Airing Sunday, February 11 at 9:00 pm Eastern Time (6:00 pm Pacific Time), and re-airing another seven times during the week, BMX pro Corey Bohan stars in FUEL TV’s original 30-minute series “Firsthand.” In this episode, Bohan heads to Whistler B.C. for the prestigious Red Bull Elevation dirt jumping contest. Next, the three-time X Games gold medalist goes on an old school road trip to hit as many parks as possible from Whistler to Portland, Oregon. In Portland, Corey and his crew session Burnside and the exclusive Salem Trails. The Australian-born rider then returns to his current home for some surf and to show off his favorite So Cal riding spots.
Man, you gotta love the BMX mags. We got so many of them this week tha it's hard to make it through them all. That's when it's handy when RIDEBMX makes a special 2007 Photo issue with over 45 of the 116 pages filled with "Out-of-this-world" BMX photography. We have to say, the pics are damn nice and if you're about to put some new wallpaper on your clean walls, my advise is to spend 4 bucks on the April issue, instead of a roll of off-white wall paper. Edwin Delarosa gets the cover and he's bringing purple back to the streets where Nigel Sylvester is doing his part too to make purple a popular colour among 4 peg brakeless street riders. The Up Front section has all kind of little news bits from team changes to Junk in the Trunk to How-to not be a pro BMX-er. Diversions is the VDO section and Brian Castillo answers some questions On the Clock and Ralph Sinisi explains a bit about the Animal Road Trip DVD.
Henrique Castro, a Brasilian BMXer with a lot of flow. He is always seeking his flow style, sometimes gets bored when some friends talk about lips tricks, hahaha, this guy is a kind of direction which Brasilians bmxers follow. He's a nice guy who makes us very proud, and gives you a good feeling when you session with him. Henrique is a video magazines addict, knows all the names and teams, bike parts...
BMX girl in bikini. Hmmm, not bad. We found these pics in a bucket somewhere on the internet. In fact Justin did, and sent them to us. If they belong to you, let us know and we'll give you photo credit. If they're not meant to be spread on the internet through the FATBMX pin up page, let us know and we'll take them off. Until then, check 'em out.
- Contrary to what the last two welcome ads we’ve ran report, Davey Watson is no longer part of the DB program (he’s now riding for Federal). We love Davey very much and he’ll be a friend of DB’s and of our rider’s as long as he’d like to be, but we encouraged him to take the Federal offer. Having riders outgrow our budget and move on to greener pastures is nothing new to us, but no one has ever done this as fast as Davey did.
Correct me if I'm wrong but we're in the second month of the year 2007. 2008 is not really around the corner but it looks like Kink has everyone beat with their 2008 complete bikes. That's right, complete bikes from Kink Bike Co. We received the following info from Kink's product manager and photos, spec and pricing of their 2008 line.
Today I have something to announce that all of us here at Kink are really excited about. First though, I would like to talk about what has been going on around here at Kink.
Tobias Wicke came down to Paul's Boutique unexpectedly last night. It was a nice suprise as he brought Ben Hennon, Andy Zeiss and Thomas Fritscher with him. We planned on taking some pictures but he was wearing the wrong hat and the bike was hidden somewhere in the car between the two other bikes and they were actually on their way to The Promise Park in Heerlen. Next thing you know wethepeople's Rob Harrison comes through with loads of pics of the bike and a few details on what parts Tobias runs.
It doesn't get much better than this. You buy your copy of FreedomBMX and you now get a Circle DVD for free! Okay the retail price has been bumped up to € 5,80 in Germany and Austria (or € 8,10 abroad) but still, it's a fair price and when it comes with a DVD, it's a steal. What does Freedom #73 bring? The format is huge and it's Robert Kroenig who gets the cover with a lazy one-handed toe-jam on some concrete quarterpipe obstacle. Fuzzy Hall gets the inside cover. He might be off Mongoose but he's still on VANS. You can make a video clip out of the contents page. Cut the pics out, put them on a stack in the right order, put some staples on the left side and flip through the booklet. Let me know how fast that 50-50 grind to crooked grind looks. If you have a happening BMX scene, you will probably have someone reporting about it in the news section. The Bcrossionale receives a report but you gotta have the video to really feel it.
