It's the 12th issue of BMX World together proving that a 100% race magazine can make it and it might have something to do with that big race that is coming up next year; the Olympics. Bob Osborn wrote an article about going to the Olympics that will probably scare you off. People want to go to the Games but with 75% of the tickets being sold to the Chinese (without a possibility to transfer them) and the rest being sold to professional Olympic Package companies all over the world, your chances are slim scoring a ticket for the ultimate
Once the doors opened to the public at six, the action remained on the street course for BMX prelims. The field was divided into two heats of ten, both extremely competitve. Riders were scored in a two-run, best run counts format. In the first heat, 17-year-old Garrett Reynolds threw down a solid score of 87 in his first run. Second run he proved it was no fluke, matching his first run score. His 87 would hold through the first heat as the high score. When the next ten riders took to the course, Reynolds's score would prove tough to beat, that is, until Daniel Dhers dropped in. With his smooth and powerful style, Dhers linked together banger after banger to post an 88, and finish the day qualified in first. Local boy Morgan Wade qualified in third. His runs were so powerful, that even a fall on a giant gap to rail was barely apparent in his score.
You might not be surprised to read that Daniel Dhers qualified first in the BMX Street Prelims here in Dallas, putting him in his favorite position as he heads into Saturday's Finals event at the LG Action Sports Championships.
Dude! Looks like they're building loads of stuff for BMX-ers over in England at the moment. This is a nice movie on a newly built BMX track in Norwich that was supported by the Barclays Spaces for Sports project. The movie interviews the local council, the riders,

Home Invasion Robbery August 28th, 1995 Actual Journal Entry: “I went & bought ceramics supplies for my ceramics class. Then I got an oil change. At night, I just worked on both of my bikes in the garage. While I was out there, four guys crept up with guns pointed at me & shut the garage door behind them. Shit! They taped up my hands & feet & mouth. Then they took me inside. They took Brian Foster upstairs to find XXXX’s weed & money. He couldn’t find it. They hit Brian in the head a couple times with the gun.

Alistair Whitton sent in this photo. He didn't even have to put his bike in the sun and bring out the chalk to make a silhouette of his bike. You see, at Woodward it does rain too and after a quick downpour these dry spots appeared when the bikes were removed. Having a camera handy at that point doesn't happen a lot but Alistair got the job done and makes it to the "Comic 'n Art" page here on FATBMX.

When Freedom 78 dropped on the floor we heard a big bang. Wow, this must be the biggest issue ever! We opened up the plastic bag and noticed that it had two catalogs inside, one from Sport Import and one from La Finca. This kind of catalog distribution has become popular because you know that if someone subscribes to a magazine, he's a potential customer. Anyway, even with both catalogs removed we have some weight in our hands with the 78th Freedom issue that features Robin Fenlon on the cover. "Flat is Dead" is a T-shirt that must be in the running for T-shirt of the year together with: "That is a dope T-shirt" from T1. Lowcash show the shirt on page 7 where colleage Matti explains why flat is dead. They're both flatland riders in case you did not know.
