We don't have a forum on FATBMX (too much thrash talking) but you can participate in the polls that we are putting on from time to time. We have a new one up and running and you can see the results of the old one right here:
Those riders who are living on the Northern hemisphere are feeling that the winter is coming up. In our new poll we'd like to ask you how you kill some time when it's freezing outside and the snow is coming down. Check as many boxes as you like:
JT Freestyle comes through with three pin-up pics. Instead of giving away all three, we're going to show one now , one tomorrow and one on Friday. They're all taken in Vegas in the week of Interbike/Nora Cup/Vans Let it Ride jam. Enjoy...
If BMX racing is your thing you're probably aware of the "BMXer" that comes out every month (except for February). The BMXer is the official paper from the ABA and is being sent out to all members of the ABA. It's possible to subscribe for $ 26,= USD but that probably only counts for people living in the USA.
The September issue that we picked up at Interbike (it's the Interbike issue) has 152 pages of BMX racing reports, news, race schedules, ads and results. The Nationals that are covered are: Land o' Lakes in Minnesota, the Westshore Nationals in Canada, the New England Nationals in Rhode Island and the Mile High Nationals in Colorado. Also a race report from the ABA "World Championships" can be found on page 32. The paper inside is more like newspaper quality, the type that gives you black fingers. The cover is glossy full colour and sports Bubba Harris with the #1 plate.
Talk at events is not about BMX only any more. Since the birth of our son Philip "priorities have changed" as they say. Pics are shown, videos are played on the phone and experiences are exchanged. It's hard to understand for those who are not there (yet). Believe me, once the kid is there, you'll fit right in with those who are living the same life.
Philip was born on 26 November 2003 so he's about to become two years old.
The ever relaxed looking Corey Martinez gets the cover with a topside no-foot cancan on his Bronze Federal. Justin Simpson shows he's got balls doing the manual that he does on the contents page. The Inside Scoop is always full of gossip and BMX news. We'll list some of the people who are celebrating their B-day in November:
Jay Miron (November 3rd), Rick Thorne (11th), Simon Tabron (17th) and Nathan Penonzek (18th). Now send these guys an electronic B-day card and they'll wonder how the hell you know it's their B-day. They get a bag full of mail every month at BMX Plus! and some of them are answered by the staff or the BMXperts. The Nostalgia photo sure is old school. Blyther, Dominguez and Anderson all in the air at the same time on the Camarillo ramp. Okay, you're a pretty advanced street rider but would like to learn a 180 to 180 off, on a rail. Ian Munro shows you how. There's a HARO 06 (Nyquist three) bike test in the November issue. The ABA puts on a "World's" of their own in California and you can find a race report from page 26-35.
Cast: Robin Fenlon, Sebastian Keep, Alistair Whitton, Owain Clegg, Caleb Kilby and Chris Souter.

One week on the road in the UK.What was the reason behind the tour, making a DVD or actually doing the trip? The reason behind the tour was for all 6 of us to meet up and spend a week riding together, most of us live at opposite ends of the country and Alistair lives in America so it's pretty rare for us all to just have a week together. We decided that a free DVD that comes with Ride would be a good way of getting the DVD out there so instead of getting 1000 made and selling them for Â£20 each we got over 20000 made and gave it away. Everybody's happy!
Can people buy the DVD or was it a one-off with RIDE magazine? The dvd was exclusively with Ride UK magazine.
