NEW YORK â€“ September, 2005 â€“ The Dew Action Sports Tour, the first-ever, season-long professional multi-sport tour in action sports, today announced the winner of the PlayStationÂ® Trick of the Week Award from the Toyota Challenge. Voting began after competitions at the Dew Action Sports Tour’s Toyota Challenge ended Sunday, September 11. Fans were able to view video clips and vote online at www.dewactionsportstour.com until Sunday, September 11.
Fans selected Ryan Guettler as the PlayStation Trick of the Week winner for the second consecutive event after he performed a front flip during BMX Dirt Finals. Even more spectacular is that Guettler came back from a hard fall in athlete introductions to win that very contest. Guettler leads the Dew Cup points standings in BMX Dirt and BMX Park. His front flip earned him the PlayStation Trick of the Week award after the Tour’s third stop, the VansÂ® Invitational, in Portland, Ore. this past August.
â€œIt’s amazing to win the Trick of the Week contest for the second time,â€? said Guettler. â€œWhoever is out there voting for me is super supportive and that’s the cool thing. I can’t thank them enough.â€?

Hello FATBMX visitor, Thanks for checking out the site. The updates have been keeping me busy so I use that excuse for the lack of editorials the last couple of months. It's been hard getting things done with one arm anyway. I was under the knife to have my shoulder fixed at the end of May and had my right arm in a sling at the following events: IBMXFF World's in Prague, Download Soulbowl in the UK, LG Munich, BMX Masters, LG Paris and the Rebel Jam. After that I started driving again and went to the 20 Jam, FISE, LG Barcelona, UCI World's in Paris. Then to the Garden of Vert, the FAT-JAM, Eurobike trade show and then I had great news from the doctor that I could slowly ride again. Dealing with the fact that I could not ride all summer wasn't actually that rough. It's the way it is and you have to deal with it.
A while ago Risto Kalmre sent us some Sahtel magazines. Risto is from Estonia and the magazine is in Estonian so don't count on me translating any of the text. Sahtel is a magazine that covers everything from art, snowboarding, skateboarding, BMX-ing and music. It's in full colour and 80 pages thick. If you've heard the name Risto before, that's because he organizes the annual Simple Session in Tallinn with a bunch of friends. Risto actually now lives in The Netherlands studying in Amsterdam while working on the layout of this mag and getting ready for another version of the Simpel Session this January.
If you think the people in Estonia are behind, you've been fooled. They're ahead of the game and the layout of the magazine shows it. It's good material for other art directors to see what's hot at the moment. For them, the HIND 39,- will be a good investment, even if they can't read the text.
