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".
For the first time in 5 years, the Crank BMX contest will be free. This year we all hope to see you May 8th at the new skatepark Warande in Heule - Kortrijk, Belgium.
On the program we have various bands and a spine contest for AM and PRO. Overflown with a shitload of prices from our sponsors and the lovely Red Bull girls who come to keep us company you got no reason not to come. It is free, you have tons of stuff to win, you got chicks, music and did we say it is free? The fun starts around 13h.

After a 90-100 mph drive from Huntington Beach to Oceanside, it took me almost and hour or so to get to a Sunny Oceanside.. It rained just yesterday and my schedule at work hasn't really allowed me to ride in the last couple weeks, so maybe that's why I was ignoring the speed limit to finally get on my bike and have at least a good session on some ramps.
I found out about this park through my friend Mike Jarboe (artist friend and flatlander), who lives down here. So I took a mission and

Here's the March newsletter from the HARO camp:
- Brian Blyther is aboard a retro HARO Sport and likes it.
- Stefan Geisler has received a HARO flatland bike to get his flatland groove on. This way he doesn't have to change his vert bike set-up when he gets called in for a flat demo.
- Dave Mirra has been working on triple tailwhip jumps.
- The name of the new HARO tire is the Joe Dirt tire and here are the specs:
Round one of the Soulcycle XL series had some damn good riding going on. If you want to see more than just the Expert and Pro class photos that we posted earlier this week, click the following link. Bart Cautaerts from Belgium made a video clip of the (pro) action. Enjoy.

Achim Kujawski is inviting 10 vert riders and some media for a session on the indoor RedBull ramp at a secret location in Oberhausen, Germany. The fact that it is so secret has to do with the space that is left after the ramp has been installed. That space is very limited.
There will be a welcome session on Friday April 8th from around 16:00 to 18:00. Saturday is the main thing, session from 12:00 to 18:00 with a highest air around 16:30.
