Trains and BMX was the contest format for the Tjoeketjoek jam on Saturday in Rotterdam. With DJ Koen Soulcycle, host Surfstad, a Jury of old guys from The Hague and all new youngstar BMX riders from the Netherlands were the ingredients of this jam. Skateland opened their doors for a Saturdaynight jam. Four riders in a team riding thru the park like a train. The teams Rearwheel, KLM and Roffa where rocking in the final.
Team Roffa had a kind of dead wish tricks from the ghetto´s of Rotterdam. While team KLM proved their flying skills by opening with a frontflip (by Nicky) and some real high moves by Daniël Wedemeijer. But the guys really riding like a train were team Rearwheel with Vladdie, Michael, Brendan and Marten.
Name: Zachary Alexander Yankush aka Catfish Age: 31 Hometown: Youngstown, Ohio currently doing time in Dayton, Ohio
Did you grow up in Ohio? How was that? Zack: Yeah....I grew up here. It's not as bad as it's made out to be although the winters are horrible. I had a pretty good crew of ride to look up to when I first started riding in addition to having a semi-local bike shop that would put on contests. Ohio rules. Lots of fat girls though.
What did you want to be when you were growing up? Zack: For the longest time I wanted to be a lawyer..just because I had a lawyer friend growing up and he was PAID!

We still think it's funny that Markus Arnoldi and his band are participating at the Eurovision Song Festival in Germany. National TV for Kalle, that's crazy. But Kalle always had the talent and the drive to do things right. Remember the Beware videos in a time that not everyone and their uncle had a video camera and editing on a computer was just starting out. It didn't take Kalle long to learn new tricks. At least he just went for it and usually on his first attempt he came pretty close. I'm thinking flip fakies and flairs (flip-180-s) on vert ramps in the early '90-s. Anyway, we found these pics on the net and thought we'd share them with you. Good luck to Kalle on his way to being # 1.
Padded Cell's fourth birthday jam is happening in Feb at Rampworx, UK. A bunch of riding, a crazy heavy bike bunny hop contest (on 50 lbs. bike!) and the World premiere of the Padded Cell road trip DVD (edited by Joe Cox).
