No-Handed Flair in the Sugarhouse Bowl
Utah is home to some famous skateparks as well as some of the best dirt jumps in the world! the 39th street crew from Salt Lake were the ones to build all the dirt jumps for the X-Games through the late 90s and the first decade of the century. This is not surprising since Tim "Fuzzy" Hall is from Roy, just a short drive north and most of the SLC riders grew up in his back yard. Sean "Elf" Walters moved here from back East a while ago. Mike Aitkin and Matt Barringer also grew up here and for a while were ranked in the top 10 BMX riders in the world. Troy Steinekert and John Bethers of "The Lumberyard" fame from the early 90s live in the next county south. For a while Utah became the place to live, even Ryan Nyquist spent a few years here. As a result, there is a large underground dirt jumpers culture here. Around the turn of the century, local skateparks started to appear. It was no longer required to dig dirt if you wanted to ride, and with parks like Layton, Sugarhouse, and Park City, few riders went back to dirt. But, there is something to be said about making your own trails, and so there are still quite a number of jumps to be found, and usually built by riders who have built jumps for the X-Games. Whether you prefer dirt, street, or park, Utah has what you want to ride!
The bright red lizard was half way across the pool of blood before he was told that it was in fact foam that had rushed down from the top of the mountain less than 5 miles away. He perked up his head and looked around and saw that he was really in the part of the world that he was not expecting. How did he get here? it was not the lake of fire that drove him her, he was much to clever for that. He knew it had to have been something magical, something that no one had ever cast before. It must have been that old wizard that had been hanging out side of the grocery store asking for spare change. He must have gotten to him before the alarm had woken him to go to church that day. If it wasn't for the yellow paper floating beside him, he might never have gotten out. He knew that this was not the way he would have wanted it, but now that it had started, he knew he had to be the one to finish it! He decided that this had gone on long enough and the only way to fix it was to grab the electric blue skeleton key from the driveway and head up to the haunted house in the forest. He didn't know exactly how he was going to get there, but he needed to start right now. He jumped on his motor scooter and drove over to where he kept his jump pack, checked the fuel and took off. He was nearly there when a bald eagle came and snatched him out of the air. He knew that this bread of bird was protected by the government, but he didn't want to be eaten so he struggled with the red blog that he had written a year before and came up with a solution. This solution was good for cleaning floors but not so good for getting out of the clutches of a bird of prey. After they finished their short flight back to the perch, the lizard knew it was the end and sang a song.
