Old School BMX Reunion Recap

26 04 2013

For the past 5 years, Steve Swope has been an hosting an event called the Old School BMX Reunion at Woodward West.

It’s basically a chance for old school BMX heroes and old regular BMX Joes to get together and celebrate BMX.  It went down last week and it looks like it was a super fun time.

Trent Brocker has been attending for a while now and he (along with his friend, Dennis Dowling) managed to snap a few pics from the weekend.

Check ’em out.

To get a sense of what this weekend is all about, check out DionRidesBikes to get the perspective from someone attending the event for the first time. (Let’s just say, I think Dion is going to be attending every year from now on.)

BMX superheroes at Woodward West

Looks like Steve Swope is once again gathering the Superfriends (Old school BMX stars) at the Justice League (Woodward West)  to fight the forces of evil (for the Old School BMX Reunion).

The invite list features a “who’s who” of 80s BMX legends. Just check out the list of invitees for an instant Freestylin’ magazine flashback. Should be an awesome weekend…I’m really looking forward to checking out the photos and video from the event.

Former Plywood Hood, Brett Downs was there last year and clicked this sweet turndown on his Model-C to commemorate things.

Turndowns are just timeless, aren’t they?

It’s all going down Friday, April 2 – Sunday, April 4. Check out Kickstand BMX for all the details.
