Ten years of BMX freestyle domination. From when to when was that? DMC: From my rookie pro year in '86 through the end of 1995. The last year there was an overall title.
If there would be a BMX Hall of Fame, you would be the first person on the wall. Do you care about something like that? DMC: Thanks for the compliment. History is important and should be remembered, but it can also be easily manipulated, so I try to place more emphasis on the present. Irving Feffer summed it up best when he said:
One of the most prestigious flatland contests is about the take place in Japan. The third edition of the Red Bull Circle of Balance has 18 Flatland icons from 9 countries travel to the land of the rising sun to battle for the $ 25,000.= USD prize purse. The COB website is now online so have a look of who are going to be there. In the meantime, orgainzer Andy Zeiss is figuring out the Japanese toilets. They come with an instruction card in Japanese and if you push the wrong button you're in for a surprise.
A while ago we had some pics up on this section of FATBMX about Matt Bisschoff's band Dandeliondeath. Looks like they had another performance because we received some new shots. The Failure Bikes owner doesn't hold back when he's on stage and he's not alone. By the way, he wants all bitches to be his friend at the Dandeliondeath myspace site . Now check the hot photos and by the way, one of these hot babes is his wife.

It took 9 months and 9 days extra for Boyd de Jong to see this world. Paul de Jong and Carry van Cuyck are now the proud parents of Boyd. Boyd was born today at 12:45pm and weighed in at a little over 9 pounds. Both baby and mother are doing well. If your Paul's Boutique order isn't shipped the same day this week, you know why.
We're proud on the expansion of the De Jong family.
Madison, Wis. – Jan., 2007 – Mongoose dirt and street rider Cam White is putting together the mother of all Freestyle BMX Jams on February 3, and the event’s proceeds all go to Support Kids with Cancer charity. The Jam starts at 4 p.m. on February 3 in Wamboin, Australia – 20 minutes from Canberra, Australia’s capital city. All proceeds made from the Hillside Jam’s BBQ and bike auction will be donated to Camp Quality, a charity to benefit children with cancer.
“I’ve been wanting to put together a big jam like this for a long time,” said White. “It’s been a big job, coordinating with the city, bringing in the dirt and the tools -- basically creating this thing from scratch. But it’s going to be a lot of fun and it will help kids that really need help.”
The BMX element consists of massive downhill jumps, fun lines and transfers built from 30 tons of dirt and a big deck roll-in. Think Red Bull’s Whistler contest but better.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,Yeah, Yeaaaaahhhh. My name is Surridge and I'm no man if I can't do it then noone can.....
That's how the song about Ronnie Surridge starts. You gotta listen to this, it's awesome. Good friend Ronnie Remo wrote and recorded it and if I'm right we hear Ronnie himself do some rapping on the FALCON song too. Go to Remo's myspace now and hit the FALCON song, that's the one about Ronnie Surridge. Priceless. It helps to know Ronnie personally but here are a few lyrics you can expect: -Sixty grand are in my hand and I love living in the dream land; in the USA , the USA, the USA........................
-Ring up Badders, for some shoes................................
-100 hunnies on the net that's what I've come to expect.........
The new 07 line up Free Agent World Team has had a busy weekend World-wide with some good results to kick off the new season. -New Australian sensation, Caroline Buchanan, just secured the Mountainbike Bike 4x Australian National Championships last week, only then to hop back on her BMX and take another win at the UCI event in Melbourne this past weekend. Caroline is not only racing BMX for Free Agent, but also competing for KHS in 4x and Downhill and aims to race at both the BMX and Mountainbike Worlds later this summer. Can she medal in all three disciplines, something no one has ever done in the same year? Stay tuned. Our other Free Agent World Team rider from Australia, Nicole Callisto the 05 Junior World Champion, suffered a bad crash at the same event and was unable to carry on racing the rest of the weekend. We hope she makes a speedy recovery.
