To celebrate its 30th birthday, SE racing (makers of the PK RIPPER) joined forces with DC Shoe CO. The result is a unique limited edition colourway of the PK Ripper bike. Although the BMX history collaboration with DC seems pretty strange, we can't deny that the bike looks bitchin' and the introduction party looked great. It's good to see BMX history getting some credit from different corners.

Unfortunately we didn't see much of this year's flatland contest at the FISE. The flatland crew had their own platform built up which wasn't massive and a bit wobbly but you couldn't tell so when it mattered. One of the highlights that I did get to witness was a performance of Mike Spinner in Pro Flat qualifying. No front brake, no pegs, no freecoaster, just his regular street bike.
The contest season has started and so we can witness our riders at different pro comps all over the planet. -Tobias Wicke has been to Asia twice this month, competed there at Metro Jam, PIG and Asian X-Games. Straight after he won his local Highway to Hill contest in Berlin.
-As you know Alessandro Barbero injured his foot while the Eastpak USA trip in March. After some short recovering he went back to Camp Woodward to get some serious practice sessions to get ready for 07. Well, on the way back to Italy he got really sick incl. 40 fever and stayd in bed for two weeks.

The Federal team went to Paris to shoot a video. It will be out next month but you can check the trailer right here, right now on FATBMX. Edd Allen has not been sleeping enough lately. Ahhh the stress of finishing a BMX video......
Mankind is very happy to announce that long time friend and all around great guy Senad Grosic from Vienna, Austria is from now on riding for Mankind Bike Co.. Senad is that guy you heard about doing bike flips and double whip tailtaps as one of the first riders and who likes to tell real funny stories, which usually end with an austrian slang saying nobody understands, like: Joa, bisst Du deppert!!!! You will see Senad at all the summer contest around Europe and some in the states this year.
