After 14 years with etnies the time has come to move on. In late 1993 I sent etnies a sponsor-me video, half of which was footage from the video "Dirty Deeds". Surprisingly I got a phone call back from Don Brown, I wasn't really expecting one because etnies at the time was a skate only company. A few days later I headed down to their offices and picked up a package. I had my first real sponsor. I was 16 years old. By the time 1996 rolled around I had convinced them to give me a budget to start a BMX program. I asked most of the guys to ride for etnies at the South Padre X Trials contest.

You would think that this time of the year we could kick back, relax and enjoy a bit of downtime but that's not the case. Week two had loads going on again and here's a bit of a summary: -We received the following old school photo (pictured on the right) and to be honest couldn't figure out who the riders were. Tight jeans, wide bars and Nike shoes. Were they ahead of their time? We know now who they are but we're not going to tell you until next week. Yup, that looks like Romford skatepark doesn't it? That's a start.

The new issue of DIG dropped on the doormap earlier this week. It left a big noise when it fell on the ground. Issue # 62 is heavy and no, it doesn't have a 48 page bicycle catalog in the middle. Mike Aitken is feature in this issue and we're okay with that. He's got the cover, the TOC, a 14 page interview and 2 pages where they're giving away his signature frame, parts and clothing. Too much of Mikey? Never! And with 148 pages of BMX, there's plenty left for other articles. There's a feature on the unfortunate Jimmy Levan who woke up from a 15 day coma and lost some memory. Received an e-mail back from him the other day telling me it's time to come to Europe again so he's on the better hand now. He can still use your support to pay for the hospital bills though. The short little articles before the Aiken interview starts range from sotries of Mat Hoffman about Evel Knievel, Greg Walsh on Nowhere Fast, the RedBull ghetto comp,
Anthony is 19 years old and hails from Liverpool, England. Watkinson has made some big moves in 2007 and is looking to take that momentum into 2008. His incredible style and wild tricks like inverts to tailwhips make his riding so enjoyable to watch. Anthony plans on hitting the AST Dew Tour circuit in addition to most of the European contests this year. Watkinson will be attending the first big contest of the year- Simpel Session in Tallinn, Estonia on January 25th-27th.
DK Team Manager Catfish had this to say: "I am super excited to have Anthony aka “Mousey” on DK. He came to the U.S.and lived with me for a couple months and he is just an amazing person. His riding is just as amazing. He’s got some big contest wins under his belt and I’m sure that is just the beginning. Not to mention he’s notorious for jaw dropping web videos. I am also really psyched on the fact that he lives in England. It’s been a while since DK had an English rider on board and now I am stoked to have one of the UK’s finest now
