Jay Miron walks away from BMX

23 03 2010

In case you missed the big news this weekend, Jay Miron has sold Macneil Bikes and Ten Pack Distribution to his business partners, Darcy Saccucci and Jamie Macintosh. He’s also shut down the Metro Jam events. He’s walking away from BMX.

What can you say in a situation like this?

It seems too soon but you can’t knock the guy…he’s accomplished so many things and done so much for the BMX community.

Jay, thanks for the memories…and the 540 whips.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Loved this video! My son and I watched it together and now he wants front brakes. Anyone have any forks with brake mounts?

great video. but i don’t know- brakes and a helmet? if he’s not careful he could be setting a good example!!

at the level he was involved in the sport… i could see how someone could completely burn out and just want to walk away.

but give him time… he’ll be back in some way or form.
