Okay, it’s one of those blink-and-you’ll-miss-me deals, but I’m still in there.

I musta blinked, cause I missed it.

But, that's OK because that whole video made me happy to watch.

I was looking for your chops but kept getting distracted by really good riding. 
 

Its nice to see younger kids still doing it. I was thinking to myself how good these young boys are, then realized its all girls which is awesome.

That video is rad. Makes me wish I'd have stuck with the sport.

It is rad. It’s fun.

Lots of super-technical BMX stuff online these days. It’s refreshing to see emphasis on just enjoying the sport with friends.

The simplicity and joy in the riders just having fun is probably why I enjoyed it so much.  Not to take away from the video's with ridiculous tricks, because those are cool too.  And, while those tricks may seem simple compared to those more extreme tricks, they're not.  And I remember when I was younger pulling a trick like that for the first time and the elation and joy I felt, I could see that in their faces.

Thank you for sharing.

Yup, the video scores high for joy.

I was there for two of the sessions, and lots of smiles all around.

Good video! I'm in an old Standard video as an "extra rider" haha. To bad they haven't been digitized yet.

Glad to see Standard Byke Company offering a 22.
