El Cid was awesome. I liked those two-tone bikes too. Did anyone notice Woody Itson in the background?

I remember Phil Dolan came up to us @ Southbank one time and asked "You wanna swap your frame for my chrome Revcore"?!
Nah mate. Boss frame.

I had this whole contest on VHS...including flatland runs by Mike Dominguez, and Donovan "The Rippin'" Ritter...if I remember correctly.

The two tone Redlines were dope. Chrome/colors...I had a "Hazard Yellow" RL-20. It was my first "good" BMX bike.

Oh, also wanted to add that the backwards Infinity Roll he does at the end was the first time he debuted that trick.

Effraim...do you know if the NFA was started by Richard Hutchins? I believe it was, if I remember correctly.

Speaking of Hutch, I'm stoked to get to ride with John Yull every weekend!
