We reported earlier on FATBMX that the Eurobike team was working on setting up a brother trade show in Portland Oregon, USA. Well, for now they've put the idea in the fridge meaning that there will be no "USA-BIKE" trade show in 2007. "The decision is primarily attributed to delays in assembling a US management team. In the course of 2006, various US bicycle industry leaders approached Messe Friedrichshafen, requesting that it fill the need for an alternative trade show format in that market."
Michael Ern informed us that on Sunday, December 17, 2006 they are having a nice little contest at the "Rollhaus" in Solingen, Germany. Solingen is located between Dusseldorf and Cologne and is worldfamous for knives and scissors. The "Rollhaus" is a small, but fine skatehall based in a former cinema right in the center of Solingen near the shopping-mall called "Clemens-Gallery". There are ramps such as a vertwall, spine, pyramide, miniramp and banks and quarters in different heights, built in a very compact set-up. Because of the compact set-up, there are a lot of transfer-possibilities.
The registration and training will be from 2-4 pm.
