Well its almost done. It's been almost 2 months since we set out on our tour and I'm almost done with the DVD. It was a great learning experience as I've never done this before. I tried to showcase what I thought was cool about our trip and show everyone what they could do down south. This doesn't even really touch what you could as a bmxer in Southern California, but just shows what we as a group of friends and family experienced. I had some camera trouble early on and lost a lot of footage, but I was lucky enough to get some cool stuff. Thanks to everyone that helped make it possible. And thanks to Greg Hill, Mike Redman, Bill Ryan, and Chris Moeller for great interviews that will interest any bmx enthusiast. We are also fortunate to have interviews from Kyle Mitchell, Bj Ensey, Josh Banuellos, Talon Redman, Dani George, Jeremy Rommel and Dave Stevenson.
We also really appreciate the hospitality from all the tracks and riding spots. We were treated like locals and it was awesome. So check out the DVD and thanks for the support.

Well we made it to the last night of our tour. We had a great day in Venice and the crew discovered they love Boogie boarding. It was really cool to see them all laughing and playing in the ocean. Tomorrow is the state race at Ventura bmx and we will be filming another chapter of our adventure. See you guys tomorrow.

Today was epic. I got to meet a childhood hero of mine Chris Moeller and it was awesome. S&M is one of my all time favorite companies and seeing the shop first hand was a dream come true for me. They were hard at work hand crafting the finest bmx components in the world and we got to see it all.
After that we went back to Sheep hills and everyone stepped it up today hitting more then yesterday. Shark boy was a beast at the trail and I over heard locals talking about him and he earned respect.
We finished off our day with a quick Orange Y BMX. Al caught up with BMX legend Todd Lyons for an interview and our NorCal boys shredded another SoCal Track.
Tomorrow we see yet another legend...... Greg Hill.
Yesterday was long and didn't get a chance to update but it was epic fun. We took some down time Before sheep hills and hit the beach. The scene was incredible and the tour members had a blast.
After the beach we headed straight to Sheep Hills for an evening session. Even the according to the locals it wasn't in the best shape, it was a killer sesh.Kenny looked like he was having fun riding for thus first time in a while and for me that made it all worth while. We are about to head into S&M so I will get back to you all later.

We left Vegas around 11:30 and drove to the Supercross warehouse. It was really cool to check out and Jeremy,Dani and Bill were top notch hosts and treated us great. All though it was to windy to ride, it was cool to see the playground first hand.
Back on the road he headed straight to Mike Redman grand pri bmx aka Lake Perris. They just did a rebuild and its dope. Everyone riding had a great time and the bridge is dope. You really should check it out. It had a great vibe and the caliber of Riders was killer. Sizemore,Nobles, Stancil,Mitchells to name a few and a bunch of out of owners including Ensey and Banuelos made for a cool filming session.
Now we are just chilling in Ontario down the street from the Riots. Ttyl.

Went to sleep last night around 2am woke up around 4am and hit the road to Vegas. It was a nice uneventful drive and we made it in time for practice. Kenny and Anthony went on a double date with some chicks, Zach raced and we went to Dennys. Everyone's back in the room ready for some much needed sleep. Good night everyone and talk to you tomorrow.

It's kind of funny the way things come about in my life. I had never intended on A tour, it just sort of snowballed off an original Message I sent to Erick from Ventura/Nema.
I had told him that I would love to come to Ventura bmx and film, and he suggested we come out for the state race. Being that it was a week after Vegas it made sense to me to hit it on the way home. It's not really on my way, but if I tried really hard to take the long way home, I could hit a bunch cool stuff along the way.
I've always thought it looked cool when you would see the Old school tour clips in videos and that kind of vibe is something I want to help share with the people on our trip.
BMX for us has gotten so routine and I wanted a different experience for our family and this is what I came up with. Should be interesting.
So check back here over the next couple of weeks for exclusive tour content and behind the scenes shanigans. We are filming all of this for a little tour vid by the way so if your in SoCal we may see you at a track.

I've kind of been laying low on the bmx stuff the last few weeks and trying figure how to proceed with it. I feel like I'm sort of burnt out on it all and needed a change. So I decided I just want to make a documentary.
I have footage saved from a lot of tracks in California and plan on doing a few tours with some friends to gather more. Our first tour is going to Begin in Vegas after the National next month. All of this is subject to change, but the tour so far is looking like this:
July 15-Stop by Supercross and hopefully film with the crew there.
Then hit Lake Perris bmx.
July 16-Stop by Greg Hills house and hopefully interview the Legend and Mabye get some gate tips. Then hit Sycamore bmx.
July 17-Tour Oakley and hopefully film at the track. Orange Y bmx in the evening.
July 18-Beach followed by Bellflower bmx.
July 19- Water park and Nema tour. Haven't figured out which track to hit.
July 20-Ventura bmx for their state race.
Still working out all the details, this is a rough draft. But you see what I'm getting at.

At least a solid hopefuly. I'm going to try to start a pro-am and
I want it to be by age group and that's it. Boys classes, Girl Classes with cool prizes and awards and Pro-ams.
No Nov,inter, or opens. Race what ever size bike you want.
I really want to make it a legit pro-am league as well and find ways to make it worth setting a goal to be a pro bmxer.
More details to come.
