For the 2nd consecutive year, Intense BMX has been named the bike of the year by the racers of the American Bicycle Association. Intense BMX is proud to have achieved and given such an honor by the BMX racers of the ABA. 2006 has been a big year for Intense BMX.

We would like to thank all of our loyal fans who voted for us and helped us win back to back Bike of the year titles. We would also like to thank all of our sponsored riders and teams who have played a huge role in helping us to get where we are in BMX today.

The new Hoffman video runs you through Mat’s injuries (also see the bonus section) and he’s not the only one pushing the limit.

The first issue of the 2007 year has a flatland photo on the cover and again it's Terry Adams. That must be two covers for him in 12 months. That's pretty big considering some people think that flatland does not exist. Steve-O Croteau takes the double page contents spread. News, gossip and rumors can be found in Inside Scoop. The Experts answer the mail before Cory Jarmen takes over for 7 pages (interview). The Felt Pyre gets tested. The Tech Tip shows how to fix a flat. Everyone should know how to fix a flat and not just drop the bike off at the bike shop.

Here is how each of the Double A Marketing riders finished up:
Randy Stumpfhauser has been flying for the past few races, taking home wins. With an outside shot at the ABA #1 Pro title, Randy had his full focus on winning the ABA Grands.
