On 3rd of November the Battle in da Club tour, Germany’s first and sole Bmx Flatland run, is going to take place in Nurenberg. The location is Nurenberg’s most fantastic and trendy club, the Mach 1. Round number 3 of the BidC is presenting itself in a completely new shape and is filled with innovative ideas. Now a selection of only 16 of the best German and Austrian riders are invited to battle for a 2000€ trophy money. The 16 invited participants have the possibility to predefine a companion for the challenge. That means that the riders have to register in teams of two, the so called “tag teams”. Consequently, there are eight teams of two, competing in four battles by lot.
The better team of a “duel” reaches the next round. In round two there are four teams and two battles remaining. After this the final battle is already fix. Two teams are struggling for the ultimate victory. After one of the teams was able to win, there will be a one -on- one finale between the members of the winner- team.

Not too many BMX birthday parties will be going on this week. The only BMX-er who is celebrating his B-day will be Sean Peters. Sean is a flatlander who likes to "Spin it like to hell" as a Czech Republican MC would have described it. Drink one on Sean this week if you will.
We get requests for FATBMX press passes on a regular basis. We're okay with that as long as we can get a decent report and photos back from the person who requested the pass to the event that we cannot attend ourselves. Some passes we've given to girls who did not come across and just wanted to get closer to "the guys". Won't happen again.
Andrew Bershaw of AB Digital Photography went the Playstation Pro Dew Tour finals in Florida for us last weekend and came across with a good selection of awesome photos.
We've split them up for you. Here are the vert shots by Andrew.
Pro Park qualifying went down in Orlando on the 14th and this is how it looks. Finals coming up tomorrow and with all the new talent mixed with veterans like Ryan Nyquist and Dave Mirra, it should be a good one.
