now, every trail rider worth his bag of salt already owns a copy of BF-it, but it will be rad to have it available online for some other eyes to see. Who knows, maybe it will help show some other riders how awesome trails are. At the very least it will show them just how much of a legend BF is. It’s insane to think that there are a ton kids who ride BMX these days that don’t know that, and some who don’t even know who Brian Foster is. SMH

You may as well go ahead and give Jared’s Fit edit a rewatch as well. You can do that after the jump!

Heathens Jam 2014 By Stew Johnson

I said I hoped for more footage from the Heathens Jam in the last post, and oh boy did I receive. ESPN dropped this doozy of an edit from none other than Stew Johnson himself. Stew, you did an excellent job making me really regret not being at this one!
