What ever happened to him? I heard he went to ride bmx but then never saw anything from him again.

I can't tell you how many times I watched his Section 7 clip. Every pinch flat we got for years ended with saying "Well that was that."


His brother Matt was a ripper as well and Eddie was an early 24" style machine.


And here he is in Cassette which I still have on VHS somewhere with a guest appearance by Chris Akrigg!


Big thanks to John Shewsbury for digging these up and sharing!

What a fluid rider. He was such an inspiration in my trials days. But he really pissed me off too. I got my one and only magazine cover for 180, doing an x-up abubica on a two foot stair, which I thought was a pretty cool trick, and right there inside the cover the first add was Eddie doing an x-up drop, off a rail to sketchy dirt tranny.
