Sometimes when I look for some older videos that popped up in the past the might have been forgotten, we come across some gems that we completely forgot about. Above is a video came out some time around 2010 during the Baco Jam at 4Seasons Skatepark in Milwaukee when I was working for DIG. The concept was pretty straight forward… Walk up to somebody, point the camera in their face and ask a question on the spot. Although this video is this old, it’s pretty awesome how relevant the answers still are. It was originally on MPORA and DIG but it doesn’t appear to be “online” anymore, so I decided to get the video back and upload it here. There’s a lot of legends and riders that at the time weren’t pro, but are pro now like Reed Stark. Funny story, there’s a few clips where my voice went to hell… Literally lost it 100% at this contest and ended up communicating by typing text into my flip phone, haha. Good memories from this find.
Rest in Peace, Dom Trovato, who also makes an appearance in this one.
Original caption from the video below…
“With Baco in Milwaukee going down, there were more than enough people on hand to ask the golden question – “Who has the best turndowns in BMX…. Ever?” The consensus was for one man… but there are a hundred names that still come to mind.

Sorry for the out of focus shots. It was a “surprise” question to everyone so there wasn’t time to focus.
