Alex Magallan and Timmy Theus headed to Athens a few weeks back to represent Tree at the Twilight Jam, and managed to catch a ton of footage along the way. Both dudes killed it, and I appreciated the less than average music selection.
Brian Yeagle has had a pretty rough string of injuries lately, so footage of him has been few and far between it feels like. Today, Tree Bicycle Co. dropped some footage that Stew Johnson was sitting on of Brian throwing down at the Eastside Trails reminding us all that Brian is the man! Enjoy!
“A little earlier this year Stew Johnson caught Yeagle in the act of doing what he loves and sent us over a few clips. Here they are. Brian is savage, enjoy!
Thanks to Stew, and all the dudes at the trails.

This week we’re going to take a closer look at Van Homan’s signature VH3 frame from FIT, the Fantastic Plastic peals from Colony, the Envy complete bike from Wethepeople, Profile Racing‘s 40 Stem and the Straight Pull cassette hub from Tree Bicycle Co..

“Perhaps the best thing about something like BMX is that your relationship with it can really be whatever you’d like it to be. BMX is there, and we can mould ourselves around it, and with heart and dedication in earnest we shape our riding and community through it to be the way we would like them to be. There aren’t any rules.”
