VitalBMX just gave honors to Demolition Legend/Hall of Fame Rider Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla for having one of the Top Ten Best BMX Video Part Songs from his part in Etnies “Forward” (2002). While it may not be an official ESPY or a Golden Popcorn, and there’s always an element of personal opinion, I’d say they hit the nail on the head here. As progressive, fast-paced, timeless, and just jaw-dropping as Rooftop’s part is in this video, it really needed an equally fast-paced and timeless song. “Kids of the Black Hole” by Adolescents really rounded it out well. His section was the pace-setter for “Forward” by opening up the whole video…..Oh, and the Rooftop on fire scene was absolutely and unashamedly filmed in our old warehouse. Watch his part, scour the recesses of the internet for the rest of the sections, and watch his last Demolition edit after you’ve watched this. Then go backflip over a helicopter off of a rail….on fire.
We’re so stoked to finally get out our new 2015 goods this year that we’ve been showing off since 2014′s Interbike show.

So we’ve posted the edits from the Markit New Years Cash Jam this morning and here are the photos from the day. So just in case you missed something amongst the madness you can see it here in still form. It’s always awesome to see photos to go along with clips so you get that extra chance to look over the craziest moves from the day and see all the details of the trick that makes them so rad. Be sure to click on the post and check out all photos from the crazy shit that went down during the Markit New Years Cash Jam.
So the Markit Cash Jam is in the books and what a blast it was! There was an awesome mix of Pro riders, who have ridden the ramp before and knew the lines, and Am riders who had never step foot on the Markit ramps and had to figure out the ramp on the spot. Regardless of Pros or Ams, everyone killed it and everyone had a chance to win some cash for killing it! The jam started off with the highest alleyoop over the hip, then Demolition’s Satellite Slayer, followed by East County BMX’s Euro Jam and then they day wrapped up with an overall ramp cash jam where if you did something crazy you got instant cash money. Here is Dig’s perspective from the jam courtesy of DOEBY and be sure to click on the post in order to check out the Jam edits from Vital and RideBMX!
