FELT BMX NEWS by Alan Foster
Scotty Cranmer has been riding non-stop all winter and his tricks are getting crazier and crazier. Back flip double whips, front flip variations, switch footed stuff plus much more. Check out the May 05 issue of Ride USA for a Fox poster showing a front flip turndown... If Scotty is not at the Incline Club he is usually busy with his new non-bike riding pass time of paintballing. Speaking of Incline Club, it got a face lift a few weeks ago and I have heard a lot of good things about it.
March gets pretty busy with a Panasonic commercial deal in LA, a Fox photoshoot in Greenville, NC , then going over to England for Bike 2005 at the end of the month. He had plans of hitting Metro Jam last weekend but rolled his ankle two days before and decided to sit it out. Speaking of injuries:
Todd Walkowiak had wrist surgery for a nagging wrist that will put him down for a few weeks. To pass the time he drove down to watch the Daytona 500 and get out of the cold in Pittsburgh. Speaking of injuries:
Paulie Lange had a bad crash at ABA Reno and ruptured his spleen. He stayed at a Reno hospital for a few days and they ended up letting the spleen heal and not taking it out. He went to the muddy Phoenix race to hang out and his first race back is next week at ABA Washington.
