Has the canadian beast, lost it. and i quote. page 80 new issue of ride
“I wish all the old has-been vert riders and the media who still idolize them would ralize they don’t matter any more.and rather than promote themselves, they should use their fame and influenece to promote the types of riding that riders actullay care about”
WTF is up with that? I have never been a big jay fan, but damn he sounds bitter about something. So should we forget DMC-HOFFMANN-LORD VOELKER???? Josh White, yeah that’s stretching it. But you see my point.
I did not see any has beens at the gravity games,or the x-games. Maybe macneil bikes is not doing that good. Or maybe cause he get’s his ASS handed to him at contests. Face it he never was as good as matt. I think that is who he is taking a shot at. I know that he left H.B bikes years ago but did something happen? If some one can explain what is happening please tell meApril 3, 2006 at 10:50 pm #29660

well he is from canada I truly dont know i have not talked to him in a whileJune 1, 2006 at 1:00 am #31152soulsoda37Member
i am gunna take a shot at this, in my opinion, i would say he ment simply out with the old and in with the new, just a poor choice of wording on his part. i doubt it was a personal atack at any of the vert riders considering he is including himself in the comment by saying “promoting themselves” he spent how many years riding for his own company on vert and street promoting himself. there is so many new riders and only so much media and coverage to go around. Alot of people think “ok we have seen so and so do a tilt awhirl on vert 10 years ago, what is lil jonny doing on street, ramp or flat that no one has ever seen or heard off”
Vert will always be a top draw for the TV media, it has the longest run time on TV do to its nature, the rider(billboard) is a major focal point and the advertisers want the most out of there advertising dollers.
disclamer: i think jay is an awsome rider and has obviously done and continues to do alot for bmx.
