A couple of days before deadline we receive e-mails from Kellie Parsons over at 4130 publishing. She kindly asks for a new FATBMX ad before the end of the week. We then start scrolling through the photo archives to find pics that would work for the ad. We come across all kind of photos that we've shot in the last few weeks and put something together. We believe that the riders we use in the ads are down with the FATBMX site and are okay with us using them in the advertisement. The ad right here is the one you will see in the upcoming issues.
