We get requests for FATBMX press passes on a regular basis. We're okay with that as long as we can get a decent report and photos back from the person who requested the pass to the event that we cannot attend ourselves. Some passes we've given to girls who did not come across and just wanted to get closer to "the guys". Won't happen again.
Andrew Bershaw of AB Digital Photography went the Playstation Pro Dew Tour finals in Florida for us last weekend and came across with a good selection of awesome photos.

Pro Park qualifying went down in Orlando on the 14th and this is how it looks. Finals coming up tomorrow and with all the new talent mixed with veterans like Ryan Nyquist and Dave Mirra, it should be a good one.
