This is pure gold right here! Not sure if this is lost footage or what, all I know is that it’s some Backyard Jam footage that I’ve never seen. This takes me right back to the mid-nineties when Bennett, Butler and Taj were BMX gods, and the Backyard Jam was hands down the biggest and… Continue reading Flashback: Backyard Jam Pro Dirt 1996
Go ahead and stop what you’re doing and tell who ever is around you that you can’t be disturbed for the next 40 minutes. Apparently this incredible footage from the 1991 UGP Flying Circus Dirt Contest has been floating around Indiana on a VHS tape for the last 24 years. Someone please buy Rich Hoppe… Continue reading Flashback: 1991 UGP Flying Circus Dirt Jumping Contest
More BF-it gold hitting the web thanks to Dig! This time it’s 12 minutes of hilarious clips and commentary that got left on the cutting room floor. The story about The Wildman finagling his way into the Foster Brother’s MTV Sports spot cracks me up every time!
Well it’s official, Children of the Grave is the most popular trail edit song of 2014. First it was in the Les Gens Spring edit, then Gabi Mastragostino used it, and now this one. Sorry dudes, Taj is the official owner of the song.
It’s interviews like this that make me really regret never getting a subscription to The Albion. It’s an incredibly in depth and personal look into the life of one of the biggest icons BMX has ever had (and probably will ever have). You should definitely take some time out of your day to give it… Continue reading Taj Mihelich’s Albion Interview
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.
Robbie Miranda posted this gem on his Facebook and there was no way I wasn’t going to put it on here. Look how sketchy this setup is! Plywood everywhere, enough space between the jumps for two full cranks (both of which seem mandatory), and lime on the landing for a little extra burn if you… Continue reading 1998 Joetsu Japan King of Dirt
Last week we had an incident where the google aerial view and coordinates of our trails were posted on Facebook by some cyclocross guys. Our trails aren’t exactly top secret or anything but we do try to limit who all knows their location. Mainly it’s to not raise the attention of anyone living in the surrounding… Continue reading Story Time: How I Found Posh & Drexelbrook
It just seemed wrong to put up Robbie and Joe’s section without putting up Taj’s. This is definitely up there among my most watched video parts. I always loved how the section starts out with him bossing those rollers at 9th Street!
Fourteen years later I’m still kicking myself in the ass for not going to this. If I remember right I had the choice to either go to a race with one of my roommates or to go with the other to Memphis to check this out. Of course he comes back saying awesome it was… Continue reading Memphis MTV Sports & Music Festival
