Every year there are hundreds of BMX jams and events that happen all over the place. Out of all of those events, there are only a handful that have grown into something much bigger. This past weekend, the 3rd annual New England Jam Chowda went down and, much like the previous two, there was a lot of hype going into it because of how good of an event it really is and you know it didn’t disappoint. We heard rumors last year that this jam was the final one, so we wanted to make sure it was documented! Our friend and photographer, Nick Nogueira, made his way to the jam where he spent the day taking photos of everything from the riding on the ramps to the flatland jam that went down and ended up with a ton of great photos. We pieced together 30 of his best shots featuring the likes of Trey Jones, Paul Barnum, Chad DeGroot, Jake Seeley, Brett Tocco, John Mayo, Eric Hennessey and many more into a photogallery for you guys to enjoy! Take a peek because this might be the last time (we hope not) that this jam happens!
It feels like it has been FOREVER since we’ve seen Paul Barnum’s name pop up, but we’re more than stoked it did today. Check out this new edit of him absolutely DESTROYING spots out east for Merritt! It sounds like he just healed up from injuries and I hope this means we’ll be seeing more of this in the near future.
Another week went blazing by us filled with BMX goodness. This past week we were blessed with two full DVD’s and a ton of videos from some of your favorite BMX riders around the world. We’ve gone through and picked out some of the BEST BMX videos from the Daily Section so you can see what you missed or watch some of your favroite videos again! Let’s do this since there are 24 videos featuring Stevie Churchill, Aaron Ross, Chase Hawk, Sean Sexton, Ruben Alcantara, Deven Smillie, Chad Osburn, Tony Hamlin, Mike Rose, Dakota Roche, Chase DeHart, Chris Childs, Paul Barnum, Brock Olive, Marv, Dennis Erhardt, Garrett Reynolds, Mark Mulville, Corey Bohan, Chris Doyle, Alex Kennedy and many, many more!
Always stoked when I see Paul Barnum’s name pop up! Here’s a brand new one from him throwing down some damn good riding at a prefab park for Merritt. Paul is soooo dialed and so underrated. Hit that play button right now!
Merritt‘s Brandon Begin, Mike Brennan, Brad Simms, Justin Care, Brian Foster and Paul Barnum loaded up for a little tour of shops around the New England area. This is the video they came back with giving you a look at how each stop went along with some extra spots they hit between visits. Everything from the good times to the riding to the filming and editing is awesome minus the rain patches they hit so make sure you hit the play button now!
“Quick trip through New England dodging rain and hitting up some spots in between visiting The Daily Grind, Circuit BMX, Maul’s Bike Shop and Tony’s Bikes and Sports.“
Paul is one of those riders on the east coast whose riding really speaks volumes and stands out. Recently, Paul kind of disappeared for a few months and it turned out he was on the DL list for a little while healing up from some back issues. Now that he’s healed up he has already had two damn good videos drop just in time for summer to roll around. We were wondering what this dude was all about, so we hit him up with a few questions to introduce you to him. He might be a little quiet, but that’s because his riding does all the talking it needs to do! Take a look!
Name: Paul Barnum
