I recently traveled from Texas to Colorado
, where I met up with James McGraw
and had the time of my life! I don't think I have ever been to as many events in such a small time period as I did in my 5 days there.
Everywhere we went, I felt like a rock star being with him. We did a Keith King
show on a closed street in downtown Denver during the USA Pro Challenge
cycling race, rode at a private ramp park, did all day shows at the huge Colorado Springs Flea Market
, sessioned a local park- including James
riding on a dirt baseball diamond!
We visited his practice spot, rode a couple random places, spent an evening at the absolutely breathtaking Memorial Skatepark
, filmed a solo-wheel part on a mountain road
, sessioned with Yella
and the Yellow Designs Stunt Team
(awesome!), went to a Jane's Addiction
/ Big Black Delta
concert, and if that wasn't enough, spent an entire day riding, filming, and having a blast at the Prequel Contest
(at which he got first place
)! In fact I had so much fun I'm sure I'm forgetting some things!
The general vibe
of the Colorado riders
. I felt at home right away, and it really felt like I was among friends. Everyone was having a blast. I was very impressed with the riding scene there! It was a memorable trip for sure, and I'm really stoked to show you this new video of James at Home. He pulled some bangers, and seems to always be having a great time. It's inspiring. I hope to go back there one day!
Stay tuned for an upcoming Colorado Scene edit
that shows a bit more from this amazing place.
