I have a nephew, Marcas Grubbs, who is my younger sister Sheila Grubbs’ son. I remember him as this little bitty guy who we used to visit every time we went to Indiana. He loved to play basketball but when he was around 10 or so, I really remember him getting into riding these bikes. That’s what I called them but oh no, they are so much more than mere bikes…It is amazing what can be done riding one of these BMX bikes…and how much they cost along with all the accessories to do what they do with them…
Marcas is amazing in what he can do with his bike. It’s like they are almost one in the same. When I watch him in his videos, I’m transfixed and even when I think it can’t be done, somehow he makes it happen. Like I said, it’s like he and his bike are one in the same.
If you’re into the BMX and all the tricks that Marcas and his friends can make their bikes do, you need to watch the videos below. It’s really quite amazing, an art and a talent. These guys definitely have the ability to make things happen with their bikes, but I know it’s not been without a lot of hard work and pain!!!
Congrats Marcas ~ You and your friends Rock!

I’m a big fan of Marcas’ ability to invert the smallest transitions and plus, he made me laugh for a week straight when we hung out in Mexico.
http://bmx.transworld.net/1000186456/videos/dig-x-marcas-grubbs/ Marcas is one funny ass dude and he can absolutely wrap his bike around his back at any damn moment. Massively entertaining…I didn’t want it to end.
“Marcas Grubbs has been shredding forever. He’s got a unique style with tons of bike control – and inverts on street are always a welcome treat. Charlie Crumlish caught up with Marcas while staying in Austin and put together this edit for us. Make sure to pay attention to the final dunk, the extension is huge! Enjoy.”
Its unfortunate, but I feel like a lot of the local shredders in Austin might fly under the radar due to the high population of legends and super-pros. I am really stoked on this new edit Clint Zabodyn (aka Mag Wheel Guy) put together because it features some good riders who are off the beaten path.
