Woodward East recently replaced the legendary Cage with a new cement bowl…
It’s always amazing seeing what goes into building something new to ride, especially when it’s at Woodward Camp and Nate Wessel is the guy running the show.

“Out with the old and in with the new! The Cage, originally an XGames qualifier BMX street park, has been completely demolished and it’s time for Team Pain to come in and begin construction on a brand new concrete park. Despite dealing with torrential rain, the crew manages to get the concrete poured and the park completed before camp starts” – Woodward Camp

The build is crazy and the end result is amazing… Nate and his crew have done it again!
“Woodward Riviera Maya build, the pump track. Nate’s original concept was fairly straight forward, but they threw that out the window and started fresh. The result was one of the most unique pump tracks in the world.” – Woodward Camp

Hit play to take in some gold from Nate, Ruben Alcantara, Joe Rich and Garrett Byrnes that does not disappoint.
“This was one of the last BMX edits I ever put together. I think in 2003 a few days before I broke my leg on the T-1 tour and flew home to have emergency surgery. I have not looked at the video since it was made. This footage was edited to a Sense Field song “Fun Never Ends”, the singer Jon Bunch of Sense Field passed away on Feb. 2nd 2016. I post this in tribute to Jon Bunch and family for the inspiration that he has given to so many people. Thanks to everyone that also made this tour happen and the life long memories. Thanks to Etnies, FOX Racing, Terrible One, Taj Mihelich, Joe Rich, Garrett Byrnes, Ruben Alcantara, John Povah, Big Island David Quesada, and all of the amazing friends and family we met and stayed with throughout this tour. “Fun Never Ends”!”
