-FATBMX has added a Hyves site. It's no shocking news, but if you're on Hyves, find FATBMX and be our friend. We've only got 50 so far and according to Hyves, millions of people have profiles on it so look us up and take a look at all the FATBMX ads we've produced in the photo section. If you search well enough, you can find 4 new ones for 2011 that haven't been published yet.
-For a while the login code from out Myspace site didn't work. We didn't bother too much, as Myspace is just Myspace, but now it works again. Look us up at www.myspace.com/fatbmx
-Twitter? Sure. www.twitter.com/fatbmx
-We moved the news feed from our Facebook profile to our Facebook fan page. We maxed out on friends on the FATBMX profile (5000) but we're gaining lots of friends on the fan site (8500 so far). Thanks for your support.

-2010 EMEA Vans team:
-We did an interview with flatland legend Phil Dolan on the nose wheelie. A popular trick (on the streets) nowadays but Phil was one of the first ones working on it in 2001. Read the interview and see what he's got to say about it.
-Gary Ellis was inducted in the Cycling Hall Of Fame and rightfully so. The Lumberjack ruled BMX. Respect.
-We posted a bunch of Good, Bad and Ugly lists from riders such as Nigel Sylvester, Daniel Dhers, Jamie Bestwick, Ben Hennon, Colin MacKay, Catfish, Harry Main, Dan Norvell, Mikey Babbel, Mark Vos, Raymon van der Biezen, Mike Emde, Martijn Scherpen, Andy Zeiss, Paul de Jong, DJ, Stefan Lantschner, etc. Check them out in the Profiler section on the site. Funny stuff.
-We got a Workshop Wednesday interview up this week with none other than Robin Fenlon. Check what he's got going on by going HERE.
-We put up some bike checks recently. If it would ever be a competition (it isn't), here are the results:
Simon Moratz' FELT Bike Check: 295 views
Bart Mol's Premium Bike Check: 253 views
Camilo Monsivaiz' Mutante BC: 353 views
and the winner is: Stefan Lantschner's BC: 1366 reads.
They're all stored in the Reviews section on the FATBMX site.
-Too much pressure so it had to happen. Having fun at the flip factory.
Good weekend to all. Enjoy the ride.
