It felt great to race again after our winter break! My results could be better, but I’m really happy about the way I rode on my bike… Two weeks ago the European season kicked of in Zolder, Belgium. They transformed the normal BMX track to a big SX track, because the World Champs will be there in 2015… Together with my team I went to Zolder for a training session before this race. Non of us liked the track, because most jumps were way to big and not really smooth. We told the club and track builder, so they made some changes before round 1&2 of the

The Wild Night Contest went down in Lille (FR) on Friday night. This invitation only contest always has a nice line up of some of Europe's top riders. With Alex Coleborn, Jack Clark, Daniel Tünte, Tom Justice and JB Peytavit this year wasn't any different. A roster of 12 riders and a knockout contest style for the top 8 after qualifiers kept the French crowd entertained 'till well, after midnight.

The inaugural round of the UK 2014 vert series kicked off on March 29th at Blackpool's .... Skatepark, who, in addition to having a functional vert ramp, were kind enough to let us BMXers loose on their amazing wooden full pipe for a one off free for all jam session. Spring was definitely in the air, and many familiar faces from the 2013 series made the pilgrimage up North, some enticed by a day at the pleasure beach, or a bit of sociology research on a typical Saturday night chock full of hen and stag dos around Blackpool Tower.
