Keep a look out for razor scooter kids taking tarps off the jumps and trying to ride there little razor sharp wheels into the dirt. What a lack of respect but most of them are really young and prolly dont even have a clue what they are doing. Its a damm shame but how do you stop them or what do you do if you catch them in the act. At least we got a new edit from Doug from the end of the trail season, so check that out. Dont forget the Cranx jam on December 14th, its cold as heck already so indoor sessions are a good relief.
Winter is pretty much here with below freezing temps and windy most days, so we got some stuff in store for this winter to get you thru the crap east coast winters. Cranx skatepark in Syracuse, NY is nice enough to let us have a jam at their park on December 14th and part of the profit that day goes to the trails. Thanks to the sponsors and Angel and Dale for setting this up. If you never been there its definitely worth it with a really long trail style jump line. We also might have some other parks on the east coast doing similar stuff throughout the winter so keep your eyes open for that. Check out the Belgium’s photo gallery here for all the photos they took while in American. Also check out the ECD website for a bunch of pics from the Halloween jam and while your there check out all the info on Butcher’s new bike shop in the area… support local
Wow what a day, Im pretty sure that was the most successful jam ever. I cant believe how many people showed up despite the cold weather, and many thanks for all the donations. Once again shout out to S&M, Fit Bikes, Empire, and Mutiny for being great sponsors. It sucks it was so dry and trails blew out pretty bad by the end of the day but whatever everyone seemed to have a good time and its the end of the trail season so what a great way to go out. Check out Instagram for lots of pics and videos people have uploaded, Angel has already posted a gallery on trailrambling.com and Im sure other videos and stuff will be popping up soon. Also wanna thank Treebell for always making rad stuff to sell, this year it was bandanas, and Ted for grilling up food
The Belgiums have impressed everyone in the states with there riding, good to have them around
The English crew always come thru with rad costumes

Few reminders for the jam, it’s cold and windy so the trails might not ride to well so sorry in advance for that. Everyone please try to donate money we hate asking for money but at some jams guys will just ride roller run and not donate anything, buy food, shirts, etc. Say whats up to the locals and respect the trails. For those who don’t know there is no drinking and drugs at the trails due to the insurance. This shouldn’t even have to be said but some people think it’s our rule buts it not, so if someone is stupid enough to do drink or whatever Catty and Posh could get plowed in the process. Hope to see you all there in your costumes…
Autumn sessions in full effect, get hyped for the Halloween jam which is less then 2 weeks away on October 26th. Remember to bring cash will have food for sale, posters, etc all kinds of new goodies. Swantz put in effect a new trash rule which is whatever you bring to the woods take it back with you. Keep the woods clean we cant keep up with the trash anymore so please try to obey this. In other sweet news Treebell got a camera and made an edit already, its got a 1990s feel which is awesome and should get you stoked for the jam and all the new little lines that connect everything together. Once again big thanks to all the sponsors we couldn’t do it without you. Barnhart is also doing a photo show at Axelrad after the jam, so yeah lots of goodness going on.. get pumped
Mutiny Bikes was nice enough to send out a new Villij frame for the jam. Robbo will be at the jam so figure why not have him pick the best costume and winner gets the frame. So you have 26 days to come up with a sweet costume, check below for ideas. Hopefully will have other stuff to give away and raffle off or something. Definitely couldn’t do it without all the great sponsors, support those companies, they know whats good for BMX. The weather is great now so enjoy the autumn sessions, so many foreigners in town there’s always a good session going down.
