In April, lifetime FBM rider and street riding pioneer Mike Tag was diagnosed with Stage ll Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The BMX community quickly rallied to support Tag's cause. Benefits were organized and money was donated to help pay for his chemotherapy. And currently, Tag is still undergoing chemo, and the doctors believe he is showing improvement.
Earlier this month, FBM organized a benefit jam for Tag at the East Shore Skatepark in Ithaca, N.Y. They never made it into the park, but fun was had by all and all proceeds went to Mike Tag's cancer fund, which is still accepting donations. And yes, this is the only video this year that you will see both the Cookie Monster and Dennis Condusta riding BMX bikes in. Video by Stew Johnson.
