A former X Games and Gravity Games gold medallist, Murray has been a pro rider since 1999. "GT has always been the team that the best riders rode for. I'm stoked on riding for GT," said Murray. Murray's riding the new 2006 Fueler this year and will compete in the NBC Dew Action Sports Tour, The Worlds, a variety of U.K. dirt jump contests, and he'll host and hold Murray Jam '06.

BMX is not only about riding but also about having a good time. The party life has become a part of the contests and they are a good chance to talk to everyone, do some dancing and in some cases "hook up" for those who are looking for it. Tallinn wasn't a let down as far as the partying was concerned. January is a month that usually is pretty stale. It's in the middle of the winter when only a few contests take place. That makes hanging out with the BMX friends for a weekend even better.
The human evolution looks like this according to Paulo Charaba from Brasil. He might be pretty damn close. The days that it took forever to pull the first tailwhip are gone. The level is stepping up and foam pits are helping out as well. The evolution from crawling to backflip tailwhip seems just right. Just take it step by step.
January 2006 marked the day that Philip started pedaling his Z12. Okay, it's got training wheels on but give the guy a break, he just turned two. In the October editorial I did not know exactly what Philip wanted to do later on in life when he grows up, but after seeing him have so much fun on his HARO, things are looking up. It's winter now so it's tough to go outside and ride, so the living room has become the training ground for little Philip.
We love it when Pro riders do something back for the sport. Kevin Porter is organizing the Ratty Fest on 18-19 March 2006. There Cash, Prizes and Fun for amateur, Expert and Pro. Maybe not in that order but it will be figured out once the prize givings will take place.
The Ratty Fest takes place at the [url=http://www.4seasonssk8park.com]4 Seasons Skatepark[/url] in Milwaukee, WI. USA and the main sponsors are Vult, DK, FlyBikes, UGP, Empire and Dig.
The DIGBMX magazine photo gallery will be in place too.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. This goes for the rumor we heard about Sheila Love (Coach's son). Okay, Sheila does like a beer or two (or 15 - HDT!) and is a proper English boy. He goes to the pub, messes with people and sometimes gets in a fight. The other night he picked the wrong guy. First he knocked the guy down and he was out in the middle of the street. He then pulled his pants down. Haha, all fun and games. Next thing you know the bloke wakes up, go gets a butcher knife and is searching for Sheila.
