Like last year Matti Roese sent us a flyer of the 2006 Berlin City Games flatland contest. The date will be Saturday 9 december 2006. There will be a PRO / Amateur flatland contest with 5000 Euro price money for the pros and prizes for the amateurs. The aftershow party will be taking place at the same location (Parochial Kirche - Klosterstr., Berlin, Germany).
The wait is nearly over, the Backyard Jam is only two days away now! For those of you who can't wait, here is a sneak peek at the street course, designed by Nate Wessell, which Nate and his team are currently building, as we speak! at the ICE Arena in Sheffield. FATBMX will have Craig Tull present to take photos of the Backyard jam so expect some photos and results after the weekend.

The following riders found themselves to build the tag teams for round 3 of Battle in da Club tour, Germany’s first and sole Bmx Flatland tour. The riders were allowed to choose a companion but one rule is that the teams can't enter a battle in the same constellation two times in a row with the exception of the winning team. So we don't see the same teams twice in series. Let the battles begin.
The 8 two-man teams are: 1 Frank Lukas & Matti Röse 2 Waldemar Fatkin & Lasse Süttning
If there is a true BMX nomad, it's Nathan Penonzek. He is on a constant travel and has seen more of the world than pretty much any of us. The pro flatlander has been documenting most of it. Some of the photos and text can be found on the website that he just started. Well worth a look.
Flatland There are many reasons to share, and flatland has always been the best one, from ideas and thoughts, to foods and cultures, flatland is expression.
verthaus jam #2 went down this weekend. The crew - Jean-Marie Bärtsch, Sven Kabosch, Shaun Eglington, Matt Fairbairn, Tim Eichert, Alex Etzold, Benni Kopp, Peter Geys and Eduardo Terreros - came over to Oberhausen to shred the ramp and work on their bowling skills as well. If you like a fun session with pushing each other - the verthaus jam it is. No first place, just the best out of every one. Sven pulled his first whip, Tim was going for a nine that he span all the way but couldn't roll out, Jean-Marie was using every inch of the ramp, Alex with an endless list of liptricks, Peter just came back from a shoulder injury and it was great to see him back on the ramp, Shaun was going high and smooth with some back to back moves, Benni came in late but put together some amazing runes at height, Matt was the first one on the ramp and seven hours later the last one standing - no idea where he takes the juice from - he did pretty much every barspin variation you can ask for and unbelievable big and smooth 540s. The Spanish Fly once again showed his smooth style
Yep. Dave Osato is now going to take on the team management of the US wethepeople team. A tricky job at the best of times, but as the wethepeople US team has seen some recent additions it was time to bring things together and Dave is more than man enough to take it. Doing what he's always done for wethepeople, 'Promoting wethepeople as it has never been done before' was his take on the new role. We're stoked on the whole idea and with the current team now taking on business, things are serious. Feel free to heckle the dude for your news and the latest with the wethepeople US guys.
