Here’s a couple photos of the over/under line and one of a shirt I made today. I’ve been putting together a video of all the scrap clips I have, it should be up tonight. I have tons of scrap clips because I’m still learning to use the dvx, but don’t be misled by the quality of this stuff, the good shots I have look nice.
It finally rained and the trails are looking awesome. We had probably the best session of the year Monday with Colin and Jesse from the valley; David Clay was in full effect, doing the biggest stuff with the smallest bars. The over/under line is finally working, the berm is packed and it’s jumpable (I know, because I did yesterday). It’s supposed to rain again Sunday, lets get a session going.
I’ll post some photos tonight when I get home.
Here’s an except from an awesome thread on bmxboard in which Charlie Crumlish interprets a myspace post by Blackman….

Interpreted by Charlie Crumlish:
I’m largely disappointed at the prejudice and unfair portion of blame I’ve been receiving as of late. Nobody lost their life at the Banks, my collegue BooJew and I had a minor disagreement. Unfortunately, he left before I was able to express my unhappiness with the nasal fracture he had administered upon me some time ago. The rest of my companions had, at this point, deemed this a proper time to retire, when a number of young rascals began what I can only refer to as horseplay, in a rather violent manner. My friend Mel and I had just ridden our cycles into the Bronx for a light dinner, when the authorities appeared, and began to ask questions that did not strike me as favorable, in relation with my near to semi-distant future. The police, you see, were under the impression that I had violated some sort of law, and I considered it in my best interest to return to my home and think the evening through with a steaming cup of my good friend Earl Grey. My mentors Richard Ross and 50 Centennial can collaborate my story.
Ryan’s been working on a webvideo forever, but he had some problems formatting it;
this is the best he could get it to upload before he quit, the footage is actually really good looking though, so maybe we’ll pull some of it for the video.
We’ve added one more rider to round off the Alaska team for now. Above this is a screen grab of David Clay; it’s a dirt bike clip, I haven’t pulled out any bmx stuff yet. On a side note, I was pretty stoked on how the colours turned out in this shot. Expect some awesome things from this guy, he’s got some ridiculous skills on a bike.
We’re still planning a roadtrip to Fairbanks soon here…
