You watch the sick footage. You’ve witnessed the intense contests. But what is it really like being a sick BMX athlete traveling to another country for a big competition in a foreign land? Chances are, you probably have no idea. Oakley’s BMX Star Josh Harrington is giving you an inside look of his recent trip to the Eastern European country of Estonia for the Simpel Sesssion Contest (Oakley-sponsored). Don’t miss this exclusive look from our friends at Defgrip.
Oh, the beloved Frogskins. A timeless design that first sent shock waves through the BMX world back in the mid-80’s, the ever-popular “Froggies” are still as popular in the action sports and BMX world as they ever were. So popular, in fact, that a pair was blown up…big time…to “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” status for the Oakley-sponsored Texas Toast Jam event in Austin, Texas last week. Featuring the best riders on the Planet, including Oakley’s own BMX Star Chase Hawk (qualified in first place, finished second overall), the extravaganza was graced by dirt jumping, street events, mini contests (bunny hop high jump and rail jam) and the much-hyped, super scary ‘Gauntlet of Death’ obstacle course – plus bands, food, drinks, after parties, a video premiere and more. Sufficed to say, it absolutely went off. As a premiere obstacle in the Gauntlet of Death, the newly feared Froggies were as much of a death trap for riders as they were a super stylin’ addition to the landscape.
Josh is back on the street. And ripping as always. Mr. Harrington’s new video from Premium Products just dropped. And it’s pretty sick, as expected. Peep Josh’s World travels and big time repping of the Big O on rails everywhere…
