This week in video history, the young guns on their brakeless big wheeled bmx bikes that are littering the web with street videos owe it to old timers like these (who still occasionally show the young whipper snappers what's up):






This video was released in 2003 during that sort of awkward period where bmx hated mountain bikes for getting rich off their old tricks... oh wait, certain people are still salty about that. But if you ask Lenosky or Chase, I doubt they would agree that they "got rich" off barspins and threes. This is about the end of the times when you would see Jeff doing much trials in his video parts as I recall too, not too many more rail gaps and stuff in his later parts. I miss that.

Anyways, this was also the year for NWD when Dave Watson hucked over the Tour and got put in jail for the attempt- my guess is that if he landed it, he wouldn't have gone away in cuffs. If there's one thing the French hate, it's seat bounced hucks.

my mistake, urban legend told me that cop running after him took him away... don't I just look like an ass now.

Yes, yes you do look like an ass.

That video may be pretty old at this point, but I don't know if there's anyone else in the world who's done a rail gap (trials-style) to barspin. Might not be the prettiest thing in the world, but it's a hell of a combination of two different types of riding...

I know... Funny thing about the DH productions DVDs, they released CR3, with CR2 as a bonus. I didn't see CR1 until CR4 came out... (scratches head.)

That is absolutely true! The dude has evolved for years and continued to not only stay on top but be one of the front runners for continually progressing the sport, I mean look at his section in Disorder 10, the dude is nasty good and a great guy! He just loves riding his bike, its pretty cool!
