Ever since getting back into BMX racing 2 1/2 years ago I have always wanted to get the track in South Woodham Ferrers reopened. After talking to a couple of people I knew who rode or raced there we decided to give it a go. It seems we were just in time. After an initial talk with the council today it seems that the land the track is on is earmarked for a total re-development at the start of the New Year.

You've got your car packed to go on a road trip or you simply want something different to ride. Problem is, you don't know where to go or don't have time searching for spots that nobody has ridden yet. Welcome to 20Zwo.de. It's a site to keep the local scene alive and it provides photos of architecture that is meant to be ridden. The site is based in the Bochum/Wuppertal area and shows amazing spots. If we would have more sites like these it would be easier to find things to ride.
The new issue of Desillusion (from France) came in and we had to flip some pages to find the BMX action.

The BMX category has the following nominated riders that are up for the BMX FUCK'IN AWARD: -Arthur Dietrich -Romuald Noirot (Bibi) -Maxime Charveron -Luc Legrand -Kevin Kalkoff -Alex Valentino -Matthias Dandois -Patrick Guimez
We like it when a (big) company comes in and does something for the sport. RedBull's backyard-digger and Backyard Build-off are a good example. Nike 6.0 is following up. Instead of hiring a stadium, they're going to riders' backyards and throw a jam there after they have fixed up the place. Last week ramp builder Nate Wessel started working on Ben Snowden's backyard ramps and gave them a complete overhaul (thanks to Nike).
Shaun Scarfe at Four 1 Four Ltd has been working hard to get the Resi here on time and he has done well, it arrives on Monday! (don't even ask him about the customs/taxes/VAT crap nightmare bullshit that he has had to wade through to get it in to the UK, but it's done now so good job Shaun). The Resi Frames are up and virtually ready for a surface to go on. The Main Vert ramp is now taking its last surface which as you can see from the pictures is going on diagonally and we are taking our time to get the sheets fitting perfectly so that the ramp feels reallly smooth and fast.
The following 12 vert riders will be riding at the 2007 Dubai X-Games December 6-8. The 15-man street list is still being worked on but will be announced as soon as it's confirmed. Da 12 vert dawgs: -Simon Tabron -Jay Eggleston -Zack Warden -Coco Zurita -Ronnie Remo -Steven McCann -Koji Kraft -Eduardo Terreros -Dave Brumlow -Jean Marie Bartsch -Kiattichai Wanitsakul -Jan Valenta
You have been racing BMX since an early age, did you ever think you would become a professional BMX rider? I started racing when I was almost 4 years old, to become a professional was always a dream for me, which became reality in the beginning of 2006
You are a member of the Dutch BMX team that is trying to score points to get as many tickets for the Olympics as possible. How many Elite men riders do you think Holland will be sending to the 2008 Games? We are in current 2nd place so I think we can send 3 male riders if we don’t do anything stupid... and we are hoping to send 1 woman.
You recently got nominated as an Olympic athlete. What advantages does this have?
