Eddie Fiola: 1 foot aerial
Photo by: James Cassimus
Eddie Fiola had an interview in this issue of BMX Plus! Here's a few quotes from the text:"Eddie Fiola is a wizard. He makes things happen on a bike you just can't believe. Whether it's one-footer aerials, tabletops, cross-ups, one-handers, airborne 360-s or not-so-simple jumps, Eddie rips."
"Now 17, Eddie started out like most California kids. He jumped on the skateboarding rage at age 10 and soon gravitated to skateparks. The first one open to Eddie was Skatopia, near Knotts's Berry Farm. It was here Fiola learned the basics of vertical riding."
The pieces at legal graffiti spot "De Berenkuil" in Eindhoven keep changing. When driving by I'm trying to spot the new stuff but I never have a camera with me or time to stop. That's why I made the trip down there by bike and put the camera in the backpack.
Here's part one of the graffiti art. More to follow.
The newly completed skatepark in Coxhoe, Durham is the latest, sickest installation by GBH Ramps so far. Rain, hail or even snow couldn’t deter the GBH site crew as they fought against the elements to finish the impressive construct.
This beast of a park is full to the brim of the slickest transitions with 2 Volcanos; one hipped and one with a spine, a sloped coping mini ramp, pyramid with profile grinds, spine mini with rollin and volcano sections.
We ran into Robbie Morales at the Bike Show in England and decided to have a chat with him to see how his FIT BIKE CO is doing these days. We sat down, had a diet Coke and got the Sony IC Recorder going.
When you started your company in 2000 it came as a big surprise. You had left the T1 squad and started your own thing. Looking back 5 years later, has it worked out the way you thought it would?
Rob-O: In 2000 coming off of T1 I was really excited, basically to get more products made because that was our main problem at T1, we couldn't get our products made, and then seeing them made on a more consistent level was exciting, you know and obviously S&M has helped me with that. As the company has grown I've been able to help the
"COOPER Makes tomorrow alright" CD.
It ain't much if it ain't Dutch so Kung FU Europe signed Cooper as their first European band. Based in the Hague, Cooper released 3 albums, first 2 produced and recorded by Tom Holkenborg of Junkie XL fame and the third by Michel Schoots from the Urban Dance Squad.
This fourth album was produced by Bill Stevenson (not S&M Chris's father I guess) drummer from bands like Black Flag/All/Descendents
Featuring: TM Everett Rosecrans, Gary Haselhorst, Ron House, Brian Gass, Beatle Rosecrans and Kele Rosecrans.
A halfpipe is, well, a half pipe. This plexiglass Vans ramp is indeed a half pipe with no platform in the middle. It must have been one of the first transportable halfpipes made that was used for BMX shows. The team performed "ultra rad shows" at schools, Knott's Berry Farm, Magic Mountain, the LA County fair, on national TV and in large annual city parades.
Check out the Vans shoes at the bottom. All of those shoes you can still buy today and look stylish. History boy, history.

When shit doesn’t flow, it doesn’t flow, which brings me to a local park around my work. It is located in Hawthorne, CA. This park is having a hard time flowingâ€¦most lines have to cross in the middle, since all obstacles are on a outside of a huge bowl, which causes riders to collapse expectedly unexpected... then again I can’t complain when there is a 15.000 sq ft park a spitting distance awayâ€¦
A few weeks ago we interviewed [url=//fatbmx.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=292]Greg Romero[/url] here on FATBMX. Greg is one of the main men behind Revtec and they're taking things rather serious over there (not). This is funny shit:
The Revtec Pros went to Florida to race the Best In BMX NBL Spring Break Tournaments aboard the new 2005 Elite frames and let their presence be known. Being that these two races counted for the valuable UCI World Rankings, throw in that the â€œAll Bub Associationâ€? couldn’t get the Horseheads, NY track to commit for the conflict so the Elite qualifying motos were full, Bub saw semis at a race for once, and the world got a sneak preview of what to expect for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games.

The first weekend in Orlando was Greg’s first race back feeling 100% healed up from a car accident that has plagued him from training since
