We've got some new FATBMX.com advertisements coming up. You will find them in the new RIDE BMX, DIG, Freedom and Pusher magazines. Here's ad two in a series of three. That's Mientje and our Mom throwing the Slayers at the FAT-JAM Heavy Metal party in OJA. They're not afraid to rock as you can see. Be on the look out for the new ads. Those magazines who are interested in becoming a FATBMX partner, feel free to get in touch.
Damn, Hell, Shit, Devil, the FATBMX server crashed yesterday. Not only did this mean that you couldn't check out the site yesterday, they had only backed up the site from 4 November.
This means that 12 days of uploads are gone and since that takes a couple of hours a day to do, this boy is pissed. What makes me even pissed off is that I have not saved any text and deleted all of the re-sized pics. This blows.
I hope you enjoyed it while it was up. If there is a lawyer out there who can help us sue Orion for a few million.... get in tough. Yeah right.
We apologize to everyone for the inconvenience. We'll try to get some articles back up again and continue from there.
Redline's Bubba Harris is leading the ABA BMX series. The ABA season is going to see the end at the Grand Nationals in Oklahoma at the end of November. Bubba has a maximum number of wins going into the Grands. All he can do now is keep his competition away from scoring maximum points by grabbing the victory himself. See how he did in Phoenix at the Fall Nationals last weekend. Saturday Pro Results, including the AA pros, Girl Pro, Vet Pro and Pro Cruiser class:
When Lance Armstrong's wristbands came on the market I didn't expect much of it. Before I knew it though, I saw loads of people wear those yellow bracelets. It didn't take long before the copycats thought they could cash in on this. We've seen pretty much any colour of the rainbow by now. Enter Mat Hoffman. When he was asked to make some art for a wristband, he had some doubts too. But the Condor was also asked to pick two good causes
"Graffiti art is constantly changing. Fresh coats of paint and newly pasted posters appear overnight in cities across the world. New artists, new ideas and new tactics displace faded images in a perpetual process of renewal and metamorphosis. From Stockholm to Tokyo, Barcelona to Los Angeles, Melbourne to Milan, wall spaces are a breeding ground for graphic and typographic forms as artists unleash their daily creations."by Tristan Manco
LG Action Sports Tour Finals Manchester U.K. This was the end of the LG Action Sports Tour in Europe, it was the first one and it started a bit sketchy but it ended with a Bang. Handing out US$ 200.000 for 2 classes (Vert and Park) is not what we call "Normal" but it happened in the MENA building in Manchester U.K. The streetcourse was way better than we had seen on the other stops of the tour (with many problems like: space, time and even customs) and the ASA guys showed that they learned a lot in Europe this year. The Vert ramp was a huge Kingsize one and it took some time before riders were used to the big transition and lack of Vert.
Eindhoven has a legal sport for graffiti artists or whoever wants to express their feelings with a spraycan. Some of it is good, some is rubbish, but everybody needs to start somewhere. It's better to do it at a legal spot. The tFAT piece you see here is not made by the FATBMX crew. We stopped doing this in 1985 when we made our first "piece" and got caught (and spent the next day cleaning the wall). Enjoy part one of the Berenkuil art. Part two follows later and can also be found in the Comic 'n Art section on FATBMX. BdJ
