On sunday etnies officially opened the etnies Outdoor Trainings Facility right next to their EMEA headoffice on the houthavens in Amsterdam. The etnies OTF brings some fresh energy into the BMX scene with this public facility with multiple tracks. At the opening riders could ride the pump track for the beginners, table line for the amateurs, dirt line and a park setup.
The opening kicked off at 2 o'clock but some riders were there way early and eager to ride. The opening was a huge success with during the day about 150 people enjoying the weather, riding and music. Riders where on all parts of the track and stoked about the new playground and their friends and family were enjoying their beer and burger in the lounge area which is a perfect spot to overlook all the action in the park. The jam was without a schedule so riders could ride whatever they wanted.
Etnies had some prizes to give away which Syo van Vliet called
A few weekends ago (24th of August) I witnessed the grand opening of Knighton’s new skatepark (Knighton BMX / Skate Park). A few weeks before the opening day I was contacted by David Bennett (of the KB/SP committee) and asked if I could help make provisions for a BMX demo – I made some phone calls which resulted in the formation of a small demo team.
The team itself was called the Valleyside Stunt Team and

The guys on the trip are: Luke Otten, Tyler Lynch, Kenny Kekow, Quinn Doctor, Chase Mcalvain, Sean Thrower, Kris Abildgaard, and Seb Abildgaard.
So Saturday, day one we headed all met up at Kenny Kekows house, loaded up and headed North on I5. We made the decision to hit up Klamath Falls Skatepark along the way to Bend, Oregon.
Klamath Falls is a pretty big park. With no shortage of lines. Not geared towards the street side too much, but mad flow, and punk skater kids complained about pegs. Lol. It was a good spot none the less. We then decided to head to the time share cabin

Instead of starting from scratch, the crew had a lot of ramps available already as all the Red Bull Skylines ramps had been transported to Amsterdam a few months ago. But the ramp set-up in the Westerpark next week won't bee the same as the

Amsterdam isn't a city I visit all too often but with the Red Bull Framed Reactions event coming up I was in town a few times already this year. I'd heard about the new bowl that Miktor and Molf put together as an art project. It doesn't matter where the money comes from, as long as there are more spots to ride. This one however is hidden on the NDSM warf in Amsterdam north. Actually it's only 100 meters from Skatepark Amsterdam and 50 meters from the Red Bull offices. But still you won't see it.
