-Paulie Lange is back to racing after breaking some ribs a few weeks ago, 2nd and a 3rd in Desoto, TX last weekend. Next up for Paulie is the ABA Worlds in Ontario, CA then leaving straight for France for the "real" UCI Worlds in France. Paulie is a AA Pro racer but like to ride the streets, today's pic is of Paulie hitting the streets of Sacramento with a crazy curved wall ride. Photo is by Matt Faulk, Matt is a BMX racer on Felt's flow team but has a broken wrist and has taken up shooting photos while he heals.

Scotty is home for two days then goes to the Gravity Games which are at FDR in Philadelphia, PA this year.
Scotty has been getting some good coverage in the magazines lately. August issue if Ride USA has good pictures from a road trip he did for a Mirra video and July Ride UK has a good write up about the BIKE 2005 contest in England. Speaking of Ride UK, check out their [url=http://www.ridebmxmag.co.uk/] website[/url] and find the screen saver downloads for a good front flipping Scotty pic.
Scotty got an invite to the X-Games this year, this is a huge deal because X-Games is invite only and the only 10 riders get to go. BMX Park will be at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles, August 4-7th
-The riders in Europe have been busy with contests lately and Felt riders are putting in some good rides. Chris Mahoney placed 6th at he BMX Masters in Cologne, Germany and Mark Webb placed 4th at the BMX Worlds a few weeks back. NASS and Urban games are coming up in the UK over the next few weeks.
That's all for now, I'm off to Denver with Scotty for the Dew Tour and will be back next week with an update. Remember to check out NBC this Saturday.
