Evolution Revelation Segment 1: '87, '89

In the fad-filled years of Cold War, Reganomics, Exxon Valdez, and the fall of the Berlin Wall: riders around the world began to trash their neon factory uniforms and take back the sport, one rider-owned-company at a time.

In the latest segment of Evolution Revelation, we flash back to 1987 and the Velodrome world-record shoot. Most notable this day was maximum TV cheese in which producers insisted that Josh White got the highest air. Brian Blyther clearly went higher. Very high-tech method of measurement I must say.

Blyther finally did get the official record and held it..until Hoffman came along. This event is a great snapshot of uniforms and big dollars. The drastic change in the industry from 87 to 89 is so obvious in this old footage.

Next, witness 1989: AFA Masters in Austin, Texas. This ancient arena in Austin has been the venue for some serious BMX history over the years. Pretty intense competition for a 'dead' sport.
In the year of bashguards and the street-riding-craze, flatlanders were still busting out and taking tricks well beyond Cherrypickers and Miami-Hoppers.
