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€?
