2011 Old School BMX Reunion Day One
For the third year in a row I’ve made the trip down to Woodward West in Tehachapi, California, for what’s become my favorite event of the year: The Old School BMX Reunion. It’s sort of like a class reunion, only with 200-some-odd BMX freestyle pioneers from all over the world… all in one place. Many of these riders pro careers date back to the late 70s and early 80s.
This year many of the riders arrived later in the day, so day one was a bit mellower than in the past. Tomorrow is expected to be a bit more packed in and should see a heavier riding session. Today was mostly people getting into town, and playing catch up. So far, BMX legends floating around Woodward include Dennis McCoy, Joe Johnson, Gary Pollak, Dave Nourie, Pete Augustin (pictured above with Jimmy LeVan), Rich Sigur, Brian Blyther, and Eddie Fiola. You can check out some more photos and a small gallery from day one after the jump. I’ll post a more diverse gallery from day two tomorrow night.
