Not to start like a Debbie downer but this week was nuts with a 2x4 hitting me in the head then a snake bit me and to top it off while riding I looped out and rode it all the way to my elbow. Damn life gets you sometimes and shakes you up. To brighten things up I found Coors the Banquet beer in a handsome aluminum bottle which I'm not sure what this is but its helping me write this crap your about to read. To start you need to fart or try whiplashes with TA. To read is to need to wear a helmet when your doing something real nuts. To ride and to slide like Tom Villarreal how to on rails. Its better to be Stacked than get jacked with the grand opening in Riverside. Taylor Bonds responds to twitter. Baco church lot is the spot and the jam is going to be ham. Did you get the reminder for Voodoo jam? New parts will bring on the farts next week. Have a great weekend and stay safe, unless you have a plan. -Chad D
BMX: How-to Whiplash With Terry Adams as seen on http://bmx.transworld.net
Matt sent me this pic early in the week and said he had to throw on a helmet, he doesn't wear one on street so I knew something was up...he had this to say:
I like the federal government.
I like when they build things that we need.
This new highway system? We really didn't need.
It criss-crosses the eastern side of downtown Tampa at treacherous height. At some points, cars are five, six, seven stories above the streets below. And there's never grid lock. Because no one drives it.
This section here in the photos is one of the newest additions. Tucked into a rarely traversed road way, it would be perfect if the run up (or run down) weren't two layers of rocks.
Two weeks ago, when we first stumbled upon it, those said layers were quite loose. Cruising halfway down it, it was hard not to wash out at the end. From there, we concluded that without boards, this was simply a bad idea.
Then came this past Tuesday. We cut through this underpass to head to another spot with no intention of stopping. But on passing, I noticed tire marks on the layers of rocks.
For some reason, some heavy equipment had rolled through and tamped the rocks into a decently solid layer.
It was a small window of good conditions.
I had to give it a go.
Thanks to David Gibson for making me take the leep. Thanks to my helmet for being handy.
Thanks to good times.
Kick out your leg, heave over with your foot, and hold on. -Matt Coplon
Very unused, but highly appreciated. Tom Villarreal walks you through how to tire slide down a rail. Basically, we can sum this one up pretty damn easy: commit!
Let me say that you better be watching out for our friend Mr. Taylor Bonds. He lays down a few lines for the camera at Northglenn skatepark, while managing to put together some amazing combos together with easy. As I said get used to his name because I feel confident you will be seeing more of with it combos like those in an mere evening or riding. Hope you enjoy it thanks for watching.
