Bummer he couldn't make it to the T-Mobile Dirt Session in Herten this month. But we was sure ready when everyone saw him ride at this years FISE in south France - Well done Ale!
-Speaking of injuries. Jean Marie Bärtsch had some torn muscles after that crash at camp Woodward, he wasn't even able to lift his favourite Swiss Hürlimann beer. Thank god he´s back on track with a decent 4th place in pro vert also at FISE. Smooth and a lot of style!
-Alex Jumelin is full of energy. He just recently left his sponsor KHE to start his own project with some of the best french riders and KOXX bikes. He still rides his KHE Paris frame but expect a KOXX prototype under his body soon. Further he got employed at Cream Bmx Magazine to take care of advertising and events - that fits if you ask me!
-After Hannu Cools was traveling the first three months this year he had to promise his boss to stay at work at least the whole April. So that might be the reason why no one seen him in that time. Dont worry, Tarzan will be riding and climbing soon again.
-Our youngest rider Bruno Hoffmann is getting better and better. He placed an amazing 9th place in pro park at the FISE which was his first int. Bmx comp. Look at the line up and who he left behind. He also has a nice interview on our friends website - check here
-If you are stuck on Fatbmx you people can also check Ben Hennon´s great interview too. Ben is a treat to watch ride - so high, full throttle and committment. Ben also did a little traveling lately and he's competing a lot of dirt this year. That might get you some dirty laundry Ben!
-A huge thanks goes out to the large Eastpak army representing at FISE incl. Mike Miller, Phil Aller, Bruno Hoffmann, Alex Jumelin, Ben Hennon, Bibi, Patrick Guimez, Arthur Dietrich, Alessandro Barbero, etc.
-Hey, Mr. Spinner, nice bags ;-)
