Pictures are coming through of Dave Osato's capture.
Contrary to popular belief, Mr Osato's regular residence is not a sprawling mansion in the Canadian mountains but is actually Mr and Mrs Warrals conservatory. A retired couples home in Berkshire, England.
Dave thought it was the perfect place to hide, with nobody under the age of 50 living in Berkshire.
Surprisingly, this was his downfall. It wasn't long before several pseudo
art enthusiasts from Dig magazine came through the small town to visit a museum and a rusty pipe in the middle of a farmers field. Bam, Dave was caught buying ice-pops at the local Spar when they stopped in for
semi-permanent black hair dye and AAA batteries.
On Saturday evening, Cory Muth (Axis Media / DK), Ron Bonner (Shadow/UGP), and I were on our way to downtown Cincinnati. We had all had a few beers. I probably should not have been driving.
The quickest route downtown is through the roughest neighborhood in the Cincy area. The scenery in the ghetto is always pretty interesting. You’ll notice prostitutes and crack deals if you’re paying attention. I’m rarely surprised by what I see there. Saturday night was an exception. While driving down the major thoroughfare towards the center of the city, we passed a guy on a bike, fully decked out in vintage BMX gear. It was as if the world stopped for him in the mid 80’s. Ron was on his cell phone and didn’t notice the guy. Cory and I just started screaming, in disbelief. I busted a u-turn as quickly as possible, so that we could catch this guy and find out what his story was.
We here at KGB decided to drop the distributors and shops that carry KGB products. Why? The answer is very simple; We want to lower the prices of our products as low as possible so all the flatlanders around the world can afford good quality flatland products.

10 - 11 - 12 June will be a loud weekend at the Donnington Park in England. The Download festival is setting up camp at the race circuit. Ozzy will be there, Slayer, Motorhead, Anthrax, System of a down, Helmet, Therapy?, Velvet Revolver and a bunch of other rocking bands.
Next to that, the Snickers Bowl will be set up for a BMX and skate contest. Matt Hoffman is flying in (literally! with his new transportable backpack propellor parachute) to do some demos (on the bike, not with the propellor thing). The riders battling for the high air, annual manual and contest purse are:
The BMX schedule is busy this summer. Vert rider Simon Tabron flew to the USA a weekend prior to the Worlds and won his first MSS contest. Here's a press release and the results of the vert comp.
British BMX rider Simon Tabron, one of the most accomplished riders in BMX history, showed up for his first MSS competition and promptly proceeded to pull a trick that’s never been landed in MSS history and earn top honors on the day in the process. The veteran rider astonished fans by landing a 900, an accomplishment only a few riders in the entire world can claim. Chicago rider Jimmy Walker earned the silver medal, while Jay Eggleston took the bronze medal, despite a nasty-looking crash left the Denver rider seeing stars for a few minutes.

Not everyone had seen Koji Kraft ride miniramp before but if you know his style, it's trick after trick after trick until he crashes down. Koji stayed up long enough to impress everyone including the judges.
