When the guys in the Machine shop are better than some people that get paid to ride bikes, you have to be stoked. The corts brothers, also known as Team Major Air, are f-ing awesome. J. Pavia and his half fingered gloves sent this sequence to us, and it’s Big Corts at East Coast Terminal. Big Dave told John he had to pull it in 3 tries, or do the dishes all week. Kelly Baker won the super bowl, so congrats to him. There has been some chatter about our pic for the Vid comtest, and the winner, Tyler Bergstrom, Tyler called me this weekend, from Shads cell phone, at Goods in Portland, and he was stoked. Some People thought Tylers part wasn’t filmed good enough, or that he didn’t do enough tricks, I don’t give a shit, here’s a couple reasons we picked him, His buddies are laughing in the background while they filmed, he wrote FBM on his beer gut and ate shit with no shirt on, we never heard of him, he was riding a piece of shit bike, and it looked like him and his friends love BMX. Simple enough, it was just cool, filmed shitty, spots we’ve never seen, and it had Ted Nugent, and I hate Ted Nugent. Alot of the other entries were amazing, and the guys who sent in tapes, some of them were flat out badasses, and can probably all get sponsored. We gave Tyler a bike for his efforts, no big deal. Maybe we’ll do it again next summer. In other news, Rick Thorne called me this weekend, about our shittalking on the website. I might have taken some things Rick said, out of context, and been pissed at him, and I definitely let him have it a few times, but he might not be such a bad guy, we talked a bit, I still think he is strange, and way out there, but he is into BMX, and has been for a long time, so I guess he aint all bad. Who Knows, Its just bike riding anyhow, lets just have some fun.
