To celebrate its 30th birthday, SE racing (makers of the PK RIPPER) joined forces with DC Shoe CO. The result is a unique limited edition colourway of the PK Ripper bike. Although the BMX history collaboration with DC seems pretty strange, we can't deny that the bike looks bitchin' and the introduction party looked great. It's good to see BMX history getting some credit from different corners.
Dude, where has this story been? It's been on my mind since it happened but for some reason the street/park report never made it on the site. Now we're a few weeks later in life and it will be harder to remember everything that happened. In fact, I'm going to keep this one short. I'll save this one for the videos and magazines to come out. They'll show you what happened. It was nuts though. The crowd was massive and got the best out of each rider. Sometimes it didn't all work out for each one of them but at least they gave all they got. And that made it even better. Mike Spinner got close to a 1080 but Ben Wallace pulled his first ever 360 double downside whip. It didn't stop there as Mark Webb pulled his first ever 360-triple tailwhip! With a couple thousand people on the sidelines you can only imagine what went on in Montpellier at the 11th FISE.
France had 4 riders in the finals (Fouque, Kalkhoff, Charveron and Lauque), England had 4 (Miller, Webb, Wallace and Mark Love - Phil Aller did not start as his trip back home left before the finals started).
Boom!! What a fantastic start! The first station of the 2007 Battle in da Club tour on May the 17th has definitely rocked the unbelievable CocoonClub. Exciting battles and at the end Sebastian Pospischil got the victory. There can be only one! Here is the ranking, which is also the current state of the whole tour ranking: 1. Sebastian Pospischil
Unfortunately we didn't see much of this year's flatland contest at the FISE. The flatland crew had their own platform built up which wasn't massive and a bit wobbly but you couldn't tell so when it mattered. One of the highlights that I did get to witness was a performance of Mike Spinner in Pro Flat qualifying. No front brake, no pegs, no freecoaster, just his regular street bike.
