We want to say congratualtions to Dave Freimuth and his wife Patie on the expansion of their family. Yup, it's a son! Here's the 411 from Dave:
I just wanted to write and let everyone know that Patie finally let the bun out of the oven. Our new son Thompson was born at 5:16AM this morning after keeping his mother up for 26 hours... Patie did invent a couple new swears, but who can blame her. I'd rather break my pelvis 2 more times before going through what she did last night!

At one point my internet provider announced that someone would come by to swap the old modem for a new one. One evening the Chello man showed up at the door and when I opened it up, it was Rik Jurjus. Rik is a Dutch freestyle BMX addict who shows up at all events. You might not know who Rik is, so we asked him that question for you. And more......Who is Rik?
Just a simple guy trying to have some fun.
Where do you live?
I live in Arnhem, a small city in Holland

WHISTLER, Canada (August, 2005) -Ryan Nyquist, 4 time X-Games gold medalist takes first with a stunning last run performance at Red Bull Elevation while James Foster makes history landing the first ever triple tail-whip!
Red Bull Elevation was developed in partnership with BMX icon Jay Miron as the most innovative and challenging dirt jumping contest of its kind.
How cool would it be for people to come in your backyard and build some ramps. Well, that's happening in Matt Bischoff's yard in Ohio with the RedBull BuildOff. Confused? read on. And while we were at it, we checked on Matt's Failure Bikes situation too.-So what's going to happen in your backyard with that RedBull thing?
Basically, I thought it would rule to do a contest where ramp builders, which to me is an art form, would have a 3 day period to build ramps. I approached Wessel and we came up with a list of builders to participate.
