Some spots have been around for ages and have more meaning to people than just a place to ride. Some of them learned how to ride at the spot and have great memories of sessions at the spot. Plans are to destroy 2 legendary spots in Bochum, the concrete pool and the vert ramp. Of course this should not happen. That's why a jam has been organized to show the local council that indeed these spots are important and should not be destroyed.

A dirtcomp on a normal Wednesday is kinda weird but not for the Dirtycampus guys in Cologne and certainly not for the other beerdrinking and bratwurst eating people from Keulifornia. Build by Benny Paulsen the 4 sets of jumps in a left hand corner were not easy for most of the BMX'ers, some had a real hard time like Tobias Wicke, Pim van den Bos, Magga and company so only 8 riders were riding the "finals". The Mountainbikers with Timo Pritzel and Benny Korthaus as semi-bmx'ers made it look easier than it was.
Last 3 places were taken bij the "DUTCH" but don't blame it to the judges, Pim couldn't make it through the whole set and only did some frontflip attempts on the third set and Colin Stolz first real contest was full of crashes, Daniel Wedemeijer was doing good but too many mistakes didn't give him enough points to make it to top 5.

With the Olympic Games in Beijing only two months away, the excitement for the debut of BMX Race is mounting daily. Among a strong group of contenders from both the men’s and women’s sides, two riders have emerged as the ones to watch as the US Team chases its dreams of Olympic Gold. For the men, the rider to watch is Mike Day. With a string of successes over the last three years including the 2005 NBL #1 Pro, 2005 UCI Worlds 2nd Place, 2006 UCI Worlds 3rd Place, and the 2007 UCI Supercross 1st Place, Mike has been on a tear leading up to Olympic qualification. The fastest rider on Olympic style tracks, Mike has won every time trial on the UCI Supercross circuit for the last year and a half. Crediting his monster speed to his longer than average legs, Mike also clocked the fastest time of any athlete on the Beijing Supercross track during last year's test races. To say he has an advantage there would be an understatement.

The American Bicycle Association hosted the Spring Nationals this past weekend, May, 23-25 in Albuquerque, NM. The Veloport/Duke City BMX Facility is the only the second BMX only facility built in the world and what a great place it is. The racing at the Spring National event was exciting to say the least! The Duke City BMX crew really stepped it up and had the facility in tip top shape and ready to race! This was the fifth PRO Series event of the season and the PRO Riders were excited to head to the high altitude of New Mexico to see who had the legs on the tour.
