Going Big Again!

I haven't ordered bumper size stickers in years, time to go big again! A bunch of these 8.5" x 2.75" stickers will be here in a few weeks. Ideal for your top tube, car, trailer, local parks, etc. I'll be handing them out as usual, but if you want to buy in bulk they'll be 3 for $1.


Baltic Contest

There is a contest at the Baltic Skatepark on Saturday. We have a crew heading down to check it out, maybe a few will even compete. Hope to see some familiar faces there getting rad! Check it out...


RI Night Trip

Bry and I headed over to the Norwich Skatepark for a quick session prior to meeting up with Steve and road tripping to Rhode Island. Once we made it to RI we hit up the Pawtucket Skatepark for 45 minutes at dusk. The place was mobbed, but locked and we had to jump the fence...odd? Around 7 we made our way to Circuit for the FBM shindig. The Thousand Yard Stare movie sneak peek was awesome, looking forward to the full length video later this Fall. On our way home we hit up the Providence Skatepark and the place was empty. We got a solid 20 minutes in before riders and skaters appeared out of the darkness and the place was hopping at like 11 at night. The local riders were young and all super flowy. So rad watching those kids shred that park going 100 mph and boosting everything! All in all it was a kick a$$ evening trip, especially for a Tuesday.

NEW Willimantic Skatepark

On the way home from the park trip Sunday Steve, Brandon and I took a detour through farm country over to the Willimantic Skatepark. Holy Hell, the park is huge! Not just a huge area, huge trannies too! So psyched for this place to open. Word on the street is 1.5-2 more months of work to go. Fingers crossed for a pre-Winter opening and a few sessions before the first snow!

Begin's Park Edit

Brandon Begin did some filming yesterday and cut this little edit. Good stuff!


Sunday Park Trip: 9/25/11

3 car loads of riders met at my place today and we rolled out to the Norwich Skatepark. Super fun session at the park with everyone feeding off one another and getting rad. We hit up Baltic next mid-afternoon and the place was a zoo. In between dodging scooters rats a few people were able to throw down some original lines. We finished up the day riding the Plainfield Skatepark. To our surprise a few car loads of the Haven locals showed up to ride as well as Brett and Shamus from Mass. After a solid park session we got in a little street time around the area and called it a night. Thanks for everyone that came out. Days like yesterday are the reason I'm 31 and still riding a little kids bike. No injuries, no sh1t talking, no 1-upping....just friends having fun riding bikes. That's what BMX is all about!!!

Guilford Saturday Session

Steve and I hit up the Guilford Park on Saturday for an afternoon session. The Fall temps have arrived, it was a great 62 degree and sunny day. For the first time in a long time I have no photos to offer, I rode the whole damn time. Bring on the cool, manageable weather!


Dirt & West Nile

Steve and I hit up Chad's Trails for a quick session before dark last night. Steve put in a bunch of digging hours there over the past few weeks and wanted to hit up the new jumps he built. The place was still pretty damp and the mosquitoes were deadly, but it was nice to get back to Chad's....been a while. In addition to the new jumps, Chad is in the process of building a mega lander. I'm assuming there will be a huge wooden kicker to go along with it in the near future. Looks similar to one of The Lot big line set ups. Looking forward to the cooler temps, no bugs, and lots of trails!

Back to Sunset Ranch

Steve and I adventured North to to Sunset Ranch in Hatfield, Mass for a little trails action. Chris, the trail boss, has been slaving keeping the place in mint condition...even after Irene a few weeks ago and 3 straight days of rain last week. The place has progressed a ton since we were up there last in June. After a little dirt action we hit up the Southwick Trails, which were totally flooded surprising us all. We back tracked 15 minutes to Agawam and ended up hitting up the local skatepark there. The place was infested with kids, but it had a fun layout and when we could get a clean line it was fun as hell!

Non-stop Rain!

Man, in the wake of Hurricane Irene we're now getting hosed with 3 straight days of rain. The CT River is flooding again and everything is saturated. The trails are going to need some insane maintenance after these past few weeks. Get out there are dig!!!


Ride Your Heart Out!

5 years ago this week Shawn Hebrank created this kick a$$ artwork for us. Back then the design was used for stickers, but I though it was about time I got it on a shirt...AVAILABLE NOW in the Online Store above.

Be sure to check out Shawn's other artwork on his website by clicking his name above or over the link in the right sidebar.



Nothing new to report, it's been a slow week in the wake of Hurricane Irene. Fall is fast approaching, cool weather sessions are just around the corner. Psyched!!!
