Over the last few weeks my son has taken over the DVD player. He knows how to operate it and now thinks it's his. The Bambi and Peter Pan movies have made room for SX exposed, Skills and Crush. All three DVD's are fast paced MX flicks with a whole bunch of flashy graphics and loud music. Philip loves it and now knows that Ricky rides the yellow bike, Bubba rides green and his favorite Chad Reed rides the blue bike. Needless to say, Philip has a # 22 numberplate on his blue Haro Z12 and loves the home track around the couch making MX noises. When I found a moment I sneaked in Soul # 29 in his DVD player. It almost felt like I was watching slow-mo as the first couple of clips either had some slow riding in it or the editing was relaxed. What it probably was is the change from the fast paced MX movies and then watching Soul 29, making the BMX video magazine look very slow comparably. The main part of Soul is over an hour long making this DVD worth the money.

LOS ANGELES – ESPN’s X Games announces the first wave of athletes who have been invited to compete at X Games 12, to be held in Los Angeles August 3-6, 2006. All athletes receiving invitations to compete at X Games 12 are chosen by a sport-specific selection committee. Criteria and timing of invitations varies by sport and discipline, as it is based on the state and event schedules of that particular sport. The only exception is each gold medalist from X Games 11 (2005) receives an automatic invitation to compete. Information on each committee and its sport’s invitation process can be found on each X Games sport organizer website.
Round 9 of the 2006 ABA Pro series national events was held this past weekend at the Rockford BMX track. Rockford is known as one of the smoothest and fastest tracks on the national tour and is one of the best tracks in the nation. A purse power track, Rockford showcases the riders that have been putting in the time training. Hot and humid conditions met the riders smack on at the start of the race weekend on Saturday, and Sunday was an all day rain laden race day. Both days had exciting race action from the Double A Marketing pros who were in attendance. Here is how Kyle Bennett and Randy Stumpfhauser finished up the weekend:
Kyle Bennett has become the most dominant AA Pro in the past month. Kicking things off last weekend with 2 Elite Pro wins in Evansville, Kyle backed it up with another 2 huge AA Pro wins at the Rock. On Saturday, Kyle won all 3 AA Pro main events, pulling every AA Pro in Rockford. Kyle had huge leads and his trademarked effortless looking riding style had all the pros scratching their heads.
