We made it to 1,250,000 subscribers on our youtube channel! In honor of the accomplishment, we are going to bring back the Subscriber Challenges every 50,000 Subscribers that the channel gains! But this time I decided that I am going to be the one that steps up and challenges myself to attempt my first trick back on my BMX bike since my accident 19 months ago! Today I grinded a rail with my BMX bike for the first time since the accident and I am so proud of myself and I want to thank my family, my friends, and all the youtube subscribers for all the support!
We had a High Jump Challenge behind my bike shop where three BMX riders competed against each other to see which rider could jump their bicycle the highest off of the ramp! The riders designed a very sketchy ramp by using only pieces of junk! Surprisingly, the ramp worked really good and the riders were able to set a record for the highest jump!
We went to ride a famous New Jersey hand built concrete ramp in a drainage ditch! It is awesome and so unique and all the riders were so excited to ride it for the first time! The guys started to land some tricks and we were all having such a great time as well! Dom did an amazing jump off the wall and landed into the ramp and immediately jumped over a huge mud puddle! We are having so much fun riding outside again and we are excited to enjoy riding together!
The Vans BMX Pro Cup is a competition series that travels around the world to amazing skateparks to have the best BMX skatepark riders a chance to compete against each other to see who the best rider really is! This event is the first of four events and it was at a skatepark in Sydney Australia! The best BMX riders competed both girls and the men and they did some of the greatest bowl riding we have ever seen and the accomplished some of the highest airs and most amazing tricks as well! My little brother competed as a wildcard competitor and he made the finals and qualified to earn his spot on the tour! This was the best BMX bowl contest ever and I was so glad to be a part of it!
We started the day off by taking a trip to the famous Sydney Opera house at Sydney Harbour after that we met up with our new friend Cameron picked us up and brought us over to the indoor skatepark called Warehouse 11! Everyone was excited to ride their BMX bikes on these awesome ramps and we met up with Australian BMX pro and also an Australian Silver medalist Snowboarder!

We just got a brand new skatepark built in New Jersey. We have filmed a video here before but it was at the old version of this park, they recently tore it down and put this park up instead! This skatepark is brand new and right down the road from Big Boys house so he has a crazy new local park to come shred on the daily! Dom, Baconator, BIG BOY, and myself met up there for a quick session before the rain decided to come in a ruin our fun.
