Bicycle Motocross Action--June 1978






















1978 was way before my time in BMX, but there is one name that keeps popping up over all those years, Stu Thompson. NBA #1, wow, they guy had a long run as a BMX pro.

Stu interview. Cool to see him riding SE. I was so used to seeing him in Redline or Huffy colors.















Wonder if he landed that one handed one footed x-up? And is that where the "Super Pros" got their start?















Sometime this morning on Twitter I posted a link to this photo. Stoked when I downloaded this issue and found that Tinker had the spread in it. Guy is an amazing bike rider.

San Antonio Rain Days

We had a nice bit of rain over the weekend, and as soon as it cleared up on Sunday we made our way out to play around in the puddles. Good times.

Freestylin' -- January 1988






















Josh White with another amazing cover shot. These tour issues were always a fun look into some of the different team tours. Nice seeing some of the goings on with the riders.

Great opening shot of the Tour 1987 article. I used to love those CW tires. We used to poach them off all the CW bikes that were in the the bike shop I worked at.
















Dino DeLuca airing over an alley-ooping Dave Voelker. Cutting it a little close on that one. Wonder how many times these guys hit? The Air over 540 at the Haro shows were always the best.

JT Racing -- Bone To Be Wild

Working on a post for the January 1988 issue of Freestylin' and I just couldn't figure how JT Racing thought this could be a good idea.

A Fun Day In Austin

Spent most of the day up in Austin this past Saturday. Spent most of my time riding the trails at 9th Street and finally getting a tour of Empire BMX. I was pretty much in awe all day long and managed to only shoot one photo of Smokin' Steve Tyler's kick ass Bontrager build. His collect is amazing and so is the new Empire location. All in all a great day spent riding and hanging out with friends. And to top it of I ran into the legend himself Lee Sultemeier.
