Being on the road is pretty boring... arriving in Greenville at midnight we were stoked to have at least 20 degrees warmer weather, well, at least for a day. we checked into the hotel and Ryan picked us up the next morning to bring us to the unit.
When you have the opportunity to visit Camp Woodward you take it right? Some of our team riders were thinking about going in early 2007 anyway to get in shape so why not add one or two riders more and make a fine trip?!

Catch the best BMX action on TV with the new season of “Props” airing for 13 weeks beginning April 1, 2007 only on FUEL TV. Based on the highly successful video magazine series of the same name, this season of “Props” shows were produced exclusively for FUEL TV and include weekly updates on the Road Fools crew and Props Mega Tour teams; an interview with the legendary Mat Hoffman; coverage of the contests and events such as the Kink Demolition Derby, Bone Deth Jam, Ratty Bike Fest, Rebel BMX Jam, and Backyard Jams; and highlights from the FBM Road Trip, and Texas-to-Toronto road trip. “The great thing about ‘Props’ is that it has stayed true to the core of BMX and has never sold out,” says Shon Tomlin, FUEL TV VP of Programming and Development. “We've always been honored to have the video magazine series on our channel since the start and now are excited to have it evolve into its own TV show. New hosts Catfish and Steve Crandall add a new dynamic to the series without tarnishing the laid-back, action-focused tone of the show. I think ‘Props’ fans and BMX fans in general will appreciate the new format.”

Gilbert, AZ. The American Bicycle Association has been in the business of BMX racing since 1977 and for our 30th Anniversary we decided to make all the years of ABA BMX race photos available online through ababmxphotos.com.
ABA Vice President, BA Anderson stated "Many of the photos we shoot at each national event are never used in publication or seen by the public. To say that we have an abundance of photos is an understatement. From a historical perspective, the amount of photos and slides in the archives is priceless".
We are launching the web site with the existing archival images already in a digital format, shot by BMXer editor/phtographer Dan Mooney and past ABA photographers as well. It’s still a work in progress as we have over 500,000 plus photos to add from the last 30 years of ABA BMX. Once a month or so we will be adding vintage photos, so check back often.
So this weekend was crazy! We all got together and threw a bmx jam/party at our Lost Souls tavern haha. It ended up being pretty awesome. A lot of really good riding went down. A lot of people showed up. There was spray painting going on, some swimming, some bbq, and a little bit of trampoline biking was being done.
Here are some pictures enjoy! Thanks to everyone that made this happen.
