Top BMX Street Riders Gang Up For Jersey Battle

Santa Monica, CA – October 18, 2007 - The top names in BMX street will
gather in Asbury Park, New Jersey to battle on a course made for the
truly down and dirty. On November 4th, teams of BMXers from coast to
coast and across the pond will all descend upon the ruins of the Asbury
Park Casino – a relic of the dilapidated seaside town. What may be an
eyesore to some is the perfect spot for the street dogs to get gritty on
obstacles that will be brought in – including a 54 foot articulated New
York City bus with rails, an old taxi cab and quite fittingly, Jersey

Athletes will compete in teams of four and hit the course in a jam
format. The riders will be scored individually, and the team whose
combined score of the four members is the highest will win the cash
prize. There will also be a Zoo York best trick prize, where locals and
the pros will go head to head on the obstacles to see who can land the
biggest banger. In partnership with Zoo York and Animal Bikes, there
will be over $10,000 in prize money handed out. This is the one casino
where you’re guaranteed to walk away with more in your pockets than you
started, as long as you show up and gamble.

Team Animal: Nigel Sylvester, Mike Brennan, Tom White, Jared Washington
Team Zoo York: Edwin De La Rosa, Vinnie Sammon, Ruel “Wormz” Smith,
