I rocked a creeper stache for New Years, oh yeah…
2008 was a great year for me personally. 2009 will be that much better!
Here is the game plan for 2009.
Let’s recap exactly what 2008 consisted of. I could sum it up with one word. Awesome.
Instead, I should probably explain a little more of what BMX was this year for me. Last January, well in all honesty… All I can remember until spring was me stuck at indoor parks, blogging away, pounding out interviews, that was about the 5 month mark for this site. As time went on, spring came around. I threw a contest in.. April? May? Whatever.. It was spring. It turned out awesome, and I was stoked to do it.
Summer came faster than I could imagine, and it went just as fast. I was riding at least 6 days a week at that time. It was so good. When temperatures hit below 0, and the snow covers everything. That small outdoor park just down the hill that you get real sick of all summer long starts looking real good.
Fall hit, I was back at school full time, working all the time too. This is when life started getting awesome.
I made my way out to Las Vegas for Interbike and without a doubt… The best experienece of my life. Sure, the convention will kill you if you are there all 3 days, all day. The night life is what you go for. NORA Cup, Mosh Party, Limo Party, Running the strip with Kyle Hart and Dirt Ron.. I don’t think you understand. I started counting the days until this years the second my plane landed back here in Minnesota.
And before you know it, it was winter again and here we are.
A lot of you people are firmiliar with me because of The Come Up which is great. I am really into the site, but currently I am not posting on there since it’s slower and Adam doesn’t need help with the 50 posts a day. So, I will be guest appearing on there sometimes. I am more than stoked to still be able to do that at least. In the mean time to fill up my time, Justin Kosman and Alex at Give D! got me a spot on the BNQT BMX blog. I am not sure of all the details yet, but I should be doing something with them soon!
I leave on Monday for San Diego to hang out with Alex, Justin and the Give D! crew for a week. Expect to see some awesome photos, maybe a video, and good stories to come from that. I am really excited just because I have been down to riding about once a week if that. That and I have wanted to go to San Diego since I started riding about 9 years ago… So that will be checked off my list of things I want to do in my life. haha
As for BMX union… Here’s the plan. I am clearing the list. I have a whole bunch of interviews I never got back and I am real bummed about that. It sucks when people are all about it then I have to send a reminder, and then another, and still nothing. Oh well, can’t win them all.
So, I will be sending out emails to companies, riders, and an invitation to anyone who thinks they know of somebody who deserves an interview for 2009! I can’t wait to see how things go this year. I want to do more than 100 interviews. I think I did that last year, so why can’t I do it again?
Also, with all the random dudes that helped with this site over the last year and a half it has really only been me and Alex lately. So, if you are into blogging and feel like you have something to contribute. Let me know and I will get you in on this! Check my email to the right there.
Maybe the site will even get redesigned? We will have to see how things go!
Maybe a few t-shirts and stickers will be done.
All I know is that things will still be rolling. Get stoked!
