1982. The game was called Skid Bottle. Played by me, Mike Turner, Joey Scheburger (no joke), and Bart Carboneau.
Find an empty 2-liter bottle and step on it to make it flat. Players take turns coming at it on their bikes. At the right moment, grab a handful of rear brake, locking the bottle under your rear wheel in a near-frictionless skid. Coolness given for wide fishtails or getting the bike sideways. Longest skidder is super rockin. Same award for worst crash.
