Here's to brighter skies, that's the motto on the TWOAND8 / Stephen Murray t-shirt. As luck would have it, the worst summer ever in Britain took a break for the weekend and the resulting benefit jam turned out to be one of the best of the year.

The 2007 NBL season has been one of the best NBL title chases in history. With a slew of great finishes from multiple riders throughout the season, the NBL title would be decided by the outcome of the main event.

This was by far the most anticipated event of the 2007 NBL season and the Double A Marketing Pros were up for the chance to win a #1 title. Here is how they finished up at the NBL Grands: Kyle Bennett may just be the best Pro rider in BMX right now. After missing the start of the 2007 Season after having major surgery on his knee, Kyle came back in April in a big way, with some impressive results, including a slew of wins.
