Our 3rd Annual Pumpkin Carving contest has begun! Email us your pumpkin pics before halloween and we will upload them all to our facebook page. The pic with the most likes by Nov 20th is the winner! The only rule is that when you take a pic of the pumpkin you must write your name on something with the year 2012 and have that in the pic. This way we know that you are submitting an original. You can use just your first name, your stuntride forum name, hell, you could put your entire website or facebook url, we don’t care as long as it identifies you.
We have some awesome prizes this year: An Eton RUKUS, which is an awesome solar powered bluetooth music player. A custom Halloween clutch lever from RSC. A tail saver from Zeus Armor. Some T-Shirts from Self Killers. A custom stunt gas tank fabrication from Graveyard Fab. and prize packs from Guru Stunts, XDL and Stuntride!

We have sent emails to all subscribers, made a post about this on here, posted on facebook, posted on our forums. Yet a few still seem to have questions. So here it is. Stuntride Magazine and other Stuntride related business was halted over 18 months ago due to a trademark dispute over the name “Stuntride”. We eventually won that dispute and now have our own United States trademark number.
Now that we are back in the game, we have launched our store and revealed the cover of Issue 11 of Stuntride Magazine. It is at the printers now and will be shipping soon. To boost awareness, we posted a deal on Facebook (the same place where we have answered all questions about the mag) and a few questions arose.
Here are some of the actual questions and answers; We will add new Q’s and A’s as we get them. Post them on our facebook page! http://www.facebook.com/stuntride

We’ve been through a long 18 month trademark dispute that put a pause on virtually all Stuntride business except the website.. (magazine, shirts and other merch..) If you keep up with on facebook, you may have noticed that we recently won our trademark fight.. and you also may have noticed that we never had the facebook vanity name /stuntride.
The name was squatted on by a young man and it has been very successful, without being active. Undoubtbly because of the brand we have built for years. Well now the last piece of our puzzle is complete. We finally recieved email confirmation from facebook today. They have taken the name from the squatter and released it to us.
So please, keep up with the REAL stuntride (TM.) LOL https://www.facebook.com/Stuntride
Adam and the crew over at Revzilla.com contacted us and said that they wanted to do a giveaway for our forum members here on Stuntride. When we asked what kind of giveaway, they said “We dont care, make it fun!” So we took to the forums and asked what you guys wanted, the resounding pick was “Posting pics of injuries.” So with that being said, we present to you, the “Revzilla Road Rash 4 Cash Contest!”

We have gotten some news on the 2012 XDL Event Schedule. Even though info has been very hard to get and harder to confirm, a tweet by the XDL Staff today has lead us to believe that something we heard about a month ago may be true.
It says “Our 2012 schedule is almost confirmed, but just fyi all event dates will be in June, July, August. RT and pass it on, thanks!” via @XDLShow
Back in January a little bird (not twitter) told us that the XDL schedule was being compacted into the late summer to accomodate a reality show filming schedule. And that the Monterey and Indianapolis Moto GP events would go on as usual. Obviously it is too late in the year for Daytona Bike Week and it would be too hot to go back to Scottsdale AZ during those months, so we can assume those events are out. We also know that the SuperSpeedway in Nashville was closed, so this seems to eliminate the usual May Nashville stop.
So with those things up in the air, we wonder if XDL may be going to some more northerly lattitudes and will XDL return to its home in LA? Well the economy has also forced the closure of the Irwindale Speedway, but The Queen Mary in Long Beach has undergone another ownership change and we are told that its parking lots are looking nice and fresh nowadays.
The guys at adrenaline crew have stepped up and produced a streetbike stunt game for iphone and android applications, heres the info. Check out our facebook page where we will be giving away a couple of free download codes for iphone users
Adrenaline Crew is known for their over the top drunken antics and over all sport bike demolition. Their DVD series is well known world wide but after the DVD industry lost its footing due to the economy and illegal bootlegging they had to make a quick change to capture the next “big thing”. Aside from there 2012 Helmet and glove line under the AC brand Kenny and the Crew decided to try their hand at the mobile app phenomenon that is sweeping the nation, no, make that the world. Kenny took the year off from touring with the Crew to learn how to program and develop a game for iPhone and Android devices. “It took almost a full year, but we finally have a product that we can ship you” he says, “Many updates, new moves to come though, its not like a DVD that when you ship it off to the presses your done, with apps you can continually mold your game to fit what your fans and friends want, it is truly awseome!”.
The object of the game is similar to that of the epic Road Rash series in that you race and can fight other riders for position. Where this takes it to the next level is when you hit people off, you can do stunts. Not just a wheelie or hand jester, we are talking full on highchair wheelies and endos, flamingos and even spreaders. As you play you can unlock more characters and as Kenny tells us, there will be a lot of familiar faces popping up, not just the Adrenaline Crew riders, as well weapons and cutting edge software that will let you use your own image to play as yourself!
With the AC boys always in the front of “whats hot” be sure to not only support their effort but be prepared for the future of gaming!
