Local Exposure Tour IV "The Golden Ticket" Local Exposure Tour (LET) is a chance for some of the top pro’s in BMX to set out on a road trip with the idea to search for some unknown amateur talent at local skate parks. This is the first time in LET history that we come out to the West coast in search of talent. The rules are that anyone can enter as long as you have not been featured in a advertisement by a sponsor. All ages and skill levels are welcome to come and ride our jam format and best of all it’s all free! Amateur riders will get a chance to ride with their favorite pros and show them the hot lines around their local park. Due to the great support we have for this year we have a ton of goods to give away at every stop so no one should leave empty handed!
Pro Riders confirmed for this year! Allan Cooke , Dave Rytell (2006 Champion), Ryan “Biz” Jordan, Heath Pinter, Cory Bohan, Chase Hawk, Dominic Travado, Josh Harrington, Dave Dillewaard, Alistair Whitton , Colin Mackay, Adam Banton, Rob Wise, Mike Aitken , Ryan Nyquist and special guest Laif Valin!

We've had change around over here & now the 3 man Euro team are all UK based riders. Ben Hennon, Ben Wallace & Tony Watkinson are the full team, all will be out there representing Haro, riding contests & partying to the fullest throughout the contest "season" & beyond.
Wallace has been on flow with Haro Europe for a few years & done a hell of a job so it was time he was put on the full team for all his efforts. He'll be at most Euro events with me this year, when he's not there you can find him cruising the streets of his home town in a piece of crap "modified" car listening to Panic at the Disco!
Hennon has been on the Euro Team since pretty much day one & will be riding pretty much a bit of everything this year including a big

If you're familiar with these riders and like what they do, you should buy the new issue of DIG. Huh? Yup, it comes with an Animal Bikes (A. Bike Co. if you live in the UK) DVD full of true street riding. Even though it's just 8 minutes long, it's a good way to get motivated to grab your bike and hit the streets. It's filmed by Navaz and Jerry and edited by Bob "freecoasters rock" Scerbo. The additional filming was done by Tyrone, Bob, Duke Stevens, Willie Lopez and Wiz. The beats come from Strength of Will, and Immortal Technique. When you're reading this and you can't find issue 57 of Dig anywhere, contact A-Bikes to see if it's possible to get your
The winter 2007 issue of Sophisticated Rider just came out and it has a good mix of BMX, FMX, Skateboarding and snowboarding in it. On the BMX front there's an article on this year's Simpel Session in Estonia by Ronnie Surridge (there he is again!), a 5 minutes interview with Sidewall/Hoffman Bikes' Mark Owen, the Woodward Am Jam, BMX scholarship? bring it! There's an article on the Vert Gathering at Woodward where JMB gets a big shot doing a turndown and Koji Kraft scores the poster with a stylish lean back seatgrab turnbar. More vert in the form of rider bios on Francisco "Coco" Zurita and Zack Warden makes this issue a must see for any vert dawg out there. Soph rider 7 also has an interview with Daniel Dhers and Anthony Napolitan who both made a strong appearance on the contest scene in 2006. This must sound like a full on BMX magazine but there is loads more on FMX, sk8 and snowboarding.
Federal's Mark Love is an awesome rider. Edd Allen made a video clip of Edd in what looked like private set-ups at the RIDE ramps as well as other skateparks. While photographers are shooting away, Edd fires out trick after trick and doesn't disappoint one bit. Helmet? Naaahhh, proper UK style.
