ESPN BMX caught up with Jimmy Levan to talk about his experience at the very first X-Games back in 1995. Definitely a few funny stories in this quick video.
This is pretty amazing. This band Rudimental put together a music video for their song “Waiting All Night” that tells the story of Kurt Yeager’s story from losing his leg to getting back on a BMX after busting his ass to make it happen. This video also features the likes of Ryan Metro, Jimmy Levan, Aaron Nardi, Just Allen and Danny Downey. I HIGHLY suggest you give this a watch since it’s pretty amazing.
“The official video for ‘Waiting All Night’ is the inspirational true life-story of San Francisco born BMX champion and actor – Kurt Yaeger, who became an amputee after an accident in 2006.
All the characters in the clip are pro bmx’ers and the real friends of Kurt.
Waiting All Night feat Ella Eyre is out April 14th, pre-order here: http://smarturl.it/WANep

I could use some afternoon delight trails sessions in my life right about now… But yeah, that’s beside the point! Check out this video featuring Mitch McKelvey, Andrew Johnson, Kohl Denney and Jimmy Fricken Levan getting some time in at the Fury Trails in San Diego. I don’t remember the last time I saw some footage of Jimmy shredding some trails so I’m stoked on this! Definitely a good mix of riding and damn do these trails look good. Check it!
It’s been a while since we’ve seen some Jimmy Levan, but here’s a little interview with him from Alli Sports.
“Jimmy Levan is the man behind Metal Bikes and as a BMXer himself he can personally speak to the hardships that come with running a company, being an active rider all while trying not to overdose on the thing you love. We catch up with Jimmy to get his take on getting started in BMX as a punk-rock member of his “X-Men”, entrepreneurship and mixing his passion for the sport with the business of making a living. Check in with Jimmy Levan and let him take you Inside BMX.”
I’ll be honest and say I never knew this photo was chainless. That makes it so much more gnarly.
“Jimmy Levan tell the behind the scenes story about his first tooth hanger photo that he shot for an Odyssey BMX ad. It just so happened to be in the dark and he was missing his chain at the time. Photo by Justin Kosman” – Crooked World
This one is NOT safe for work and I should probably say it’s an 18 years of age + video… Haha There’s a lot of boobs and girls making out with each other in this. Awesome. Jimmy LeVan and Cory Nastazio are wildcats.
Head over to DIG to find out what’s new in the life of Jimmy LeVan. It sounds like there’s some good things coming in the future…
