The etnies park in Lake Forest has limited BMX access. They're throwing a BMX contest on 12 November so save that day to ride the shit out of the park. After being denied access to the park to take pictures twice we were asked to donate prizes to the contest. We denied this time.
Anyway, if you're living in the area or have always wanted to ride the park, the Fall Classic is your day. If you forget to pre-register it's $ 25 USD to enter. Sign up starts at 8am! 25 riders maximum per class. Click the flyer for more info on the several classes and for the full address.
We are the Brookings bikers and we have been constantly kicked out of the skatepark and left with no place to ride. All we would like is a fair treatment and be allowed into the park. The most common misconception is that BMX bikes physically damage the skatepark structures. Bikes ride on rubber tires, unlike skateboards and rollerblades, which use urethane wheels. Occasionally a rider, just like a skateboarder or rollerblader, will perform a stall or grind.

There's the awesome party crew in the States that seems to be a crazy bunch. It's unbelievable they haven't gotten more press so far. FATBMX thought it was time for a change and caught up with Joe Gall. Let's bring it on! Team Young BMX, how did it all start? Team Young: It all started with a road trip to Florida one winter with Mark Flipowitz, Chris Hatfield, Matt Sivilelli, Evan Malburg, Josh Steir, and Myself (Joe Gall). The last four guys listed thought of themselves as the "young ones" and started shouting Team Young when the older dudes wanted to sleep. We were all about riding everyday, partying every night. After the trip the name stuck and eventually the website was created.
What is it that you guys do? Team Young: I guess our mission is to bring the scene together through parties and jams. We document the BMX lifestyle and bring out the positive in people.
After a hard crash in Albequerque busted up the arm of JEFFERY UPSHAW, the bones were X-rayed and set, and Upshizzle hopped on a plane back to Ohio Monday morning; rather than the scheduled drive with JASON CARNE$ to Nellis for the big NBL season opener. Back home, doctors had a look and Jeff went in for surgery Thursday morning to have 2 plates and screws put in. One of the bones had been set good and wouldn’t need any plates, while the other bone would. Jeff said he was told it would be a 4 to 6 week healing process, and that he is hoping to return in time for the NBL Christmas Classic. “I always seem to do better after some time off,” he said, “because I miss BMX so much.”
