History repeats itself as me and my childhood friend Romel De Vera was at the same place 30 years ago, sitting on a BMX (this time its original and sad to say it’s not ours haha, thanks Kuya Alvin!) as we spend an afternoon at the back of Folk Arts Theater together with the 80’s BMXers FB group in celebration of World BMX Day 2017.
It was an awesome afternoon as guys whose ages were more or less the same like us were all over the place, biking, freestylin, hitting the ramp, making selfies and groupies, or simply chit-chatting with one another while reminiscing the past. Nakita ko din dun mga idol ko sa ramp at mga nakakarera namin sa Jammin Jay at sa Philcite nung araw haha!
Good thing our client/ride buddy Kuya Alvin invited us to attend the event, ok lang daw kahit wala kaming BMX, at least daw eh magkitakita at magka bonding ulit kami.
I was surprise that I could still able to do the Infinity Roll, yun nga lang nung pinaulit sa akin para ma videohan eh wala na sablay na kase hilo na ako haha! Unlike the two young flatlanders from Mariveles, Bataan na nandun din sa place exhibiting their amazing spinning talent on BMX, wala silang mga hilo hehe!
Can’t wait for the 2018 celebration haha!
Watch my video and see the radness and awesomeness that day!
