RebelYell BMX magazine is a team made up of riders who are also photographers, writers and designers who share a thirst for BMX, travel, art, music and life. They have been in the sport for a long time and have seen BMX go through its ups and downs. So finally after a long time waiting, they have set sail to build RebelYell BMXMAG, a medium to document the very essence of riding and its many unique personalities.
The RebelYell team has set out to create a rider's magazine that tells it how it is, leaving nothing for interpretation and showing all aspects of riding and its "lifestyle". They don't see any other way of living like they do... rolling on 20's!!! The aim is to create every issue as individual as the characters that fill the pages. That is where the magazine's appearance is very important to them.

The Christmas jam is more a familly jam with all the friends who support flatland years after years. There are many reasons why you have to come to this jam: -1st Paris is butifull during December with all the lights and all the people are happy preparing for Christmas. -2nd enjoy 2 days of good riding from the morning to the night together in my nice spot. -3rd if you come you will see me riding with the Santa Claus suit. -4th if you win one of the contests that we will organize (funky,jungler,wiplash.........) you will for sure go back home with a lot of chocolate.
Sean Logan has just picked up this new energy drink sponsor called Liquid Blow. The owner is really psyched on bmx and wanted to put together a team, so we just recruted James Foster and Dylan Stark to be on the team.
Liquid Blow is also going to be co-sponsoring the E-21 clothing team.
We are the Brookings bikers and we have been constantly kicked out of the skatepark and left with no place to ride. All we would like is a fair treatment and be allowed into the park. The most common misconception is that BMX bikes physically damage the skatepark structures. Bikes ride on rubber tires, unlike skateboards and rollerblades, which use urethane wheels. Occasionally a rider, just like a skateboarder or rollerblader, will perform a stall or grind.
MADISON, Wis. – November, 2006 – The 2006 BMX Vert competition season came to an end on Sunday, Oct. 29 with the LG World Championships held in Dallas Texas at the Reunion Arena. For Mongoose Vert pro Simon Tabron, it closed another chapter of success and dedication to the sport he loves. Simon was still a bit sore from the knee/ankle/foot injuries from Florida two weeks earlier but he soon forgot about the pain as he soared over the comp’s massive 14.5’ vert ramp. Tabron qualified in 2nd place for the finals, confirming to himself that he'd recovered enough from his injuries to have some fun in the finals.
“After putting a really clean first run together, I found myself in 2nd place behind Chad Kagy with one chance left to change things around,” said Tabron. “For run two I decided to try a 900 straight into another 900. It's been an ambition of mine for a while but it’s basically impossible! I spun the first 900 at about nine feet, hoping to land smooth enough to keep speed for a second but it just wasn't quite enough and I had to settle for 2nd place! Still, it was the biggest 900 I had ever done!”

Florian Sailer has been keeping us informed on the Battle In Da Club flatland series. he reports that the new tag team mode works quite good. Chris Böhm and Dan Hennig where the tag team winners. The final tag team battle between team Matti Röse and Frank Lukas against Chris Böhm and Dan Hennig was really awesome. Both teams battled so hard and at the end Chris and Dan had little more points to take the victory. It was really close!

The etnies park in Lake Forest has limited BMX access. They're throwing a BMX contest on 12 November so save that day to ride the shit out of the park. After being denied access to the park to take pictures twice we were asked to donate prizes to the contest. We denied this time.
Anyway, if you're living in the area or have always wanted to ride the park, the Fall Classic is your day. If you forget to pre-register it's $ 25 USD to enter. Sign up starts at 8am! 25 riders maximum per class. Click the flyer for more info on the several classes and for the full address.
