-Girls Contest at the Suzuki BMXMasters We are proud to announce, that the call for girls was loud enough and we have recieved quite a good feedback from the female BMXers meanwhile. The Girl’s Contests can take place. For example Miss Cory Coffey from the USA, Annica Jonsson from Sweden and Irina Sadovnik from Austria will come to the peninsula at the rhine to rock in the disciplines Flatland and Street.
We have been dragging the camera equipment around in regular backpacks for ages. Never owned one of those original Camera bags and before the camera, flash or any of the lenses got damaged, it was time to look into one. The O'Gio Atiba Mini bag became the choice and TM Fuzz helped out with that one (thanks). The size is actually perfect. We've never been known for carrying truckloads of camera stuff to contests and all we have fits in this Mini rucksack. It has multiple adjustable compartments that you can fit the the size that you need.
Say all you want but Levi's have a killer team. With Morgan Wade, Anthony Napolitan, Jamie Bestwick and Corey Martinez on the team they've got most bases covered. There's a website dedicated to BMX, they've got a rather big flow team and Levi's have also put together a little team video. It might be more of a long commercial to some but that's what Levi's want to do, promote their product.
Okay, let's face it. You did some traveling to a BMX contest to see awesome riding and to hang out with your BMX friends. When the contest gets cancelled because of the shitty weather conditions, your friends are still there. Instead of staying in the hotel moaning about the weather you can go out and have a good time. It wasn't a regular night for the locals in Newton Abbot. BMX was in town which turned the Jolly Farmer and even Enigma into a good place. With Red Bull kicking in 1000 drinking tickets we each had a drink or two. BMX on the Enigma disco dancefloor in Devon, who would have ever thought.

It's 21 and under only and the JR. class is 15 and under. Sign ups start at 10 am and the contest starts at 1pm. We have a new set up as usual at RR and it should be a good comp.

When you go skydiving you meet strange people. Just throwing yourself out of a plane is crazy enough but back on the ground it doesn't stop. Here's some proof for you. It makes for some good Pin Up material though.
