Today there was no need to travel to a foreign country to attend a BMX event. The Helm Trails Jam was scheduled for Saturday and they could not have picked a better day. No wind, sunshine and 25+ degrees lead to smiles on the faces of those who took the effort to come to Helmond Noord to ride a session on best trails in the Netherlands. The rollercoaster, middellijn and Table line were all in top shape. The water they needed after some heavy riding was taken care of by several visits to the water container. The music played out loud and the vibe was chill. With visitors from Croatia, Germany, Belgium and of course America! (Sem Kok was present) several languages were spoken. Once again the bikes brought people together for a good time and the locals could enjoy the action by watching down from the bridge.
Sem Kok was ruling and if he had received a 'Full Pull sticker' after every lap, you would at least have 50 of them. The trails were in perfect shape, hard and grippy and the flow was there. Jari Roggeveen had a rough time making it through all the lines which indicated they're not that easy. While some enjoyed the flowy table line others hit up the medium level Middellijn and tried to make it to the very end. All afternoon riders were waiting for a run on top of the container at the Helm Trails simply enjoying the riding that was going on.
Another good one in the books. Thanks to Dimitris Araouzos and Dennis Keunen for the trails love.
