Jared Washington’s a cool ass dude. I remember him teaching me barspins at the Old Bridge skatepark about 10 years ago. He was riding breakless even back then, before it became the thing to do. His bike was a complete piece of garbage considering he worked at a shop. Understandable I guess because dude was just hemorrhaging bike components at the time. Definitely a rough spot to be in; not quite ready for sponsorship, working part time, but riding at a level that’ll get you seriously injured or at least burn a hole in your pocket replacing parts. Obviously, Jared toughed it out and by the time I put down the bike in ‘03 he was picked up by Animal. As you can tell from this clip, he’s a funny guy, real upbeat, and definitely deserving of a signature frame. This concludes another BMX Friday.
