Magnolia BMX just posted a series of interviews focusing on what being sponsored is actually like. From riders just getting some free stuff, to riders making a healthy living from BMX, they really cover the lifestyle differences and similarities from flow to pro. Peta Shepherd, Camila Harambour, Drew Bezanson, Morgan Wade, and Caroline Buchanan (BMX racing) are the riders that contributed to this, and I think it’s a good article for anyone aspiring to be sponsored to read.
Here’s a rad one from Flat Matters for you to check out. Morgan Wade pieced together this video of Alex Jumelin getting a little time in on the water making for some crazy riding. I can’t imagine how hard it has to be to what he does with wet tires and pegs.
During the X-Games last weekend in Los Angeles, Joe Rich pulled out his camera and did a little behind the scenes video giving you a look at some of the riding that went down during practice on the Mega Ramp and the street course along with catching up with Morgan Wade and Dennis Enarson to get their perspectives on things for ESPN BMX. Take a peek at this one because it turned out damn good
Take a look at this wild trails session that went down at Woodward West the other night with some heavy hitters! So good.
“Woodward West kicked off week 9 with a huge, heavy hitter session on the dirt jumps with BMX pros Dennis Enarson, Drew Bezanson, Kris Fox, Mike “Hucker” Clark, Jake Kinney, and Morgan Wade.
Special thanks to Jake Kinney, Sal Saavedra, and the dirt jump crew for keeping the dirt good all summer long!
