Fifteen years is a long time in the action sports world, especially when it comes to BMX. Enduring the test of time along with numerous trials and tribulations, the one and only King of New York® will be celebrating its 15th year in 2009, going down on Saturday August 8th and Sunday August 9th, this time in Manhattan and the Bronx. Check the attached flyer and spread the word.
The economy didn´t spare the King of New York either, leaving it with no sponsorship money, and so the main comp this year has turned into a jam instead. No sponsors. No money. So what? Jeremiah Smith, the reigning King of New York says, "It´s all good. I´m still coming out to ride with Jorge and everyone." Daniel Dhers says, "I absolutely hated driving in NYC but I had a blast riding at the King of New York."
The King of New York website (www.kingofnewyorkbmx.com) is almost completely updated so check it out. August 8 will be flatland and street jams at Tompkins Square Park. Tompkins is on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, at Avenue A and 10th Street. Then the fun moves up to the Bronx on Sunday August 9, with a ramp jam at the NYC´s oldest ramp park, Mullaly Park. Mullaly is at 164th Street and River Avenue, a brick´s throw from the new Yankee Stadium.
