Baco was insane enough to never have it again @ Jellystone or Neighborhood skatepark. With a superman midget, mother daughter strippers, water balloons, and riding the slides before the water was turned on, we had our last Baco. This isn't the first time we have been banned, and sure as hell not the last. I am not bummed but more or less happy that everyone came out and rode awesome and partied even harder. Baco will live on and find another location that can handle what is dished out.
We do have a location that is possible for this Halloween, an old girls scout camp. No there is no girls scouts left, but that would be a good costume. They heard the news about the Baco ban and would love to cater to our contest. They have started building already, so stay tuned.

Together with Blörn "Bommel" Mager King Kong created his signature ankleguard.
Special features are two plastic caps which are protecting your ankle and middlefoot while whipping 69wpm (whips per minute). And there is an elastic strap underneath the foot for maximum comfort while wearing.
Bommel is really happy with it and put his signature underneath. Available now.
When we faced some technical difficulties on Monday, I immediately sent an e-mail, an Instant Message and an SMS phone message to our kick ass webmaster Jos Wissink/Four05 . Usually it doesn't take long for Jos to reply and get things back to normal but this time it took a bit longer, and for good reason. Jos was in the hospital with his wife Wendy who was about to deliver a new baby. Lori Wissink was born on Monday 04 June at 14:10pm. She weighed 3400 grams at birth and was 50cm tall. All is going well. Congrats to the Wissink family.
No Clips BMX Racing Yes, No Clips BMX was back in the UK for one night only at Bournemouth on Sat 26th May on the eve of the National weekend. The scene was set and the riders ready at the newly re-vamped Bournemouth track. To give the crowd a slicker show we went with a two moto qualifying system into the next round and used the breaks to send the crowd wild with the givaways which has become traditional at Uk No Clips races, we had loads of goodies from all the sponsors and a frame set from Dialled Bikes which was given away after the final.

Q : What made you decide to want to move to America with your bike? A : Well, I grew up riding my bike and knew that the US is one of the best places to ride your bike, there is a lot of riders around and bikeparks, and bikeshops. I always thought that the US would be the best bet, and in 2003 a friend offered me a job in Dallas, TX, so after that I just decided to come.
Q : What is the best place you have ridden so far in the States?
