On 3rd of November the Battle in da Club tour, Germany’s first and sole Bmx Flatland run, is going to take place in Nurenberg. The location is Nurenberg’s most fantastic and trendy club, the Mach 1. Round number 3 of the BidC is presenting itself in a completely new shape and is filled with innovative ideas. Now a selection of only 16 of the best German and Austrian riders are invited to battle for a 2000€ trophy money. The 16 invited participants have the possibility to predefine a companion for the challenge. That means that the riders have to register in teams of two, the so called “tag teams”. Consequently, there are eight teams of two, competing in four battles by lot.
The better team of a “duel” reaches the next round. In round two there are four teams and two battles remaining. After this the final battle is already fix. Two teams are struggling for the ultimate victory. After one of the teams was able to win, there will be a one -on- one finale between the members of the winner- team.
- October, 2006 - The Dew Action Sports Tour, the pro tour of action sports, today wrapped up its final day of competition for the 2006 season at PlayStation® Pro, the fifth and final stop of the Tour, at the TD Waterhouse Centre. Daniel Dhers captured the BMX Park title. Dhers, 21, of Caracas, VEN, placed first at the PlayStationâ Pro with a score of 96.75 to clinch the Tour title. Marcus Tooker, 20, of Cape Cod finished in second with a 90.75 after a tiebreaker, followed by Alistair Whitton, 25, of Great Britain who also earned a 90.75.
“It feels awesome to win the Dew Cup,” said Dhers. “I trained a lot and practiced to make the Dew Action Sports Tour. This is unbelievable. I’m living a dream.” Dhers finished the season with a total of 389 points. Scotty Cranmer, 19, of Jackson, NJ finished with 330 points, followed by Ryan Nyquist, 27, of Los Gatos, Calif., with 319.

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.
We've split them up for you. Here are the vert shots by Andrew.
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.

Jamie Bestwick is sitting in the lead of the Dew Tour series but it was Chad Kagy who beat Jamie in qualifying. Simon Tabron has not released his 900 in Orlando yet and we all know that Kevin Robinson has a few bangers up his sleeve. All four riders want it bad and with Orlando being the last round of the Dew tour series, it's about to be a killer final.

I, Chris San Agustin, spent three months in Thailand, being this was my second trip there I knew what to expect. This would be the first time on my bike and I was lucky enough to meet the right people and session some really sick spots. Thailand is amazing...from the smell of the streets to the beads of sweat that consume your flesh 24 hours a day. Here are a few pics to give you a taste of what I experienced...
