Happy New Year everyone! I know it’s the second, but whatever…
We’re happy to bring you our first interview of 2011, with our first victim being Brian Tunney. As you may or may not know, Tunney has been involved in many aspects of the BMX industry. From rider to blogger, Tunney’s been there. So to kick off the year, I asked Brian a little about all these things. Tunney’s awesome.

Besides getting to see and chill with everyone (which is the best part of Interbike), the overall most memorable moment for me/everyone was Chris Doyle winning Dirt Rider of the Year. That dude rules. Seeing Hoder go crazy with Doyle’s Nora Cup was equally as classic, haha…

Shout out to Corey Martinez and United too.
I’m a Tunney fan. Always well thought out and well spoken.
With that said, check out a interview with him on the Fuel TV website.
I had a great talk with my buddy Mike Vincent yesterday and he reminded me of this interview that Brian Tunney conducted with him for the ESPN website. It’s a good short read with a lot of information on his accident, his life now, and how we all can help.
Jared Souney just posted a PDF of a one-off magazine that he put together with Brian Tunney sometime around 1998 titled Nine-Ninety. It’s pretty crazy to check out all the photos and see how many dudes are not riding any more or they are just people I’ve never heard of. I wonder if one day, we are going to be re-publishing our blogs and reminiscing about how rad websites were like how people talk about zines today… hmmm…..
