Sat August 5th marked the second consecutive week that there were Sinister Jump Jams! The guys are going out and throwing down, this time in front of a rock concert featuring 11 local bands, called "Rock the Whale"! The event was put on by our friends at Whaleback mountain(www.whaleback.com)which is a ski, board, skate, inline, bike training facility run by former Olympic freestyle skiier, Evan Dybig and his amazing crew Dylan and Miles. Check this place out if you need a place to rip year around!
Some of the usual crew were there of course like Derek Stevens, Clint Mcmahon, Sasha "Yak Attack", Zach Faulkner and Scott Moody while there were a couple new guys helping out the cause from Cape Cod, Chip Morash and Ragin Rocco. To show we are really all about the love, we let those guys rail the jumps despite them riding 2 of our competitors bikes! Anyway, there were lots of mullets, girls in bikinis and plenty of good people watching as everyone seemed to take a step back in time to about 1991 and come and and RAWK! The crew jumped 3 times during the event, during set breaks and once again, I acted as MC. Sasha "Yak Attack" says he laughs every time he hears me call out his name, just like I'm announcing a WWF wrestler!
Everyone was going off and pushing their limits and once again, Derek Stevens took a beating despite landing some of the sickest tricks of the jam. Final injury tally after the weekend for old DS....a broken nose, hairline fracture of his ankle and sprained wrist! And he was ripping around the sweet NBL BMX track doing 1 legged races! the kid is a warrior both on bikes and even more so(in his words)on a snowboard!
A killer time was had by all...i'm truly proud of the whole crew who stepped up again and threw down for the love!
