To make a good video you need some time to get everything together. The first Premium Products DVD had been in the making for a while but that is common. When we take our time to do a review you can add a couple of weeks to that. Kyle Carlson was one of the main guys filming and editing the DVD and he did a great job. Clear footy across the board with most clips coming from outdoor concrete parks in Oregon, California and Arizona.
For most riders it's a dream to get invited on Roadfools but soon enough the Local Exposure tour is up there on top of that list. Round three looked like good fun where a crew of pro riders joined Allan Cooke in his giant RV on his way to find local talent at the local parks. The pro crew on the bus consisted of Corey Martinez, Gary Young, Michael Cleveland, Chris Doyle, Kenji, Biz, last year's winner Brandon Hoerres, Kranz and Catfish plus special guest Dave Mirra.
Mat Hoffman's going to be in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on the Oklahoma Centennial Float. 2007 is Oklahoma's (Mat's home state) Centennial and Oklahoma's float will be leading the beginning of the annual Thanksgiving Parade in NYC. Mat was asked to be one of several Oklahoman's who have major accomplishments in athletics to represent the state. Not bad for a BMX'er whom will be among Olympians, NBA, MBL and NFL stars.
Battle in da club. The name suggests an ordinary bar fight in a some low price alley club, with more flying bottles of beer than women. But this Battle in da club was nothing like that. This was the third leg of the flatland only BMX contest tour that is held in a new club every time! This time around, the circus hit the town of Nurnberg: the Mach One club, to be precise. Michiel Verberg, judge, and Hoite Polkamp, MC together with Francis, made the trip from Amsterdam to attend this flatland extravaganza.
We're working on a new FATBMX competition at the moment and have Carhartt involved. Better stay focused because it's going to be a good one. The FLAT TV contest is now officially over. The right answer to the question (The producer of FLATtv is Renato from Holland, he has a 14-month old son. What is his name?) is: Pelle. The following persons can expect issue 8 of FLATtv in the mail:
1. John Craft (Omaha, USA) 2. Justin Bastiaanssen (Breda, The Netherlands) 3. Ilyas Zuhair (Malyasia)
In related FLAT tv news: FLATtv used to be availible only on dvd in PAL format so it was very popular only in Europe, leaving American and Japanese flatland riders out of the FLATtv experience. Now this has changed because FLATtv has a distributor for Japan and the US who now produces FLATtv in NTSC format dvds: Flyhi Bmx!
