It was bound to happen sooner or later. DIGBMX have finally got a new website up and running. Don't expect all sorts of comps for free products or a message board where you can spout off about who you think is better than your friends at riding though. The newly revamped Dig website is basically an extension of the magazine. It's loaded with overspill (photos and content) from the actual magazine, a rundown of the current issue on sale, a new web zine section, music reviews with links to MP3s, a Repo section, links and event listings. Dig Webmaster Dave Sowerby labored hard over
Well, the jam was literally blown away. While the rest of Spain had to suffer hard rain and snow we had sunshine - BUT... heavy blowing winds, a thing vert-riders hate most. So we decided not to ride vert and we all ended up trying new tricks into the foam pit- having fun anyway. On one hand it was a pity that we couldn´t ride together but on the other hand it was great to see that almost every BMXer from Valencia (and beyond) was showing up and that there is a BMX-scene here. Thanks a lot to Mankind-Rider Juan Ruiz and Ismael for coming all the way from Albacete. Looking foreward to see everybody at the next jam ! Björn

What is People‘s Store? It's just a new cool BMX & Clothing Shop in the centre of Cologne/Germany where you'll have the chance to see more products and some hard to find brands. Obviously it will stock an extensive wethepeople range but we'll have an unrivalled stock of other brands and related clothing as well. Brought to you by the guys of wethepeople and Janosch‘s BMX Shop. Unlike mailorder, you can come and feel and see the real deal, or just hang out and drink a cup of coffee or tea!
For the second year in a row Josh Harrington won one of the biggest contests on earth; the Metro Jam. With over 90 pros entering the contest it's hard to make the finals. Winning the Toronto Metro stop two years in a row has never been done before so Josh must be stoked. Dave Mirra decided to stop by for the first time and got second, living up to his reputation of finishing high at major contests. San Diego's Gary Young placed third.
2006 Toronto Metro Jam final pro street results:
1 Josh Harrington 94.0 2 Dave Mirra 93.4 3 Gary Young 91.6 *Gary Wins Tie Break 4 Morgan Wade 91.6 5 Garrett Reynolds 90.6 6 Brian Hunt 90.2 7 Chris Doyle 89.8
The little one woke up at 6am on Sunday morning. It didn't really matter as I needed to get up anyway. The Open Dutch MX championships were on the program for the day and I planned on leaving at 9am. Right then it started to snow. Hard! I decided to enjoy the warm living room for a bit longer before I got in the car to drive to Gemert. It got real white within 15 minutes and I checked the internet to see if there were any posts up on the event. I coulnd't find anything so it was off to the track. 15 minutes later I arrived and the sun was out. Nice. It was cold but I was prepared and wore a lot of clothes. I checked in with the Universal MX riders ([url=http://www.mxjarno.com]Jarno Verhorevoort[/url] and new rider [url=http://www.johancarlsson.com/]Johan Carlsson[/url] from Sweden) before I made it to the track to shoot some pics in practice. The racing in both MX1 and MX2 classes was intense and here's the little report I wrote for Monday's Kickstart.
I just found out I was too late to get it posted so here goes:
The world is full of surprises. Brad McDonald is leaving Transworld Media. After starting Ride magazine from his bedroom in the early 90-s McDonald had worked his way to the top at Transworld media as their Group Publisher. He also had a hand in starting SNAP, BMX Business News, Transworld Motocross and their latest addition, TW Quad. Now what's McDonald going to do?
"It is with both sadness and excitement that I announce my departure from TransWorld. I am returning to my entrepreneurial roots and am launching a new venture, which will be an online media company." stated McDonald, he continues:
