Following the original teaser, we take an official look at Nike’s The Pool. Kicking off last week, Nike converted Dagenham’s old ’70s public swimming pool into a unique BMX facility, with the help of park designer Dave Sowerby. The Pool will be open to the public to watch or ride for free until June 12, 2011, with an ongoing 4-week program of core events, community interaction and beginner workshops run with bikes, supervision, pads and helmets available for those who need them. This opening event featured appearances by Garrett Reynolds, Dennis Enarson, Harry Main, Jason Phelan, Alex Kennedy, Ruben Alcantara, Brian Kachinsky, Drew Bezanson, Van Homan and Sebastian Keep.
