Australian HARO rider Luke Parslow won the X-Air dirt jump comp in NZ. A huge crowd witnessed Luke's first major competition win
and he beat a strong field with the likes of Nyquist, Bohan, Guettler,
Mackay. Ryan Nyquist finished 3rd behind Guettler.
His sponsor Repco Sport were so hyped about Luke's win at X-Air that they shouted him a flight in a Mig Jet Fighter! But Luke wasn't so happy after the flight feeling the effects of the 4G turns.
Oh boy, it's getting close. The Supercross of San Francisco is starting tomorrow. It's 23:30pm at the moment and I'm typing this from a groovy hotel on Grant street in downtown SF.
The stadium is down the street and it has been raining a lot. This race might turn into a mud fest but I'm okay with that. Riding a supercross track in front of a sold out crowd sounds like a challenge to me. Look at the starter list for the other participants; Vanilla Ice, Cab, Agah,

Dear Roots Jam Riders and Family:
First, let me say thank you so much for all the emails and questions about Roots. I know all of you have been waiting for dates and info for 2005. Well, we are changing things up quite a bit this year and there is a lot of new news so read closely.
About a month ago we discovered a major scheduling conflict with our
We at FATBMX like to bring you some spot checks every now and then. When we passed the Etnies park in Lake Forest we had to make a U-turn and shoot a couple of pictures to share with you.
To our surprise we weren't allowed in the park with a camera. Even after asking if they wanted a good or a bad report, the person at the entrance stuck to the "Company Policy" of only allowing photographers
RIDE BMX came out with the new issue.
Look for the Beringer cover in the newsstand.
It's got a Biz Jordan and Matt Beringer interview, 2 of the funniest riders around. You should see the Beringer picture in yellow, good stuff.
Also a real nice photo of Rooftop stands out.
The April issue has got a cassette hub buyer's guide, lots of handrail stuff, a St. Louis scene report and Primo and Demolition product tests.
The Oakley building in Foothill Ranch is pretty sick. Not that it's a new thing or anything but we thought we'd let you in on a few pics of their facility. Maybe you have not seen it yet.
The building is sitting on top of a hill overlooking the Foothill and Lake Forest area. The entrance feels like you're stepping into a computer game. Once inside the lobby it feels surreal. What company has a dragster car hanging on the wall or a torpedo sitting there. Here are a few pics to show you more.
Adi over at TWOAND8 sent over some news regarding the team:
There a few congratulations to be mentioned for the boys. Kung is having a baby, well his girlfriend Kerri Edgworth (Scott’s sister) is. I think they’re due in March so it’ll be kungDAD not kungDOG.
Graeme Hardie has decided to make an honest man of himself and is now engaged to long suffering girlfriend (She must be a saint). Kye Forte has taken Graeme’s lead and is now also loved up and engaged to the lovely Gemma. Leo Forte isn't engaged but he is rumored to have passed his driving test. No idea what vehicle he’s gonna be driving but I think it should get a goth make over or at least red velvet seats and black paint.
