Name: Mark Vos Age: 23 born 08-03-1984 Hometown: Amsterdam, Netherlands Sponsors:ETNIES, SIMPLEBMX
New bike sponsor, how did that come about? Mark: A while ago in Vegas, a very friendly dude jumped in our van when we were on a roadtrip in California, knew him from the Simple Session a few years ago: Niels Thanild. Got to learn about his views on life and the tech side of bikes, really loved it but I had a free frame from Mankind at that time. Later on in Holland, at the moment the Soulcycle team dropped, Markus Wilke at Khe contacted me. Really thanks for that, but I also spoke to Niels about maybe becoming part of the Simple minded people. That worked out, and just before the X games in Dubai I got the stickers thanks to Paul's Boutique. When I got back we worked things out. I JUST BUILT UP A NEW ENIGMA and am so stoked.
The FATBMX archive is getting bigger and bigger. You can look up a lot of things by using the FATBMX search button just below the header in your top right. Simply type an event, a name, a word and it will take you to FATBMX articles that you are looking for. Make sure to hit the SHOW ALL RESULTS link because there are probably more results than the five that are showing. In 2007 we posted quite a few interviews.

Name: Dave Osato Age: Just turned 31 Hometown: Born in Winnipeg but live in Vancouver for the past 11 years or so.
You've been sponsored by wethepeople for a while. You do more for them than just ride. What are your duties? Dave: My first and foremost duties is to represent WTP while riding my bike. The other stuff just came about last year and those duties are to take care of the WTP team in the US. That means I would make sure they are all happy with the product they get and make sure it gets to them ASAP. It is pretty much a US team manager job and just taking care of the team there.
You have been riding internationally for a really long time. Are you still looking forward to your next trip? Dave: I am always looking forward to the next trip. I have met so
Fame brings a lot of distractions; cars, girls, gambling, houses, parties, motorcycles but Ryan Guettler knows where he's coming from and understands it's his bike that got him all the above. And it's not that it was just given to him. Ryan works hard at what he does and rolls the dice when he enters contests. It's all or nothing for the Australian which resulted in him pulling the first 1080 on dirt in a competition in 2007. Ryan is far from done.
Australian Corey Bohan has been on top of the Dirt Jumping charts over the last couple of years and somehow doesn't come across as a competitive person. He's got styles for miles and mixes tricks up. He's got no problem with doing spins in the opposite direction and 9 out of 10 times he's got a smile on his face at the bottom of the course. Corey likes to surf, hang out with his family and mates and the Giant rider likes to ride good courses. What else is he into? Just read on for an interview with Corey Bohan.
-Is this the time of the year when you start thinking about being in Australia? Dec is the time when I usually head home. I'm in the States for a long time and it's good to get home and hangout with family and friends. Plus summer is well underway so I get to surf everyday and come home to home cooked meals from the family. Life is good in Aus.
-How often do mates from Australia visit you in Corona, California?
FATBMX: You've been riding for Macneil for a while. Do you have any signature parts out at the company? Kym Grosser: No signature parts yet, but hopefully soon.
FATBMX: You live in Australia but you travel a lot too. How much time (in 2007) did you spend abroad? Kym Grosser: In 2007 I had a good year! I went to New Zealand for X air in Feb then I got to go to Metro in Singapore in the middle of the year an I also stayed an extra week to do BMX Pig which was awesome fun!! an a few months ago I went to Whistler for Red Bull Elevation an stayed in Vancouver for an extra week...
Scotty Cranmer has been putting out some amazing riding web videos in 2007. We have another web video for you but this time Scotty is not on his bike (except for the three wheeler roll back) but he talks about his bike shop and shows his new resi-ramps.
At the age of 16 nobody has made such an impact on the Dew tour just like Dennis Enarson did in 2007. The San Diego local took his dad and his Volume to the comps and destroyed Park as well as Dirt finishing 6th and 3rd overall respectively. Haro bikes have given Dennis a ride for next year so you'll be seeing him at big comps in 2008. Lloyd Ramsay caught up with Dennis in the Bay Area, his first ride on HARO.
Q : What did you spend your first paycheck from Haro on? A : I actually haven't got it yet, but I will probably save it. (Dennis has been on Haro for only a week)
Q : What is the next big trick you are working on? A : I don't usually work on tricks, just usually think of them before a contest but I would really like to work on a quad whip sometime this year. That's like one of my goals for this or next year so I'm not too worried.
