Mike over at Clicked asked John Povah, Jay Roe, Steve Crandall and Adam22 what it takes to get sponsored these days. Anyone who’s hoping this link holds the key to their fame is probably trying to hard…
Here’s some “scraps” from Aaron Smith, Jay Roe and Tony Hamlin. It’s not really scraps, but it looks like they’re saving the good stuff for the full-length video that is in the works. Expect real good things when that video gets done.

A few weeks ago, the Bad Timing promo video hit the internet and it caused quite a bit of a stir with the video getting embedded pretty much everywhere. The crew consisting of guys like Jay Roe, Darryl Tocco, Tony Hamlin, Geoff Slattery, Aaron Smith and Lloyd Wright to name a few are members of this rider owned and run clothing brand that has come back for its revival in 2011. I figured it would be a good time to get ahold of Jay and Darryl to find out more about this brand and what’s to come. I’m not sure, but maybe this is Bad Timing for this one…

There’s a lot of people out there that think being a team manager is this rad and ideal job in the industry and in all reality, if you were to ask Kink‘s TM Jay Roe, he would admit that it is. However, there’s also a lot of responsibility that comes with the role and Jay is one of the few people who has handled the job like a champ these past few years. I figured it was time to shoot Jay a few questions to find out what his job is all about. Let’s take a look what he had to say…
Name: Jay Roe
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.
Aaron Smith and Kink team manager, Jay Roe, made the drive from Long Beach, California to Rochester, New York. During the week long trip they made stops along the way and filmed the riding they got in between driving stretches. They met up with Sean Sexton and Jason Owens, Allen Twin, Tony Hamlin along the way. This was not filmed by Darryl Tocco.

Much like any BMX house, trails spot, setup, etc. All good things must come to an end. The Kink house in Long Beach was fairly short lived, but in the time they had out in California the team produced some real good riding. Darryl Tocco went through and put together some of the best clips they got while they were there to this new edit.
