When you want things to change in your scene, sometimes you have to take the reigns and make things happen. For those of you that don’t know, we’re based out of Rochester, Minnesota. It’s not exactly the kind of place you would expect a site like this to be with so much of the BMX industry being in California, but we still make it work. One thing we have always done is worked to be involved with or making events happen up here to help bring the scene together and grow it. Recently, we were asked to work with a local group in the city to help out with a big 4th of July celebration that will feature live music, food and alcohol vendors, a car and motorcycle show and a BMX and skateboard contest. One of main goals of this event was to show the city council that there is a big BMX and skateboard scene to get them to see it’s time to expand the skatepark. Once we heard that, we were all for helping out with the BMX contest.
So, if you’re in the Minnesota area on the 4th of July, swing through Rochester and hit up the Silverlake Skatepark. We’ll be throwing the BMX contest at the park and we have a ton of prizes from our sponsors; The Shadow Conspiracy, Subrosa Brand, Fly Bikes, Profile Racing, Madera, Mutiny Bikes, Kali Protectives, Radio Bikes and Merritt, to giveaway!
