Epic riding going down, car parts everywhere, and a piano sub-box out of a satellite dish! Aside from all of the crazy obstacles that Derek Nelson dreams in his pursuit of awesomeness, there were SUVs getting smashed up and drift cars getting jumped. A true upstate NY style jam and we wouldn't have it any other way!

Whoa! This years Grindworks jam at HCS skatepark was a wild one. It typically goes off, but this year was particularly intense. Epic riding going down, car parts everywhere, and a piano sub-box out of a satellite dish! Aside from all of the crazy obstacles that Derek Nelson dreams in his pursuit of awesomeness, there were SUVs getting smashed up and drift cars getting jumped. A true upstate NY style jam and we wouldn’t have it any other way!

The BMX community in and around central New York has been really strengthened in recent years. I think this can definitely be credited to Grindworks along with some crews and other more major companies. I’ve seen a rise in passion and drive to get out on a bike and have a great time. It really feels like everyone makes the effort to make it to the jams and just have a good time and the people putting on the jams are giving it their all to make it happen. It’s just a really great thing to see. Thanks to everyone at Grindworks and Derek Nelson for making it a great day! I hope you can see just how wild the day really was. Hope to see you next year! —Tom Beckman

Along with a gallery of photos from myself and Matthew Vargason, we have an awesome video put together by Kyle Dolan. He was putting in work all day filming on his VX.

Photos were shot with 35mm, 120mm, and a little bit of digital in there.
