OG Scot Draper made the drive from Austin to help us perform in front of thousands in Louisiana. The shows were amazing and he came through with his flawless jumping style and ability to make anyone laugh, just by laughing. He is essential when it comes to getting kids psyched on BMX bicycles and the Sunday BMX rider is welcomed at every show he can attend.
Poor Jake spent 16 hours in a car each way just to get food poisoning and missing the shows. He jumped a total of 3 times the entire weekend and this was one of them. He has that Michael Jordan ability to do better when he is sick. Glad he is feeling better.
Draper was in his 30’s when he learned how to backflip and that makes me really, really happy. Progression is always possible to those with an open mind. He has been throwing these down on the regular and is on his way back to Windell’s in Portland OR as we speak to build trails and live the endless summer dream.
Scot’s partner in crime is Lil Jon and anytime they are together hilarity ensues. Here is a quick 360 before bailing out of every backflip he tried for the weekend. Don’t fret, he’s back and smiling after every one!
And what is an update without a Crazy Dan picture. Tire grab at height while trying to relearn 360’s for the millionth time in his life. Just don’t drop your shoulder Dan!!!!!!
