Today our Facebook Page rolled over 100,000 “Likes”! I just wanted to take a second to say thank you to everyone who supports what we’re doing! We couldn’t do it without your support! We’ll be doing a GIVEAWAY shortly to celebrate so keep checking back for that!
We just wanted to let everyone know that the new Through The Lens shirts are instock and ready to ship. They are screen printed by hand in Florida by fellow BMX riders. They are printed on American Apparel combed cotton for a unique, soft feel. They are available in small, medium, large and extra large for only $17.50 and every dollar made will go towards supporting The Union and our contributors. If you are interested in grabbing one (the first run has pretty limited quantities) then hit up the WEB STORE and make it happen. Thank you as always for your support! – Jeremy Pavia
Instagram contest: We also are running a contest to give away one of the shirts. All you need to do to be entered is to take a screen-shot of a photo from your favorite column from the past 92 weeks and briefly explain why. Also make sure to follow The Union on Instagram (@BMXunion and hashtag #TTLgiveaway while you are at it. The winner will be picked at random and will be announced at the end of next week’s TTL.
One of the best parts about waking up every day is checking out all of the different submissions for the Daily Section that we get from all over the world. Because of it, I’ve ended up talking to people I’ve never met from countries I’ve never been to more than people I grew up with that I still see pretty frequently. Austin Miller might not be from another country, but there’s no denying that he’s always actively sending through new videos he put together for us to check out. We were talking a little while back and decided it would be rad to feature one of his videos, so he went out and stacked a few clips over the last few months he was stoked on. The footage might be a little rough and it’s not the craziest riding to ever grace the internet, but it’s rad because Austin went out of his way to put in work for this video for us all to check out. So hit that play button and take a peek! Shout out to Austin and everyone that chipped into film a clip or two for him.
Sunday is back at it again! They got Aaron Ross, Gary Young, Chris Childs and Alex Magallan to give their complete bikes a go to see just how well they hold up to their riding! Take a peek at what they put them through then CLICK HERE for a closer look at all of Sunday’s 2014 bikes!
“Every year, we make a video featuring our team riders on our complete bikes to show how similar these bikes are to their personal bikes. The geometry is the same between the completes and the team’s personal bikes. Our goal is to make our complete bikes as similar as possible to the team’s bikes, so you can learn as easy as possible. Aaron Ross, Gary Young, Alex Magallan and Chris Childs are featured shredding the bikes in this video. Again, these aren’t the rider’s personal bikes just the same bike you can buy at your local Sunday dealer.“

“Who’s Running This Show”
Check out this video from the trip some of the FIT crew took to Orcas Island recently. Crazy cement park with some damn good riding! Enjoy!
“Tom Dugan, Justin Spriet, Jordan Hango and Cristian Porras took a small detour from their trip to Seattle to session the Orcas Island Skatepark. This unique skatepark allowed the guys to ride something a little different and get some damn good clips.
