Actual Journal Entry: I went to the Orange track where Mark Losey was doing a photoshoot with Neal Wood. I watched & rode a bit. Then we went by a new skatepark in Orange, but it sucked. Then we ate & came home & went to John Paul Rogers’ house & hung out & drank. They had a pretty big party for McGoo’s 34th B-day. There was ‘nuff food & drinks. They even hired a midget to hang out for the night. Funny! Later, Virginia came & we ended up leaving when the cops came & kicked everyone out & even arrested the midget. Those bastards! Virginia stayed the night at my house. Looking Back Now: Back in the mid 90’s, you could always find Losey at just about any So Cal BMX track doing photoshoots for BMX Plus magazine or for various companies. Remember, this was the mid 90’s when sponsors were pouring in from every direction. He was probably doing a photoshoot with Neal for Pro Forks or Powerbar or Arnette or Tioga or any other company that was padding up pro racers wallets at the time.

The first round of the UCI SX series just finished. Latvian One Bicycles rider Arthurs Matisons took the win beating the four Americans (Robinson, Brown, Bennett, Cisar), Willers, Jiminez Caicedo and sole Dutch finalist Arno Kanis. The indoor race was shown live on Freecaster.tv and Naran and Sergio Layos took part of the BMX dirt jump entertainment. Naran received a trophy for some reason, I guess the crowd judged the dirt jump event and double
