Badass BMX

1. BMX Day in Chicago.

From BMX Union:

Saturday, July 18th was international BMX day. Monster Energy threw a massive 5 event day with Street Series jams going down in Riga, Latvia, Glasgow, Scotland, Nagoya, Japan, Chicago, Illinois and San Francisco, California. BMX Union is excited to present to you a video from the Monster Energy Street Series stop in Chicago! Despite being incredibly hot with temps in the 90's, there was a massive turn out of riders. This video features riding from Timmy Theus, Dan Kruk, Trent McDaniel, Joe Jarvis, Dylan Gold, Alex Duleba, Mike Stahl, Austin Auginbaugh, Julias Carrasquillo, Dylan McCauley, Mike Strong and Carlo Hoffmann! Filmed and edited by Andrew Brady.

2. Mic'd Up.

From Ride BMX:

Lacey is one straight-forward, funny mother fucker. So, when I strapped to a mic to him at the beginning of the Chicago stop of The Street Series, I knew this would end up being a long edit. From dealing with security, whispering sweet nothings in my ear, and talking a bit of shit, Lacey pretty much had commentary for everything. Besides a couple of missed clips at the last spot (I had to go get something to drink), I think this video does a pretty proper job of showing all the good times that were had in Chicago. Thanks to Monster for organizing this, Kachinsky for doing the ground work, Lacey for being a part of this, and all the locals for coming out and making #bmxday a huge success.

3. R.I.P. Glenn Salyers.

The BMX community took a massive blow this morning with the news that Glenn Salyers has passed away as a result of a tragic motorcycle accident. Glenn was an incredibly talented man on a bike, and the outpouring of grief and support via social media this morning proves he was an amazing person as well. We will follow up with more information when it becomes available, but for the time being please feel free to use the comments as an open forum to share any stories or memories of Glenn. Best wishes to his friends and family.

For those of you who may not be familiar, check out his completely incredible video of Glenn that dropped a couple of months ago above, and more amazing videos here.
