The third stop of the Battle in da Club tour 2007, Germany´s first and one and only Bmx Flatland series, will be the incredible Lago Bay Beach Club in Hamburg (11.08.2007). A 5000 square meters area, everywhere you look fine-grain sand, a huge swimming pool and in the middle of this city-paradise the 16 best German & Austrian Bmx Flatlandriders will get together, to decide the best of them in a Battle mode full of suspense. One against one, man against man, because at the end there can be only one winner! After the prize giving the riders and the audience are able to abandon their selves to the sins of summer-sun-beach life, drink some Red Bull and Cocktails, enjoy the view over the bay from Hamburg or relax in the swimming pool.
The whole will be improved through the incredible Dj Coolman, the Clark Gable of the Turntables. Most of you will know him because of his membership with Fünf Sterne Deluxe.

The next T-Mobile Local Support Challenge takes place at BMX Park Darmstadt / Germany on 28th of July. This time the BMX teams will battle in the discipline BMX Miniramp.
The Local Support style stays the same: Every national BMX spot can compete with one or more teams, each consisting of three riders – thereby it doesn´t matter, if the rider is a pro or am, sponsored or not.
The best team wins money for a new Local Support Obstacle for their local BMX park. Furthermore there are many other top-prizes for the challenging teams, like for example a complete organized BBQ for 30 persons including a BBQ-master. The best unsponsored teamrider receives the T-Mobile Wildcard and goes directly to the BMX Miniramp final of the T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds Summer Session on 26th of August in Hamburg.
I started keeping a daily journal way back in 1987 when I was only 15 years old. Back when I was a just a freshman in high school. Since then, every single freakin’ day of my life has been documented in these journals. If it happened in my life, then I wrote it down & documented it. And believe me; I’ve got some stories to tell! Looking back over the years, here is a journal entry that stands out and also my comments looking back now. Hoffman Contest, SCRAP Skatepark -Chaos November 18th, 1993 Actual Journal Entry “We went over to the SCRAP skatepark in the afternoon & rode all day. I learned a lot of good stuff. Afterwards, a zillion BMXers went out to some country style bar. Matt Hoffman & Rick Thorne were singing on stage. It was funny!
Mankind is very happy to announce that close friend and hyper energy duracell Björn “Bommel” Mager from Berlin, Germany is now riding for Mankind Bike Co. .
Bommel is overly friendly but also that generally loud and a lot talking nerd, which is even doing double whip flips after being a party animal the night before and looking like a zombie on a 20” inch.
You might have seen Bommel going bananas at the Masters in Cologne, if not come to Rebel Jam in Berlin and witness the slickness.
