– Monterey, California – So far in 2006, GT Bicycles’ 16 Expert Joey Bradford has picked right back up where he left off in ’05 after winning his first ABA NAG#1 title last November at the ABA Grand Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After, the Grands, the head honchos at Pacific switched Joey from Mongoose to GT. Before his GT debut in Reno, Joey switched up tire size and changed crank length, which gave him some gearing problems. Reno was a start to the year that Bradford feels wasn’t quite up to snuff. Of course for Joey, with a second and third in 16 Expert, anything less than a win is sub-par. Joey made up for it with a 16 Expert double in Bakersfield including a great high low pass between Sowers and Woodmansee to take the lead in Saturday’s 16 Expert main. Check out the following [url=http://joeybradford.com/images/videos/C1assmain1.MOV]movie[/url] to see this main.
A couple years ago, to make things a little more challenging, Bradford started racing a Mountain Bike in cruiser. Bradford busted out his brand new GT MTB, powering it to a pair of thirds for the weekend. Not bad for a bike that’s at least 10 pounds heavier than the competition.
The cat is out of the bag. Taj Mihelich has given up his co-ownership of Terrible One. To avoid the rumours going ever crazier, we wanted to show you what Taj had to say.
Hello everyone! Ok, lets see, from what I’ve heard the rumors are getting out of hand. I have indeed made some major changes in the last few days, but nothing as dramatic as the leaving Austin to take Roscoe to race the Iditarod Arctic Tundra race!
I’ve decided after a few months of deep thought and consideration that I am going to officially leave the business side of Terrible One.

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.
