The 2006 Pop! session in Tallinn was a nice one. We reported from Estonia earlier this year. Now the organization sent us a report and we thought we'd just put it up as well. It's got some nice pics. More Estonia for y'all.
Thrilling Pop! Session contest in Tallinn, Estonia
The 6th BMX and skateboarding competition Pop! Session 2006: Winter Bash was held on 6th - 8th of January 2006 at the Saku Arena. Pop! Session weekend contained much more than the contest - three full days of BMX and skateboard at its best. Besides parties, there were also four movie premiers in the cinemas of Tallinn. Bigger skatepark than ever was accompanied by professional live broadcast on big screen which this year was also broadcasted entirely live in internet. So besides 12.000 spectators in Saku Arena people around the globe were watching the event.
The Psykopath crew up in NorCal are an enthusiastic bunch of BMX-ers. They support a great group of riders and just received their 2006 model Race and Street/Dirt frames.
Zack Held makes a funny face and holds the prototype race frame while Nick Valencia takes it cool with the prototype street/dirt frame in his hands. So nice to see the first batch in real life. They're being tested right now.
Eastreet and Big Beach clothing are organizing a big photography contest in March. This contest is basic and here's how it works: - You ask for a sticker on our contest webpage. - You receive the sticker. - You stick it in an original spot. - You take a photograph. - The best photographs win.
Of course it's world famous Dick Slater!!! There's only one real Dick on the vert ramp doing 900-s at hardcore concerts. He lives the life in a tour bus playing Grand Theft Auto playing CJ until he says: "Take that, bitch!"
If you guessed it right, pump your fist in the air three times now and scream Dick Slater rules!
It's Friday, it's time for Crazy Party. You might even run into Dick tonight. Buy him a drink and take a snapshot for FATBMX.
Okay, here's photo number four of FATBMX's mystery guest. Hey, we're spending time on the road and it's tough to upload new stuff every day. You've probably noticed. Back to our contest (for personal satisfaction). Those who play the BMX Trivia Game on the road a lot should have an advantage. We'll give you some important info: -Male -Vert rider -Likes to party -Is a rock star -Rides in the USA as well as Europe
Here's a challenge for you. This week we're going to post 5 pictures and it's up to you to guess who it is. Every day will get a photo that is closer to the final picture. On TV you can win prizes with similar contests but here at FATBMX you can win nothing! Great! It's a personal challenge for everyone out there. At step one we're not going to give away any hints but we'll add info to every photo for the rest of the week.
Aneta Hladikova, Elite Woman from Czech Republic, broke her wrist at round 5 of the European Indoor Championship in Zwolle, Holland. While leading she hit a jump with her front wheel and landed on her wrist. In 2 weeks Aneta may get plates in her wrist to reconstruct the complicated fracture.
Aneta had just signed a 3 year contract with the ONE KENDA BMX racing team. She’s a former World Champion and is the 2005 European number 2 and World number 4 in 20” Elite Women.
We hope Aneta will recover soon and can get back to what she loves most: BMX.
