It's 21 and under only and the JR. class is 15 and under. Sign ups start at 10 am and the contest starts at 1pm. We have a new set up as usual at RR and it should be a good comp.

When you go skydiving you meet strange people. Just throwing yourself out of a plane is crazy enough but back on the ground it doesn't stop. Here's some proof for you. It makes for some good Pin Up material though.
Pacific Palisades Elementary School held their annual EcoFest (2007) to much acclaim at which Xtreme athletes, Jesse Puente, the Cycling Flatland World Champion, and Mike Saavedra, THE top-rated Pro BMX and trails rider of today performed with an enviro-friendly message. EcoFest is an event in which kids and parents are encouraged to get to school via "alternative" vehicles (bikes, skateboards, etc.) and then participate in fun, educational, interactive eco activities throughout the day.
PPES's "Green Team" has won the school recognition as the greenest school in all of LAUSD. The event was sponsored by health lifestyle brands Alacer (makers of Emergen-C) an ASEC.
Alacer, a 30-year vitamin company, and category leader among vitamin sellers, has in common with the PPES Green Team, and ASEC, a commitment to a fit, energetic, healthy lifestyle. Alacer's Emergen-C Street Team in part sponsored EcoFest 2007 to "share the good" with Palisades kids and their families.

At Redline headquarters, we have a wall solely dedicated to framed stars ‘n striped jersies; right next to the rainbow striped jersies of our BMX World Champions. Y’see; in every cycling discipline (whether it is mountain bike, road bike, velodrome or cyclo-cross), USA Cycling holds a “U.S. Championships.” Much like all European and Australian associations do, it’s a one-shot, one-day-only National No.1 title. And in all of those forms of cycling, winning and wearing the stars ‘n stripes of a U.S. National Champion is the ultimate. It’s like being crowned ABA National No.1 (only without the 10 wins and 11 months of consistency).
For the past decade, Redline riders have won their share of the red, white and blue jerseys – in the mud ‘n crud sport of cyclo-cross. In fact, Logan Owen – our young BMX star–turned-Cyclocross racer, has already won two Stars ‘n Stripes. Other BMXers who know the prestige of the patriotic jersey are Brian Lopes, Eric Carter, Mike King and Jill Kitner. They have all fought hard for, and won this jersey, in the suspension-realm of mountain bikes. To Carter and King, who are both No.1 title holders in the ABA, donning the stars ‘n stripes is probably as meaningful as holding an ABA No.1 Silver Cup above their head in Oklahoma.
Dynacraft BSC, Inc., the U.S. bicycle distributor, entered into an exclusive licensing partnership with skateboarding legend and action sports pioneer, Tony Hawk. Under terms of this agreement, Dynacraft will develop several new lines of bicycles under the "Tony Hawk" brand. The line will debut at this year's Interbike show in Las Vegas at the end of September and be available in retail stores beginning Spring 2008.
The deal was brokered by IP Chemistry, a division of the Dimensional Branding Group. Dynacraft is planning two different series of "Tony Hawk" products designed for its many clients. "The Tony Hawk HuckJam Series" will be created for Dynacraft's mass merchandise customers. "The Tony Hawk Signature Series", being developed by Dynacraft's recently launched Specialty Retail Group, is for sporting goods chains and other specialty retail customers.
