The MX GP just finished and here are the results and a bunch of pictures for those BMX-ers that care about motocross. It was actually a good race with no surprising winner in the MX 1 class (Everts) but an new winner in the MX2 class (Frenchy Christophe Pourcel). 31.000 people visited the race both days. The evening was full of drunk Germans in the beer-tent and we gave it a miss this time. I'm typing this up in the press room waiting for the biggest crowd to hit the road before starting the 6 hour drive back to Holland. Back to work tomorrow.
FATBMX is down in Teutschenthal for the unofficial FAT WHIP contest. In BMX we have the Tabletop and in Motocross they have the Whip. Perfectly performed, both tricks are the very best if you ask me, I have no problem watching a Vic Murphy tabletop and a Ronnie Renner whip all day long.
At the Karcher Grand Prix Motocross in Teutschenthal, Germany, the riders did have some time to mess about during practice. There were plenty of jumps to choose from to show their style. We managed to snap some shots and will leave it up to you which one you like best.

Important notes for 2006 BMX UCI World Championships in Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 28-31, 2006:
The second annual DC Sprint trails race took place over the weekend at Randy Stumpfhauser's backyard in California. A bunch of pros showed up to race one-on-one in sunny conditions. The 10 second girl was a nice addition to the race that was held on a well groomed trail track. Last year's winner Randy Stumpfhauser was once again the man to beat and everyone, including Robert de Wilde, failed to eliminate the new daddy. Robert ended up racing for 3rd against Aaron Johnson. Aaron beat Robert once and Robert beat Aaron once. The time difference was in Aaron's advantage so he grabbed third place. Mike Day had transfered to the final by beating Johnson and had to take on the GT rider. In heat one, Mikey Day crashed which gave Randy a 1.5 second advantage going in the final race. Staying on the bike and close to Mike in the second heat was all Stumpy had to do to win but instead he grabbed the second heat as well. True champ.

BOMBSHELL INC. is proud to announce the release of it's NEW & INNOVATIVE method for solving an age old problem with BMX race frames. The PATENT PENDING VPS™ (V-Brake Position System) allows the use of a 20" x 1 1/8" or 1 3/8 TIRE to be used in a PRO SIZED frame. It also can be used to accept a 20" x 1.5" or 1 3/4" TIRE in an EXPERT or SMALLER sized frame. The VPS™ can also be used on Cruiser sized rims as well.
Prior to the release of the BOMBSHELL VPS™, expensive LONG REACH brakes had to be used to get the brake pad in the optimal location, often compromising the wheel base of the bike to get the brake pads to contact the rim.
