Answer the following question:
At FATBMX we've followed the BMX scene since the late seventies. Paul and I needed to get our hands on everything that had a BMX picture in it. More people were like that at the time but the difference is that we saved everything in an old box. Make that several boxes! Over the next couple of months we're going to dig in and show you some history. We'll show some pictures and list some quotes out of the magazines that have been collecting dust, some of them for over 25 years......
Caroline "Caro" Moussy wrote the following report about a girls only jam in England. She also wanted you to know that there is a BMX girls jam coming up this summer in Montpellier, France.
UK girlz jam, Thornaby, March 2005
The jam had been announced some time ago on BMinX.com and on WOFBMX.com, so I decided to meet some of the English female riders. In my quest, I took along the very motivated Julie who had travelled all the way from Paris and crashed at mine in Nottingham for the week end.

Vans International, Euro & UK Team Signing Session,
47 Carnaby Street, London, W1
4 - 5pm Monday 4th April
Vans are excited to announce a Vans International BMX Team signing taking place in the Vans European flagship store, 47 Carnaby Street, London, W1
Scheduled for Monday 4th April and fresh from their appearance at â€˜King Of Street’ at the Bike Show, Stoneleigh Park, Coventry, International riders taking part include :

Ryan Guettler â€“ ranked 7th overall for Vans Triple Crown of BMX
Alistair Whitton â€“ 1st place titles for both X-Games and X-Trials
Scotty Cranmer â€“ 1st place Vans Triple Crown Championship â€˜04
Racing at arena tracks week in week out wears on the current AA pros. DC's Dwayne Taylor had the idea to change things up and hold a fun race at Randy Stumpfhauser's backyard trails. The track has two lanes and a lot of effort was put into preparing the trails for the race.
With the weather being on the skeptical side, some of the SoCal riders didn't drive the 5 hours up North to meet at Stumpy's. They should have. Everything was taken care of and that includes a killer track, a DJ, free lunch, $1500 singles for the winner (by DC), champagne for the top three finishers and $250,= USD checks for fastest qualifyer and for the 2nd place finisher (courtesy of Shimano).
Finally after a year or two we have a new contact at Epitaph Records: Carolina! We will be reviewing CD's and Concerts and even give away Tickets/Merchandise/CD's/Stickers once in a while so keep on checking FATBMX.COM!Roger Miret and the Disasters: "1984"
Having a CD out named "1984" means that they are in the Punk/Hardcore scene for a long time. New York city based but born in Cuba its Roger Miret who says: "It's a very personal account of the past for me. Life stories. No Bullshit. No Gimmicks, Just reality".
