Pessac Power Nine here. How do you summarize the Bmx weekend of this 9th edition of the Urban Vibrations in three words? I believe that the "butchery" of Pessac has never well carried its nickname as this year, as the general level of the riders was high this weekend! In an arena of Bellegrave the first thing which strikes is a majestic mini with spine, Braun Cruzer3, which throne under the capital. The configuration of the park is rather sympathetic and the revival of the modules is perfectly assured this year by a tasty mixture of street and park elements without forgetting the Braun mini well positioned.

The trip consited of the new Odessa team that was formed by 4down and featured street tearaways Tom Blyth, Mark Tanner, James Cox, Jim Newrick, Cleggy, Josh Bedford, Dean Hearne, Ride photographer Steve Bancroft, American import Kelly Bolton and myself Bomber.
The plan was to meet at Hastings and to drive to the holy grail of Barcalona and to get footage for an upcoming dvd. So off we set, Dean Hearne took the reigns of the van which was shitting the bed enroute to the ferry. It was figured that the van had some kind of polterguist which lead to some kind of nest being formed in the back of the 17 seater by some of the more religious members of the trip in an emergency exociom kind of way........which is half true (the van just needed the cob webs blowing out and some of the guys took to dosing on top of the bikes and bags for sleep, they did become attatched though to what was fondly called the nest).
