Will Jackson one of our BMX team riders dropped into the office. He is camping with his wife and child (and one baby yet to be delivered) for the week. He left the bike at home cause the car was brim full.
We sponsor Will not just because he is a great rider but because he fits our brand ethics and catching up with him for an hour yesterday we had a great chat about the soul of biking. I was chatting as a mountain/road biker and will BMX, but the bit in the middle was still shared experience
His love is to explore places and people by riding his BMX on the streets of places he doesn't know.
We will be doing some stuff with Will next year.
Our good friend and howies team rider Will Jackson sent me a great email last week. Here's the meat of it.
"As an aside, Northern John and i are organizing a jam next month at Blackpool skatepark. its is being dubbed a 'War of the Roses' with 'teams' being rallied from Lancs and Yorks. the jam will be pretty informal but were going to be hosting a number of 'comps' and giving out prizes to those people deemed to be having fun, thinkin outside of the box or pushing themselves and not their profile. All prizes will be going to people without sponsors and were trying to both plug the hole in the number of BMX events in the north and do our bit to reaffim a vision of BMX that is rider run and aimed at having fun."
It got me thinking about war and an old favorite quote i stole came to mind. "It was regarded as evidence of bravery for a person to into battle carrying no weapon that would do any harm at a distance."
Seems to me there are some corporations, companies and individuals out there who are lacking on the bravery front then but dont get me started on that.
