Props really caught me with this one. To do reviews you need to find time to watch the DVD and then watch it again while you type up your review. With 7 other DVD's on the stack to review on FATBMX, it's hard to find time to finish it all. Props usually produces a decent length issue every time but this one was over 2 hours long. There was no need to add another previous issue of Props to #59 as they had maxed out on time already with all the footy.
Seems like #59 seriously goes down as the best one yet. I know we keep saying that but with the variety of the riding and spots, it's really a video that you need to see. The Backyard jam at the end of last year was off the hook. Street is where it's at and with almost a hundred riders on course you know that the finals will rule. The section is almost 8 minutes long and full of big tricks from Aitken, Osato, Hennon, Young and the others.

When you ride, you seem to prefer having fun over being super competitive, is that right? Aaron: HELL YEAH HAHA Bike riding is only about having fun and hanging out with your buddy and seeing things, I love just hanging out and doing nothing all day and riding a spot.

The ABA held round #4 of the 2006 Pro season this past weekend at the Trac Arena in Pasco, WA. A short and simple track made for some super horse power type racing from the Pros, with some of the fastest lap times in ABA National history. With just over 200 moto's the weather outside was just a bit nippy over the weekend, but the enclosed arena made for some perfect racing conditions. 13 AA Pros made the trip to Pasco, for a light Pro turnout, but the riders who were there were some of today's fastest riders. Randy Stumpfhauser was the lone Double A Marketing rider in attendance, but he sure had a stand out weekend. Here is how Randy finished up.
Randy was coming off a strong result from the last ABA National, where he placed 1st and 2nd in AA Pro. Randy had missed the first two rounds of the ABA Pro series, due to a hand injury, but to watch him race in Pasco, you would never know he missed a beat of his training or riding. On Saturday, Stumpy was one of the standout pros in attendance, and once the main events started, he really shined. After a close race with Donny Robinson all day, Stumpy edged him out for the overall win, Randy's 2nd ABA AA win of the season.
It's an obvious concern to us bikers that city parks are going up all over America and not allowing bikes to participate. Like I said in my article "Bikers vs the Government" this is definitely verging on a civil rights issue. Battling the problem from this perspective is asking for a legal court mess I don't think is necessary. The best angle is to offer all the reasons why it's nonsense, and do what we can to help educate as many people as possible. Biking, skating and inlining compete on the same ramps and courses at all the biggest professional contests in the world so it makes sense that we should all be able to session the same parks together. Right now that's not the fact.
