The fact that we do these FAT-Fridays on Fridays means that is has already been a week since the Mini-FAT-JAM took place. Boy were we lucky with the weather but you get what you deserve....haha. The turnout was great and yes it was possible to ride in a T-shirt. If your name is Mark Vos, you could even ride without a T-shirt. Just think about it, it was snowing at the beginning of the week....damn! The party at OJA would still have been a good one even if the day was a rain-out. The Electronical premiere was good. We had lots of BMX-ers cing it out. The bands that followed got the party started and the classic songs (including the Dire Straits) finished off the evening on a good note for everyone who did not have to drive home (all the drunks on the dance-floor). Days like these make you realize why we do what we do. Good times.
This weekend will be busy too. Today we're going to cruise by

ESPN will debut three new disciplines at X Games 14 this summer in Los Angeles - Skateboard and BMX SuperPark and BMX Street. SuperPark will be a 100 percent transition-focused design - blending a variety of terrain and obstacles into one seamless course. The SuperPark disciplines will highlight the all-around abilities of the world's best transition skaters and BMX riders. This will mark the first time ever that X Games will not have a stand-alone vert ramp. In addition to Skateboard and BMX SuperPark, BMX Street will be added to X Games where it will follow the same template as X Games mainstay Skateboard Street. The concept is simple, raw street features such as stairs, rails and ledges replicated in an arena setting.
BMX legend Mat Hoffman, the sport organizer for X Games BMX events, said: "The very core of BMX is to explore and be creative. This new format will promote this progression, providing the opportunity for the best riders to expand Park and Vert to new dimensions."
Hello Amigos, Remember our trip in Italy this past summer? Well, the video is done. Sergio Layos and Angel (Sergio's brother) edited it and it turned out great. The idea about this DVD is to make it very affordable or even for free. So all of you can watch it. It’s in HD so we don’t want it to be downloaded. It will lose so much quality so it’s kind of a shame. We wanted you to watch it properly. So for now it will be included for free in Props issue 68. We’ll let you know where else you’ll be able to get the DVD.
Anthony Pill sent in this story that he wrote for Ride UK a few years ago but it never got used. It's funny now so we're just gonna put it up here with pics from the trip. Enjoy.
The big bang. Or, how I opened a can of worms for the very reasonable price of $38, with the help of a twelve-year old Chinese boy named Ming. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Bob Haro felt a monumental stirring in his womb. His mouth dried to a

Do we need a new parts brand? you can ask yourself that question. Do we need good bike parts? The answer to that question is a lot easier. Éclat released their line of components at the Taiwan trade show. The stuff looks damn nice and it's not just sprockets and grips either. They've developed several different seats with rails, the pivotal system and a one-piece seat-seatpost combo that is hella light. The hubs are looking very sweet and they've got handlebars, cranks, pegs, crank spacers, pedals, sprockets, grips, rims, the whole nine yards. It's a full range developed from the ground up.
