The past 24 hours have been wild. I thought you guys might like to hear about it. Here she goes....
Monday:  So I walk outside of work yesterday into the blinding Florida summer sunshine. It’s 4 O’clock and time to meet my buddy Matt for a Monday street session…except my bike is no longer on my rack. At first I thought it was a joke-I scour the shop to make sure it’s not hiding behind any of the shelves, stuffed in the machine shop, or behind the trailer. Nothing. I realize my bike was stolen right off my rack, 10 feet away from my desk. I was separated from my car by a bay door.

Corey (Profile’s designer) and I drive around the adjacent neighborhoods for a bit in hopes of finding something. I give up. I head back to Profile and make a police report.

Done deal.

That night I check Craig’s list and E-bay. Nothing. I lay in bed unable

Pretoria based BMX star Dean Holdstock showed his hand at the Germiston leg of the SA BMX Champs, providing a timely reminder of his top form and gusty demeanour just six weeks away from the UCI BMX World Champs in Pietermaritzburg. Holdstock’s SA Champs challenge was characterised by one tiny slip-up that let well-known Olympian Sifiso Nhlapo shade him into second overall, but the 21 year-old was grinning as he admitted “I’m gyming and riding flat-out daily. The big names had better watch out!!”
“The track at Germiston was OK, but I’m dying to dust the Maritzburg track,”
said Holdstock. “I’ve heard that a most amazing oke is coming out to build it – one hell-raiser of a character - and the double track area is to be sculpted in a much bigger and better zone than before. Now it’s The Main Arena!”
Holdstock was philosophical when asked about the uncertainty surrounding some of the world’s top riders appearance at the Pietermaritzburg showdown.

June 22nd marks the 3 year anniversary of Stephen Murray's accident in Baltimore MD which left him paralysed from the shoulders down during a double backflip attempt in the finals of the AST Dew Tour. The time may have flown by for us but for Stephen it has been a long, slow challenge to get his life back on track. Medical complications, divorce procedures and general obstacles thrown in his path have kept Stephen determined to over come the challenges before him and tackle his problems head on..

No matter how hard things have gotten for him he has always

After 5 events in the South it was time to drive two hours West for the Trailer Trails Jam. Vladdie de Koning and friends had called for a good time on their hidden dirt spot in Vlissingen. They even added a new line to the existing set up which contributed to the challenge. We had packed up early to get there and on arrival noone was there. After checking if it was the right day we decided to cruise down to Middelburg to kill some time.

When we got back more people had shown up and the riding was in full swing. But the TT Jam is about more than riding alone. Tents were put up in the bush. "Better do it now before you get too drunk to do it" was one of the smart comments heard. The BBQ and party tent were set up for later and also the generator and ghetto blaster were prepared for the night. But before everyone got too intoxicated, some riding took place. Chill session for sure and no pressure whatsoever. Maybe that's the strong point about the Trailer Trails jam

How has the response been to the Cult brand in the UK?
Response to Cult has been exceptional, at present the demand for frames is outstripping production with backorders struggling to be filled. With the level of riders on the team, the quality of the products, and the experience Robbie [Morales] and the whole team over at Cult bring to the table it's hardly surprising demand is this high.

Who, from the UK, are on the Cult team now?
At present the Cult UK team is Alex Kennedy and Bas Keep, it's all
