I grew up riding dirtjumps. before i knew what bmx was, we were riding dirtjumps we built somewhere. My favorite thing about riding jumps, is that it hasnt changed since i started riding.
   The last thing i want to do is watch "Lil Stevie" muscle his way through a 1080 bunny hop or do a bunny hop truck driver with a paper bag on his head. Or watch Someone do a tailwhip barspin flair to caserole over a box jump. Dirt jumping has remained untouched by the bull shit, come up, internet influenced bmx. You see the same tricks from 20 years ago. The simplicity of someone doing a toboggan or a tire grab over a double, is still in tact. Or doing nothing but jumping a jump. In the woods no one cares what you can do. no one is impressed with the circus act. I cant tell you how many times i have seen someone do some crazy trick over a dirtjump and nobody acknowledges it, and then 10 seconds later someone hits the same jump and kicks out the back end with style and everyone gives him a yell. Trail riders are a different breed. They work hard for a place to ride. and that appreciation comes out in their riding.

i was able to snap this pic of steve riding on January 20th at the spot he digs with some friends. Thanks for the good times guys. the place is awesome
