Press Rewind: Banned Drought Mixtape

Its been nine months, one week and three days since Banned creator Rickey Bates and teammate Gary Dimartine were tragically killed in an auto accident after Interbike last year. Just yesterday I saw a Facebook update from Rickey’s dad saying that he had just finalized the paperwork to make Banned Together BMX a 501c3 public charity, so I’m excited to see what will come of that. This video is everything Banned is about…grungy metal riffs, pedaling full speed, rap music and straight drops. I still miss my homie all the time, especially on Shadow trips. #banned4life
