A new film from the makers of the award winning film, Joe Kid on a Stingray... and High Desert BMX bring Stompin Stu Thomsen to WebCyclery Movie Night at McMenamins.

Stompin' Stu is the true story about perhaps the most dominant BMX racer in history, Stuart Thomsen.

From his battles off the track to his battles on the track, Stu Thomsen is known as "The Man" and "Stompin Stu", in part due to his size at 6 feet 1.5 inches and 200 lbs. He was one of the first BMX racers to show that BMX wasn't just for kids any more. Showing the very best in BMX racing (and BMX fashion) from the 70's and 80's, this film follows Stu from his beginnings as a kid thru his heyday as a powerhouse of the sport to his current life after BMX.

Featuring race footage and interviews with Stu Thomsen, Perry Kramer, Jesse James (yes, the car guy), Tommy Brackens, Eddy King, Brian Lopes, Scot Clark, Greg Hill, Skip Hess, Scot Breithaupt, Bob Hadley, Bob Haro, and Dana "The Duke of Oakley" Duke.

Kevin Gorman, a film critic known for his thumbs-up and thumbs-down reviews with his brother and fellow critic, Mean Todd, has praised Stompin Stu Thomsen and heralded it as "The sweetest Stu Thomsen BMX movie ever!" Mean Todd continued the accolades and added, "As long as you're going to be at McMenamins drinking a beer, you might was well be watching Stompin Stu Thomsen at the same time."

While WebCyclery Movie Night at McMenamins is a monthly fund raiser for Central Oregon Trail Alliance (, it is mostly an excuse to get together with a theater full of like-minded cyclists to watch a great bicycle movie, have a cold beverage, raise some money for local trails, and maybe win a door prize.

Hope to see you there!
