2011 Old School BMX Reunion Day Two
Today was day two of the 2011 Old School BMX Reunion. Another full day of riding, along with an after party, complete with the Dave Nourie flatland demo that has become tradition. Some new faces showed up this year, including Fred Blood, Scotty Freeman, and Rick Allison. Bill Allen, the actor who played Cru Jones in the movie Rad, made an appearance, along with Jose Yanez, who was the first rider to do a backflip. Jose is most well known as the guy who did the backflip stunt work for Bill Allen in Rad.
Woodward West opened up its Mega Ramp for a three hour session. In theory, given the group of 40-somethings, this could have killed some people, or broken some hips, but it actually went over pretty well, and things stayed relatively safe. A few riders jumped the gap for the first time, while others focused on just the quarterpipe, and Mat Hoffman blasted a few giant airs. There were a few scary moments to watch, and honestly a lot more people played around on it than I expected, but fortunately, no old men down.
It was an incredibly diverse group this year, and once again, well worth the trip to California. If you missed day one, check out those photos here. Check out the photos from day two after the jump.
