Despite COVID, the Mongoose team was able to get together to spend some time riding some hidden gems around North and South Carolina this past summer. Here’s a look at what the crew got into during the trip! This also doubles as a welcome video for Mykel Larrin that we are really stoked about. Hit play to check out the riding, along with insights from the team about the trip!
“The Mongoose freestyle team traveled to the Carolina’s to check out the new 2021 Legion series. While we had them out there, Team Manager Leigh Ramsdell played tour guide and took them around to discover the hidden riding gems that this region has to offer. They even crept into South Carolina for a once-in-a-lifetime session at Whipsnake! Watch this video to see all the spots Kevin Peraza, Nikita Ducarroz, Pat Casey and our newest team rider, Mykel Larrin, rode!” – Mongoose
Leigh Ramsdell sits down for an interview on “The Rollback” podcast…
It’s that time for another dialed interview for The Rollback podcast.

Hit play and check it out! You won’t be disappointed.
“BMX lifer Leigh Ramsdell discusses his current role at Mongoose, being in Dave Mirra’s video game, his previous life as a plumber, how much he hates gluten, where BMX is heading, and much more.” – Kyle Carlson
Dan Foley coming through with a new video from a full day of riding he spent with Drew Bezanson, Kyle Carlson, Leigh Ramsdell and Rob Darden cruising the Marsh Creek park and The Unit. This is filled with a full day of riding and behind the scenes action, plus a look at what the guys got into off their bikes as well. Check it!
“Jumped in the car with Drew Bezanson and Kyle Carlson for a little day filming trip. We hit up Raleigh’s Marsh Creek skatepark on the way out of town, then set our sights straight toward Greenville, NC to ride the best skatepark in the world; The Unit.
Huge thanks to Ryan Nyquist for making the Unit session possible.”
Mongoose just dropped this new video featuring Pat Casey having a very productive weekend in North Carolina throwing down at the DDASC park, a few cement parks, Leigh Ramsdell‘s backyard and more! Needless to say, Pat made the most of this short trip!
“Pat Casey went to North Carolina for a weekend to see what the local parks around Raleigh had to offer. The temperature was way colder than Pat is use to but he powered through and came out with a solid video filmed in just a day and a half.”

Remember Olscool BMX that Hal Brindley and Leigh Ramsdell launched last year? Well, the limited runs of those iconic t-shirts that they revived are running short and they will be closing shop once all of the shirts are gone! If you’re trying to get your hands on any of the shirts, now is the time because they’re all on sale now! Check out what they still have RIGHT HERE!
“The end is near. Last year Leigh and I decided to launch a kickstarter project to print some limited edition reproductions of classic 90’s BMX tee shirt designs from 2B Homecooked Garments, PLAY Clothes, and Useless. You, the supporters, voted for the favorite shirts. Silly videos were made, tee shirts were printed, and fun was had by all. We even threw a couple classic hats into the mix along with bowling shirts, flannels and sweat shirts. But all good things must come to an end.
Now it’s time to close the vaults for good (or maybe until another 20 years has passed). The very last of the Oldscool BMX reproductions are now available for sale on our Etsy shop. Various sizes are disappearing quickly so check the availability chart on the front page of the Oldscool BMX website and then head over to our store and get yours before they’re all gone.
