We have been rippin’ through Texas for about a week now. It all started in Austin for the Texas Toast Jam. It’s been a hellish, amazing, grueling, hot, cold, drunk, sober, starving, over fed, dried out pool party, with a few wheelies thrown in. This is one of those BMX events that will go down in history. By far the best thing that happened was Mikey Aitken taking a run through the jumps! Very inspiring. At the moment we’re in Houston after a shop stop at Bikeland USA, and Bear Branch Skatepark. Awesome turn out, with around 60 people shredding the park with the Sparky’s Distribution crew. Here’s a few memorable photos from the first week. Click below to see the rest of the photos.
