On June 13th, BMX riders from all over the place made their way to Burlington, Iowa to ride the Dankward Skatepark for the one and only Burly BMX Jam! Above is a video that gives you a look at the highlights from the entire day from the riding to the karaoke that that went down at the after party. You can see riding from guys like Bobbie Altiser, Dan Hylton, Jared Schlesselman, Habo Gutierrez and Glenn Salyers. This is what a proper BMX Jam looks like! It’s such a bummer knowing that we won’t be seeing Glenn blasting airs like he is doing in the end anymore. We’ve included a link to donate to his memorial fund below! Expect part 2 soon…
“Burly Jam 2015.
It was a cloudy day in Burlington, Ia on June 13 but that didn’t stop the migration of BMXers to Southeast Iowa from places like Texas, Chicago, New York, and all other dark corners of the Earth. Special thanks to @skateparkrider (Bobby Parker) for organizing this jam and to @twobraketony (Anthony Loconte), @golden_rod (David Buseman), and @murderbikebmx (Jerrod Glasgow) for taking the time to film. Also, thanks to Logan from @letsroastcycles for sponsoring High Air, Justin Marland for sponsoring King of Box and a special thanks to @sethgz (Seth Garrett) for supplying the music all day.
RIP Glenn Salyers” – Bobby Parker
There has been a Glenn Salyers Memorial Fund setup to help out Glenn’s family in this difficult time: Road2Recovery Foundation
