YOU WON'T Book Release Party!!!

Last Friday was the official YOU WON'T book release party at the Jack London Bar in Portland, Oregon. Tons of riders and supporters came out and enjoyed the festivities. Some riders even flew out to check out the release party and book. Vert legend Ron Wilkerson and pool riding Godfather Mike Tokumoto both flew from California for the party. The entire creative team behind YOU WON'T  also attended. Mark Lewman (Project Manager), Ryan Davis (Designer), Jared Souney (Designer), Mike Daily (Editor), and Dean Dickinson (Creator/Producer). Food, drinks, music, BMX, and good times. What else could you ask for? The highlight of the night was definitely Empire's "Bad Idea" video premiere and Joe Dirt's ridiculous dance moves. Soooooooo sick!

YOU WON'T is now available at GOODS BMX. If you would like to purchase a copy click HERE
