Sweet little edit from Fly Bikes transition boss Matt and Robbo from Kore Store As seen on Dig BMX.
I went to the 1997 BMX Worlds in Eindhoven. Got there pretty late and there was a spine contest in full swing on the biggest (must have been 8ft+) spine set up you’ve ever seen. Dave Osato was killing it alongside a random Spanish guy with the full hucker kit; this is the only evidence I could find that the hucker in Eindhoven might have been the style god (and all around legend) known as Ruben;
Front brake – check
44t Sprocket – check
Gloves – check
2 x 48g wheels – check
Pierced headtube – check
Tripled walled rims – check

30 years is an eternity in the BMX business and we’re psyched to be with Odyssey during this year’s celebrations. Buying a product from a company with type of heritage should definitely give riders some reassurance. Not least because the lifetime warranty on 41thermal prodcuts then counts for a lot.
Most of you will remember Broc from this year’s Odyssey Ride To Glory. Another good lad with unbelievable bike control.
Really happy to see this news last night. When Mark Burnett arrived in the UK this Summer a few people had no idea who he was. Anyone that saw the lad ride and (more importantly) got some insight into Mark’s personality wont be surprised – a good move from Sunday!
