How many times have you been to Estonia? Josh: 3 times
Why do you try to go back every year? Josh: The contest is soo laidback, the contest lets you sleep all day and ride at night and that's what I do at home so I pretty much fit in well. I really enjoy traveling and don't want to regret not using the opportunities I once had.
As we all know, American BMX in its special form (20 inch bikes etc.) started in the late 1960‘s and early 1970's because of youngster imitating motorsport moto-cross stars. Early '70 ‘s BMX became an organized sport in the USA (check the History of BMX ). As a matter of fact, although not known as BMX (Bicycle Moto-X), in Holland BX (Bicycle Cross) got off the ground in the mid 1950's and also because of youngsters imitating the at the time, motorsport moto-cross stars from Holland and Belgium.

Gilbert, Arizona—January 22, 2007— The American Bicycle Association (ABA) has named American Suzuki Motor Corporation the official Motorcycle and ATV of the 2007 ABA BMX (Bicycle Motocross) racing series. The 2007 ABA BMX Race Series consists of 27 National events and 15 Pro Series events throughout North America. Suzuki Motorcycles and ATVs are a major sponsor of the
This time of the year you see some sponsor changes happen. New budgets become available and other budgets get cut. Being a pro rider in Europe ain't easy. To make things work you have to either go to the bigger comps with a decent pro purse or do a few shows on the side to pay the bills.
In the USA bike companies are not waiting in line either to sponsor riders. Even some pros who make top three in the Dew Tour series and X-Games every time are currently without paying bike sponsors (Chad Kagy - Jamie Bestwick). Call it tough times, call it whatever you want. If you do have a sponsor you're happy with, make sure you keep them stoked. Good luck out there.

10 years doesn't seem all that long ago. When you watch the bonus footage from 1996 you realize that quite a few things have changed in this period of time. Brian Foster was entering King of Dirt contests wearing the full Schwinn XS gear and that includes the leathers. Full face helmets were common (riders like Rooftop and Joe Rich had them too) and in 1996 the shorts were baggy. The chrome bikes weighed at least 8 pounds more and the top pros were wearing company jerseys to represent. It's fun to go back in time and I'm positive that in ten years from now we'll be laughing at the tight pants.
The Best BMX of 2006 is a must have. If you are going to buy only one, buy this Props. It's action packed with footage of too many riders to mention and too many spots to list. Clip after clip, tjak, tjak, tjak, bang, bang, bang, you get the idea. All top notch quality with
You want video clips, you get video clips. Wethepeople hooked it up wih Freecaster so you can watch these four clips. Clip one: Max G in da hizzle - It doesn't get more street than this. Clip two: Overseas action. The last time you see Clint not wearing a helmet. Clip three: UK. They drive on the left side of the rode there. Look left.
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,Yeah, Yeaaaaahhhh. My name is Surridge and I'm no man if I can't do it then noone can.....
That's how the song about Ronnie Surridge starts. You gotta listen to this, it's awesome. Good friend Ronnie Remo wrote and recorded it and if I'm right we hear Ronnie himself do some rapping on the FALCON song too. Go to Remo's myspace now and hit the FALCON song, that's the one about Ronnie Surridge. Priceless. It helps to know Ronnie personally but here are a few lyrics you can expect: -Sixty grand are in my hand and I love living in the dream land; in the USA , the USA, the USA........................
-Ring up Badders, for some shoes................................
-100 hunnies on the net that's what I've come to expect.........
A while ago we had some pics up on this section of FATBMX about Matt Bisschoff's band Dandeliondeath. Looks like they had another performance because we received some new shots. The Failure Bikes owner doesn't hold back when he's on stage and he's not alone. By the way, he wants all bitches to be his friend at the Dandeliondeath myspace site . Now check the hot photos and by the way, one of these hot babes is his wife.
