AMSTERDAM’S MAGERE BRUG ARENA FOR EUROPE’S TOP BMX RIDERS DURING RED BULL BRIDGE MASTER In 1691, when Amsterdam’s city treasurers commissioned the Magere Brug (the Skinny Bridge) designed by Hans Petersom, they could never have imagined that more than 400 years later the same bridge would be the backdrop for what is already being called one of the most spectacular events in Amsterdam in 2006: the Red Bull Bridge Master.
On 22 April the best European BMX riders will jump their bikes on specially constructed ramps on the most photographed bridge in the Netherlands to show their tricks and moves.

Last weekend out little hometown (Aarle-Rixtel) held its annual Harley Davidson meeting. It's an event that scares people off because all kind of freaks show up for the weekend. Saturday saw a lot of rain so not many rebels came by bike. Sunday was good however and the bike show was better outside than it was indoors (same shit every year).
The local Liberator HD club does a good job though and also this year they had all kind of entertainment for the crowd. It included a classic Wall of Death demonstration of motorcycle acrobatics. This show was great.

BOMBSHELL INC. is proud to announce the release of it's NEW & INNOVATIVE method for solving an age old problem with BMX race frames. The PATENT PENDING VPS™ (V-Brake Position System) allows the use of a 20" x 1 1/8" or 1 3/8 TIRE to be used in a PRO SIZED frame. It also can be used to accept a 20" x 1.5" or 1 3/4" TIRE in an EXPERT or SMALLER sized frame. The VPS™ can also be used on Cruiser sized rims as well.
Prior to the release of the BOMBSHELL VPS™, expensive LONG REACH brakes had to be used to get the brake pad in the optimal location, often compromising the wheel base of the bike to get the brake pads to contact the rim.
