Ha, I wish I could make this one up. Mike Spinner is suing Bell Helmets for $800,000.000. Find out why on BMX News. Not going to lie, this sounds a little ridiculous to me.
I’ll be honest and say I don’t really know the exact format of this contest, but with a line up like that, as long as those dudes are riding it’ll be rad.
“The riders are in Florida and already killing it. Watch as Alex Coleborn, Devon Smillie, Daniel Dhers, Andy Buckworth, Kevin Peraza, Erik Elstran, Kriss Kyle, and more completely destroy Mike Spinner’s backyard ramps. The contest coverage begins on Monday – GET STOKED!
Here is the final rider list –

Here’s some advice on how to get tailwhips over a wedge to wedge from Mike Spinner.
“Mike Spinner has an epic park in his backyard, perfect to practice new tricks and to teach the world his favorites. Tailwhips are a full commitment trick says Spinner, so when you are first learning them he suggests standing on the ground and practicing whipping the bike around with your arms in order to practice landing your feet onto the pedals. Once you take your tailwhip to a flyout scenario you are ready to take it over a wedge. Listen in as Mike Spinner breaks down the tricks to tailwhipping a wedge in this Step By Step.” – Alli Sports

“ Coming soon to Network A, a new show about two BMX pros, one dog, and the baddest backyard in the greater Miami area. Mike Spinner’s and Austin Coleman’s “Program” is part lifestyles of the ripping famously and part ridiculous antics that could only happen in a house inhabited by a bunch of guys with a large indoor pool. You’ll want to subscribe for more of this.” – Network A
