Not much going on the first day for the ladies at the Toronto BMX Jam. I got to meet the amazing Perris Benegas and Hannah Roberts, along with seeing some old friends. Some of the ladies went to Joyride today, where Angie Marino landed a flip over resi with a mountain bike.
Trish Bromley was involved in a pretty bad crash at the race course, but should be ok to ride tomorrow. Our good friend Brad Messenger got the worst of it, so we’re sending him our thoughts. Tomorrow will be the ladies day to ride, starting with a 10am practice.
You should be able to watch the footage live, however mid feed today the IATSE union decided to shut down the operation. We’re not totally sure why this union decided to threaten the Toronto BMX Jam, but this is a volunteer operation and they nearly charged the Toronto International Bike Show $3000 if they continued to film. That said, the Toronto BMX Jam is working hard to get the feed up and running by tomorrow, if it works you can watch it here http://torontobmx.ca/live/
