Travis is a likeable guy. I don’t think he has many enemies. He looks at life from the bright side and is enjoying the ride at the moment traveling around with his BMX bike knowing that in years to come it might not be the same. Travis was invited for the RedBull Circle Of Balance contest in Oberhausen where we caught up with him. He just came off a pro flatland win in Birmingham England at the BIKE 04 event. The money won there will help him on his 3 month stay in Europe before he’s going to Melbourne, Australia to stay there with his lady for another three months. BMX for Travis is not about the big bucks. Meeting people, hanging out with friends and discover new places is more like it for the Canadian. More on Travis right here:
BMX Freestyle isn't just a boys game. More and more ladies hop onto the bike and enjoy themselves. One of the better known female riders is Cory Coffey. She even has ads in the magazines and yes, it's the girl that does flips. FATBMX had a few words with the girl role model. Let's hope for a bigger girl involvement at the parks in the future.

In the sleepy towns around the middle of south England, old folklore tells of a strange figure with wild hair, an impressive temper and whenever he is spotted he is usually astride a metallic beast, which is small but well controlled by the man. His legendary status has been confirmed as he was first sighted in the late eighties mastering the same type of metal beast in areas away from the prying eyes of the general public, and even in those days his temper was feared and his skills highly regarded.
Today if you walk around Bridport at night time and happen upon an industrial estate you might be lucky enough to hear the shrill cry of â€œFFFUUUUUCCCKKâ€? followed by a chilling boom of metal landing with force on wood.
Karl from the UK left a message in our FATBMX guestbook and asked for an interview with Garrett. We automatically assumed he meant Garrett Byrnes. We try to satisfy our visitors and got to work. We've tried to do a Cory Coffey before but she never got back to us. We didn't know how well Garrett is with computers but we were in luck as the T1 guys told us that Garrett had just made it to Austin to hang out. With a little bit of pressure from his sponsor (not likely), Garrett sent back the answers to the questions in a matter of days.
Karl, this one's for you.
