10 / 13 / 2006 update:

Big wheels keep rollin'
This is a long overdue bear-hug type thanks to the guys and gals who are involved with Metro Mountain Bikers, the Milwaukee area mountain bike club that constructed the original cross country mountain bike trails at Crystal Ridge ... and ultimately blazed a trail (pun alert #1) for BMX as a natural evolution at Crystal Ridge. Now they've taken things a step further. Metro Mountain Bikers are helping Milwaukee BMX navigate our way through the City of Franklin planning / approval process. We sure owe a lot to Marty Weigel and his crew over at MMB ... and, it's a safe bet that they'll have me huffin' and puffin' my way through their single track next summer. Not to mention, it's almost a lock tight cinch that they just recruited a couple of new volunteers for their major events at Crystal Ridge.

ABA Photo of the Day ...
The cover of the new issue of BMX'er is super rad. I'm not sure who the young Redman rider is on the left of this photo ... but, that cat is going to get some sort of backside pump.

We need MORE POWER !!!
TO-John had plans to meet up with Craig from Pro Electric to get a quote generated (pun #2 -- oh, I'm on a hot streak today!) for running electrical lines to the start hill and possibly run to some boxes out on the track. John, we probably need at least one 220v line for the compressor !!!

Around the area this weekend ...
Jake's track building crew is currently at work moving dirt in the barn to form the 2006 - 2007 Walworth County BMX Indoor track. I'm going to try like crazy to swing by there this weekend to get a couple of digital images to share with ya'll right here ... keep your eyes peeled for updates.

Rockford BMX has a single pointer scheduled for Sunday afternoon ... sign-up's close at noon and racing begins ASAP. For more information, including directions to the track ... check out
