It looks like there will be no flatland event at the 2013 Texas Toast Jam. Read below to see what is the reason.
“We thought we had a new venue sorted out for Toast that would have given us more room and we have planned from the beginning to include flat. However, due to some city red tape that venue fell through just recently. Luckily we were able too work out a deal to have Toast at the same lumber yard it was last year. Since the city of Austin is seeing explosive growth right now the lumber yard is busier than ever! It is literally packed with lumber and building materials. The warehouse we used for flat last year is going to be off limits to us. Although it seem like hosting a flatland contest would be the easiest of all events (with no ramps to build) it actually can be quite challenging to find good flat ground. The lumberyard really has no alternative space that we could use for flat. We had considered doing an invite only event in between the ramps on the street course but that seemed to be getting away from the original idea of Toast. We want everyone to be able to have fun and ride. Flat on the street course would mean minimal practice for the riders and only a select group of folks would even get to ride (because the street course is so busy with street).”– Odyssey
Not long ago we posted the news that Kevin Porter parted ways with his long time sponsor Fly Bikes and look what happened now. Kevin dropped this Instagram video showing support to his new sponsors, Mutiny and Odyssey.
I know a lot of you were waiting for this to happen and it finally did. Odyssey brought Tripod seat system to their Monogram seat which is available now.

Not long ago someone asked when will Odyssey start bringing Tripod system to their seats. The mystery is no more.

This upcoming Sunday, September 1st, 2013, there will be a grand opening of the new BMX shop, Let’s Roast Cycles, in Chicago, so make sure you be there if you are living anywhere near the place. There will also be Odyssey and Sunday Bikes prop Aaron Ross hanging around.
And here we have it now, finally. The winning section from The Hunt 2012 video contest featuring no other than Ed Zunda has dropped on the web as part of Ride BMX’S Monday Edits. Three minutes of solid street riding, style and simply amazing stuff. Ed really killed it with his section and no wonder why he earned himself a spot on the Odyssey team and a trip to Hawaii.
