Where were you on Saturday March 30th? If the answer isn't Astatula FL, then you missed out on one of the biggest BMX events of the year called Swampfest! If you're passionate about BMX, this is the place to be!
Swampfest has gotten bigger and better each year and this year the event drew over 3,000 riders, fans, and spectators from all over the world. BMX legends, industry icons, big name pros, and Joe Schmoes, from dirt to park, from flatland to street, old school, mid school, and new school. BMX came together for an unforgettable weekend of fun, excitement, partying, and most importantly brotherhood!
While it took a massive crew of friends, family, and sponsors to build all of the obstacles, jumps, and ramps... the man with the vision behind Swampfest is none other than Trey Jones.
Trey stopped by the Master Blaster Planet studios to talk about everything that went down before, during, and after the mayhem, including when he started designing and building the obstacles for the event, securing an area big enough to handle a large amount of people, building the jumps as well as the idea behind the Chasm jump, the design of the park course, the massive 80 ft rail across the swamp, the double loop, the sideways loop called the Vortex, the limited edition Vans shoes, the wrap party, the fires that raged, the day after carnage, and finally, will there be another Swampfest next year?
So get comfortable, crank up your speakers, and check out this special edition of Space Brothers. It's the Swampfest Recap with Trey Jones!
