Today was a day filled with MX. First of all the weather has been getting shitty and I spent more time digging at the trails on Saturday than I got to ride. The rain last night didn't help either so off to the Stoppelcross in Boekel I went. Paul, Pieter Does, Harm van Brussel, Jurgen Meyer were out there representing BMX in the mud. After one heat it was time for home to watch the Red Bull Knock Out beach race live and now I'm watching the FMX show at the Bercy SX while I type this. Last night one of the riders pulled a barspin flip on a modified bike. Go do your Youtube search for that one.

The Stoppelcross season has started. The first race was held in Handel and saw quite a few BMX-ers and friends on the starting gate in the several classes.Bjorn Wijnants was hella fast on his 250, didn't even know he rode some motocross. Jurgen Meyer and Harm van Brussel had some problems in the beginning of the MX1 hobby final and worked their way up to the front but got stuck somewhere around 15th place. These races become a mess after a couple of laps and it's hard to keep track.
After a hard crash in Albequerque busted up the arm of JEFFERY UPSHAW, the bones were X-rayed and set, and Upshizzle hopped on a plane back to Ohio Monday morning; rather than the scheduled drive with JASON CARNE$ to Nellis for the big NBL season opener. Back home, doctors had a look and Jeff went in for surgery Thursday morning to have 2 plates and screws put in. One of the bones had been set good and wouldn’t need any plates, while the other bone would. Jeff said he was told it would be a 4 to 6 week healing process, and that he is hoping to return in time for the NBL Christmas Classic. “I always seem to do better after some time off,” he said, “because I miss BMX so much.”
