Without even opening the video I can tell you that he used to race BMX for quite some time... The name off the top of my head is brandon? When i started racing in like 96/97 he was killin it and was pretty damn fast back then, Ive seen lots of MTB stuff with him as of late.

....exactly.

Imagine having the worst time on your bike possible (bad lap, squirreled out, ate dookie, broke a part, etc.) and letting out your frustrations. Then, imagine this guy saying back "Yeah? I've only got one leg."

I saw him race in Vegas back in 97 or 98 and always remember the lap he had. He was solid third or fourth when the lead riders tangled and one slid out. This guy takes the lead and the ENTIRE crowd was on their feet cheering for him. One of the riders just nipped him at the line and my only thought was- 'dude, there's no way I could've taken that from him'. The reality was though that I never saw a more exciting race to this date and he was out front giving it everything he had, with the whole crowd cheering him on. Absolutely the coolest moment in my entire BMX experience.

Pat Male.

The G.O.A.T. BMXer in my eyes.
Like Bill, I raced the 90's ABA national scene some & saw plenty of Pat at the races & the crowd loved him. If the race Bill is taking about is the one I'm thinking about it was featured on one of the "Crank" or "Pump" Fox TV shows at the time. It was a race like 14 novice & he had the lead till the last inch.
I had the chance to gate up with him in the late 90's in the 17 & over mixed open class & I always started sweating him knowing that he had mad skills once he got going. He was sponsored by Herdas Hotshots near the end of his BMXing days & the last I saw of him was around 00' or 01'? Great, great kid & was always very friendly. I'm glad he still rides & tears it up.

Here is some footage I took at the 99' ABA Reno nats. This footage doesn't do his racing justice but I can't find the other footage I have of him packed away somewhere.

I was going to save my "6666" post in here for something special & this thread is it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drinks.gif)
