We've done some wacky ads and this one isn't much better. That's what you get when you're working deep in the night to reach RIDE UK's deadline the next morning. Anyway, check it out and remember the ad when you see it in the next RIDE. We've used a few celebrities in this one so we hope they won't sue us for money. That would suck, having to pay extra to place an ad. We just want to keep reminding you on our website. Maybe you should bookmark it now and put it on your favorite list before you forget. That way you don't have to type it in all the time.
Hey Folks, on 29 and 30 October 2005 The Parano*Garage Lumberjack Contest will take place at the Skate Hall Aurich again.
This year there is also a new bowl and a new miniramp in the skate hall in Aurich, Germany. We are expecting many riders from all over Germany and the countries next to Germany.
What kind of lumberjack games we are planning this year? We won`t tell you here, but we can tell about the contest modus for the A-class this year: It`s 2 men tag-team time. The B-class will have a normal contest modus. Also: bowl-contest in jam session format.
We don't have a forum on FATBMX (too much thrash talking) but you can participate in the polls that we are putting on from time to time. We have a new one up and running and you can see the results of the old one right here:
Those riders who are living on the Northern hemisphere are feeling that the winter is coming up. In our new poll we'd like to ask you how you kill some time when it's freezing outside and the snow is coming down. Check as many boxes as you like:
Talk at events is not about BMX only any more. Since the birth of our son Philip "priorities have changed" as they say. Pics are shown, videos are played on the phone and experiences are exchanged. It's hard to understand for those who are not there (yet). Believe me, once the kid is there, you'll fit right in with those who are living the same life.
Philip was born on 26 November 2003 so he's about to become two years old.

The Props Mega Tour 5 team set up is finished.
If you want to get wasted cheap, go to the wethepeople video premiere in Cologne on 28 October. Beer is 1 Euro and the film they're going to show is the tour video from their trip to Poland. If you haven't read the tour story yet, [url=//fatbmx.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=642&PHPSESSID=1dc81b7c9fc988613e724c82168b1315]read it here,[/url] to get in the mood. We'll leave Ruudje in OJA and there won't be a band playing at the same time so all focus can be on "Dogs in the Fog," which is the name of the video. That is unless you're drunk by that time from the 1 Euro beer. Find all info by enlarging the photo of the flyer.
October, 2005 â€“ Madison, Wis. â€“ BMX Race Team Mongoose/Hyundai rider John Purse has broken THREE big records: Longest AA-Pro Career; Most Wins in a Single Season; and the biggie: Most Mains in a Lifetime.
Purse’s pro career spans an incredible 16 years. Now qualified to race Vet-Pro (though he still races AA-Pro in the ABA and Elite Men in the NBL), his 25 wins in a single season tops the charts and now, as the first rider in BMX history to break the 300-Mains barrier, (now at a whopping 308), John Purse has earned his pages in the history books.
â€œThese records came to light at the ABA Grands last year,â€? said Purse. â€œI knew I had most wins in a single season (a record he set in 1998), but these others crept up on me. I’m close to the most winning rider in BMX history: I’ve got 71 total wins now, and the record held by former GT rider Gary Ellis is at 77, so that’s the next goal.â€?
