This is just my opinion but I felt this site has been kinda 80's related, no offense, just wasn't my time period so I figured I'd show the youngsters how it was done in the time of Motomags and REAL downhill tracks, with dust, rocks, ruts, stuff alot of you guys have never seen on a BMX track....
Let's start off with a little jumping, 70's style..

John Wells(Silver Shield Bike Shop Team) on the berm at Merritt College on his Champion, late 75-early76. No grooming that berm. If you got into those marbles on the inside you were in a world of hurt.

John Wells, this is the other side of the berm....hey kiddies, look at how rough that track was, the way all tracks were for the most part back then. The only grooming that was done was with our tires.
