Old farts going all crazy at this courter pipe Haro build at the Texas Toast Jam for this best trick and highest air challenge. Riders like Leigh Ramsdell, Kevin Gutierrez, Troy McMurray, Eben Krackau, Fids and Pat Millar went high in the sky and also pulled plenty of super rad stuff and also crashed hard. This is awesome, seeing all these guys still shredding hard. Seen on Ride.
OK, something big is going on over at Eastern Bikes at the moment. Leigh Ramsdell was with Eastern since 2000, first at heir professional team rider and later as team managed and finally media creator, but now he is parting ways with them. Does this means Leigh is starting something new? Is he taking Karl Poynter and Zach Rogers with him also? Read word from Leigh and Mike Corley about the situation over on their site.
Nick DiGeroloma and Eastern Bikes parted ways today. No more info where Nick is going next, but read below what they have to say about it.
“Nick DiGeroloma and Eastern Bikes are parting ways. Nick is an incredible rider and awesome person who kicked ass promoting Eastern and BMX in general. We wish Nick the best and can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeves next. Thanks for everything Nick!”– Eastern Bikes

Eastern Bikes did a remix of their Mega Tour 9 from back in 2009, where they sent Adam Banton, Eric Holley, Phil Jones, Karl Poynter and Leigh Ramsdell on a trip from Chicago to Minneapolis hitting different spots on the way. I need to say that I really miss Eric Holley and his riding, this dude was/is killing it so hard.
Leigh Ramsdell and Hal Brindley are the guys behind the Oldschool BMX project, where they are trying to get back 10 most famous T-shirt designs they printed while still owning their old brands. Here is a video to show you the story and the project they are trying to achieve. This is so awesome.

“Another year has gone by and we wanted to start off 2013 with a few Best Of videos. This one is of Zachery Rogers and it does not disappoint. I have to say I am stoked to have watched Zach progress from before he got on Eastern to now. And I am proud to call him a good friend. Here’s to 2013 buddy!”– Leigh Ramsdell, Eastern Bikes
