The day after the Mini-FAT-JAM it was another early day when Sander, Bern and Rob picked me up to go to Belgium for the first MX GP of the 2006 season. One hour later we parked the car on the Zolder circuit and stepped in the mud to watch early morning practice. It started to rain a bit but fortunately it dried up in the afternoon so we could watch some exciting racing going on and most and for all, we same a new battle in the MX1 class between Stefan Everts, and Sebastien Tortelli! The MX2 class saw some great racing too with 6 different leaders over the 2 heats. Read what went on exactly in the official press report from the people at Youthstream.
Tortelli challenged Everts in Zolder
Weather: rain in the morning, sun and wind in the afternoon Temperature: 13°C Attendance: 16000 over the weekend
Rick Thorne has given up BMX. Sick of all the comments he received he made a switch to playing golf.
It might not be fully "Hollywood" or "Rockstar" but at least Thorne can chill out a bit. His black clothes are out the window but he couldn't quite give up the black hat yet. Titleist is already in the bag as a paying product sponsor. Golf Punk tattoo in the works?
The weather has been terrible lately but the Sugar Hills trails are looking sharp. There's no puddle to be seen and all jumps are shaped. Those who expect to see mud will be disappointed, the trails proved once again that they can take a rain shower or two. Thanks to all the locals for digging. See you at the [url=//fatbmx.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=1339]mini-FAT-JAM[/url] during the afternoon or at the OJA party at night for cheap beer and live music.
Just added: It's Saturday and it's SUNNY out! Bring the BBQ.

Name: Hoang Tran Age: 18 Hometown: Raised in Council Bluffs, Iowa but now I live in San Diego, CA What's it like riding where you live? Hoang: It's amazing... everyone here rides together all the time but somehow we all have really different riding styles so it's not only fun to ride with all my friends but to watch them. Who are some of the people who help you out? Hoang: I ride for Kink, Kronik energy, Vult helps me out, and munklebud! They all help me out a bunch and are awesome!.. I've also gotten help from Jim Bauer at Odyssey.
So Hoang, I hear the only reason you learned to do nose manuels for so long was because you rode bent forks is that true?
FLATLAND is the most artistic form of BMX riding, blending unique styles and cultural backgrounds. Riders exhibit intense focus and discipline as they execute a seamless array of tricks on their bike. Flatland also has an international flavor, capturing the creative influence from people around the world. We capture this creativity and variety of riding styles through our Annual Flatland Voodoo Jam event in New Orleans, Louisiana. This year will be the 2nd annual event and promises to be larger and more recognized than last year's event.
Redline’s reigning UCi World Champ looked like his normal self in the first moto of AA-pro on Saturday; snappin’ hard and powering out of turn one to the familiar 5 or 6 bike length lead … that is, until he hit the double step-up at the usual Mach Speeds that only he can achieve aboard his Flight Pro XL.
As Bubba recalls, “My front wheel just barely clipped the jump and I went flying over the bars.” He got up to a gushing elbow that eventually would need 15 stitches.
With much amiability we were in the city of Lima for the first great Dirt Jump event of that was made in that city. Some demos were held a few days ago on the the dirt jumps. After that, Peter Heningsen of www.bmxperu.com and Omar Cosio' de Red Bull contacted us so that we made madnesses after a championship that would have the premises. In demo they were my two brothers, Mauricio and "Junior", Mauricio Mayorga and I, all mounting a little and trying to make a pleasant spectacle for the people who attended the event.
The 'hell is for zombies' jam is taking place this weekend and the weather is looking good so here's some info about they day for those that want to know: Starts at 12pm at Victoria skate park in Auckland city center, New Zealand. There will be a free BBQ (bring your own beer). It's a jam only, not a comp! although there will be prizes for the bunny hop, long jump, and ledge comp, as well as plenty of other prizes for best trick or rider of the day, that sort of shit.
