The trip consited of the new Odessa team that was formed by 4down and featured street tearaways Tom Blyth, Mark Tanner, James Cox, Jim Newrick, Cleggy, Josh Bedford, Dean Hearne, Ride photographer Steve Bancroft, American import Kelly Bolton and myself Bomber.
The plan was to meet at Hastings and to drive to the holy grail of Barcalona and to get footage for an upcoming dvd. So off we set, Dean Hearne took the reigns of the van which was shitting the bed enroute to the ferry. It was figured that the van had some kind of polterguist which lead to some kind of nest being formed in the back of the 17 seater by some of the more religious members of the trip in an emergency exociom kind of way........which is half true (the van just needed the cob webs blowing out and some of the guys took to dosing on top of the bikes and bags for sleep, they did become attatched though to what was fondly called the nest).

FATBMX provided Cathy Bluem with a media pass to visit the Arby Action Sports Awards up close. She caught up with BMX Award winner Ryan Guettler and talked about the victory, tricks he's got in the works and his plans for next year. -How does it feel to win? It feels fantastic, I know you guys all voted as much as you can. To be honest when they told me I got nominated for two events, I didn't want this, I wanted to go home (to Australia) it's winter here and I'm getting a cold, this was like two weeks ago, and they told me that I better stay. They couldn't tell me if I won or not but they told me I was nominated and I should stay. Which hinted to me that I might win one of them. The first award came, Comeback of the Year, I really didn't care about that one because it basically meant you crashed and got back on your bike. I wouldn't know what to say for that one so when I lost it to Brian Deegan, it was okay. But for this one (BMX) I didn't know who I was nominated against, so when they were announcing the nominees, Jamie Bestwick, Ryan Nyquist and Anthony Napolitan I figured there was no way I was gonna win this, I'm having such a good night anyways so there's no way I'm gonna win this. Then the chick turned around, and I was like woah, then walking up to the stage, it was the coolest feeling ever.
The night started off late as usual. My friend Heather and I got to the venue at around 6:20pm with the red carpet to begin at 6:30pm but it turned out to be more like 7:00pm before the first celebrities arrived. So there we stood, outside in the freezing cold (yes, it was probably about 60 or so and being from SoCal...that constitutes freezing for us) waiting for the show to begin. The first person to arrive was wake-boarder Dallas Friday. Following her where the hosts of the evenings festivities, the guys of Jackass including Steve-O and Preston Lacy. All I have to say is with those guys around, just expect the unexpected, they are all around really nice guys though.
