AWESOME 5 MILE BMX RIDE!
We drove over to the Manasquan Reservoir in Howell, NJ and took our BMX Bikes for a ride around the awesome 5 mile fitness trail! Growing up in the same town, I spent countless days riding my bike around it and it's truly one of my favorite places to ride in the world! Matty Cranmer and Big Boy came for the ride and this was actually the first time I touched my BMX bike since I broke my back at the Xgames and I was so happy to pedal around again! Just as we always do we found some fun things to ride and to have a few laughs about! My favorite part was when Big Boy decided to ride his bike into the reservoir! He made it like 25 feet into the water before he officially sank! It was amazing! We are definitely going to head back this summer and see just how fast we can make it around it!

I DON'T WANT ZIKA DUDE!
My back is still broken and it is getting better everyday but for the time being I am trying to do some non BMX related type videos while I can. And to be honest I am actually having a really good time! On a beautiful Sunday in June my whole family met at my Parent's house for a small get together and the Big Boy stopped by also so we decided to see how far we could take the canoe down the lake! Neither of us have any boating skills but still we went for it! Big Boy nearly flipped us couple times and got us stuck in a lilly pad forrest! We made it to the end of the lake and we got stuck in a mosquito infested sanctuary where Bi g Boy started freaking out and now I think we may have contracted the Zika Virus.. We made our way back to the house where my older brother decided to take Big Boy's WRX out for a spin and when he came back he had such a big smile on his face that he didn't notice my Mom had a planter with a tomato plant in the grass and my brother crashed into it with Big Boy's WRX! It was an awesome day and we all had so much fun and I am so excited to be able to get back on my BMX with in the next week or so! Follow me @SCOTTYCRANMER and remember to SUBSCRIBE!

BIKES TO THE BEACH!
It's beautiful here in NJ in early June so we decided to get the road bikes out and tuned up and take a ride down the Manasquan Bike path to the beach! Me, Big Boy, and Matty headed east and I brought my camera along for the ride! Anything that we do involves countless laughs and good times and this trip was no different! Big Boy was trying bunny hops on his road bike and he dropped his Iphone on the road twice! Matty Cranmer was trying to take his BMX skills to the road bike and tried doing a 180 nosepiece fake down a hill! Remade it to the beach and Big Boy and Matty both decided to take a dip and Big Boy gave the whole Beach a show when his shorts were taken off by a wave! It was an awesome ride and I can't wait to do it again! Follow me @SCOTTYCRANMER and remember to SUBSCRIBE!

BMX LONG JUMP COMPETITION!
WE had a long jump competition at the skatepark and things got crazy! The riders were Big Boy, Ricky, Brooklyn, Matty, and Vinny and this is not on the best launch jump made by BMX engineers this is a kicker that Cory Berglar made out of some scrap wood! So we set the ramp up in front of the spine ramp and decided to use a starting line so everyone has the same amount of space to get speed. Matty Cranmer had the craziest jump that nearly knocked him out along with his front teeth! But somehow Matty did the impossible and held on! The competition came down to the wire but only one person can be the long jump champion! Follow me @SCOTTYCRANMER and remember to SUBSCRIBE!

3 RIDERS - 1 GAME OF BIKE!
We all met up at Jackson skatepark to play a Game Of Bike! Matty Cranmer vs BIG BOY vs Cory "puppy arms" Berglar! The game started off with us checking out Big Boy's new haircut which gives him a striking resemblance to Simple Jack from Tropic Thunder! So we quoted the movie as often as we could! Then Cory forgot his helmet so Matty shared his helmet with him in between turns! Then Cory's bad luck continued when he got a flat tire on a half cab so instead of forfeiting he decided to borrow Matty's bike as well! So the game came down to the wire and all the dudes were absolutely killing it! But my favorite part was when Dylan hopped on Big Boy's shoulders and they decided to ride around the skatepark until Dylan fell off and nearly ripped Big Boy's nose off! It was an awesome day!

X GAMES 2016 I BROKE MY BACK...
Our last day of the 2016 summer X Games was definitely not what I expected. We started the day off with rain once again. So we drove from the hotel to the Circuit Of Americas with hopes of a break in weather and to our surprise the course was dry! We started a hectic full practice where I saw 3 near collisions on course and before i even got a chance to drop in the rain began again! The course was soaked and I helped clear off the puddles to get the contest started before the rain started again. As the contest began all the riders started sending some insane tricks so i knew i had to bring my A game! I dropped in and had an amazing start to my run and I did a backflip double tail whip over the box and as i landed on my backwheel and braced myself to rely on the brake to correct my position my brakes snapped and i looped out insanely hard on my butt. It hurt so bad and i couldn't breathe no matter how hard i tried.. Finally after 2 minutes i got my wind back and I made my way back to the medical tent where i realized just how hurt i really was.. I jumped in the EMS vehicle and they took me to the hospital for evaluation. I was in a lot of pain so they did a CT scan and that showed a grade 1 compression fracture in my T8 vertebrae so yes I broke my back riding Xgames.. I never thought that I would ever be able to say that and it's crazy to think just how lucky I actually am to be able to walk away from this scary crash. I am so bummed and frustrated about the crash because I wasn't at fault because of my riding I crashed because my bike broke on me.. Such a crumby X games for me but still i had such an amazing time and I am already excited for next year! Follow me @SCOTTYCRANMER and remember to SUBSCRIBE!

We drove over to the X games and started practicing my full run and trying to work out all the kinks so that come competition day, I can bring the best riding that i possibly can! after practice I had a Skype group chat scheduled for 4pm and me and Big Boy had such an awesome time hanging out and chatting with everyone! Then after that we went to watch the BMX vert Final where Dennis McCoy got bronze Simon Tabron got silver and Jamie Bestwick tied the man himself Dave Mirra for the most X games Gold Medals by a BMX rider! Such an awesome day and I am so excited for tomorrow! Follow me @SCOTTYCRANMER and remember to SUBSCRIBE!

X GAMES 2016! DAY 4
X games day 4 started off with a bit of rain that let up quick enough that we were able to still practice on time. But as we rolled up to the course the girl BMX riders were practicing and we hung out with them for a little while and even witnessed the first girl to ever flair a BMX bike on an X Games course! Hannah Roberts is Brett Banaseiwicz cousin and she just might be the best female BMX rider in the world currently! after the girls were finished I got a bunch of practice in an unlocked some new lines anymore tricks for my runs like a corked 720 and my back flip double tail whip! We also talked the Big boy into getting a flair challenge in on the park course! He squeezed his watermelon sized head into my helmet and flared my bike! He crashed more times than i have this week! After practice we went back to the hotel and got ready for the Vans BMX video premiere in which I have a full video part in! We met up with the team and had an amazing time debuting the video to BMX riders around the world! This Xgames week has been amazing so far and I am so excited to lay it all on the line for my 10th medal this weekend! Follow me @SCOTTYCRANMER and remember to SUBSCRIBE!
