Yup, another one of those concrete parks is being opened this Saturday in Zutphen, The Netherlands. The first dudes have been rolling in the park and from the looks of it, the park is great. Cradle and everything. Ledges, stairs, rails, the whole nine yards. If the pics aren't reason enough for you to check it out, you can watch this movie to see how they keep things rolling over in Zutphen. Show your respect and make things work together.
- The Gary Young Props interview is doomed. After Walter drove from Seattle to film Gary in native San Diego, the first trick they tried to film, poor Gary broke his wrist. Mind you, we did the interview questions 1 year ago and were planning on redoing everything this year in Las Vegas at Interbike--lets shoot for 2008 guys.
-Props is finishing up production on 13 new episodes for FUEL TV. Look for the shows to air in early 2007 and include tons of sections from Props, Road Fools and Mega Tour. Hosted by Steve Crandall, after watching you'll have the urge to crack open a cold PBR...
-Road Fools 15 will be shipping on Oct 3rd. This trip was amazing… Road Fools 15 hit the road and traveled across the Midwest including stops in Chicago, Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor, Detroit, Cincinnati, Kokomo, and Ft Wayne. Lots of street on this trip.
On Sunday we're leaving for Interbike in Las Vegas. I'm already catching up on sleep, charging the battery. We're staying in a roach hotel on Paradise Road but it has a fridge, a jacuzzi and a swimming pool. That's where luxury stops though. Mike Emde and Andy Zeiss will be the roommates of Paul and I. Should be a good time. The Interbike trade show starts on Wednesday and ends on Friday. It will show the latest bicycle products so expect an update or two from Vegas next week. If the tradeshow isn't exhausting enough, the evening program will be a rough one. We usually end up at the Hardrock's round bar but this year it looks like we don't have to go anywhere else. FIT Bike Co. will have the premiere of their new FITLIFE video at the Hardrock. Mosh will show their products in one of the rooms and RIDE BMX will have the NORA CUP at the Hardrock this year. Sweet! or should I say, oh shit!
Hannu Cools, Stefan Lantschner, Perico and Niels Thanild went on a Carhartt trip in Italy and filmed a whole bunch of stuff. Italy seems to be taking off these days and the “NO MORE JOKES,PLEASE!” shows spots that you have never seen before.

NEW YORK – September, 2006 – The Dew Action Sports Tour, the pro tour of action sports, today announced the winner of the PlayStation® Trick of the Week Award from the Toyota Challenge. Voting began on Monday, September 11, the day after competitions ended. Fans were able to view video clips and vote online at www.dewactionsportstour.com until Monday, September 18. Fans selected Kevin Robinson as the PlayStation® Trick of the Week winner after he performed a Double Flair following the BMX Vert competition.
This is the second time Robinson has landed the trick. "I’m happy to finally be successful in San Jose,” Robinson said. “Last year I was injured at the Toyota Challenge, and this year I felt I didn’t ride my best during the contest. Now I have a victory coming out of San Jose – my first ever PlayStation® Trick of the Week win!”
-Scotty Cranmer took a good crash on Sat night and had to bring his teeth home in a zip-lock bag. Rung bell, two missing teeth (roots and all) and some stitches in his lip was the outcome. He is off the bikes for a few days, Get well soon Scotty.
-Paulie Lange came down to the So Cal State championships this weekend in Orange, CA. The crew at Tangent products put on a Pro-Am for all the local Pros and Paulie placed second, not bad considering he is not an Orange local. World Champ Javier Colombo took the win. In practice Paulie jumped the entire first jump (a triple) from what we hear this has never been done.
-Interbike is next week, if you are going, stop by the FELT booth # 626 and say hello. Nora Cup party is Thursday night and Scotty Cranmer got the call that he is in the top 5 for the Ramp category.

wethepeople completes again recommended. RideUk again spoke of the 4seasons complete bike as being arguably the best on the market for the second year running. Sure we're happy, sure we're proud but it's not a coincidence because we spent the entire year working out details to make not only the newly released 2007 completes but also the new parts exactly what you'd expect. An introduction of the new full CrMo looptail cruiser, new 18'' young beginners bike, Phoenix complete and re-design touches on every single model. The range still features the finest lightweight Sanko 4130 tubing, fade color schemes, matched spokes, new wtp stamped seats and high end Primo Pro product on the Pro models.
