News & Updates
Episode # 49 - What a great day in Central Jersey interviewing and riding with Mike Maloney (@defconfour on IG) my good friend Don Bunnell (@donatdnt) for #thebmxinourblood . Mike is an awesome talent that works custom frame building into his spare time. He has produced some beautiful bikes including one we didn't get to talk about, a belt drive bike! Also cranks and hubs! Don sat in on the interview and talked history like only an old timer can ;) Look for the pictures on my @gromdad2000 IG account. So not only can he fab a frame really well but he can ride all wheel size bikes and well while testing. Anyway, this was just the kind of day I needed and came home from Central Jersey with a big smile on my face! If you have interest in a custom of any size you can message Mike Maloney on IG at @defconfour

Episode #48 - What a weekend with the induction of @brianfoster to the BMX HOF and Satoski Enda (@trailswarrior) as the Nora Cup winner for best trail rider. If you haven't listened to the BF interview do yourself a favor and do it. Perfect lead up to last night's ceremony. Also, Satoski will be interviewed in about 2 weeks!
I hadn't been to the @poshwoods High Air Contests and didn't want to miss this year! Glad I didn't! The low key @end.ever hit the high notes on his way to winning BOTH high air and best whip! Haven't seen that dramatic of a double since Todd Lyons reminded us again on IG of how awesome he is/was at the Orlando Worlds! Just kidding Turbo, you are the man and killing the goal of getting people on bikes. Much respect. So this contest report show has me meandering around the Posh trails and finishes with the opinion of @derekwhips_oakwoodsof the Oakwood Trails who watched it online and gave me his version of the wrap-up of the event since I didn't record one there. Thanks Derek! Be at Derek's Oakwoods Trails for their jam on 9/29 in West Brookfield, MA!

Episode #47.2 - Brian Foster Part 2! If you liked Part 1 you will love Part 2. We talk about his HOF nomination, 6 month suspension, transition to full time trail and park riding, mid school track smarts and of course the rock in his life, Dr Jennifer Foster. We also touch on some of the strong characteristics of the Strelecki family that have driven his in-law family to success. Definitely an episode that I feel really good about. The next time you see Brian Foster, give him a high 5 for his determination, staying power and relevancy that he seems to have naturally along with a laid back disposition. Also, big thanks to www.powerbikeshop.com (@powersbikeshop) for stepping up to sponsor the show, I'm extremely grateful for this. Having Powers partner as a show sponsor, along with a few more in the works, will allow me to take the show on the road even more and farther. I have some big goals that will happen!

Episode #47 - Brian Foster Part 1...who would have guessed anyone could nail down BF let alone for over 4-1/2 hours. I feel pretty damn grateful and honored. We talked about everything from family to education to BMX, of course. These interviews are pretty loose so it allowed BF to digress at will. That made the interview really relaxed to say the least. Next week's episode (Part 2) things get even more entertaining as we talk about everything from the BMX Hall of Fame induction (coming up on September 8th, drugs in BMX, John Purse wrestling matches and more. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Sorry for the cicadas noise in the background for the 1st little bit, they do go away! Have a great week! - Joe
Episode #46 - Vinny Mannino has to be the most unassuming guy on and off of a BMX bike. He can ride anything, educate you on anything investment related, coach bmx kids, does BMX shows and has a deep appreciation of his family (his father and @bigscottbmx are two of my favorite guys). He really is a pleasure to talk to. Although he is a major part of the Scotty Cranmer YouTube channel, Vinny is very much his own man. If you want a sincere pair of ears to listen to, he is your man.
Episode #45 - Colton Civitello has been a little bit of a mystery to me because we only see each other a few times a year at events and haven't had the time to get to know him. Now I have! So interesting to hear how Colton balances his time between his full time job as a machinist and his part time job as a rider for multiple trick teams....and his hobbies of working on his off road trucks and riding quads. I especially loved that he doesn't consider himself a trails guy even though he rips through some of the hardest trails and contest lines. His specialty is park and he is great at it. He has spent lots of time at the Incline Club before it's closure.

Episode #44 - After a wild few weeks leading up to the #FindYourFight Jam, the dust has settled and Joe got a chance to head down to the beach and have a conversation with two of my favorite hometown dudes, Russ Barone and Kenny Hirsch. I've known these kids a long, long time and have seen them do it all. I am personally stoked to listen to this one ASAP. -Brian
Episode #42 - Information about the upcoming #FindYourFightJam and a brief history of the past 5 years and the jams and event that have been put on to benefit some of the best in BMX.
Episode #41 - Chris Hallman; These days he is rooted in midstate NY as a carpenter and caring for the most important priority of his life, his daughter Sylvia. Chris still actively rides and at 46 is riding at a level to be proud of...in running shoes. You will hear that story in this episode. So unconventional sometimes fits as a description of Chris but so does cancer survivor, depression survivor, great father and good friend to many. Enjoy the episode and give him a shout on IG at @hallperson to let him know how much you appreciate him - Joe
Episode #40 - Joe talks to BMX industry mainstay Matt Coplon, of Profile racing among many other things.
Episode #39.2 -Part 2 of the Steve Crandall interview covers a lot of topics in-depth. As always, it's worth the time to listen. Grab a coffee and take it in!
Episode #39 - Part 1 of Joe's sitdown with FBM's Steve Crandall dives into FBM history, Steve's backgound, his announcing gig and more. Steve is about the most BMX as a person can be. Enjoy.
New Episode #38 Part 1 is up with Garrett Byrnes. This is the most impactful interview I have recorded yet. Such a great conversation that I broke the podcast into two parts. Don't miss this one. Real life, real talk.
New Episode #37 is up with Dave King of Dirt Sculpt LLC. Dave is currently rebuilding and adding tons of BMX and MTB features and courses at the Powder Ridge Bike Park in Middlefield, CT. This also happens to be the site of the Find Your Fight Jam on July 29th! Great listen about Dave's riding history and business.
New Episode #36 is up with Pauly "The Pirate" Cvikevich. We talk about where BMX has brought Pauly throughout his youth and as an adult. These life experiences have brought Pauly to a project of getting bikes to the kids of the Kenyan community that he visited earlier this year. Amazing. I have no doubt he will get it done!
New Episode #35 is up with the International Man of BMX Mystery, Mike Savage. Nearly a 40 year veteran of BMX, Mike talks about his quest to race every track in the country as well as lots of stories of international travel to race around the world.
New Episode #34 is up with the Women of BMX. So much insight from a group of determined women having the time of their lives riding trails. The bond they have formed is so great to see with BMX being the center piece.
New Episode #33 is up with the main diggers of Catty Woods in Catasauqua, PA Chris Janis and Andy Schwartz detail what it's like to run one of the most popular trails in the Country!
