FBM are giving away some Headbanger bars and Doublefister grips over on their Facebook. All you have to do is like their page and then submit a photo of you rocking out in some way. Headbanging, air guitard, raging, partying, etc. Get on it!
“In April, lifetime FBM rider and street riding pioneer Mike Tag was diagnosed with Stage ll Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The BMX community quickly rallied to support Tag’s cause. Benefits were organized and money was donated to help pay for his chemotherapy. And currently, Tag is still undergoing chemo, and the doctors believe he is showing improvement.
Earlier this month, FBM organized a benefit jam for Tag at the East Shore Skatepark in Ithaca, N.Y. They never made it into the park, but fun was had by all and all proceeds went to Mike Tag’s cancer fund, which is still accepting donations. And yes, this is the only video this year that you will see both the Cookie Monster and Dennis Condusta riding BMX bikes in. Video by Stew Johnson.” – ESPN
FBM posted up a bunch of photos from the Mike Tag benefit jam that went down at the East Shore skatepark this past weekend. It looks like a legendary crew made the trip and they raised a ton of cash. Awesome.
I had heard rumors that Dave Harrison was moving on from being head welder at FBM, but I wasn’t sure if they were true or not. Rumors tend to fly in BMX, so I like to wait until it’s made official. Well, it’s about as official as it gets now since Dave has an interview on ESPN where he talks about his decision, where he’s going and what his next project will be.
