-Travis Collier has just arrived in Germany and will be making his way down to the Ninja spin flat event with Frank Lukas...no doubt spinning those honda wheels of his.
- We’ve also been making some changes to the web site and now wethepeople dealers everywhere can get themselves included on the web site so kids everywhere can find them! Not only is there daily news on the site but now the potential for a huge who’s who of wtp dealers so kids the world over no longer have to read my mail that reads...”sorry but I have no idea where your nearest shop is”. The same goes for the wethepeople worldwide section, growing every day and now also seen on a few other companies web sites! Thanks to Thomas for sorting anything that involves working my ideas into the stuff I came here to get away from ...code.
-Nick Richardson is one of the incredible team we have down in Aus thanks to Clint and Chris at Triple six, alongside Pete Radivo, Nick Cooper, Nick is putting some distance between him and the damn coping and will also be putting some distance between himself and the land down under soon....I am also stoked...Nick R will be in Europe and first plans already include the barbeque right here at wtp.....the meat is already on Nick, get yerself over and the first one is one me. Nick was also on form as Dave Osato was over in Aus visiting, those guys doing box trains and I’m not sure which way round it was but there definitely some training sessions going on....is Aus Dave’s new bmx camp ? Whatever, he is now putting the time to good use with a box session (he hopes not...) with John Heaton in china......hope they (the Chinese) stocked up on rice prior to the event....'cause Dave’s a fairly stocky guy if you had to make a comparison down that neck of the woods.
-The UK tour is now certain...the dates and the spots of course not...and even if they were I might not say. Rider list is also not yet confirmed and damn it seems like I have a whole lot to sort out right now.
-Nigel Sylvester is busy right now filming almost full time for his coming part in the next Ride video.
-Vans are definitely moving in on the wtp team, Tobias Wicke, Travis Collier, Hannu Cools at one time and now they’ve picked up Clint Millar, Nigel Sylvester and another big guy on the team.
-Stephen Lilly is on Road Fools in the coming months...should be another belter.
-Steven Woodward....24/7 riding I am sure, with riders like Steven and Gary Young in the same area I’d feel tired just crossing that border.
-Dave, Stephen, Steven and Nigel should all be over at various times in Europe...Rebel jam (DE), NASS (UK) maybe FISE (FR) and I heard something about a Revoltbmx road trip....did someone shout chaos, yep, but it wasn’t me.
-Lilian Conry is now long back from Woodward but taking his place is another wtp rider...Alex Tisoni from Italy. Alex ,or Tyson as he’s known as, is one of the cool guys who helped us on the Italy tour...something we won’t forget, that’s another reason why we like to get around so much and hang out with the local scenes instead of staying in our private little hotel group.....exactly what it says on the tin.....w.e.t.h.e.p.e.o.p.l.e and nothing to do with the new US 10$ bill ...although having your name slapped accross billions of bank notes is no bad thing. Thanks to Eric for the heads up on that on, just another sound rider I met in Toronto.
BMX is fucking great.
That’s it for now.
Stay fresh. .
