The Red Bull Backyard Digger is touring around The Netherlands at the moment. They're showing that with a bit of effort you can create a good riding spot. Basically what you need is a piece of land, some truckloads of good dirt and manpower. Having a digger present to lay-out the first jumps and starting hill is a great help of course but it doesn't necessarily have to be the Kramer equipment that Red Bull bought to get the job done. We cruised over to Leende where a spot was created at the Sport park on a grass field.

As we all know Stephen Murray is hurt and health care in America is expensive to say the least. To help him out Cory Nastazio held a jam at his trails in Tehachapi, CA with all proceeds going to Stephen. I was told that the cost of Stephens wheelchair is in the region of $23 000 so every dollar counts. Nastys trails are big. Real big. I saw James Foster take it hard twice but he kept on going and gave the crowd a wind shield wiper. Parslow, White, Lavin, Fuzzy were all there making for a great night of dirt.
The Air Zoom Oncore BMX Street Edition is packed with BMXcellence, inspired by our team trip to New York City with Dennis Enarson, Garrett Reynolds, Mike Spinner, and Nigel Sylvester. The crew kept it thorough in the boroughs throwing barspins and tailwhips, riding rails and bustin’ flips. Whether they were killin’ it in the park or finding new lines on the street, the BMX posse found NYC to be second to none. The Air Zoom Oncore BMX Street is built to withstand, but supplies won’t, so don’t sleep on the limited quantity kick.
