Kenny Horton pedals fast and jumps shit, sometimes it works out, sometimes his hair is a flailing mess of tumbling hesh. He doesn’t give a shit.
One of the gnarliest moments in BMX history, in my opinion, is the infamous Robbie Morales River Gap. Pull it or eat shit trying, the cojones it took to attempt that stunt is something lost on many a young rider in 2013.
I heard rumors of people prank calling Robbie on the old days, saying it was the river gap, and then just hanging up, genius. Unfortunately the jokes come with the territory, but that Gap has only been kept company by a few since, namely the Austin Church Gap, by Jimmy Levan, and maybe the Hollywood cemetery gap Sean Burns did in Anthem 2.
The fearless, the disturbed, the artists who can pedal with out chopping wood, they have written some of the best pages in this weird bicycle book we are reading, here’s to them.
