This makes me so happy. I remember taking the 1 ton VHS camera in the woods and filming jumps on walmart rigs. Then i discovered NWD 2 Freewheel burning on Limewire and it was on.

Added a new video MUST WATCH - Kathy Sessler's 1970's BMX Race Films 11/22/2017 9:21 AM

Kathy Sessler, who you may now know as the Manager of the Santa Cruz Syndicate, has been involved with bicycles in the dirt since the early 1970's. At the age of 13, she saw the moto movie, On Any Sunday in the theaters. The short section of that movie that featured kids ripping the dirt on Schwinn Stingrays, pretending to be motorcycle riders, inspired her. She hauled her brothers out to a dirt lot and they built a race track with jumps, whoops, mud pits and even downhill sections. Kathy organized races and filmed them on her dad's 8mm film camera. This video is the goosebump-enducing result. Edit: This is from the bonus section of Sprung 5 Listen to our interview with Kathy on The Inside Line

some riders have people manage their social accounts. maybe neko does now too? no idea, but i'd rather go dig trail and train for racing than update instagram any day of the week.

Really? 29er DH talk already? Of course, what else are we going to talk about until Croatia? Minnaar has found his bike. He's a 29er dude for sure. Loris went back to 27.5. Jack Moir seems sold on the wagon wheels. Danny on his Mondraker and ... more »

considering the way they're stacked in those trucks, it almost seems like landfill/recycling. checking serial #'s on each bike against theft reports is highly unlikely here and even sorting the bikes out to see if any are actually worth putting in to ... more »
