I see Donovan Ritter, Martin A, Eddie Fiola, Drob, Lord Voelker, Mat Hoffman....it's hard to see some of the faces because of the shadows.

Pete Augustin, Scott Freeman and Tony Murray too!

It was a great day. I hadn't seen those guys in over 20 years.

Can someone mock up the photo with names so we all can see?

Re: How many old school Freestylers can you name?

I was goin to say Robert and Scotty...
Wow RAD.
And RAD again, Eddie and Martin are showing up every where these days lol. In 1988 I met the DYNO TEAM when they came to Brampton and Mississauga Ontario for summer tour. Lord Volker posed for pics and autographs with me. I talk to Mike Canning SKYWAY UK RIDER a few years back, then I meet Eddie and Martian at RAD 25 In Calgary/Cochrane and now talked to Robert Peterson. All super nice guys. Amazing riders. All legends.
Its a trip when you get to talk to ur childhood BMX heros. Its nice to..communicate as men. But my mind wants to revert back to that of a 12 year old and talk these guys ears off lol.
Sorry fellas. Ur freestyle royalty, like gods to us.rollcool

Heres my profound, life changing statement.
Lifes a bitch..PASS ME A BEER.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

I had Gabe Weed sign my stem on my bike at a GT freestyle show in the early 2000s.  Does anyone remember him?

not sure if you were referring to me or someone else but unfortunately I let my bike sit outside alot as a kid and the autograph wore off.  I do have an old JNCO shirt from the around the same time that has some GT riders signatures.  My local bike shop would have the GT team come to town every summer and put on a show at the park and eventually the city built a skate park so they started doing their show their instead.

I was referring to the OP, but cool info. big_smile

I wish there was more stuff like that around these parts.  It may have helped me stick with BMX all along, instead of trying to make up for 20 years lost...Also, a warmer climate would add 3mos more of BMX fun. lol
