BMX Team Report 08-16-04

Aug 17 2004 / Tuesday

Mike Escamilla hasnt been doing any riding since he hurt his wrist in Cologne, Germany at the WorldҒs. This past week, he instead went surfing with his daughter Haley and, unfortunately, had to endure the new Alien vs. Predator movie. Mike will be riding again this week in hopes of preparing himself for the MSS contest coming up next weekend in Sacramento. Rooftops birthday was on August 8. To celebrate, you should go buy the etnies Rooftop 3, in stores now.
Taj Mihelich and his girlfriend returned home to Austin--Taj with a broken rib and his girl minus some teeth. These injuries were received in the first couple of days of a BMX getaway at Woodward West camp in California. Taj will be readying himself and getting fit for the upcoming Metro Jam in Vancouver at the beginning of September. In the meantime, he will be working hard and keeping the ball rolling over at Terrible One.
Ruben Alcantara, Joe Rich, Sandy Carson and Spanish shredder Sergio Layos are over in South Africa doing some demos. They all competed in a contest last week, also. Sergio ended up in 1st, Ruben in 2nd, Sandy got 6th and Joe placed 8th. Ruben has been hanging out with Sergio on one coast and the other guys have been on the other side of the country, both groups doing demonstrations respectively. Ruben's been getting some surfing in, sometimes twice a day.All the guys got to ride some trails and also some concrete parks. Ruben recently received samples of his revised etnies signature shoe and is stoked to be riding in them. He canҒt wait to get the next samples. Check them out at the etnies booth at the Interbike trade show.
Jamie Bestwick returned home from hanging out in California with his lovely wife Kerry and competing in the X Games. He is currently shooting photos with BMX photographer extraordinaire Manu Sanz for Cream magazine out on the East Coast.Today, they will be hitting-up some trails in Minersville, Pennsylvania to do some more shooting. Jamie, like Rooftop, also put himself through seeing Alien vs. Predator this past weekend.
Dave Freimuth is on what he and Kevin Porter like to call a Baco vacationӔ. Dave picked up Mike Ardelean and Aaron Bostrom and will also be picking up Chad Degroot, and Manu Sanz from Cream magazine to head up to Jellystone campground, where the guys will do some hanging out, river rafting and also get some riding in at the skatepark that was just recently built there. Dave and his wife Pattie took in a pre-season Packers game this past week. Look out for a story on the Baco vacation in an upcoming issue of Cream.
Josh Stricker finally got back to Philly from Rhode Island and is expecting to head out to California for his good friend Shaun Butler's wedding this coming weekend. Last weekend, Josh and Brian Wizmerski went to a show where Bo Didley, Nancy Sinatra, The Romantics, New York Dolls and even Iggy Pop played. He was stoked, to say the least, and according to Josh, Iggy Pop is still an animal on stage (albeit a very old animal).
John Heaton did some shows this past week with his friend Max Vincent in Ottawa and will be doing some more this week in Toronto at some expo. John played some golf and didnt feel he was getting hurt enough, so he played some hockey. On Sunday, John went to his sisterҒs baby shower.
Garret Byrnes is home babying his wrist and being spoiled by his girlfriend, Crystal. He has been scooting around on his skateboard and doing a little cycling on his beach cruiser.
Nate Wessel has been out at Woodward East for the last week or so, getting some riding in after returning from Baltimore, where he hung out with the very injured Colin Winkleman. Nate should be receiving some prototype gloves he designed for Fox racing any day now, and is hoping they turned out how he wanted them to. Nate will be super busy soon with ramp building jobs. He has one in the works for Red Bull for a mountain bike streetstyle contest called the Red Bull Bike Battle.
