The FSO posse is once again putting a jam together. This time the venue is the indoor skatepark at Burnside skateshop in Deventer, Holland. The date is 13 January 2007 so if you have been away from your bike too much this winter, put it in the car and head for the FSO session. Starts at 2pm and it's only 5 Euros to ride. A good opportunity to say happy new year to all your BMX friends.
In what point of your "riding career" did you decide you wanted to stay involved? Chad: Staying involved in the sport was a no-brainer. There hasn't been a time that I was like "I am over this". Maybe one time this past summer when I got hurt, but I healed and got back on the horse. I didn't know having a skatepark could start a scene and make it as strong as it is. It's insane how good it is.
SE Bikes would like to welcome the two newest members to our Factory Race Team: 14 Expert Chase Hines out of South Carolina and 16 Year old Girl Amanda Carr out of Florida Chase has placed on the UCI World podium and has earned many top-5 National Numbers over the years.

It's the time of the year again when people are sending Christmas cards to eachother. We've already received a bunch over the mail but the digital ones are coming in too. Do you have a cool one? Let us know. Mail them to us and in a few weeks we'll post them here at FATBMX. Get creative, do some photo shopping when you don't have snow around, find that big Christmas tree and ride it, can you jump your bike in a Santa suit? We want to see it. Hit the Contact button in the left column for the e-mail address.
The latest poll has closed. After more than 1700 votes it is clear that you riders will do a litle bit of everything when it rains outside. First you sleep in, then you check your myspace and FATBMX before you head to the bike shop to tune in your bike. After that it's off to the skatepark with your video camera because when you return home it's time to edit that video clip.
When it rains outside I:
-Go to the local park: 24% -Sleep in: 22% -Hang out at the local shop: 20% -Edit a video: 17% -Work on my website: 15%
When winter arrives you gotta figure out your riding possibilities. Get your group of riding friends together, rent a place tall enough to build ramps in and get to work. We've seen sketchy ghetto ramps under bridges but this German version is a bit better. 20 locals pay the rent. Sven Hoffman and Dirk Becker are the main forces behind it and got to work where everyone else kept talking about bowling in the other corners. Get off your ass and make things happen.
