The Battle for Midwest BMX and The 4th Annual Kitchen Pro/Am+Girls Classes are in one weeks time!  The 1st two stops have been amazing thus far in the battle for amateur supremacy.  The Kitchen BMX & Skatepark in South Bend is a very special to me personally as it is my favorite BMX Riders very own park.  I am talking about Brett Banasiewicz, the man, the myth the kid who killed contests all over this fine planet of ours year after year.

The Kitchen BMX & Skatepark’s 3rd annual Pro/Am competition started in typical Maddog fashion with Brett in a car chase with the South Bend Police Dept.  Fifteen minutes into our live feed Brett called to warn me he was coming in hot with the cops on his tail!  Once he shook the coppers, Brett grabbed his BMX and took a few hot laps around his park before stopping atop Mt. Banasiewicz (the newly built huge step up). The entire building erupted with applause as we kicked off an amazing weekend in South Bend, IN.
