We said it before and we'll say it again, Matt Bischoff is one stoked dude. RedBull came in with a couple of work crews and a bunch of top riders and changed his backyard into a dream. Although a bit chilly, the RedBull Build-Off went very well. With respected BMX ramp building teams consisting of: Team 1: Aaron Bostrom, Burly Matt Gibeaut, and Ty Stuyvesant, Team 2: Ryan Corrigan, Ron Kimler and Chris Hallman and Team 3 consisting of Craig Billingsley, Mike Ryan, and Glen Johns getting to work with a bunch of plywood, saws and nail guns, Matt's backyard changed real quick in three days time.
After working with peta2â€”PETA’s youth divisionâ€”to help promote the riding extravaganza Flatcrap and to shoot a pro-vegetarian public service announcement, BMX pro Aaron Behnke decided he’d like to do a little more to fight animal abuse.
Aaron and his sponsors, Etnies and UGP, have joined with peta2 to create an awesome online contest giveaway. One lucky winner will receive a T-shirt, beanie, pair of socks, and stickers from UGP plus a hot pair of PETA pal Taj Mihelich signature shoes. Second-and third-place winners will take home a T-shirt, pair of socks, and stickers. Fifty runners-up will each receive a poster of Aaron’s PSA. All that contestants have to do is go to peta2.com and register to win.
Does Aaron feel he’s sacrificing anything in order not to eat or wear any animal products? Hardly:
Everybody was stoked to hear that adidas is setting up another Berlin City Games after a great success last year. Especially me as a huge Berlin fan.
Once again Jens Werner and his crew and Matti RÃ¶se made things possible and gave their best so riders really feel comfy.
The location was a different one than last time but not less unusual. An old post train station with real industrial design was the place to be on that Satuday evening. Everything was planned for one day - incl. a great party with the Grime Time straight from London UK. I guess I wasn't the only one who had to get used to the music...
Issue 0048 of DIG might be the last issue published by DIG Magazine ltd. You see, DIGBMX has teamed up with 4130.com as a publisher to perceive bigger and better things. Same style of mag, different printer.
#48 is another big one with with 141 pages. It's got the usuals but a whole lot of unusuals too. The editorial staff gets one full page of space, or were they expecting another ad to come in? The beginning of the mag has all these short articles which are great to read. Ballbag, Staff Infection, Studio 153, tight set-up, Reader photos, Kink Deconstruction Derby (congrats on the podium Brian!), reviews, events, quick Jamie Bestwick interview, a thing on cellphone Thorne, CFB comp, Verthaus jam and then straight into the Flat Earth Society. By this time you actually spent some time on the shitter.
