Throwh Catfish and Crandall on the bus and we've got quite a mess on our hands...

-Road Fools 15 will be shipping on Oct 3rd. This trip was amazing… Road Fools 15 hit the road and traveled across the Midwest including stops in Chicago, Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor, Detroit, Cincinnati, Kokomo, and Ft Wayne. Lots of street on this trip...amazing riding went down and it did not even rain every day—we just went to the emergency room every day. It all worked out in the end, these guys are professionals. The ER does not stop the session. Bonus sections include: Bails, Day 0 (Scrap skatepark), Tattoos with Catfish and Crandall, bonus riding, and knuckle game.
Riders on Road Fools 15 include:
-The Gary Young Props Interview is doomed. After Walter Drove from Seattle to Film Gary in native San Diego, the first trick they tried to film, poor Gary broke his Wrist. Mind you, we did the interview questions 1 year ago and were planning on redoing everything this year in Las Vegas at Interbike. Let’s shoot for 2008 guys.
-Props is finishing up production on 13 new episodes for FUEL TV. Look for the shows to air in early 2007 and include tons of sections from Props, Road Fools and Mega Tour. Hosted by Steve Crandall, after watching you'll have the urge to crack open a cold PBR.
-Props Mega Tour 6 is looking to hit the road in early spring and head to North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. Some of the teams on this tour are Team Woodward, Albes Mailorder, and Riff Raff BMX.
-Tobias Wicke has a full profile in an upcoming Props release. The entire interview was done in Germany so let’s hops our translations are ok. Tobias is amazing so I think the riding will speak for itself. Tobias will be on the upcoming Road Fools Rock-n-Roll Tour Presented by Fender Guitars.
