Snakebite coming through with another classic for you to start your weekend off right! Here’s the full Fox Racing “Expendable 3” video that has an absolutely legendary lineup of riders! The video was released back in 2002 and features riding from Ruben Alcantara, Fuzzy Hall, The Shadow, Dave Mirra, TJ Lavin, Colin Winkelmann, Alan Cooke, Chris Doyle, Taj Mihelich, Brian Foster, Bruce Crisman, Luc-E, Mike Laird, Josh Harrington, Chad Kagy, Colin Mackay, Nate Wessel, Ronny Chalk, Punjab and more! This ha a little bit of everything from street to park, trails and flatland. Needless to say it’s a damn good watch, and I personally can’t even count the number of times I watched this one when it came out 19 years ago.
This is amazing! Taj Mihelich has put his amazing illustrating talent together to tell the story of Paul Buchanan doing the legendary Church Gap in Austin, Texas. The story is told by Sandy Carson, and it’s just shy of five minutes of the crazy story of how Paul did the insane gap without any cameras to document it because he just sent it! Talk about a legend.

It’s safe to say 1998 was a really good year for Primo from a team standpoint. They had an absolutely STACKED squad of legends.

Ramps, street and trails all packed into this one making for a damn good watch! What’s crazy to think about is that 5 of these guys went on to make their own brands; Terrible One, Cult, Volume / Demolition and Deco. Hit play and take is some classic BMX goodness!

“So I never digitized MaddMatt. I only released it on VHS. So it has kind of been a lost tape, and it documented such a great era. Mad Matt 1995. This will flash you back to the mid 90s. I made this video with the Great Mark Eaton, and some of the raddest of the rad that helped build my dream. We worked and played hard. DIY to the core.
I called it Madd Matt because I felt we were fighting to survive and we were making a new world, and for some reason that made me think of Mad Max?
Anyway, thanks for digitizing this for me Kenny Horton and check out his new film.” – Mat Hoffman
Whenver you see Taj Miheliich and Jay Miron‘s name pop up in the same title, especially these days, you know you’re in for a treat! Here’s a new video series Taj is starting where he tells some stories with his illustrations called Amazing Moments In Bicycle History. This first one is a story about a time when Jay Miron made an attempt to do a trick for Taj on vert and was fully committed. Ultimately the trick ended in disaster, but that was beside the point! Hit play to watch and listen to Taj’s story about the Canadian Beast!
“I have been blessed to ride with a number of the world’s most amazing bike riders. They tend to have very different takes on riding and what they are trying to accomplish. One thing they seem to have in common is a drive to test their resolve. Their skills have reached such a high level that I think the real challenge for them is being able to follow through with what their mind knows they are capable of. Their ability to clear their minds of fear and self-doubt allow them to consistently perform at a level the rest of us might only touch once in a blue moon. It isn’t just some gift they are born with, they work for it, and they work hard. When there’s something they want to do and the voice inside tells them that they can (probably) do it, they focus everything on making it happen. The legendary Jay Miron stand’s above the rest at this skill and so this silly cartoon is intended to be a tribute to his determination and something we can all hopefully find inspiration in.” – Taj Mihelich
