Yeah dude, watching Berra take 12 year olds money is so funny. Also, going to Nike isn't as cool thing in the BMX world, because there's nothing comparable to the SB brand. That 6.0 thing is kinda wack...especially lumping all those sports under the 6.0 sponsorship. Nigel Sylvester, the BMX dude on their team with the most street cred, actually does more with Nike Sportswear division than the 6.0 stuff.

That's why more BMXers support Lotek shoes, even if they are made out of cheaper materials. http://www.danscomp.com/products.php?brand=LOTEK

yeah 6.0 is super corny but i'm sure their riders are still getting PAID. it looks lotek is really starting to develop an identity of it's own, which is awesome.

is nigel sylvester as big of a name as it seems? he gets a lot of press in non-bmx blogs i read but that could just be because of his nike association. who are the big names that TRU RIDAZ are hyped on? like the guys that are too cool for the x games but get the big sponsors and coverage.

Yeah, Nigel is pretty huge and has a lot of credibility. He doesn't even do contests, but has big sponsorships with Nike, Mirraco, and Gatorade.

Chase Dehart is another big name currently. Another non contest dude, that has influenced the style of a lot of the younger kids riding around, and he has all the "in" sponsorships like Fit Bikes, Lotek, Shadow Conspiracy...etc

I went to the local outdoor skatepark this morning for the first time. I busted up in there at 8:00am since bikes aren't technically allowed, and I hate hate hate going to a park when it's packed with high school kids smoking w33d.

All in all, it was a pretty sad showing. Several failed grind attempts and poor bike control. My foot is still healing from that Evil Knievel 7 person jump/wreck, so that's a factor; but it still bummed me out. Going to try and go ery'day though.

Mike V came off as super annoying in his first round loss.

i can only imagine how much rage he held back when cole started nailing his doofy fingerflips and grab dances. didn't think he had that 360 flip in him though.

i enjoy mike v for skating a different style than most dudes these days, but don't agree to participate and then bitch about the rules. cole was a class act in humoring him.

busenitz is such a beast. i think he did all that crazy shit at speed because he physically can't skate slow.

X-games...kinda meh. Seemed so much more rad when you were a kid. Still going to check out skateboard park finals today while flipping back and forth with NASCAR

i fucking hate the x games because i get moderately excited to be able to flip through and see skateboarding, but every fucking time it's motocross or rally cars or one of those dumb sports.

The skateboard park seemed top serious boring to me. There were like 2 kick flips throughout the entire thing. I understand why since the guys runs were over if they fell, but still. I didn't want to watch a bunch of guys flowing around a concrete park doing big airs. It was like polar opposites from the BMX park event in the same venue. Dudes were doing like backflip double tailwhips and other video game tricks.

The skateboard street event was really the only one, aside from vert, that had real tricks in it.

that's likely because everyone saw the video footage (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2BK9oGuLXM) of rune cruising completely effortlessly and knew that they didn't have a prayer. i love how everyone else is all namby pamby on the deck in helmets while homie just glides by them no pads. what a beast.
