First and foremost I want to thank everyone who has helped in passing this message along. The initial flood of responses warranted a phone call from PayPal to make sure we were expecting the participation we got! We have received a ton of emails today and the money is starting to come in from all over the world! The immediate goal is to help with living expenses for the next six weeks as Stephen’s family from Great Britain and his wife and children will likely be staying in Baltimore MD for the next six weeks. This will no doubt be something that needs our help for a very long time.
Remember there are three different ways that you can help immediately. All proceeds will be given directly to the Stephen Murray Family.
Jay Miron offered Bibi a ride at the 2000 X-Games in San Francisco. Bibi didn't know what had just happened to him. His hero asked him to ride for him. Since then Bibi has been around. He has his own model at MacNeil too. Riding for Macneil has its perks when the boss puts on international (invite only) contests. Bibi isn't complaining, he never is. Are you sure he's French?
1) What does the Elevation comp mean to you? Hopefully it mean big jumps, a good time with good friends and why not some new ones, good partys, the sushi village, for me seat and see the other good riders...and tons of other good stuff. 2) Do you fancy riding real trails going down a hill? Fancy mean funny??? oh yeah, if it’s not too dangerous I’ll like that. I like to be scared and riding fast.
3) Have you seen photos of the 2007 dirt jumps yet? I saw some videos of Nick and it looks really dope. But I know Nick, he is really good and smooth, so it looks easy, but when you are on the top, it’s not the same

Masterbuilder JD SENNID and the GENERAL LEE have changed the famous SUGARHILLS trails in Aarle-Rixtel last weekend. Together with a lot of locals and a bulldozer provided by the city of Laarbeek they worked their ass off to make new lines. You can find 2 big jumps right from the higher/steeper starting hill and going to a big berm coming back with 4 jumps with all kinds of transfer posibilities ending in a big berm/pool and a wall ride. Of course it is not ready yet but if you come over with a shovel it will be ready sooner so don't be lazy and help the SUGARHILL locals to make the trails better than ever before.
