BMX Team Report 11-19-03

Nov 19 2003 / Wednesday

Mike Escamilla
has been at Woodward West for the last few days in serious training with living legend and good friend Dave Osato for the upcoming LG Action Sports event in Pomona, California this week. He has also been on Osatos golf schedule, playing daily as well as attending hockey games Canadian-style. Mike also got a new truck and the Samurai video is going to be available in two weeks from TIP Distribution.

Taj Mihelich
finished filming his etnies commercial for the 2003 year-end issue of Props
video magazine. He also shot photos with Jeff Zielinski for a double-sided poster (etnies' Joe Rich is on the other side) in an upcoming issue of Ride BMX
magazine. The BBQ that Taj put on at the T1 ramp was fun. Slayer played in town this past weekend and
Taj was there to witness the satanic insanity. As usual, he has been also riding the ramp at T1 and working more than he should. Taj heads out to California on Tuesday November 18 to attend the LG Action Sports event in Pomona on November 19-20.

Joe Rich
got done finishing an edit of etnies team mate Taj Mihelich's etnies commercial for the 2003 year-end issue of Props
video magazine. He also shot photos with Ride
magazine's Jeff Zielinski for a double-sided poster due out in a future issue of said magazine. Joe also rode his dirt bike this past week with some friends and has also been riding the ramp at T1, the skatepark of Austin and working at the office a bunch.

Ruben Alcantara
has been enjoying his time at home in Spain riding with friends, spending time with his family and just basically relaxing. HeҒs heading out to Austin on November 17, then onto California the next day to attend the LG Action Sports event in Pomona, where he will be competing. Ruben's shoe on etnies is coming soon. So keep an eye out.

John Heaton
has been riding at the X Dreams park in Rochester, New York, where hes in training for this week's LG Action Sports event in Pomona,
California. In fact, John will be in California 'til the end of the month. He has also been playing Hockey lately and claims that he hasnҒt been fighting and even scored a couple of goals. A yearly ritual for most Northeast Canadians is setting your car up for winter by changing out your good Summer wheels for crappy winter wheels, which is how John spent his Sunday.

Nate Wessel
is in England building ramps at the Seventies warehouse for etnies teammate Ian Morris, who just so happens to be the Seventies company owner.

Sandy Carson
is home in Austin enjoying a decent level of normality in his new apartment, He has been, as always, working on Dig
magazine, riding as much as he can at the T1 offices and the 9th street trails. Sandy is still working a little on getting footage for the federal video and recording some of his own music.

Josh Stricker
has been slowly but surely moving his and his girl's belongings into their new place in New York from Philly. He went on a short road trip up to Providence, Rhode Island this past week with some friends and rode Skater Island, as well as some other parks, and is currently enjoying the surprisingly good weather to its fullest by riding trails with his crew. Josh has also been riding with etnies teammate Edwin Delarosa in the city.

Garrett Byrnes
is still down with a broken wrist and wearing a cast. He goes to the doctor this Wednesday to get X-rays and to see if it started healing. If yes, then he gets a new cast and its all good. If no, then heҒll take the cast off and start riding his bike again until he has to get surgery on it. Besides playing the waiting game, Garrett has been taking pictures and skating a little. Hes planning on going to Austin this coming Friday to hang with etnies team rider Joe Rich and friends.

Edwin Delarosa
has been chilling at home in New York. The weather has been decent, so he has been enjoying riding outdoors with etnies teammate Josh Stricker in the city. He has been finishing up his interview for Ride UK
magazine. Edwin got a ticket for riding his bike on the sidewalk right outside his apartment in New York on Sunday. He may be moving to Brooklyn in the near future. Edwin's wrist is feeling good enough for him to ride lately. In fact, he is going to Vegas this coming week for Red Bull to do some TV stuff, but is unsure what itҒs all about. Any opportunity to go to Vegas is worth taking.
