So, I'm watching BMX dirt jump on the X-games on ESPN tonight and I see these guys pulling front flips on their bikes. When the F#@% did they start pulling that shit off?

I saw a guy eat dirt BIG time last year trying to learn those. They rock!

I learned how to do backflips last year at the tender young age of 37.

I've seen it done on video at least 3 years ago. Pretty cool!

Did you watch Travis Pastrana in the Motocross Freestyle with that new front fork setup. He attempted a backflip, and in the middle he spun the bars. Upon landing the fron end succumbed to the force of landing and he crashed. I dont know if he re-attempted it tho.

You see guys pull this stuff, and I go to find out that Colin Winkleman killed himself Friday night.

He holds the record for jumping 13 vans on a bmx bike.

Rad!



Yah, I remember watching that movie as a kid...yah, I was all into that...My mom freaked the first time she saw me bunnyhop a picnic table...(one hop onto the bench, one onto the table, one off...)

Damn, now I gotta go see if it's ever made it to DVD...

And, it had Lori Loughin in it Yum!
