Last event I did was the VANS US Open bowl comp where I destroyed my leg and couldn’t walk for a week, well it all healed up just in time for the next VANS contest called Ecsc it’s a massive surf comp on the east coast and they always rock!! I got 3rd place last year so I had high hopes and after my final run I ended up in 4th this year so pumped. Scotty Cranmer and Sandaval where battling for the win and Sandaval came out on top killing it.
Thanks jerry at vans for a good time!! Photos by Colin Mackay.
Got a reminder from my friends back east, in Santa Cruz California, how awesome it is to follow your dreams, and build your own life, Miss you Dudes, Hope all is well in Sasquatch Canyon!
Do something awesome today!
In an effort to research event atmosphere for the upcoming Birthday party for FBM, and celebratory hotdog eating contest, I went to an event hosted by Vans BMX, at the 52nd annual East Coast Surf Championship in Virginia Beach.
Dennis Mccoy, his wife Parridy, and Jerry Badders, along with a serious crew of Vans Affiliated athletes put on a great show, including a vert ramp demo, I got to witness Rickey Mosely and a woman in the same spider print stretch pants, and a park contest with 20 world class riders invited to compete to a serious amount of cash. By all accounts, Vans seems to do right by their riders,and help share some of what’s awesome about BMX with an otherwise numb audience.
It was great to see riders, supporting their sponsors, and vice versa, in a mellow, friendly event that got people generally stoked, minus one moment, when a rider, unhappy with the qualifying results, balked at boycotting riding in the finals, because he was unhappy that one of his team mates qualified better than he thought he should have. It was a despicable display of spoiled selfish behavior, and poor sportsmanship. He went on to win, in an aggressive vengeful riding style. His runs were filled with dialed tricks, big air, and seemingly less than warm reception from onlookers, sensing his demeanor. My only hope is that the Hot Dog eating contest see’s some friendlier laid back competition. In stark contrast, the second place rider in the event, shared his bike with his younger brother, who’s bike had issues, during his first ever Pro contest. That was rad, and they both rode with smiles.
Shout outs to all the riders at the ECSC that set a good example for BMX, by being positive, appreciating the efforts of the event organizers, and putting on a good show, we are lucky the venue wasn’t set up with a razor scooter demo, or something awful like that, in wake of some of the lame shit some BMXer’s put on display.
Our main man of many jobs within the company, Cooper Brownlee turns 33 today !! Happy birthday Coops !! To celebrate in true Cooper fashion, he is going out & filming with some of the team. Cooper lives & breathes BMX like no other. Happy birthday mate !!
In other news, Cooper will be coming up to Brisbane for the week ahead before heading off to the USA for a month long trip over there with the team. He will be travelling all over the west coast & a trip to the east coast as well. Living the dream.
