Yes it was a bit of a flight but we made it. Checked in the hotel across the street from the Singapore Metro jam and took a photo from the room. They're still finishing up and when it's done we'll take a few pics and show it to you. Riders are dropping in. Just shook hands with Osato, Freimuth, Whitton, Grotbags, Bibi, Wicke, Martinez, Dhers, Napolitan, Dillewaard, Wise, Wade L., Nyquist, MacKay, Keep and that's just a small part of the riders that are going to be here. It's 32 degrees Celsius and humid but they've got airco everywhere and wireless in the lobby. Stay tight, more to come.
As the weather was mostly cold and rainy we rode indoors, Lot8 and Cloud9. Hannu's bike arrived after 2 days, by this time he was getting used to TM Andy's ride. He was brakeless this time. Good sessions went down with the locals, including Tom Stober, Jamie Bestwick, Andy Alvarez and a few visiting pros. One of them being Mike Spinner who does 7's to get warmed up and has the most dialled footjam-tailwhips. Hennon rode for short periods of time, but they were all like a comp.

The Moora Cups were handed out at the Winston Kingdom (Amsterdam, NL) last Saturday. The results that appeared on FATBMX on 1 April 2007 (that's right, April Fools) were just made up. However we were right in one discipline: The Dutch website of the year award went to: FATBMX (but it was damn close.....). There are some surprising results in the Dutch awards but that's probably what you get when you do online voting.
