Last Saturday...

Well, that was bananas.

If you were lucky enough to have been here at TX last Saturday for the Cult/Federal shop signing at 20Twenty and skatepark demo you will know what I mean. If you missed it you will have to wait for the pics and videos to emerge over the next few weeks to get an idea of the atmosphere and the level of riding we were treated to. It really was great to see how many faces, young and old, came out for the occasion to witness some superhuman feats of BMX riding. The effort that was made by Mike and his team at 20Twenty alongside TX skatepark staff to get the park and shop ready for the event really paid off, giving TX a burst of welcome freshness that really added to the success of the event.

Its On...

Big thanks to everyone that has been involved in this weekends demo, getting the park looking spic and span with some tasty new obstacles and decorations. The demo is due to kick off tomorrow at 2 but head down earlier for a chance to meet the pros at the 20Twenty instore signing and stick around afterwards for the BMX only session for the rest of the day.

Just to re-iterate...This will be a BMX ONLY SESSION from 2pm onwards so please do not come for a skate as you will not be allowed into the session.

Whether you ride BMX or not you will not want to miss out on this!

Have a peep at Mike Ellingtons wee video of some of the prep work that has been going on for tomorrow
