KGB press release 1.1.2005
Alex Jumelin has joined the KGB team. First talking about Alex joining KGB was done earlier 2004 and finally, end of 2004 KGB and Alex Jumelin came to an agreement. This is a big step in the sport of flatland.
Kuoppa and Gomez are more than happy about this movement, they have always enjoyed riding in the same jam circle with Alex and now it will be even more interesting since Alex rides for KGB.

The new year is upon us. We've survived another year of FATBMX and we're not slowing down. Starting from 1-1-05 we'll be having a new web design. Jos Wissink and Rolf Thijssen have been working hard on the new set-up and it's going to be killer.
- Alain Ballering will be riding a St Martin Darwin frame from now on, he is so stoked he can't sleep anymore and threw in a party when he picked up his frame at Paul's Boutique.
- Zaandam skatepark is building a giant wooden pool, hope they are not bikehaters like Area 51.
- PURE BMX Distribution is forming its Factory team: Remco Elgersma (FBM), Michiel van Turnhout (FIT), Bas Brouwer (Flybikes), Dennis Keunen (Proper/Shadow), Michael v/d Lee (UGP), Riccardo Moes (SNAFU), and looking for a S&M and WTP rider..........
Everyone knows how hard it is to ride in the wintertime. When the Impact park called for a BMX jam on a Saturday night it was time to make it over there. It was BMX-only from 6pm till midnight. That's 6 hours of riding for a fee of 5 Euros at an indoor park. Not bad.
Making a skatepark profitable is next to impossible, that's why everyone needs to support them. The original Rollerpark in St. Niklaas has moved into an other location. The old hall was huge, and the current place is humongous. It is safe to say that it has everything you are looking for; a shop, a bar, games, video corner, pinball machine and.....ramps.
