This Dew Tour thing is getting almost as big as the FAT-JAM! No kidding. It looks like they're not messing around with this series.

Round two of the Soul Cycle XL series went down last weekend and good times were in effect. Barry Kohne and Dwayne BMXigan Verkade were at it again. Here’s a little round up of everything you missed out on.
Since Zaandam is not located anywhere near the German and Belgian border, less foreign riders showed up. Considering this, it was great to see riders such as Markus Wilke, Paddy Gross, Sergei Geyer, little ripper Bruno Hoffman and of course Hannu Cools make the trip to the old Bruynzeel factory. Also good to see Vladdie de Koning representing NBR/ Zeeland. Dutch riders were in effect as well, even though a lot were hurt. Barry is still healing up after his handplant gone bad in Heerlen, along with a few others.

-Mike Emde and Andy Zeiss are working on the Rebel Jam, a contest to be held at the Mellow park in Berlin with a hefty prize money budget. Stay tuned.
Premium Product's Josh Harrington actually rode the Metro jam finals with a messed up knee. The victory released the pain for a bit but it came back unwanted. Here's the 411:
Josh Harrington: "I tore my pcl, strained my mcl, acl and something else I cant remember according to the MRI that I had to wait 8 days to get results on. I do not need surgery which makes me very happy. The doctor said I was super close to tearing more ligaments which would send me straight under a big knife! I got lucky. I had to get the fluid

Clic "Double Anti-Fog Lens Goggles" came in the mailbox at FATBMX a while ago for a review but nobody wanted to test them so we gave our test rider Philip an extra cookie and he did the job just fine....Philip is explaning you whether to buy these "Clic Goggles" or not As I was reading the nice transparent box with all the types of use of this manificant "Double Anti-Fog Lens Goggles" it was Me to try everything that was on the box:

- Skiing: it sucked, the "Track Ventilator for Air-Flow" was full of snow
- Running: it sucked, I lost the goggles half-way at the Marathon of NY
- Walking: it sucked, who needs goggles to walk?

We had some FATBMX jerseys made by our party buddy Franky Theunis of Bioracer in Belgium. They turned out really nice. Franky has been telling us they are using only the best fabrics over at Bioracer in Belgium and after a visit to their facility we were convinced that they actually do deliver quality product. We added some co-sponsors to the jersey for that "Factory look", hey, at least it looks like you are hooked up!
