Welcome to Riverside, California! Not only was this one of the BMX dirt jumping capitals of the entire country, it has also been home to many professional BMX riders and even where I used to live myself. It feels great to be back in Riverside.
This week on tour we have high school tour veterans Coco Zurita and Mykel Larrin, Alex Landeros, special guests Anthony Napolitan and Gabe Weed, and for the first time ever, X-Games Medalist and local rider from right here in Riverside Pat Casey has joined the tour! Tyler Hank our favorite Team Manager is back on tour and I will be once again taking the microphone as our tour emcee.
We hit up a variety of great schools all over Riverside including Redlands, San Bernadino, even Downtown Riverside. The schools were incredible and loved cheering on their local hometown hero & X-Games Medalist Pat Casey. And talk about student machines on the Marine’s pull up bar as well! The kids loved it, all the students were really supporting & getting behind each other during the challenges. The Marines had a great variety of prizes at each school this week too, really great work as always from the Marines.
Another fun highlight of the entire week, outside of all the great Kabob shops we found, of course, is when we went to visit and ride Pat’s “Dreamyard”. It is a private pro BMX dirt & skatepark right in his own backyard. The team got to see some behind the scenes work that Pat has been working on lately, and also catch up with his family & kids! Thanks again so much for inviting the team out Pat.
Really great vibes all around in Riverside. Definitely a treat to bring the tour into town here, we certainly hope to be back! Huge shout out and thank you to all staff members & volunteers at the schools, all students, Marines, Anti-Defamation Leauge, thank you all so much for an incredible week out here. Next week we head to Ventura & Santa Barbara!
