Damn. I went and did it. I couldn't just watch, I had to get out there and do it myself. Just watching Marcus killing it racing, he now has two seconds and two wins in as many races, I had to get back on the track. I ended up in a 2-4 combined moto with a full gate in the main and pulled out a third. Not bad for fat and out of shape and my first race back. Calling out the rest of you old guys that used to race! Get off your ass this wet winter and come ride the track. You might even have fun!

One of my first memories of Bad Religion was Mark Murphy's section in the first Standard video to "Give You Nothing". That was around 1992? They have been been around for quite a while but Thursday November 18th was the first time playing in Eugene and my first time seeing them live. This tour comemorates 30 years of Bad Religion. For a bunch of old guys they fucking rocked. Great show, nuff said.

Well the Halloween Jam was a success. I want to thank everyone that drove from out of town to come and ride. We had a very nice turn out. It was very crazy have to switch the days and then switch them back. . . but in the end it all worked out. The cops still dropped by as promised, but where super friendly and we just invited them on in! I want to thank Tyson Copeland from "Drop in Productions" for the web edit. There may be more videos and pictures posted later. . . but for now, ENJOY!

Curb Dogs 2010 "DOG POUND HALLOWEEN JAM"
Date: Oct. 29th
Time: 8:00 pm - ___________
Location: Dog Pound Ramps (Marcola) For directions or any info. please call Nathan Sykes at (541)-232-7819
Please, please, please!!!! Bring a Costume.
Also, there will be a donation bucket available to anyone who would like to give to Luke's family in this time. He is missed by all and this is a huge shock to the BMX world. All are love goes out to his family. So please, if you feel the desire to give, bring anything you can to help his family in this time. Thank you.
That Saturday was a great time and how I hope to remember Luke. A kid that couldn't be happier to spend the day shredding on his bike. Thanks to Riley Peetz and all the locals for throwing another kick ass trail jam to end out the season. We have all been figuring that given the tragedy the following day that it spelt certain doom for the future of Area 51. A representative from the city of Albany was in attendance at the memorial and spoke to Luke's father and Riley about possibly keeping the trails but moving them to a more prominent location Bryant Park, a possible motivation for the move being accessibility in emergency situations. Stoked that they are open to the idea of keeping them but we may need to step up and help the locals convince them that keeping them where they are would be a better memorial to Luke and safer from damage that would be caused by increased exposure. I'll keep in touch with Riley and update info on this as it comes in. Plans are underway for some friends to erect a memorial at the trails Sunday afternoon.

Almost forgot this was going to happen. I had heard about it at the Woodward old school reunion but it had slipped my mind. Haro Team 25th anniversary jam hosted by Dave Nourie in Ashland Oregon. Some serious bmx legends will be in attendance and should be an awesome time. Learn your roots youngsters! Without some of these guys bmx wouldn't be where it is today and you could all be on rollerblades. Saturday, August 14th. Don't miss it!

Just kidding! Levi and his two munchkins stopped by and played in the dirt with us. These two have earned the right to get some runs in which is a hell of a lot more than I can say for quite a few of you. Big thanks to Jarred from PORTLAND and Riley from CORVALLIS for coming all the way down to help move some dirt. Thanks to Sheldon, Scotty and Paul for helping out as well. Dan, David and myself have been the only ones digging until recently and all the extra help is paying off. Let's get some more help and get everything dialed in so we can ride once the dry weather hits!

I heard you were with Dr. Stice when he reconstructed
his face on the bethel spine, what was that all about?
Seizure-like activity, snorring resperations, retro- grade amnesia, lacerated lip, dental trauma, BIG pool of blood after the ambulance took him. Rest of the session sucked because we had to dodge the pool of blood in the bowl!! But all in all, his face looks better now *
Words of wisdom: The years will go fast! - take care of yourself.
Favorite BMX vid: RAD- when if first came out(damn he's old.) *
Whats your ideal day of riding? 70 deg' temp, clear skies, huge bike park with single parent cougars, looking for their new stud.
