VWP have two BMX racing helmets in the works that will become available in January 2009. We've all heard about too many head injuries lately so protect your head as good as you can. Even flatland is dangerous and can be near fatal as Alexis Desolneuxexperienced. We don't expect flatland riders to be wearing full face
Tens of millions of Olympic fans watched BMX racing make its debut this year as a Medal sport. And of those 48 men and women who made the cut, eight of them were members of the REDLINE GLOBAL force.

The Side-hack Challenge- Come one, come all. If you've never seen the hacks race, it’s a site to behold. It’s a no holds bar crash and bash fest and the fans love it! Last year we added them to the Friday Night excitement and it went over really well. With a few more it should even be better. Roseville still holds the record of 17 hacks thus far, but things look good for the Friday Night event to break all records. If you've got a hack bring it on down. Didn't make the NAG 5 cut?? Well, this is YOUR
Pieter Does was waiting at the back door at 7am to go to the Stoppel Cross race in Odiliapeel. Damn it was early. Still dark, a little wet outside from all the rain and they you actually tell yourself why you're doing all this. We drove over to Eric Mulders in Helmond Ghetto and caravaned to the track with the help of TomTom.

BMX racing is about to get faster. Conceived for unparallel efficiency in transferring pedal power and other rider inputs into lateral motion, the new Power Block racing tire from Tioga is destined to make BMX racers go faster with less wasted effort. A key to achieving such bold claim is the willingness to obsessively study details of riders’ riding mechanics and then design a tread that doesn’t disrupt their riding motion. “It’s easy once you spent hours upon hours studying film, focusing on changes in the tire’s characteristics with each, seemingly minor, change in the rider’s input” said Kai Cheng, Tioga’s Marketing Manager. “The research is exhaustive, but the result is essentially a tread designed to anticipate rider input so its knobs are strategically placed to limit the loss of momentum” Cheng added.
The Power Block starts fast at the gate with testing confirming

This week however I managed to make it to Boekel for round two where a new track was roped off in a chopped off corn field. A wet chopped off corn field I have to say but at least it stopped raining at 8am and it wasn't freezing. You always gotta see the bright side of life too. The hobby cross MX season always draws a fair number of (ex) BMX riders
