For this episode of ODSY Vision, we bring to you our favorite clips from the Texas Toast Jam and a quick trip with George Boyd. He lives a few hours north of Austin so we met up with him a couple days prior and filmed a handful of clips along the drive.
Thanks to everyone who flew, drove, walked and pedaled to the Texas Toast Jam. You guys helped make it a good time with plenty of fun in the sun. Hope to see everyone again next year!

Mat Hoffman and his family took the train down from Oklahoma this past weekend to check out the Texas Toast Jam. He had his POV cam with him and he cruised around for a bit recording some clips. Watch the video he put together to see his POV of the event and even get a glimpse of Jake Seeley’s brakeless Gauntlet of Death victory!
Thanks for coming Mat!!!Read More »
Here’s a quick recap gallery of our Texas Toast Jam. Expect videos to start surfacing later this week!Read More »
This is quite possibly one of the most defining moments of the Pro Dirt Comp of our Texas Toast Jam. Mikey’s still recovering from the traumatic head injury he suffered a few years ago and had not entered any contests since. The energy and atmosphere of the event and everyone in attendance got him so psyched that he got on his bike and took one hell of a rebel run. This moment literally brought chills and tears of joys to many.
And to every one asking about video coverage of the event, sit tight. There’s plenty in the works!Read More »

Texas Toast has come and gone, and I really can’t think of a single thing that could have made the weekend better. Any expectations about the Odyssey BMX sponsored and Taj Mihelich organized event were certainly blown out of the water and there is no doubt in my mind that this was one of the best BMX events I’ve ever been to in my life.

Thanks to a lucky pair of pants (and an unbelievable amount of skill), Gary Young took home the win in Empire’s King of the Curved Wall challenge and also in the Pro Dirt Contest! Believe it or not, this is actually the first time Gary’s ever won a dirt comp so this victory’s extra sweet. Chase Hawk got a well deserved 2nd place with over-dipped 360s that were higher than most people’s regular airs and a gnarly 180 over the last jump. Ricky Moseley rounds things off in 3rd with huge variations over every jump.
Another highlight of the night was MIKE AITKEN getting so psyched on the comp that he ended up taking a Rebel Run! The whole place literally erupted in radness.
Thanks to everyone that came out tonight!Read More »
