Chad Kagy sent us a movie clip that is fucking incredible. It was filmed in Mexico City on one of those insanely high roll-in, jump box, quarterpipe set ups that DC and their athletes are known for. We've known that Chad has got balls and skills and this video proves that he is ready for anything. Mucho respecto amigo.

The Doc says he’s ready to go. The fractured shoulder, suffered at the NBL Nellis race is healed, and Redline’s Bubba Harris will return to the starting gate this weekend. Without question, he is looking forward to getting back on a track and bumping his points back to the top of the standings. Only one question remained; whether to make the return in Prunedale, CA or Atlanta, GA – as this weekend is one of only two “overlap” weekends in 2006. Tough choice. But being that no Pro in the history of BMX has ever taken three consecutive No.1 Pro titles in the ABA, Redline has made the call for Bubba to attend the Dixieland Natls in Marrietta, Georgia – at Margie Hatfield’s Cobb County BMX track.
Over the weekend FATBMX joined the Eastpak/Carhartt tour on their way to various riding spots in Belgium and The Netherlands. The riders on board were Benny Paulsen, Bruno Hoffman, Hannu and Sig Cools, Stefan Lantschner, Ben Manuel and Markus Braumann. Expect a report on the touring this week on FATBMX in multiple episodes.
The town of Laarbeek (that includes Aarle-Rixtel, Mariahout, Beek & Donk and Lieshout) is having their second annual "Tour of Laarbeek" on 28 May. If you're wondering what it's about, let me explain. All four villages have their own mini-ramp. One is a hipped version (In Lieshout, that's where they brew the Bavaria beer), one has a spine (B&D, home of the 1982 Open European BMX championships), one mini ramp has an extension (Aarle-Rixtel - of the FAT-JAM fame) and the ramp in Mariahout is simply high and wide. All those ramps are used fairly well and on this day, all 4 ramps will be ridden. Anybody can enter on anything and there is some sort of contest format that will determine a winner at the end of the day. If you feel like riding 4 different ramps in one afternoon, make sure to show up in Mariahout first (11:30am). The day will end with a session in Aarle-Rixtel (starts at 17:30pm). FATBMX will be there.
Tom Stober made the trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil for the PRO RAD BMX vert contest. The ABBMX had turned the floor of the Ibirapuera Gymnasium into a giant vert ramp. With a R$10.000 Reais Prize purse on the line it wasn't only Tom who did giant flairs on the vert ramp.
Thanks to Charaba for putting on the contest and taking the time to send in the results and some cool photos. Vert riding in Brazil, enjoy the photos.
For every rider it's an honour to be invited to go on Road Fools. The following riders received a phone call with the good news to get on the bus for RF 15.
Telling from the list of riders, it's going to be another amazing video to look forward to. If you can't wait that long, tune in on the [url=http://www.propsvisual.com/index_alt.html]Road Fools website[/url] for daily updates. Oh yes, they're leaving this weekend in Chicago.
At the World Cup mountain biking they've got the Hot Seat. It's where the leader of the Downhill Race awaits a faster rider. He then has to make room for the rider that beat his time. The rider who remains in the hot seat till the end is the winner. The Pin-Up of today is making a seat hot too...........
You don't need to have 10 years of riding behind your belt before trying big tricks. Redline's Garrett Reynolds proved that when he pulled a 900 at the Metro jam. The NKE6.0 sponsored rider takes it a step further. He has his hands zip-tied behind his back and drops in on a mini ramp. If that isn't bad-ass enough, he does a pocket air with a barspin in it with his hand still behind his back. Believe it, or not!? That's the name of the FATBMX news section. Oh, we've got a movie for prove:
Don’t go looking for SE’s Lance Mosley from May 17th – 22nd. He’ll be down in the Dominican Republic on an all expense paid vacation, uh…. I mean “riding trip” for Fuel TV.
Fuel is going to do a series of shows uncovering the BMX talent in Latin America. And they’ll be taking a few BMXers from the USA on the trips. The Dominican Republic will be stop #1 and Lane has been invited as one of the U.S. riders to go shred south of the border. Keep your eyes peeled for Lance on your new plasma TV.
