Holandský park pod názvem 040 byl nedávno kompletně přestaven a vznikla tak nová multifunkční hala Area 51. Dozvídám se o konání C1 závodu pod UCI v této hale. Nenapadá mne nic jiného než vzít kameramana do auta a vyrazit směr Eindhoven.
With 92 pages we were allowed to call this a double issue. Most 'zines at that time did not have more than 48 pages and FAT was establishing a name for itself in the underground BMX media world. Mat Hoffman made the cover and rightfully so. He had just performed a trick in Bercy that noone had seen before. A backflip on a quarterpipe! And not a low one either. Way out of the top of the Coca Cola quarter pipes. Sick! We're getting more American stuff in the 'zine so from now on the FAT issues should become more interesting for our American visitors.
Ralf Maier and FrankSchnuetgen did a Cali trip in the winter of '89/'90 and showed what it was like down there (page 28 - p33).
Vic Murphy wrote a story about the 2-HIp comp at Trend. Mark and Chris Noble sent some Cali stuff from their trip and we also had an interview with 2 Hip announcer Kevin Martin.
The other interviews in the double issue are with Klaus Dyba, Thomas Fritscher and Patrick van Wolferen. We sat on our asses too long and had collected lots of material for this one.

Brazil's BMX scene is constantly thriving and there's no shortage of fresh young talent working their way up the ranks.
