Lots of people are disappearing to Barcelona to enjoy the predictable weather and marble plazas. Paul “Man” Sylvester is out and about letting his metal legs absorb some serious poundings. Last seen in the aforementioned city, he’s in the process of working on four video parts at once. Franklin Stephens, apart from going mad and looking more and more like a farmer every day, is filming hard with Dan Magee (maker of Blueprint‘s Waiting For The World) to complete his section for Dan’s new up and coming UK video.

Jam in London, he proceeded to show us his ability to smoke twenty cigarettes in two hours¿amazing. You may have had the pleasure of meeting James Woodley. If you have, you’ll never forget the little bastard. He has just returned from a trip to Yankee Doodle with Mr. Scott Bourne and Howard Cooke. James seems to have a penchant for Liverpool and is refusing to go back to Birmingham. It’s raining hard and England is in the grips of a warm, but damp winter.

Aside from taking care of his newborn baby, Mike Vallely obtained permission from the nice people at Hurly to use both their giant jump ramps to possibly shoot his next ad. They can take the ramps to any location, so Jody Morris has been driving around looking for places that could be good to shoot Mike’s second shoe ad.

After the short New Deal trip a couple of weeks ago, Rob G. went to Texas to help his ankles heal. Being home forces him to want to skate all the time, not letting his injuries heal properly. He’ll be home at the end of the month.

Hopefully, the leg injury isn’t a serious one.

Chris Lambert is aiming for either the first part in the Expedition video or maybe the last part. It all depends on what he can roll away from in the next couple of weeks. The filming part of the video was suppose to be done a while ago, and in fact, some teamriders have their parts completed and edited already. Chris has been turning down traveling opportunities to finish up on his video part¿he has a couple of last minute tricks he would like to add to his list.

In March (or when the ground thaws) an outdoor all-cement semoney now that we have sponsors like Pork Farms.
