The MX GP just finished and here are the results and a bunch of pictures for those BMX-ers that care about motocross. It was actually a good race with no surprising winner in the MX 1 class (Everts) but an new winner in the MX2 class (Frenchy Christophe Pourcel). 31.000 people visited the race both days. The evening was full of drunk Germans in the beer-tent and we gave it a miss this time. I'm typing this up in the press room waiting for the biggest crowd to hit the road before starting the 6 hour drive back to Holland. Back to work tomorrow.
FATBMX is down in Teutschenthal for the unofficial FAT WHIP contest. In BMX we have the Tabletop and in Motocross they have the Whip. Perfectly performed, both tricks are the very best if you ask me, I have no problem watching a Vic Murphy tabletop and a Ronnie Renner whip all day long.
At the Karcher Grand Prix Motocross in Teutschenthal, Germany, the riders did have some time to mess about during practice. There were plenty of jumps to choose from to show their style. We managed to snap some shots and will leave it up to you which one you like best.
On April 30th Tony Hawk, Mike Vallely, Me, Bam, Ryan Dunn, and Carey Hart all took on the adventure of a lifetime. They began the 2006 Gumball 3000's race around the world in eight days.

Carey Hart's Car was detained at customs in L.A. so he got a Porche Cayanne when he got to London.

You've always traveled a bunch, but now you've taken it to the next level. How many dyas have you spent on the road in let's say, the last 12 months? Ryan: I would say at least six of the last 12 months I have been traveling. I recently moved from Pittsburgh, PA to Portland, OR and took a month to drive across the country. Also, in the fall I was gone for 3 straight months camping and riding. So that's 4 months in those two trips alone.
Okay, you do ride a bike, and are pretty good at it but we're gonna go into the travel hobby a bit here. What sort of tent do you have?
We got a tip from Stijn on this chick that rides and also started doing some modeling. That's a perfect combination for a feature on FATBMX's pin-up section. We've listed a link that will take you to a BMX related interview with her. If you read it all, you can even find her myspace site.
This is an invitation to the opening of our new spot called: "Venushügel". If you fancy riding dirt in Cologne, we will hope to see you at our spot this Saturday at 14:00hr. We're meeting at the Lidl/Aldi parking place at the Merheim Olpenerstrasse at 2pm and will then cruise over together to Venus. Don't forget to bring your bike. Petrus will give us sunshine.
If you want to check it out, call Atze Etzold for directions.
