This is the first episode I’ve posted of the Wheels of Confussion web series that FBM has been doing over on Epic TV. Not to take away anything from the other episodes, but this is the first one from the trails. Join them as the crew makes a stop at Catty for some fun in the woods on their bikes and behind the grill.
Bell Helmets put together this very interesting piece that not only looks into the beginnings of Van Homan, but also the heritage of kicking ass that runs deep in his family. I know he’s Van Homan and all, but I have to give him shit about that fufanu to lip massacre. Sure hope he picked up a shovel after that!
There were a lot of people out filming the TRA Double Cross, including Elevated Visuals‘ Troy Zeigler. It may have taken him a little bit to get this edit finished up but I look at it as a welcome reminder of how great the event was.
This is the best video that I’ve seen so far that truly captures just how amazing TRA‘s Double Cross was. Even at Dreamline conversations would inevitably drift into talking about Double Cross. Will it be the future of BMX racing? I highly doubt that because it’s something that’s completely different. BMX racing in its present and past form is a jock sport. Sure you get the occasional Brian Foster or Robbie Miranda who come through and shake things up, but for the most part it’s dominated by dudes who spend more time in the gym than on the bike. The…
Red Bull is first to the gate with an edit from TRA’s Double Cross. Navaz was stressing on how to film this thing but it turned out pretty damn good in my opinion. Have a watch and start planning on being at next year’s event. Oh yeah, be on the look out for Jeremy Ball’s gap to fakie at 01:06!
Back in August Troy Zeigler came through with a rocking edit from the Heathens Jam. Here’s a bunch of raw footage that made it into that edit and some that didn’t. No music here, just cassettes, the crowd, and Tommy T on the mic.
Troy Zeigler of Elevated Visuals came through with this rocking edit from the Heathens Mountain Jam. I can’t get over the insanity of what when down there. The mix of trails style and X-Games maneuvers is not what you usually see at most jams these days. That’s what you get when you have a set of amazing trails within a stones throw of Woodward!

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!
Take a journey with Van as he travels from Jersey down to Virginia shredding spots all along the way. Well pretty much just spots in Jersey and Virginia. Two of those spots happen to be trails, and if you want to get straight to them you can jump ahead to 02:10. Via Almond Footwear.
I still remember the first time I ever met Steve Crandall. It was at the 1997 NBL Grands and he walked up to me and said “buy this fucking video.” The video was Live Fast Die, and Steve and FBM’s antics have been keeping me entertained ever since. Here’s a little edit from the ringleader himself, keeping it simple at his trails in Richmond.
