etnies BMX Tour: Day 6, Journeys Cleveland

May 24 2010 / Monday

This stop on the tour was something a little special compared to the others. This is the only stop that we also had some “additional” help getting the crowds riled up... & much to Aaron Ross’s dismay, the crowds weren’t there necessarily to see only him.

Journeys is one of etnies' largest retail accounts & once a year they go all out bringing in the etnies “all star” team of etnies moto guys, BMX team & the skate team, including the one & only Ryan Sheckler (now you know why the crowds turned out). Basically the team would get trampled by teenage girls so they could get to Sheckler… It’s a crazy scene & not something easily explained; you have to experience it to understand. Besides the attraction/distraction of Sheckler, the event had tons of fun things to do. Good food, drinks, Booths to visit & win shit, bands playing (some good, some not so good) & the center piece being an awesome & multifaceted mini ramp for the etnies skaters & BMX team to shred. And with fear of a downpour, the guys made the most of what the ramp had to offer & got to work quickly, laying down some hefty moves. Sergio flowed & aired the ramp like no other. Jamie had more lip tricks than a rapper drinking “Monster”. Tony Hamlin flairing both ways was a sight to see & Morgan's doubles routines with Sheckler were pretty awesome. Although, Morgan decided it would be a great idea to throw his back out on a flair which laid him flat out on the deck for a good period of time. A quick trip to the hospital determined it nothing serious - just rest & pain killers to repair things. All in all, the demos were amazing, but experiencing crowds of that size & the fever pitch they reach every time Sheckler mopped his brow with his shirt or pulled his pants up was all the entertainment anyone could handle.

  1. This was an amazing event! I wish there was a way to upload pictures on here because I got some great shots of sheckler and others and another view of Sheckler and Wade's doubles routine.
    Thank you Ethnies team for coming to Cleveland! It was great seeing action sports again, I have missed them so much since the dew tour stopped doing a tour stop in Cleveland.
