28 Feb Metro Jam 2005
It seemed fitting that this link would pop up on FB this morning (thanks Kean!). With the Toronto BMX Jam officially underway today, this is a reminder of how amazing the venue once was. From the worlds top pros to some of the best courses ever made, I think it’s fair to say that Metro Jam was once even bigger than what Simple Session is to BMX today.
Although this vid might seem long compared to most of today’s web edits, take 20 minutes out of your social media time and have a watch. You’ll notice a ton of different riders being creative in every aspect of the course, riding whatever and however they prefer to ride. You won’t see any circus monkeys, you’ll see a 14 year old Garrett Reynolds already killing it, you’ll see street guys, park guys, trail guys and most importantly you’ll see everyone having a damn good time. The amount of Canadian BMXers who made it out to this event from across the country amazed me every year, and it the event never disappointed. Canada’s BMX community needs a Canadian Simple Session, Texas Toast or old style Metro Jam!
