It’s pretty wild how much changes and how much stays the same in the course of 30 years. Snakebite uploaded this BMX video from the first BMX street contest ever, the 2 Hip Meet The Street contest that went down way back in 1988! The bikes were a little different, the there were a lot of tricks being done we still see today and it looks like the overall vibe was awesome. Take a look into the past.
Random thought watching this… Imagine if Garrett Reynolds went back in time and hit up this contest, haha. People would probably have brain aneurysms trying to process what he does.
“The first ever BMX street contest was held in Santee Ca. and was put on by 2-Hip. Featured riders are Dave Voelker, Chris Moeller, Craig Grasso, Todd Anferson, Pete Augustin, RL Osborn, Eddie Roman, Craig Campbell, George Smoot, Ron Wilkerson, Vic Murphy, Rich Bartlett, Dave Vanderspeck, Scott Towne, & more.” – Snakebite
