It was some nasty weather conditions chief organizer Cay Clauberg and his Team were facing ahead of the second PLAYSTATION® THE CHAMP SERIES 2007 tourstop in Moers. But thanks to the great support of many helping hands more than 1000 excited fans could witness Markus Hampl win the dirt contest and take 1500 € of price money with him. Due to heavy rainfall on Friday Benny Paulsen and his team really had their hands full to save the newly created dirtpark in Moers. Several tons of mud had been moved there, which were now flooded.

Atom Deemers video Make Moves is a very chilled out affair with original music accompanying the riding through out the video. The video as a whole has a good flow to it being edited into one seamless reel giving it a chapterless feel. Tennesee rider Kevin Friskel has his own section which has him throwing his bars of everything and anything. 2-Hips Jarrod Allen throws in some Santa Cruz moves while super low key Jake Honesto pulls crazy tricks as usual.
The extra features section has even more riding , a homeless crazy, bouncing cars and an alternate edit to Honesto's part. Not much dirt but you get your fill of street spots and ditches for sure. My copy came with a limited edition poster so if you hurry you might get one as well.
The closest I can equate this video to is : if you like bmx and DJ Shadow then this is your video. This is the type of video you watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon after you are done riding.
Rider list : Kevin Friskel , Jarrod Allen , Jake Honesto , Ray Romo , Adrian Vigil , Nate Richter , Gil Montoya , Francisco Colon and Shady Jake

Factory Formula Bicycles / Monster Energy / Fly Racing rolled into the ABA’s Las Vegas Nationals ready to try their luck at the ABA’s biggest national in a long while. US National Champ dR Donny Robinson, ABA National #1 Pro Woman Alise Post, A Pro Warren McDow, NAG #1 18 Expert Lee Lewis, and 13 Expert Chad Kerley all had their Solution frames set on “kill”. With such a stout roster of talent in attendance, the team also decided to put in it’s first Factory Team Sheet for the year. The stage was set for a good ‘ole wild west shootout.
Donny Robinson – AA Pro – Solution Pro – Donny hasn’t done a whole lot of ABA this season, concentrating more on the UCI races. Donny wants that Olympic Gold medal bad. Saturday, dR ran well through motos, but got caught up in a first turn crash in Semi’s and didn’t make the main.
An old Haro Master, bashguard model. In fact, it's Mat Hoffman's old frame that he pulled the first ever 180 flip (it was a bit too up-n-down to call it a "flair") at the UK KOV in Mansfield back in 1990. It was a seminal moment in BMX. Mat pulled this trick, then immediately rode round the back of the ramp and presented the bike to a kid whose dream it was to meet Mat Hoffman as part of his Make A Wish day out. The kid was just blown away. The bike made it back to Ride BMX Mag a year or two later and now you have the chance to bid to own this piece of history.
