Photos and words by Devin Feil

I caught up with Mutiny's Evan Smedley this winter in Austin, near the tail end of a year and a half stay and just before he headed back to Pennsylvania.  Seeing as the Texas' capital city has always been one of the world's go-to BMX destinations, I thought I'd let Evan look back on his time in town and play favorites...
