Last year Fly Bikes' owner David Quesada closed his office and started running FlyBikes from the road. Spending time on the bike and directly with the riders was the best way to get feedback and work on new products. With the help of Alvaro's camper the Fly Bikes team spent some serious time on the road. Then when the winter arrived, the crew flew over to New-Zealand to do some filming and lots of riding. With the help of a laptop computer and internet access, you can work from anywhere, even from the NZ beach. In the picture you see David taking a break and getting his surf on. Now throw a shakka!

The cat is out of the bag. Mark Losey is spending his last day today at the RIDEBMX offices in Tustin, California. Mark is leaving on good terms with everyone there and will still be contributing to the magazine from time to time but the day-to-day job as editor is over. Mark's wife got a good job opportunity in North Carolina so they are packing up with their son Ethan and will move to the Raleigh area, an hour and thirty minutes from Greenville.
Mark will be sadly missed at the international contests where we got to hang out a couple of times a year and always had a good time. Take care my friend. Keith Mulligan is taking over Mark's duty at RIDEBMX.

Round two of the Soul Cycle XL series went down last weekend and good times were in effect. Barry Kohne and Dwayne BMXigan Verkade were at it again. Here’s a little round up of everything you missed out on.
Since Zaandam is not located anywhere near the German and Belgian border, less foreign riders showed up. Considering this, it was great to see riders such as Markus Wilke, Paddy Gross, Sergei Geyer, little ripper Bruno Hoffman and of course Hannu Cools make the trip to the old Bruynzeel factory. Also good to see Vladdie de Koning representing NBR/ Zeeland. Dutch riders were in effect as well, even though a lot were hurt. Barry is still healing up after his handplant gone bad in Heerlen, along with a few others.

They now have and Ryan is back on board. After Split dropped their US team, Ryan seems to have found a clothing sponsor in Hurley.

Premium Product's Josh Harrington actually rode the Metro jam finals with a messed up knee. The victory released the pain for a bit but it came back unwanted. Here's the 411:
Josh Harrington: "I tore my pcl, strained my mcl, acl and something else I cant remember according to the MRI that I had to wait 8 days to get results on. I do not need surgery which makes me very happy. The doctor said I was super close to tearing more ligaments which would send me straight under a big knife! I got lucky. I had to get the fluid
