I filmed this one about a month-and-a-half ago, finally got around to editing it a week or so back, and now it’s up on ESPN. Also, here’s a brief history of the ramp, according to Oscar:
My backyard mini-ramp is the original 16-foot wide mini-ramp that was at the San Jose Ramp Club. When the Ramp Club closed in 2001, it got transferred all the way up to Sacramento. Aaron Huff and the guys at Solid bought it, but they never did anything with it, and just kept it in their warehouse. In 2003, Squirrel and Tony Campos’ dad, Guillermo, went up to Sac and trucked these ramps back down, because Squirrel was going to open up a park in Morgan Hill. That fell through, and Squirrel called me, and asked if I wanted the pieces of the mini-ramp. So, if you look at my ramp, the original 16-foot wide section that’s 6-1/2 feet tall is the original SJRC mini-ramp. I added the extra ten feet and the sub box later.

I’m still trying to determine if Squirrel was serious with all of his oddly-formatted cut-and-paste posts in Squirrel’s Nuts, or if all the crazy talk was just an allusion to his birthday party. Regardless, it was an awesome party, and the new Ramp Rats is rad. Here’s some photos that Luke Otten shot. Video coming… as soon as I get around to it.

I finished this one up for Ride BMX a couple weeks ago, but it didn’t go up until this morning. Anyway, this one’s got footage from Benicia, Martinez, Berkeley, Pleasanton, Fun Spot, Greer, and Cunningham, Roosevelt, Mayfair, Stonegate, and Plata Arroyo Parks in San Jose, and is made up of older footage that I’ve been sitting on, along with a lot of newer footy.

Jackson took a lot of photos at the jam last Saturday. There was a real good turnout, with a lot of shredding going down. The crowd voted for the top three by way of a ballot, and Andrew Lang took home first place, with Jason Lopez and Cameron Birdwell in second and third. The riders voted for best trick, with Cam coming out on top for, as he put it, “the best superman seatgrab peggrab I’ve ever done.” I’m working on my edit right now, but Alec Hugo’s on the ball and already finished his, which you can see after the jump.
