Al Dimino of BMX Invasion sent in two clips of himself together with a flyer of a contest that he is putting on this weekend. Info on the event can be found on the FATBMX event calendar.
Next to riding BMX Al also plays the drums and he's damn good at it. Looks like Taj Mihelich is willing to jam with Al on his bass guitar at some point. All they need is a rider who plays lead guitar and a singer to form a true BMX band.
Here are the links to the movies:
KGB press release 1.1.2005
Alex Jumelin has joined the KGB team. First talking about Alex joining KGB was done earlier 2004 and finally, end of 2004 KGB and Alex Jumelin came to an agreement. This is a big step in the sport of flatland.
Kuoppa and Gomez are more than happy about this movement, they have always enjoyed riding in the same jam circle with Alex and now it will be even more interesting since Alex rides for KGB.

The new year is upon us. We've survived another year of FATBMX and we're not slowing down. Starting from 1-1-05 we'll be having a new web design. Jos Wissink and Rolf Thijssen have been working hard on the new set-up and it's going to be killer.
- Alain Ballering will be riding a St Martin Darwin frame from now on, he is so stoked he can't sleep anymore and threw in a party when he picked up his frame at Paul's Boutique.
- Zaandam skatepark is building a giant wooden pool, hope they are not bikehaters like Area 51.
- PURE BMX Distribution is forming its Factory team: Remco Elgersma (FBM), Michiel van Turnhout (FIT), Bas Brouwer (Flybikes), Dennis Keunen (Proper/Shadow), Michael v/d Lee (UGP), Riccardo Moes (SNAFU), and looking for a S&M and WTP rider..........
We announced earlier that Ronnie Chalk is no longer the BMX TM over at DC. Then we got the following press release: Vista, CAâ€¦DC Shoes, Inc. announced today it has hired Dwayne Taylor as DC’s new BMX Team Manager. In his new role, Dwayne is responsible for maintaining strong relationships with the 11 riders on DC’s BMX roster, including Dave Mirra, Robbie Miranda and newcomer Corey Bohan. He will also be providing current information on DC riders in all DC communications and will be help in directing the BMX team’s marketing efforts. In DC related news, Kim Boyle has left the company.
The back cover of the latest Bicycle Retailer magazine had a Torker ad that made me sad. Torker was once one of the coolest brands on the BMX circuit with riders such as the King brothers and Jason Jensen and later powerhouse Tommy Brackens and Hollywood Mike Miranda.
The twin top tube actually made it a favorite among freestyle riders and Bob Haro based his first freestyle bike on Torker's design. What made me cringe is the fact that the Torker name is now being used to sell Unistar Unicycles, Scooters, Beach Cruisers and Trikes with not one BMX bike in their program. What happened here?
- The Dorkin' in York videos back in the day were all classics. They showed the latest in flatland riding from the Plywood Hoods which included Kevin Jones and Mark Eaton. It was tough getting your hands on the videos in the early days of vcr recorders. The NTSC tapes did not work well with the PAL system and once you did find someone who had a NTSC video recorder (often American based soldiers), the trick was to video tape the TV and record it on PAL. Mark Eaton has now released all the videos (10 in total) in a DVD box (it has 3 Dorkin' in York DVD's and 1 bonus DVD). It has all the history and is a must-have for everyone who rides flatland.
