Kevin Jones MIA
« on: June 03, 2011, 05:59:05 PM »
What has Kevin Jones been up to?  Is he still riding?  Would like to see some NEW footage.  Whats up with Kevin Jones? Could we do a Where are they now section?  Would like to see whats up with retro riders.

All things in life are temporary. If going well...enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong donít worry, they can't last long either.

Now there is an interview I would like to see.
Kevin talks donuts, black coffee and used cars.

I have always thunk it must be hard to live up to a reputation that bordered on godly for many riders many years ago. Without a doubt age takes a toll, and it must generate a sense wanting to shy away when others have such high expectations of you.
Especially when things like work, interests and age are put into the equation.

I just wonder how long it will be before Kevin opens himself up to the older generation of shall we say less intense riders which spend a greater amount of their time shall we say reminiscing about their youth and allow people like bob Haro to relive their youth and reflect on a time that had such profound times on others.

Kevin is not missing. Kevin still rides. He's a family man so his priorities have changed a bit over the years but he's the same ol' Kevin Jones. He still shows up at York and 1300 MTF jams. That's just about it.

I would like to see a documentary.   We have some on Mat Hoffman and big air, how about something on Kevin and flatland.

The last interview of him was in RideBMX UK in 2005.  I've seen footage of him riding that peddler bike, and some photos of him on a Sunday 24".  I know he still rides...but don't think he has any real desire to be "seen".  Just quietly riding, selling used cars, and smoking. 

Byke...he actually talks about NOT drinking coffee in that interview, if I remember correctly.

The last interview of him was in RideBMX UK in 2005. 


Not exactly, I interviewed him in the 22nd issue of Cream Magazine:


Kevin still rides as as much as possible.  He is married and has real cute little boy that keeps him busy.  He moved from York to Maryland and now lives in New Jersey.  I have some recent photos I still need to upload to Flickr.  Here are the ones that I took for the Cream Interview:

I've been looking for that issue of Cream for a while now.  Any chance of someone reprinting the interview or scanning it?  Would be a nice addition to this thread.
