BMX Team Report 1-5-04

Jan 6 2004 / Tuesday

Mike Escamilla
hung-out at Nixon watches New Year's Eve party up in LA. Hes still out with a broken ass, cuz he didnҒt get it checked out. So, he really doesnt know what is or isnҒt wrong with his bum. All he does know is that he cant sit straight for any short period of time. Mike hung-out with etnies teammate Edwin Delarosa this past weekend on a photo shoot for Edwin's upcoming etnies ads. The Samurai video is selling well and Mike is going to start writing a book about his travels and exploits.

Taj Mihelich
has been getting back into riding vert a little more lately. He has been going over to the GuteҒs ramp (the one he helped raise money to repair a while back). Taj has also been riding the 9th Street trails a bunch, as well as having some weird sessions with some girls who were in town for a Girls of Freestyle tour this past week. There were thirteen girls riding the T1 ramp with
him. He said it was kinda weird being the only dude on deck. Along with riding the ramp, Taj put on a BBQ for the girls. He took a lot of the holiday season off from the office to get some time to himself.

Ruben Alcantara
is still at home in Spain enjoying quality family time. He did go on a short trip to the Alps with some friends, where he also received some stitches in his head from a fall on a scooter. Ruben has been riding his motorcycle quite a bit and gone through three pairs of handlebars from crashing so much on it. In fact, it's being repaired as we speak. Ruben has also been riding his BMX bike quite a lot, lately. He plans to be back in the U.S. in the middle of February.

Joe Rich
spent the tail end of December in Pennsylvania with his family and friends. Just before New Year's, he flew back home to Austin and got in some badly missed saddle time. He was back on his bike riding the 9th Street trails, as well as riding and BBQing with the Girls of Freestyle at the T1 ramp.

Dave Freimuth
spent New Year's Eve at home in Appleton, Wisconsin
freezing his nuts off and enjoying the festivities that go along with New Years. The only saving grace to the cold is that he now has an awesome, brand-new indoor skatepark to ride, Area 51. Dave left for Puerto Rico on Monday, January 5 and plans to be gone for a week.

Edwin Delarosa
spent New Year's Eve in Times Square watching the ball drop with the millions of other revelers. On Friday January 2, Edwin flew out to California to shoot photos for an upcoming etnies ad, which is due out soon. Edwin left Monday January 5 for New
York. He will be home one evening before leaving to Puerto Rico to join the Fit Bikes team to shoot for their next video that will be produced by 411.

Nate Wessel
spent Christmas down in Florida with his girl, and for New Year's Eve, he was back home to Cleveland to hang with family and friends. Nate has been filming for a Chenga World video that should be out mid-year. He also helped out his favorite band and good friends Mushroom Head by hooking them up with some footage for a video they are working on. So, look out for Wessel to be on MTV in the near future. Nate is also planning on heading up to Vancouver to help Jay Miron put some bowl corners in his warehouse ramp.

Brian Terada
gets his driver's license back in about ten days, which will be a blessing, because hes been getting cabin fever up there in Camarillo. Brian did come down to shoot photos with etnies teammate Edwin Delarosa in the LA area this past weekend. Besides getting some riding in, Brian has been working at the bike store in Camarillo, building bikes and doing repairs.

Josh Stricker
has been out in Southern California for the last two weeks to hang with his family and friends, enjoying some of the nice weather as well as seeing his good friends for New Year's. Josh headed out to Austin on Monday, January 5, where he will be for the next two or so weeks, depending on how much of a good time he has.

Garrett Byrnes
was at home in New Jersey for New Year's, hanging with family and enjoying some rest and relaxation. HeҒs been planning a trip down to Austin for a while and had previously thought about jumping on a train to check things out down that route. But, after putting a little more effort into investigating what all it would involve, he figured it might just be better to drive. Garrett has also been riding a local indoor park near his house against doctor's wishes (he still has a broken wrist).
