“A few of the highlights from the recent Etnies BMX / Blackout Distribution tour stop at Joe’s Bike Shop in Lafayette, Colorado. Riders were Tony Neyer, Nathan Williams, Tom Dugan, Sean Sexton, Aaron Ross, Lloyd Wright, Bobbie Altiser and Geoff Slattery. The edit includes a interview with Aaron Ross by our man Nick Soloninka. Thanks to everyone for coming out!”
Ryan Navazio gave the Bad Timing crew their old section from the Standpoint 6 section featuring Geoff Slattery, Chris Larson, Darryl Tocco and Randy Brown to post up. There’s so much good in this.
Apparently, I caught on a little early with the post I made about Is This Bad Timing last night. I completely blanked and forgot about the video these guys made back in 2006 called “Just Kidding”. They’ve revived the brand and things are looking promising in 2011. Here’s their first video back featuring Tony Hamlin, Brett Tocco, Geoff Slattery, Darryl Tocco, and Aaron Smith. Must see of the day!
“BT started years ago. We would save up whatever money we could to go on trips and make a shirt or two occasionally. Basically it was a good excuse to travel with my best friends and make videos, which I’ve always been into. Over the past few years it got neglected, but this year with more support and time we are resurrecting it. Almost all of the crew have been down since day one, and Jay Roe, Tony Hamlin and Lloyd Wright now round out the rest of the crew, along with some close friends from the South Jersey area.
The promo was filmed with a chunk of the crew during a week stay in Rochester and Toronto, with some random trip footage also included. Keep an eye out for edits as we compile footage for a 2012 release. Thanks guys!” – Darryl Tocco
I came across an interesting tag that Darryl Tocco dropped on Twitter. It said #IsThisBadTiming, and for some reason I clicked on it. It lead me to the @IsThisBadTiming Twitter, which then lead me to the site, IsThisBadTiming.com. For some odd reason, there’s been chatter of this for about a month and I never even noticed until today.
I’m not really sure what it’s all about, but with the line up of what looks like Darryl Tocco, Brett Tocco, Tony Hamlin, Geoff Slattery, Aaron Smith, Jay Roe, Randy Brown, Lloyd Wright and a few others, there’s bound to be something big coming. The first real post read…
“So, here we go. We’ve all been talking about this for a long time, and we finally buckled down and did something about it. We aren’t trying to do anything crazy; some shirts here and there, and some videos to check out. The crew is made up of a close group of friends that just want to kick it and ride, and that crew will continue to grow and evolve. Hopefully you’ve checked out the promo on the front page, and continue to check the site for random updates and some video content. BT has created a lot of good times for our small fam over the years, and hopefully we can get a couple more years of fun out of doing whatever we’re feeling. Keep a smile, wherever you might find yourself. Bottoms up!”
I guess this means we will have to wait and see where this goes. There’s a video up on the site, but it’s currently locked. As soon as it becomes available I’ll give you a heads up.
“Van Homan, Geoff Slattery & Phil Martin packed up and headed out on the road with Creasy up Scotland for the BSD/Unit 23 jam.
Either side of the jam they hit up London, Stoke, Liverpool, Hastings, Eastbourne & Ashford to sample skateparks, shops, wild beans and handrails.
Thanks to everyone who came out and all the shops for the support.
The rail Van tackles in Eastbourne is a beast.”
“The Nike 6.0/BSD Jam took place on Saturday 19th of March 2011. It was a massive event and attracted huge names in the sport of BMX including: Harry Main, Alex Kennedy, Alex Coleborn, Simone Barraco, Joris Coulomb, Dan Lacey, Kriss Kyle, Sean Lafferty Van Homan, Geoff Slattery, Matt Roe, Rubio, Disco and many more..
The turnout was fantastic and a huge amount of effort was put in by all the sponsors, Unit 23 Skatepark, Grant Smith and everyone else involved in the organisation of the jam. Hope you enjoy.”
“Rampworx teamed up with the guys at 4Down to hold a secret session at the skatepark last Sunday.
Van Homan and Geoff Slattery were in attendance to session the park with some of our local riders whilst they where in the UK. Check out what went down.
