How do you usually find out about events happening in Europe?
Cam Peake: Well if it is a FISE contests then I will look on their websites for dates and where abouts they will be taking place and tick those off, but most of them I get a message on facebook or email from the organiser of a contest asking if I want to come to them.
You seem to go to a lot of them. Do you have supporting sponsors that help with your travel costs?
Cam Peake: Yes I have Coyote Sports and Extreme that help me with most of the contests and I will pay for the ones they can't.
Daniel Sandoval is in The Netherlands waiting for the Pro Freestyle event in The Hague to happen. It's great to have riders like him come over for a Dutch event that has BMX Park on the schedule. We fired over some questions to Daniel and here are his replies.
How are your memories of The Netherlands? I guess you left the rebeljam comp on a high note in 2012?
Daniel: Yea it was a great time and it was an amazing event!
The Red Bull Framed Reactions in Amsterdam was a different event. What comes to mind when you think about that contest?
Daniel: That will be an event I will never forget! A contest where you hit a object and the ramps would be moved by a train! So insane but I loved it!
You were in Russia last weekend. What happened there?
Daniel: No comment.

Flatland in The Netherlands has a decent history. The boys are gathering again on Friday 1 July in Heerlen. What's going on down there?
Dez: With Flatground as one of the biggest contests in Flatland history The Netherlands definitely has been on the riders their mind. I'm really stoked Flatland has been added to Pro Freestyle. Pro Freestyle started last year to have an international action sport competition in The Netherlands. Besides BMX Flatland there will be BMX Street, BMX Park, Skateboard, MTB and Scooter competitions. This year there will be two editions one in Heerlen from 30 June till of 3 July and another 26 till 28 of August in The Hague. Flatland will take place on Friday the 1st of July.
