DIG released this fresh video from this years ABQ DNV Eat the Streets Jam in Denver, Colorado! Above you can see the highlight reel giving us a look at all of the spots these guys hit, the riding the went down, the multiple times they got kicked out of spots and all the good times that were had! All in all, this looks like one hell of a BMX Jam! If you’re digging this video, you can also check out a photogallery from the day right here!
“DIG is proud to present the first stop of ABQ DNV’s Eat The Streets 2015 jam series hosted in downtown Denver, Colorado. A great mix of locals and riders from far and wide, including Adrian Vigil, Lahsaan Kobza, Matt Closson, Kenjoe, and more converged on Mile-High City to kick things off.
“Eat The Streets is an pro-am series of street jams traveling from Denver down to Albuquerque, Phoenix, and SoCal with a cash purse and giveaways from our sponsors. This event came about based on the idea that it was time to put BMX back into our own hands, the riders. With corporate sponsors pulling out of BMX left and right, we felt the need to create something that is in our control, and on our terms. It’s raw, it’s street. This is our chance to give back to the sport we’ve grown to love so much with our friends and now family.
Denver was our kick off spot for the series and could not have been happier with the results. We had so many riders of all skill levels, young and old sending it all day. With Denver having such a rich history in BMX over the past few decades it only made sense to start here in downtown. With spots ranging from rails, banks and ledges we had everything covered we wanted to ride and then some! Being downtown comes the risk of getting kicked out at spots but with how large our group was every spot had to be reevaluated by the cops and security. We had no major issues with this because by the time they regrouped we were on to the next one.
These events are a labor of love. It would not matter if we had 10 or 100 kids there, we would move and push just the same for the love of BMX. Cheers to all those who showed up and rode as well a huge thank you to all our sponsors and supporters. See you all in Albuquerque for the next Eat The Streets jam on July 25th.” – Mario Carrasco / ABQ DNV
