We're trying something new here at FATBMX. YouTube has thousands of BMX videos and we can use these for the site. If you see something interesting or if you've posted something good and it's BMX related on Youtube, let us know. Any feedback is welcome so let us know if you hate this too.
Stop 1: Lohhof 16/17.06. Get ready for the kick off of this years PlayStation® The Champ Series on 16th and 17th of June in Munich (Lohhof to be exact), Germany. For the first time the tour will consist of four stops with four disciplines: park, miniramp, dirt and pool. It’s for amateurs and pros. Each contest will have a price money of 1500 euros, plus a PlayStation® Portable for the winners in pro and a lot of free stuff for the amateurs. Last year winner Mark König will try to get the title again since the overall winner will receive 2000 euros extra!
The new locations for this years BMX-Contest-Tour will be the following:
Tickets for Red Bull Empire of Dirt were snapped up within just ONE WEEK of applications opening. But! If you live near Newton Abbot, you could get your mucky mitts on a two-day pass at the miniscule cost of £7 (including transport to event, no car access). This pass entitles you access to the World's First BMX Dirt Slopestyle on both Friday 15th June and Saturday 16th June 2007. Additionally, this ticket entitles the holder to transport to and from the event! YOU MUST UTILISE THIS TRANSPORT TO VALIDATE YOUR TICKET!
Nate Wessel and Ron Kimler are at it again. Francisco Zurita managed to sneak out some photos of the building of the new indoor street course at Woodward West. From the looks of it Nate has gone creative again. Although it's not finished yet, with a working crew like this it wouldn't be long until the new section in the Hangar can be shredded.
Armin Batoumeni is taking care of the 100 contests event in Paris/Cergy on 15-17 June 2007. Another Year, another good opportunity to come and ride and take it easy. The BMX Flatland part of the 100 contests event will take place on a brand new dedicated tarmac area. There will be one zone for practice and another one for the contest. Program/Schedule:
Can't live without the Pin-Up. We actually didn't have one last Friday (sorry) but we're back this week with some serious 21+ material and yes, the connection to a BMX bike is there. If you want to see good stuff on the FATBMX Pin-Up section, send in your photos. We want to see them.
You want to watch a kick ass video and you don't want to pay for it. If you've got 9 minutes time, you can watch the Federal video online. They've got you covered. All you need to do is go to their website and you will see the Federal Paris button. Click on it and you're good to go. Watch Derek Strickland, Dan Cox, Dan Lacey, Mark Love and Davey Watson tear shit up in France. What are you waiting for?
RIDEBMX gave away some of the tricks you could expect in the Grounded DVD. Paul received the mag mid-May so we had to wait for three weeks to see that gnarly Ruben wallride in motion. Just as nuts as the photo. What else is in the latest issue of ride?
