In March 2003 Martti Kuoppa and Jorge Gomez met up in Malaga (Spain) to practice flatland together. While taking a lunch break at the beach the very first idea joining together as a company came up. And the most obvious name for the company was "Kuoppa Gomez bikes", KGB. Within 2 minutes both, Kuoppa and Gomez made the decision about founding KGB and to leave their current bike sponsors. Now, two years later, we checked in with Viki and Martti on the developments of the KGB brand.
Some time has passed since you started KGB, what products have you been able to put on the market and sell to the KGB fans?

To make a perfect BMX weekend happen you basically only need a few things: Spirit, passion, dedication and heart. Exactly this is what the Rebel Bmx weekend should reflect in the first place. But sometimes you need to be a bit of a rebelâ€¦
The date of the street/dirt/mini contest is 1-3 July 2005. The place is the Mellowpark in Berlin, Germany. It's an amateur and pro contest with tons of cool prizes and 22.000 Euros in prize money for the pro classes.
More info can be found on the www.rebeljam.com website.

Grab On grips had some unique advertisements going on in the early eighties. The BMX magazine ads showed a comic style ad about the Grab On kid. Going by the drawing style we believe it was Bob Haro who did these comics. Enjoy the flashback.
FreedomBMX Bicycle Motocross magazine issue 62
Number 62 of the German BMX magazine goes a bit international with stories on the Props Megatour (with the German WeThePeople company on board) and also made it to Tallinn for the Pop!Session that took place early January. The Wizzards with flattitude is a flatland jam report and also the Whootall JAM is covered in this issue. You can count on sharp photo's from the hands of Kay Clauberg all over issue 62 including the Gallery section. The German scene has been staying busy in the winter with another jam for park riders in Wuerzburg and a Woozy jam on page 54. Want more flatland? got it. Page 56 has a report of the "Flatland fuer arme, flatland fuer beine" contest. For the rich and the poor, for the arms and the legs, or something. Lowcash is taking care of a flatland how-to on page 58 and Gregor Podlesny is demonstrating the downside whip for the park riders. You can find a bunch of products on page 62 and 64 and a cool article on the Youth of Today (not the band). Video and media reviews. Check. It's one full issue. A must for every BMX-er who speaks German.

Race classes & criteria’s

Here's a copy of a Blazer ad from an early issue of BMX Action. It shows that back in the day they used real cowboys to test BMX bikes. The little kid in the middle is all padded up because if he doesn't do his job, the whip comes out. Whap!!
It's a good thing that Terrible One (located in Austin, Texas) have not taken up the traditional way of testing bikes. Poor Ruben in the range like a torro and Taj and Joe handling the whip...... whap!!!
