Over the past month I have found myself in a few amazing extra curricular activities that Fairdale fans may not know about. For the last 3 years I have helped put on the Texas Toast Jam and the 3rd edition went down a few weeks ago. Also, last week I helped out with the Redbull Urban Rhythm event as a ramp builder/ designer. Although none of these events were exactly Fairdale related it might be interesting to see some of the other things we get involved with over here at Fairdale.  There’s a really cool documentary about Texas Toast from Odyssey BMX that is worth checking out.

I think this video sums up the events pretty well. There is also a ton of amazing video coverage and photos on the texastoastjam.com website.

Here’s a pretty cool little promo video from the Ride BMX website for the Urban Rhythm event. This one just happened a couple days ago so I guess the full video will be coming soon. Ride BMX also has this photo gallery up. This was an interesting event to be a part of. I brought in my Toast builders Ryan Corrigan and Jeremy Hrabal and they did an incredible job building the ramps inside some very specific parameters.
