The Legend of Ralphs.

Some of you may be wondering what's this Ralphs place all about? What's the story???

Rumor has it that a street rider named Robert Granado found Ralphs and let the riders know of the spot.
Those who have only been in the game for 7 years or less missed Ralphs back in it's golden age, (1999-2003). Just about everyone in the LA area would drop by Ralphs at one time or another. Actually, people from all over the world would drop by. Alex Jumelin, Kotaro Tanaka, Michael Steingrabber, and others came through. In recent times, I heard Matthias D. rode there. Since then, the riders have migrated to other spots, Studio City, North Hollywood Park, Rose Garden, etc. Here's some classic footage from Ralphs' golden era from an Intrikat video called "Connect."

It's raining felines and K9'z

Rain Rain go away....It's been raining in SoCal for I can't even count how many days straight. Even Ralphs, the legendary indoor spot, isn't immune from the flooding.

Here we are riding on our dry "islands" at a Ralphs night session.
Fly-y-y-y Mike Chua keeping things fresh.

Spirit of BMX!

My boy, Hiroshi from 430 clothing, just dropped this video from back in the day in Japan. I'm feeling this video because it represents the spirit of BMX at the time. People weren't stressed about comps and trying to get sponsored. BMX had more of a free spirit in those days. Of course not many riders were over the age of 25 back then either. Anyway, looks like everyone had a fun time traveling around, sessioning, and hitting on chicks. Man, that's what life's all about, right there.
