While at Midwest Mayhem 3, Rick got a few shots of some of the riders, including this one of Matt, doing a moto whip over a box jump. Head over to Rick’s Flickr to see more.

Midwest Mayhem 3 organizers Antonyo, Sam and Kris shot over Shakes’ photo of the attendees and a little thank you to the sponsors:
“The turnout was small but the energy was big and very positive! Midwest Mayhem 3 could not have happened if it wasn’t for the support of 4 Seasons Skatepark, Hotel Foster, iMiNUSD, Unknown Bike Co, TTV blog, Thomas Bike Shop, Chop Em Down Films, The Grime, #fixiefamous and all of the other sponsors that took part in the event this year. A very special thanks to Gus Molina for the work on the fliers and the downright amazing illustration on the TTV Midwest Mayhem shirts.
Fixie Famous, the blog that’s piggy-backing on a fun hashtag that Jonathan Davis coined, posted the first and maybe only video coverage we’re going to see from Midwest Mayhem 3. It’s really quick and to the point, focusing on some bangers from Antonyo (Warhol?) and Boothby.
All the major trick comps going down these days have a lot to owe to Midwest Mayhem. It was really the first big competition and the pivotal moment in fixed freestyle. After RideNStyle and other events went down this year, it’s easy to get hung up on the small turnout for MWM3, but I kind of like that.
I’m bummed I couldn’t make it out but it looks like people had a blast and a lot of these dudes are hanging out in Chicago for the rest of the month. Now the media blitz that will come from that trip will be off the wall. And even though I’m giving Fixie Famous a hard time about their name, I greatly appreciate this video…
What I would consider the originator of the fixed freestyle competitions is back for its third year. Midwest Mayhem returns! Don’t miss out! Unless a magical bird flies me to Milwaukee and then directly to LA for free, I can’t make it again this year. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to make it out, especially with those prizes on the line.
Gus did an incredible job on the Midwest Mayhem 3 flier. I can’t wait to finally make it out to Milwaukee again for this. Stoked!
