The month of August was a rough one for the BMX community in the Philadelphia area. Although we finally got to see the release of Justin Care’s latest video for Fade Footwear & Merritt, it came on the heels of Justin breaking his wrist. Dan Conway also broke his ankle requiring surgery just days after the release of Justin’s video which he filmed and edited. August also marked the two year anniversary of the passing of “Slow” Joe McIntire and brought us another tragedy. On Thursday, August 31st, 19 year old Lorenzo Velazquez was struck and killed while riding his bike home by a hit and run driver. We would like to offer our condolences to the Velazquez family, friends and his crew @evolbmx. Donations to assist with funeral costs can be made by clicking here.
