Small | Large


Ivan has a few clips in this jam video (:50, 2:07 ish). I recall one Chase interview from years back where he mentioned riding with Ivan. Ivan was casually doing cross footed hitchhiker jugglers where you skip touching the seat, just going between the bars and the tire, but he didn't have any air in his tires. Chase mentioned that to Ivan, but Ivan didn't seem to care and Chase found that pretty intimidating since it was such a tough trick for the mid 90s. I remember reading that and always wanting to see footage of the guy who made Chase scared.

I rode with Ivan yesterday. If anybody is friends with Jason Kale on FB go look on his profile, he posted a video of Ivan from today.


EDIT: And he told me to tell you guys he's a fat hog now but he's losing weight.

Don't know if anyone remembers the Electric Ballroom contest back in the day in Knoxville Tennessee?

Must been around 94?

Ivan was killin it! Just amazing at the time and riding a hoffman condor with a 72 degree headtube :D

He also apparently lived in a VW rabbit for a couple years to save money to buy a house with pizza delivery money! LOL

Definitely a great rider and still shredding with the york crew! A real nice guy to boot.

Ivan was at the Indy and Buffalo comps last year.  A bunch of us hit up a Mexican place after the Buffalo comp and he was super fun to hang out with.  Seemed to be rededicated to riding tons,  awesome!
