Welcome back to another edition of Monthly Dirt. I just spent the day at The Red Bull City Scramble in downtown Auckland cheering on Kiwi legend Chris Birch. The sunshine and 15'000 - 20'000 spectators turned up for an awesome day of entertainment. The course was technical, challenging and brilliant but the riders made it look easy. At least one rider fell into the ocean after messing up the water-bridge crossing which went down as a crowd pleaser. Take a lap with Chris as he explains it on the trot.. Red Bull City Scramble

I encourage you to have your say on any of the pages that have a submission form at the bottom of them. It's easy to do and it helps make this site more interesting and dynamic for everyone. If you want it published as a page you have to make sure your story has a bit of guts to it though, two sentences won't cut it sorry.

If you're not overly confident when it comes to swinging some wrenches on your bike - you should seriously consider The Garage Manual download. I've created it to be as clear and precise as possible with step by step photos.

I finished off last month by saying how excited I was about going to watch round 3 of the New Zealand Nationals.. well, it was a cracker of a day with plenty of crashes and balls-to-the-wall racing. Ben Townley took the overall win for the day with his smoooooth riding. Here's a little something I caught on my GoPro. 2012 MX Nationals Round 3
