Pro Freestyle faced some bad weather in Heerlen this past weekend. The BMX Street contest could not take place because part of the course was super slippery. One rail however dried up and the grey part of the course was semi-dry. Instead of doing nothing at all, it was decided to start a 30 minute rail battle at 21:30hr for those who felt like it. Leon Hoppe (GER) didn't waste no time and kicked off the session with plenty of bangers and kept going. Niels Mertens (BEL) 360'd up and 360'd down after grinding the rail. Anthony Perrin (FRA) was there to defend his Pro Freestyle Street winning streak and delivered over-tooth ups and a barspin ice-pick to 180 off. Maikel the Streetmaker had the crowd on its feet with his first rail attempts. The vibe was good in Heerlen despite the less than perfect riding conditions.
Stay tuned for 2018 Pro Freestyle news. The first date has been announced already: 18-21 May 2018. Back on the beach of Scheveningen. Best location.
