This past Saturday (6/20) was the 2009 York Jam--an annual event held in York, PA. Since 1990, Flatland BMX riders from all over have converged upon York every summer for a massive jam session. Attending the York Jam is akin to making the hajj to Mecca...but for flatland riders. York is the birthplace of modern flatland and the jam is held there for both historical and posterity reasons. Having not made a BMX video in well over a year, I decided to make the trip up to York for the first time since 2005. I got plenty of riding in myself, but I was eager to film as well. The intermittent monsoon-like rains did not detract from the level of riding that day. In fact, Isaiah Jordan managed to continue riding even as the rain was starting to flood the
lot. It was pretty fucking insane seeing him pull a bunch of shit during all of that. I regret not investing in a waterproof cover for my camera because I would have loved to have filmed it. Pictures of it can be found here:
