The Come Up has this fun, behind the scenes style video thing dialed. Here’s a look at day three of the Mongoose Jam, from the slightly different perspective of the TCU crew. This one has even more crankflips than the day 2 video, so in my mind that makes it better.
Get a behind the scenes type look at the 2nd day of the Mongoose Jam. Good tricks, funny outtakes, and at least 2 crankflips.
See day one of the #MONGOOSEJAM through the eyes of of the TCU guys. Looks like a good time all around.
Ryan Guettler loaded up the RV with Adam22, Chris Long, Victor Salazar, Ben Snowden, James Foster and Lavell and headed out to Woodward West. That’s a pretty diverse crew, and the video reflects that for sure.
For the eleventh behind the scenes video, we get to follow Adam22, Scott Ditchburn and friends journey to a flatrail spot to film for Scott’s Chain Reaction edit that is in the works. While you don’t get to see the banger clip, you do get some spare grinds from Adam and Scott, along with some entertaining stories from Mr. Grandmaison.
As always, TTL just kind of happens and this week was no different. I normally wouldn’t want to do two weeks of straight interviews but I randomly tweeted at Adam Grandmaison a.k.a Adam22 on Twitter and said that I would like to interview him for a future TTL column on the site. Well, long story short he came back with an “I dare you” and now a few days later here we are. Needless to say the reason Adam and I get along so well is because we have had a mutual respect for one another from the beginning and whether or not you want to admit it, The Come Up is a site that nearly every single BMX rider in the world checks on a daily basis so you can’t really say that he isn’t doing it right. He also has been laying low working hard on a bunch of new projects, he hired a staff of bloggers and has been working on a brand new iPhone app that will be out soon. I cruised down to Long Beach on Monday to sit down with him, chill for a bit and find out exactly what TCU has in store for the future. I also interviewed his personal bodyguard Chris Long and his new money guy Alfredo Mancuso. Love it or hate it, TCU has been a staple in the BMX scene and will be for years and years to come. Let’s get to it.
