Fuzzy Hall, who has been a member of Team OGIO since its beginning, is stepping up his role with the company as its newly named BMX Team Manager. The announcement was made by OGIO VP of Promotions Andy Bell.
Hall, who joined the BMX circuit in 1987 and has helped shape it into the widely accepted sport it is today, will continue to compete in numerous competitions worldwide this year. He was the first rider to successfully throw a 720 in competition, at X Games X, and has been instrumental in building the sport of BMX dirt jumping into what it is today. Hall's renowned course-design skills have been compared to crafting a fine wine; even his Kaysville, Utah backyard is a riding mecca and the subject of a video game. And he is a regular fixture on magazine covers, action sport movies, and how-to riding clinics for kids of all ages.

Hope you had a better Christmas than BMX legends Mike and Eddie King as they accidently drove off a 50 ft embankment in the Yukon XL.
For those of you who may not have already heard, on Christmas morning my brother Eddy, my girlfriend Carrie, and I were in an auto accident on our way to visit my family in Arizona. My brother was driving his Yukon XL while Carrie was riding shotgun sleeping (thankfully with seat belts attached) while I was in the back bench seat (with no seat belt on) catching up on some needed sleep.
The RAD-LAME list changes any minute of the day. We came up with the following items this week but it could be a completely different list tomorrow. You see, we're on our way to Estonia for the Pop Session and a lot of things always can go wrong on a trip like this. What it is, we don't know yet but that's the beauty of packing your bags and go. Call it adventure. I'll add that to the RAD list right now.

Some news from King Kong BMX by owner Marcin Stypulkowski:
- Mark Webb from the UK is the newest teamrider from King Kong BMX. I am glad to have this guy on the team.
- An other news is that King Kong has now some baby clothes with a special King Kong Baby logo for all the BMX daddies out there. I thought it is cool to have some baby stuff since I am a daddy as well. This is maybe not the ususal BMX product, but what is usual anyway.
