Solid posted a scan of Ben Kellgren's photo in the latest BMX Plus! Joey Garcia posted some new photos from Chunky Hills up on Unevenground; they're of Brandon York, Mat Mardesich, and Travis Hill. Joey Cobbs has a shot each of Eddie and Loid Cleveland up on Lotek.

Here's some video from the Walnut Creek Protest; go to The Rolling Stone for more info.
And here's some pre-opening Roosevelt pictures that Josh Marcus sent in last night:
Chris "Forgot Last Name", boosty flattie.
Dakota Mattert, alley-oop transfer.
All that miniramp footage should be up tomorrow night. I filmed a few more clips yesterday out at Oscar's, plus I came across some footy that I had forgotten about from the Livermore mini, so that'll be in there too.
Caveman, taking a breather.
Suicide sprocket stall.
Gap to flat.

Me, curb endo?

For more pics, go to Unevenground for some shots from Team Soil's show at last week's Niners game and some real rad trails photos of Brandon York and Jordan Murdock, all by Joey Garcia. Elliott says to expect some new shots from him up there soon, too.
I didn't make it out to the Gilroy or the Modesto jam, so I have no idea how those went, but that protest in Walnut Creek last week seems to have gone off well. Click here for pictures and text and whatnot.
I tweaked my back at Roosevelt yesterday morning, so I probably won't be riding much for the next couple weeks; at the same time, I won't be working much or be in school because of the holidays, so get hold of me if you want to film anything. Send in pictures, too - there's a 99.9% chance that you're more likely to get laid from a picture posted on this site than on MySpace. Proven fact.
Guess what Singha's doing here.
Jeff Mannstock, lookdown.
Doug Blankenship, tailwhip.
Doug Blankenship, nothing.
Colin's jam was rad. The ramp was kickass, as always. Ronnie broke himself off on a doublewhip air; not sure if he broke a bone or the ramp, but there was definitely a loud crack after he hit. Ouch. In a surprise guest appearance, Barspinner, Hucker, and Chris Hughes (?) showed up with the Team Soil ramp setup. Hucker fufed and footjammed the sub, followed up by Shea icing and abubacaing it; Shea wallplanted the sub into a cancan lander, and then uncanned while in a nosepick. Awesome.
Dan The Man sent me this photo of a pre-crash Ari trying his damnedest to imitate The Gonz. Badass. In an odd coincidence, searching for "gonz treeride" on Google Images pulls up these photos, but none of the Great Gonzarelli flairing out of a tree.
I didn't make it out to Hell On Wheels 4, due to being really hungover, but from what I've been told, it was pretty rad. I guess that somebody did a tuck no-hander down a huge set, Dirt McGirt had a huge sack of bud, and David Urbieta somehow managed to break his shoulder falling off a curb after getting back to San Jose.
I rode out at Roosevelt for a couple hours this morning with the Graceful Manatee before going to work. A near-empty park is a happy park, at least until the City trash-collector shows up at ten. Shades of Sunnyvale's "Lawnmower Man."
And here's Marco's Icer Air web edit:
And here's Nick "that vaguely familiar-looking guy with the VX2000" Gust's Icer Air edit, complete with that one as the finale:
This right here is a shot of Derek Wilson doing a treeride-to-fakie, by Joey something-or-other.
The Roosevelt park in Downtown SJ is now open, or at least is supposed to be; the grand-opening date is December 11th, if memory serves me right. Should make for some great morning sessions.
The Halloween Jam at Fun Spot is now on Sunday, November 2nd, and is now the End of Summer Jam. It starts at noon, and the entrance fee is a five-dollar donation for Mike Aitken and two cans of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank. For more info, contact Crazy Chris, Mike Hernandez, or Jackson Allen. Also benefitting Aitken is a jam Justin Wendlandt is putting on at the Gilroy park on November 22nd. Click here to see the flyer.
And, now, a message...
Part two of Marco's Lotek SF edit is up on Vimby. Click here to watch it.
Mike Kohn sent me a new edit featuring some of the Walnut Creek locals:
Here's a photo that Dan Dunn took of Mike Marcelino: Proper fucking no-footer.

Elliott, tuck no-hander air.
Dakota, subbox fufanu.
Photos of Elliott by Cory, taken on a couple different days at the Morgan Hill park:
Drivin' that bus!
Street photos by Derek and Rigo, of Rigo and Derek:
Meet The Street photos and video on the Ride site, and Marco's edit for Vimby, which is way more entertaining than the Ride edits. There's also some photos that Joey took up on Unevenground. I didn't get a chance to look through all the footy I've got yet, but hopefully I'll have an edit done tomorrow night; I'd do it tonight, but I'll be at the Sharks-Blue Jackets game, so... yeah.
Icer Air is Saturday only, not Friday and Saturday, as I had previously posted. Mike's supposed to be sending a flier my way to post up, but for the time being, go to IcerAir.com for more info.
Crazy Chris is setting up a Halloween Jam at Fun Spot on Saturday, November 1st. Flier coming soon. The only real detail I have is that it's some sort of benefit for the homeless, and the entry fee is going to be two (or more) cans of food.
As always, we're always welcoming riders interested in getting into the balancing act. Hit me up at email@example.com if you're down for zero-offset set-ups on 17lb. bikes with four pegs. - Dion Dangzalan
