Video Interview with Pistol Pete.

March 11th, 2011

i caught up with Pete at the race in Reno and managed to narrow down 20 minutes of him talking into this four and a half minute segment. Most of what is cut out is talking about how much clips are whack.

Update with Donny Robinson.

March 7th, 2011


After dR took a hit at the OTC last Thursday sending him to the hospital, I figured it would be good to get in touch with him to see when he would be back on his bike, along with a quick recap of his last year of bad luck. Check out the writeup on espn.com/action here.

Does Twitter Matter Just as Much as Sticker Placement?

March 3rd, 2011

dR is one of the few BMX racers who rely more on outside sponsors than one particular brand.

“You’ve got to figure,” Mesenbrink said, “if that brand can get its message across to 15,000 fans, they could easily sell 20 times in product what they’re paying in incentives. It makes sense for these companies to do that — there’s not much risk when you’re only talking a couple thousand dollars.”

There is an interesting article over on espn.com/action talking about social media, and how a lot of athletes are getting deals and bonus’ based on how many followers they have on twitter and fans they have on facebook. It’s kind of crazy to think that this is what brands are looking for, but it’s 2011 and ‘web 2.0’ has taken over.
