    The NBL ran a Bike Building contest in between motos, here's the winning team, Felt's, Joey Albright and Kendall Polis. Reality TV Show Man / J&R BMX Pro, Jason Bennett and his co builder, Joey Krohn. Nice Job! The winning crew, from left, Kendall, Intense's Pete Dylewski, Joey A, Joey K and NBL guy, Justin Travis.    
    F - A - S - T! It's going to be SO much fun to watch Alise Post race regularly in the Elite Women's class. 2 wins in Jr. Hard Chargin', Amanda Geving showed up at the Classic in Redman Factory gear, nice pick for both. Speakin' of 'pick ups'. 'Fast Phil' Delizia showed up 'New' too. In Factory Felt stuff! It must be something in the water in Latvia, but this guy, Arturs Matisons, showcases the classic BMX style that makes them winners.
