Sometimes you see things in BMX and feel ambarrassed that it is possible to have something like that connected to our lifestyle, or sport or however you want to call what we're doing. Other times you're damn stoked on something and feel proud you're part of it. Although I've got nothing to do with Rebelyell other than delivering a messy FATBMX ad for every issue, I feel proud that BMX can deliver such a magazine. Rebelyell is class. Rebelyell is stylish. The layout is awesome and so are the photos. The style stokes me. So different, but so good. The current issue has the theme "Hands On" and I'm also down with that. Instead of complaining on the web, make stuff happen. Build some jumps, screw some wood together, simply
Red Bull is organising a big "flatland clinic" in Japan. The flyer says that they're gonna spend a whole day from 9:00 A.M to 9:00 P.M in a secret location, with the top Japanese riders to learn new tricks.Matthias Dandois: "Along with us, there will be also 50 chosen Japanese riders. We're gonna teach them how to "take their riding to the next level". It sounds like the Dragonball'z time and spirit room, and it looks already awesome to me!"

It's been years since Joe, Garret and I talked about jumping a giant hip. When we were filming for the T1 video we got the oportunity to build one and got to work really good, so good that we couldn't pedal even faster to go higher.
Since then I have been curious about how much fun will be to go faster to something like this and see what will happen. One day riding at the trails looking at this little hill next to the jumps I had the idea and I found this line going between the jumps that will give you a ton of speed and also ended in a good spot to build "The Big Hip" and with no much digging involve. The problem was that to make the landing was a lot of hard work due to it's size done by hand, and one day while digging at the trails with my good friend Sami (who used to work with digging machines) called me and told me that one of the machines was free one weeked and we could use it to make the landing...
