This weekend during the seventh edition of Flatground, the final stage of the BMX Flatland World Circuit took place in Amsterdam. It was Hiroya Morizaki from Japan who took the win of the circuit with a fifth place at Flatground. We are proud to have Hiroya Morizaki, one of the most influential flatlanders at this moment, as winner of the first World Circuit. Thanks to Freecaster.tv we could reward Hiroya Morizaki with a 1000-euro bonus.
We are working now on the calendar of next year’s circuit, which will again include: Tokyo, New Orleans and Amsterdam.

The Rebel Jam that's coming up this weekend has another photo art show planned. For many people or even for most BMX is a form of art. As the music art is part of the BMX lifestyle too. BMX photography is more than just taking a picture. Photographers are artists in their domain. But often this art never gets the attention it deserves. In a special and unique atmosphere the Rebel Jam offers some great photographers the opportunity to express themselves as such photo artists along to their BMX life.
Our favorite band Quest For Rescue (with wethepeople's Klaus Dyba) has a new album coming up. Achim Launert sent some info on the release of their new album, some download info and a flyer of their release gig in Cologne, Germany. You can listen to some new QFR songs like "Close To Me" and "Turn Around" via stream or buy them. We are looking forward to your feedback. As some of you already know, the releaseparty will take place at Gebaeude 9 in Cologne on August 18th. We will play all the new songs from "Common Grounds" and a few old ones, that we usually don't play anymore. And when the concert is over we get the party started. Some friends of us will spin some records and play us the soundtrack for chatting, drinking, dancing etc. When you're around, come on over. You will find more info here:
Visit us at MySpace and add us. You will find a lot of photos, the video clip to "Seasons" and as mentioned above the new songs.

You wouldn't believe it but we went to the Red Cross Adventure event in Hechtel, Belgium. Peter Geys and the gang of The Zonk had teamed up for a BMX/music happening in the middle of Hechtel-city.
Andreas Stevens p.k.a. dj greyboy and partner Patrick Freitas p.k.a. dj truly odd....are both hip hop dj/ producers, but also both love bmx!! 'old school' especially, and they decided that SIDEHACKS needed a revival and skateparks seemed the obvious next level. They have been having a killer time experimenting and are sharing their pics with FATBMX.
The FATBMX crew used to ride sidehacks too but that was before you were born (1978) and we're not considering a comeback like Andreas and Patrick.
