ESPN edit I made titled "Underage and Underrated"
I believe I made this video in the winter of 2009
Featured Skateparks: Haven Skatepark (R.I.P.), Skaters Edge (Taunton, MA), and Rye Airfield (Rye, NH)
Featured Riders: "Lil Stevie" Churchill, Ian Bresnahan, Dylan Bresnahan, Brett Silva
The inspiration for the video was the progression rate of riders now a days, and the concept was to show 4 of New England's best riders, who all happen to legally be considered minors. Despite their age, They had skills some adults would kill for. Bike riding has always been very juvenile to me, because its a child like joy we get from riding, and its one of my favorite parts. Riding with kids who's motivation is fun is really refreshing in todays rider's mindset. The idea of riding purely for fun is a much more mature mentality, due to the way we were brought up in riding. So these "kids" really represented what I thought riding should be, and at the time, no one was sponsored.
On a personal note, this was the first edit I ever was paid to do, and I was very proud of it. I got to travel and Made really good friendships with all the riders. I got to take Stevie on his first trip out of state for riding. And hopefully helped get them some attention they much deserved.
I saw the edit was no longer on ESPN, so I decided to upload it to my own personal account.
