Last weekend in İstanbul both sides of the Bosphorus witnessed a great BMX competition organized by Redbull and hosted by Redbull BMX rider Bora Altintas, who was alao the idea giver for the event. The competition took place on a ferryboat in the middle of the Bosphorus. Two teams each representing one side of the Bosphorus competed against each other.
A skatepark was created by Cinoskatepark on the ferry boat itself. Each team had 6 BMX riders , either riding for the Asian or European side. The competition was very challenging due to the weather conditions as the wind was very strong and the ferry had to take some serious waves, making it very

The Kalk Trails Jam was a blast! Shoutout to Michael Hanfler and Paul Thölen for all their hard working, resulting in some crazy-ass jumps. I mean, look at those things. They're freaking huge! Not to mention how perfectly shaped they are. True works of art! Thanks for an amazing day full of nerves giggles and mucho airtime in Cologne, Germany.
Daily newspapers are still alive. The tradition of a newspaper dropping on the doormat every morning hasn't disappeared now that the news spreads quicker via the internet. A BMX newspaper existed in the early '80s. It came out every week. That shows how big BMX was in the early stages when everyone and their cousin had a BMX bike. The British pubication called BMX Weekly (we still have a coupe) turned into BMX Bi-Weekly soon after and then disappeared altogether when BMX magazines came to life. Seeing a BMX newspaper 43 years later came as a bit of a surprise. It's not going to be daily, weekly, or bi-weekly, it's more of a 1-off published by the folks at DIG and focused on the Glasgow area. It came out during the week of the UCI Cycling World Championships in August but I only got to read the entire paper on the way back from Chile a few weeks ago.
How cool would it be to have a BMX Newspaper dropping on the floor every morning. One that has good interviews, the results of the BMX races and competitions, an activity list, how-to's, new product reviews, a calendar, industry section, kids corner, and spot checks. It would take a lot of effort to get it done. That's why current newspaper subscriptions aren't free either. To fill the paper on a daily basis, just imagine how much work goes into that.
