For this years Texas Toast Jam, my boy Francis Delapena ran around like a stealth ninja and filmed as much of the event as he could from beginning to end. Meanwhile, I ran around and gathered various BMX personalities who were on hand to throw some questions at. Through various answers and commentary, this video took on a life of its own.
This video covers more than just this years jam, so sit back and enjoy this Texas Toast Jam documentary.
Another Texas Toast Jam has come and gone, and what a sweet time it was. Considering the amount of rain we received the week prior (the dirt jumps were literally flooded), I’d say the whole thing ended marvelously. It was great seeing people from around the world descend upon Austin for the jam once again.
Brandon Means was in town for Toast (ice to finally meet you bud) , and he graciously contributed a bunch of pics from the weekend. Click below to check them out.
Coming to Texas Toast Jam. Here’s an after party for ya.
This years Texas Toast Jam is a wrap. As someone who was involved on the back end of this thing, I can safely claim that it went really well. BMX Heavy hitters came out to our BMX festival and it was truly a good time. Thanks to all that came through and/or supported Toast!
I was running around throughout the jam and couldn’t really shoot photos like last year, but I did manage to pull a few. I did take mental notes about random interesting facts/tidbits regarding Toast as well.
A special special very important shout out to Taj Mihelich, Ryan Corrigan, Burly Matt, Clint Reynolds, Nutter, Will Blount and other volunteers for all their hard work and making the jam a success. Nobody can thank you guys and gals enough.

John Prolly posted a great photo gallery from Texas Toast Jam, which went down this past weekend.
If I was able to shoot photos and pull off a full gallery this year, I’d like to think that it would look a lot like John’s. Good job dude.

Texas Toast Vans??? YUP! Check out all the info on the Odyssey site.
I can best describe Odyssey’s Texas Toast Jam as some sort of large scale local jam/BMX festival. I think the combination of those two sums it up pretty well. There was a pretty standard dirt comp going on, but every thing else was pretty non-standard (but that was the best part). Once people got on site, they knew they were in for an interesting time.
Despite the heat (did you know it was hot in texas?) and windy conditions, I can’t help but feel that this jam was refreshing and just plain fun. I’m pretty sure everyone left with a smile, especially after Mike Aitken’s run. Click through the photogallery to see what I mean.

The Texas Toast jam will be going down this weekend in Austin, along with a party put on by Darryl Nau (click below for the party flyer). The video above gives you some good insight into this event and all it’s insanity. Should be an interesting time for everyone that’s heading out, haha…
I’ll be on the premises snapping pics, so check back for a gallery next week.
The Sparky’s crew took a disposable camera on their recent trip in Austin. I started sweating just putting this together.
From Ryan Chadwick:
To coincide with the Texas Toast Jam, Sparky’s Distribution decided to do a road trip that included riders from The Shadow Conspiracy, Subrosa Brand, and Sputnic BMX coming to Texas to ride, film, and have a good time. Seth Kimbrough, Rickey Bates, Ben Hucke, Kyle Hart, Hoang Tran, Greg Smee, and Ryan Sher covered the riding side while Tristan Afre shot the photos and I filmed the clips. These disposables highlight the many sides of traveling Texas in 100 degree weather. Sunscreen, sweat, and Sassy Grace. Enjoy!
