Ever wonder what was going on around here back in the late 70's and into the 80's? Probably not but I'm here to show you anyways. Fitchburg hosted an all Pro event back in the old hockey rink with riders like ( names will be spelled wrong I'm sure)Joe Johnson, Mike Dominguez, Ron Wilkerson, Martin Apario, and many more. The town of Whitensville Ma held a freestyle contest with Fred Blood, Dominguez, your local hero John Lawson, Chris Lashua (who went on to roll around in a giant wheel for the Cirque du Soleil) and many other local rippers. There were tracks all over...Dunstable, Lunenburg, Wakefield and others packed with riders every weekend. Lake jumps, backyard tracks, ramps, pits and street riding were all there. It's cool to see it all still alive and well...and way sicker.
