On Saturday May 21st BMX legend Chris Day organised a BMX Flatland jam hosted by Bicycle Source Bike Shop in Anaheim. The weather was hot and sunny (orange county big surprise haha) and we had roughly 40 riders present and riding. The shop is ridiculous! My main man Danny Hubbard in a big part of the re-energised Bicycle Source and it shows! With bikes stretching from the very beginning of BMX to the current low toptube bikes and big bars of today, this shop is one of a kind! Along with a fun small to medium ramp configuration, the showroom has a fully mobile setup of industrial cabinets and hanging walls all on wheels for quick removal in case the cops show up!! haha just kidding :) The showroom was cleared for the flat jam and best trick, which went down around 630pm. The lighting and floor werent prefect but we made it work and Steven Dirty Hern's delicately handled backwards backpacker to xfoot hitch took the win. Ed Nussbaum was on hand and riding sooo good. Ed is one of my most favourite riders and people. I hope to see more of Ed this summer! Its rare that we (the LA flatland scene) can all get together and session. Chris Day and The Bicycle Source made that happen and for that Im stoked! Look for more jams at the Bicycle Source in the future! Boom!
