BMX Grom Jake Rutkowitz Blasting a Huge One at Swamp fest BMX JAM in Florida

Grom Jake Rutkowitz Winner at Swampfest BMX JAM

BMX is fun. Trey Jones (Subrosa, Shadow Conspiracy, and Vans Pro) knows how to have fun. Swampfest is really fun. In its second year, this non competitive Jam style event created by Trey has catapulted to the top of the “Must not miss” events of the BMX year. Groms included.

This BMX festival brings swamps, dirt, pallets, camping, BMX and fun together. There was a street and ramp area, dirt jumps, Subrosa rail across water and Scotty Cranmer best trick jump.

Enter Jake Rutkowitz. Jake is rad. So is his Dad. They took the road trip from eastern PA to Central Fl to have some fun. Jake had “pretty much the best weekend of my life.”

We’ve had our eye on Jake for some time now. The kid is tuff as nails, loose as can be, and always smiling. Making it though the Swampfest jumpline, is a massive achievement for a 9 year old, but Jake won the Dirt event at this years Swampfest and we couldn’t be more stoked!

Florideah Swampfest went down in Astatula, Florida on February 17.

Dorian Giordano and Rylan Kindness in China at FISE WorldChina was such an awesome experience, it starts with a really long plane ride – mine was all together 23hrs with a stop over in San Francisco, which was cool cause then I connected on the plane with Daniel Dhers… but he was in first class cause he was a pro… hopefully one day I’ll get to be up there too😆😈

It’s a really different culture and hardly anyone speaks English. When we asked the driver to bring us to the clothes market somehow we ended up getting dropped off at the fish market..lol. The toilets are actually just holes in the floor that you step over even in McDonald’s, that was definitely different. What was cool was that I went with Daniel Dyers, Alex Schuyler and Cho a Red Bull rider from Taiwan and we went to the Panda Sanctuary and were able to see so many PANDAS even babies. Plus Chengdu has some of the most amazing street spots I’ve ever seen. Me, Jaden, Alex Mollaev and Arsenay were riding all over the place.

FISE Chengdu this year had the best of the best riders because so many were coming to compete and qualify for UCI. So it was such an amazing experience to meet and ride with so many of my friends and idols from around the world. Even though a lot of us didn’t speak the same language, we all spoke BMX and we all just hung out and rode and swapped bikes, it was just such an amazing experience. Winning the gold was pretty awesome but actually we were all cheering each other on and it wasn’t the competitive vibe I’ve been feeling at other events, that’s why I took a big break from competing for a while, I just wanted to go back to riding for fun and not focus on anything else than just having fun, supporting my homies and just getting that stoke back. Meeting everyone was the highlight of the trip and I’m so glad my grandparents sent me as my grad present because I have memories for a whole lifetime.

The people in Chengdu were amazing, they kept taking pictures with me and Jaden and Iki and even kept giving me their babies to hold to take pictures with!
