That kinda sucks for Rytell, deffinately one of my favourite riders (at least when he was brake/pegless) but hopefully he'll be able to pick up a new spono soon enough - back to Twenty? Subrosa as they're looking for anew pro after Eli 'retired' and he's already on Shadow? Gonna be interested in this....

Worst. Story.Ever.
They seem to being trying, or at least wanting, to do it right however which I can respect but with a story like that I can only expect the worst. People should really start to realise the BMX and Skateboarding aren't 'cool' so really don't make a good movie basis. Will I see it? NO.

STOKED - Coalition are my 2nd favourite (behind The Shadow Conspiracy) parts company so I'm glad they're still going!! They're run by some of the nicest guys I've ever talked to so am glad everything has worked out!!

That 360-Can-Can was gorgeous!!! I don't usually comment on vids here but that trick deserves recognition!!

I remember seeing thsi guy in RideUK #117 (I have them to hand... I'm also pretty sure he had a Low Profle in DigBMX too....) and you can tell that he was good but damn, that stuff was insane!! Can't believe he's only sponsored by Oakley...

I don't usually do this kinda thing but meh...beats revision for Uni....

Jeremy Hrabal - for me it has to be. Why? Have you read his interview in DigBMX#066? Seriously, that is just sick! The guy's tough as nails and does some of the gnarliest shit out there. He embodies BMX for me - pure, unabated passion and love, willing to sacrafice himself for what he believes in and taking it to a new level. Don't believe me? Scour the magzines and web for pics/vids of him and just think how nuts it is...the guy is GOOD!!

Sure you have Hoffman, the man, the myth, the fucking legend that he is and I respect him beyond words for what he has accomplished and done. You have Napolitan who does some of the craziest stuff out there which I personally struggle to get my head around. Then there's Kimbrough who is too tech for words and (sounds like) one of the nicest, humblest people. Mark P. deserves a mention as well from me - I love trails and have watched his video bike check so many times just to see him destroy his personal dirt, I can't wait for a full part from him.

But for my Jeremy Hrabal takes it - I respect him so much for going out there, balls on the line, deadman-attitude and insane skills despite getting so little recognition from the media/community - it shows so much about his personality and why he rides and to me that says more than anything, not least what I can put here. And I haven't even begun to go into all he has done for his local community and fellow riders...
