One of the highlights of the weekend was meeting Matt Jamieson who came here from Sheffield, England as the newest blkmrkt rider and kind of an unknown in my eyes. Matt proved himself to be a solid, talented, ballsy as fuck chap who dresses like a pirate (sort of). Welcome to the Team Matt!


The Thrash Bike Street Coast Jam is done and over and was a blast... except for the massive dehydration headache from not being used to the humidity causing you to sweat every drop of moisture out of your body before you know it.

Here are the results from this weekend's contest at the Brooklyn Banks in Manhattan.

Pro

1st Adam Hauck, New Jersey
2nd Cape Cod's own Rocco Quintiliani, Cape Cod
3rd Matt White, UK

Am
1st Martin Knorr, the Netherlands
2nd Nicco Bucci, Irvington, NY
3rd Chadwick Gibbons, Dobbs Ferry, NY

And here's the rundown... I'm sorry but due to a ridiculous headache I missed the amateur jam but I'm sure Nick over at ThrashBike.com will have that covered.

Pro's rode in 2 15 minute jam sessions with 6 riders in each and some crazy shit went down... the craziest coming from Cape Cod's Rocco Quintiliani who tail whipped from the sub box on top of the banks to flat... I'm only guessing but at least 10' down and 15' out because he was hitting it on an angle. Rocco had lots of big moves and actually tied with Adam for first... more on that in a minute.

Adam's run was action packed with both tech a burliness like a wall slap about 10' out of a 6' home made ramp and a wall to 360 & wall to whip... Tying with Rocco for first.

Matt White from the UK rode well... barspinning both ways, tailwhip airs, Vaders and even a flair tying Matt McDuff for 3rd. Matt McDuff was killing it too with moves like manual to bar down the 11 stair not to mention being a Jeff Spicoli look-a-like and a really nice kid.

With ties for all the podium spots and the sudden dumping of rain it was decided there would... skid off...

The riders sprinted for all they were worth to a given point and the grabbed a handful of brake or in McDuff's case a shoe full of tire and whoever went the furthest on the slick wet brick downhill would be the victor.

Adam and Rocco both skidded at least 200' but Adam pull thru and Matt White easily out skidded the brakeless McDuff.

After the Banks Jam we all headed to Brooklyn for the Post Jam Jam at the POST bike shop. Thanks to Troy & Phillip for letting us party. Check out the POST bike shop if you're looking for a BlkMrkt in the Williamsburg area.

Thanks to Nick Brandreth and Rick Nolte for pulling all this together and Rick you were missed!!! Rick is recovering from shoulder surgery he had last week. Wish Rick a speedy recovery if you see him.
