Here's some info regarding the girl event Milkshake Series. As last year, the event will gather girls from everywhere to ride and chill out together in sunny south of France. The dates: 26th-27th of August. This year, the event will take place in Poussan, a friendly little park near Sete. It is supported by TAMTAMshop, etnies, Nikita, Jeevice, trauma and scORP. Also as partners Spade, Sunex, ex-templar (frenchys), twenty, ALK13, bmx up, cream and agoride, and of course Poussan city council and the general council. BMX and skateboard comps are organised as well as some demos of rollerblades, streetboard...
As usual, the comp is merely an excuse to get together and have fun, there is no pressure and no level required, so even if you've just been starting up, you're more than welcome to join the fun. The idea is to support girls in their riding, to keep BMX open to everyone who wants to give it a try. A jam will also be held on Saturday night for both guys and gals, so guys can bring not only their cheerleader pompoms, but also their bike, skateboard...

The other day Omar who rides for Pyskopath Industries/Bikes invited me over to their ramps in San Undisclosed , California. Psykopath started out as a rider owned racing team and later added on a freestyle team as well as products. Their "training facility" and office is based out of a house with a large ramp in the backyard. The entrance to the office is the best part since everyone walks up the ramp and climbs through the window. Inside there are bike parts everywhere and if there were any strangled hookers, they hid them well. Zack Held the team manager showed me the prototype of their 5150 frame. It has been revised to include a Spanish BB, internal headset and they shaved a bit of weight off as well.
