We've tried to do a scene report on the etnies park in Lake Forset twice but were denied access. This not only pissed us off but left us puzzled on their policy of having photographers shoot their park to promote its presence. We received the new 2007 photographer policy by e-mail and were curious if they had figured it out by now. Happy New Year 2007 - The new year has arrived and the Skatepark will have more programming and fundraing this year than ever before.
From the looks of it you guys want more BMX/bike related pin-up shots. We used to do a pin-up of the month section but it has turned out in a weekly pin-up (on Fridays). Hope you appreciate the effort. Contributions are welcome. This one came in from Wisconsin. WisBMX.com!

The FIse used to be the season opener when we didn't have 5 events going on at the same weekend. Then it moved to the summer time which had great weather but it was actually too hot during the day to ride. The organization has changed not only the date (16-20 May), but also the venue. It will now be closer to Montpellier city and not on a grass field near the Zenith. If you want to participate you can already enter. Amateur day is from 16-18 May and the pro contests are on the weekend (19-20 May). Down here you have further info on the event:
Heading out to Brazil, I thought that it was going to be a breeze. Not realizing how tough it would be to get there, this is how it started. I was supposed to fly out to Sao Paulo on Wednesday, but had some visa issues. Therefore I had to fly out the following day. On my lay over, I had my boarding pass ready to go, when the unthinkable happened... I was pulled out for more visa issues! Once again, I had to miss the plane and was told that if I didn't get a visa overnight that I would not make the contest. But to me the impossible some way some how, with the help of Leslie and Jimbo (thanks a lot), I made the impossible possible and was on my way to San Paulo.
