The Goat Cave Podcast (Ep:85- Brian Vowell)


Todays guest is a Mid-School legend that is responsible for some of the most technical front brake and front wheel moves that have ever been done, including the 360 to hang 5 180 out over the spine at the 2003 Roots Jam. This midwest beast of a rider is the perfect example of what it means to be an “All Around Rider”, no matter what you put in front of him, he will blow your mind! He has had the opportunity to ride for some of the biggest brands in BMX, like DK, Standard, and Etnies footwear. Brian Vowell is one of the most underrated riders in BMX and was well ahead of the game in his time as a Pro.
