HELLTRACK 2018, Cru Jones is my Homie

After hours of being stuck in traffic finally arrived to the venue only to be told that you gotta pay to play.   Sheesh what ever happened to rider courtesy when all they want to do is check out the venue for 15 minutes before dropping $250 ($75 per person) I have hosted the King of New York for years before Danny Parks took over, and international contests etc, but apparently times have changed. Meanwhile back at the parking lot, saw this awesome ride!   Will try again tomorrow, because why not..it’s not every day you get to meet Eddie Fiola, Martin Aparijo and Woody Itson in the same spot! Helltrack, hellhot, hell-expensive —— Day Two The event was in full affect and was so was the heat index, but that didn’t stop the hundreds of old school riders from showing up and showcasing their classic bikes. The HELLTRACK course was an exact replica of the famed movie RAD which featured protagonist Cru Jones as he battled his way to beating team Mongoose. Cru Jones became legendary when he did a backflip to shortcut the race and take the lead. Well guess what, same exact thing happened on day two! Pretty awesome! Thank you to Eddie Fiola and my life long champion rider slash hero Martin Aparijo for being there too. My only wish is to see this event repeated yearly in different locations throughout the country. Here is my favorite scene from the movie, enjoy the...

Jam: Toyosu volume 4 in Japan

This year Toyosu jam included some of Japan’s top flatland riders, including my personal favorite Hiroya Morizaki. His bold style with big jumps in-between back wheel and front wheel action has defined his signature style for many years. Enjoy this video recently published on yukiproject youTube channel.   The video starts off action packed, be sure to look around the city background as the video director pays close attention to not only the level of riding and difficulty of the tricks but also of the fantastic scenery Japan offers. The video was filmed on March 19th 2017 so this is all very fresh and new, in a few years from now everyone will be proud to have been a part of that moment, whether attending or viewing it on Flowzine.com As always ride...

King of New York BMX Contest 1998

The year was 1998, the place was Mullaly Park – Bronx New York History A group of riders got together and decided to start their own BMX contest series right in their local skate/bike park called Mullaly Park. Led by Luis Perez, Rob Ramos and Fred Gonzalez these riders decided it was time to establish a scene of their own, they called it “King of New York”. Riders from Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island (whaddup Ivan) and New Jersey (whaddup Adam Guild, Erin Donato, Brian Tunney, Mike Wilson, Rodney Norweiser, Ed Nussbaum) turned up to the event, including riders like Catfish drove all the way from Ohio to represent. The contest series hosted live bands such as Sick of It All, No Redeeming Social Value, and a bunch more! The contest also featured live wrestling…I mean who does that! Even in 1998! This was a once of a kind BMX contest, in an era where riding was truly underground especially in the Bronx. Enjoy the video clips that BIKERSTORIESNYC shared with the world. (The music is different but thats cool, if anything its very much like the contest itself..a free for all BMX contest that celebrated originality. FlowZine sponsored and hosted the event…it was when it all began for us. You can spot Flowzine Fred riding on a borrowed bike in between of running the event with the crew.
