SNICKERS is back for its third year at Download, the only UK festival to showcase BMX, skate and live rock music at one event. SNICKERS announces further details of its skate and BMX schedule with the introduction of SNICKERS UK FRIDAY at the SNICKERS BOWL. Taking place on day one of the Donnington event (Friday 9th June), SNICKERS UK Friday provides a platform for British BMX talent and a chance for UK athletes to ride the awesome SNICKERS BOWL, previously open to invited international pros only. The size of an Olympic swimming pool but twice as deep – this hugely anticipated and unmissable structure comes to the UK just once a year.
The best-established British riders and next generation of UK talent will come together as thirteen riders compete in this invitation only jam.

Hmm, you're not living in a particular BMX mecca. Where do you ride on a regular basis? Anthony: Well I currently live at Woodward camp, so when I wake up everyday I can choose from about 10 different skateparks to ride at, but usually I ride lot 8, the rock and the 7ft mini ramp at outdoor street on a daily basis.
Woodward seems like a place that helped you progress. What's your favorite part of the camp? Anthony: Woodward definitely was a big part in my progression over the past year. My favorite part of the camp is the variety and diversity in ramps all over the camp.
Writing reviews is a tough task. You don't want to piss the makers off who have spent months getting the thing produced but it's no use either to praise every production so you lose track of what's good, and what's not. We like to give fair reviews to every DVD we get sent. We also apologize if the reviews take a while before they're up. It's simply how things go sometimes. Transcend is a production of Ty Stuyvesant & Steve Machuga who spent over a year to collect all the footage and then edited it to this very DVD. It has basically 14 rider sections with some freestyle skiing thrown in for (good) measure. Riders include Sean Burns, Anthony Napolitan, Ryan Worcester, Dennis McCoy, Jamie Bestwick, Seth Holton, Steve Machuga, Harrison Boyce, Nick Halsey, Dan Montgomery and more. Each of them have a section with one better than the other but with this group of riders you are guaranteed to have some quality riding going on. Harrison Boyce and Nick Halsey impressed me with their part and so did Ryan Worcester.
They hail from Devon, they live to ride, and they go under the name of ‘the moVment’. Notorious to Devon, these local BMX’ers are hosting their third annual ‘moVment Jam’ on 27th and 28th May, at local Decoy Park, with an opportunity for any amateur riders to come along and take part, or simply watch the event unfold. It all started in 2003, when a small group of likeminded BMX’ers from Newton Abbot came together to create a low key BMX jam in response to their local trails being closed. Following an unprecedented response from the local community, Teignbridge Council resolved to work alongside the BMX enthusiasts to help respond to health and safety concerns, and support their dreams for a better facility ... and so the Movement Jam was born!
Now in its third year, and charging £5 to compete, proceeds from the Jam will go towards “The Decoy Misfits BMX Dirt Club” - a local skate/bmx park for the whole community and with a recent injection of £5,000 from the National Lottery fund and support from the local council, the target of £100,000 is beginning to look very possible.
What a difference it makes. It's been sunny for two days and I can ride again. Your outlook on life changes because of it. Psyched. Here's a quick review of the June issue of BMX Plus! that has Danny Hickerson on the cover doing an incredible rail ride up 6 stairs to no-hander. Damn!Chad de Groot knows how to score photos. He pulls out his flatland bike for a double page contents spread. Allan Cooke is seriously nuts. See his helicopter stunt. SE scores some good coverage with Postany getting the poster and Gerber getting an Inside the Pros Bikes article. Also Steve Cuesta gets a pro bike check and for those who forgot about Thomas Hancock, he's still around, simply read his interview. Mike Day and Bubba Harris both scored a #1 title in 2005. There's a one-on-one with the two fast racers. Kip Lekker waves to the camera for a full page shot on page 76. Also full page moving pictures go to Biz, Will Love, Brumlow, Johnny Devlin and Eddie Hernandez. Yup, Plus! likes to give coverage to those who deserve it.
