If there is a will, there is a way. MTNT Bikes started out of BMX passion. Doing a BMX company in a country like Mexico isn't an easy task but if you stick to it and you are having fun, you can get really far. We sent MTNT's Alex Vazquez some questions and he explains everything you need to know about the Mexican BMX company.
When did MTNT start? 1986 was the year I started riding BMX, I was 15 years old, and it was so dificult to see and get BMX quality parts over here, let alone paying the price. My father had a small tool work shop, and in the same year I started making gyros, pegs and stems, just for my own use, then my friends were asking for them, it was so funny, cause every part was made by hand and actually was like a child game.

Action moved to the vert ramp for the BMX Vert Finals at the LG Action SPorts Championships in Dallas. Thirteen riders took two runs each -- the larger field was due to no pre qualifier—but the day was all about Jamie Bestwick. Big air and big tricks earned him his 4th Action Sports Championship title. In second Simon Tabron nailed a big 900, and Chad Kagy scored third, despite a crash that ended his day early.
BMX madness will be going down next weekend with the second stop of Banksgiving. The 6.0 crew have been busy all week, adding to the existing features at Ben Snowden’s house, to build a never-been-ridden-before backyard paradise. We invite anyone and everyone to come out, session the new creation with the Nike 6.0 BMX team, and enjoy a heaping feast of food and free swag.
Come on out and celebrate your love for BMX. It’s gonna be good.

Too many BMX contests (in South Africa) have become stale, overdone replays of the same old thing for too long...riders are tired of the 'same old same old' and the judges are just the same- 'same-old same-old'. Time for a change! Truckloads of pallets, scrap wood, bikes, friends and good times is what the Ghetto Jam weekend is all about. On the Friday morning before the Jam you can show up and help construct whatever Ghetto ramp setup you want build to add to the existing skate park. Grab a hammer, pallet and some nails- and a buddy and you on your way. You know it's gotta be fun building something you want to ride with your mates the day before a stress free, mellow-style Jam contest. As for the event itself riders are judged by the riders who enter; Am's choose the Pro's who they think stood out and Pro's choose the Am's who they think should be winners. You know it's going to be loads of fun, killer riding and good times for all. See video's, gallery and more from last years Ghetto Jam here
The BMX street finals proved to be one of the highlights of the second day of the LG Action SPorts championships. It was not a runaway for Daniel Dhers like many had predicted, as he had some stiff competition. In his second run, local boy Morgan Wade threw down a flawless run, using the entire course and including several dangerous high speed transfers.
The Dutch Olympic Committee nominated the following BMX racers for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China: Robert de Wilde, Willy Kanis, Raymond van der Biezen, Rob van den Wildenberg and Martijn Scherpen. The racers need to show form by making a top 32 result at the 2008 UCi BMX World's in China or at one of the UCi World Cups. Hup Holland Hup!
The Mellowpark in Germany was host of the Rebel Jam over the last couple of years. The venue is amazing but they're fighting the city to stay alive. Fingers crossed. Ben Fenner filmed a clip with Gregor Podlesney on the street course in Berlin.
