Good news and bad news: Good news is that we have a few more sick prizes to add to the Sean Burns benefit raffle. Bad news is that we are going to postpone the drawing for another couple of weeks. This whole COVID-19 mess has international shipping all over the place and a lot of people who ordered shirts or stickers, still haven’t received them yet. Check back here on May 8th for an update. Maybe we’ll even get a few more prizes added to the pot before then.
HOLD ON TO THOSE RAFFLE TICKETS! Also, wanna take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for contributing to the recovery fund. The response has been amazing and it’s incredible to see the BMX community coming together to help one of their own. Much love.
We have decided to postpone the Sean Burns benefit raffle ticket drawing until Friday, April 24th.
The reason being is that we’re getting complaints from people who haven’t gotten their tickets yet. Although, that doesn’t matter – there is no time limit on the raffle. When the winning tickets numbers are posted just compare your ticket numbers when you get them. No one else can claim a winning ticket except the ticket holder and the prizes will be held until someone claims them.
Plus, we will be posting a few more prizes before the drawing happens.

We originally produced this as a 4 part series for the ESPN website in the summer of 2015 but we’re re-up’ing here with all parts together in case anyone missed it. Happy 51st birthday Rick!
Last year we visited Davenport, IA and shot an extensive interview with BMX legend and Standard co-founder Rick Moliterno. This 4 part mini-documentary series tells the story of Rick’s early beginnings, the founding of Standard Byke Company, a subsequent move to an in-house machine shop, a look at Rick’s current riding, thoughts on past and current team riders, what the future holds for Standard and much more.
Part 1: Moliterno discusses his rise through the pro ranks and the decision to start Standard Byke Co.
Part 2: Moliterno discusses the early innovations in BMX technology made through Standard Byke Co.
Part 3: Moliterno discusses his current relationship with riding, and enjoys a mini ramp session on his indoor ramp setup.
Part 4: Moliterno discusses what it takes to keep the Standard team going, and plans for the future with SBC.
In the summer of 2015 we had planned to shoot a video with Glenn Salyers and his girlfriend and fellow BMX’er Brooke Betancourt. Unfortunately Glenn died in a tragic motorcycle accident (it wasn’t his fault) before we could start shooting. About 2 months after the accident, Brooke mentioned she wanted to put together a mini-documentary about the whole ordeal, their relationship, her feelings and where she might go from here. Needless to say, we offered to help. The resulting documentary is called “Brooke’s Farewell”. RIP Glenn, only the good die young brother.
