Logan Martin sets mark on UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup by winning the semi-final in Osijek, Croatia. Round two of the UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup brought the BMX Freestyle elite to Osijek, Croatia. The Pannonian Challenge formed stop two of the Fise World Series. The Open Qualifier on Thursday brought the total field of 50 pro riders from all over the world back to a total of 24 for the semi final. With the five pre-qualified riders mixed in with the 19 semi finalists, the people in Osijek got themselves a good show.
Sneaked in the final
Senad Grosic was supposed to do the commentating of the live-feed for the Croatian people but since he qualified for the semi, fellow Croatian Marin Rantes had to take on the job for him. Flipwhips, seatstand manuals and frontwheel 540 spins saw Senad end up on spot 20, 8 spot short of a qualifying spot. After a decent night of Osijek clubbing, current World Cup leader Alex Coleborn (GBR) sneaked in the final by finishing on 12th place.

This past weekend the BBO was on the program. Just over an hour away in Hasselt, Belgium, Peter Geys and his 900shop crew welcomed riders from all over the place to participate in one of the many classes they had on the program from age classes all the way up to pro classes in flatland, dirt, street and park. It's a tradition at the Belgian BMX Open to have a bunny hop contest which also took place in 2016. The ams all rode on Saturday making Sunday the Pro day. For all Belgian riders the national BMX Freestyle title was on the agenda in each category making it an important comp fo them.
FMX legend and Nitro Circus ringleader Travis Pastrana promised the inaugural Nitro World Games would break new boundaries, progressing action sports to an unprecedented level. He did not disappoint the more than 25,000 fans in attendance at Rice-Eccles Stadium who saw four hours of non-stop thrills and surprises never before seen in an action sports competition. An all-star lineup featuring Olympic snowboarder Todd Richards, skate legend Tony Hawk and Pastrana co-hosted the NBC primetime television

It was a great few days at Rush Skatepark in Stroud, England. Mongoose saved the best for last rounding out the first Mongoose Jam UK with a Park comp. The course layout allowed the field of athletes to put together tons of unique lines. The box jump, quarter and back wall let riders boost huge airs while the technical middle section with a 5 foot deep bowl let athletes link together technical lines and combos.
During Park, the ams went all out in Park. Kaine Mitchell (Team
On day two of Mongoose Jam UK, the ams joined their Pro teams for the Street Comp at Rush Skatepark. Each athlete had two 45 second runs in which the best score counted. All team members were welcome to ride, but only the top two scores from each team counted towards their overall scores. The large street course gave athletes tons of options for all styles of riding from long technical combo lines to burley gaps. The ams took full advantage of the course. Dan Allington (Team Isted) did no foot nose manuals across the entire 50+ foot deck above the stair set, while Leon Williams (Team Wallace) managed a nose bonk 360 over the ledge-topped pyramid, and Ross Domanski (Team Peraza) tail whipped off a banked wall.
Murray Loubster (Team Illingworth) rode with a dislocated thumb, but it didn’t stop him from pulling clean lines and landings. Kriss Kyle (Team Casey) was smooth as always with an alley-oop 360 out of the curved wall ride and did a simple but styley fast plant off the ledge-top pyramid. Alex Donnachie (Team
Day one of Mongoose Jam UK finished with the competition’s first-ever bowl jam where 19 pros from a field of 24 athletes went head-to-head in the first event of the weekend following the Amateur Contest. An audience packed the standing room only viewing areas of Rush Skatepark. The pros quickly found flowy lines while linking sub-box tricks, big airs and tech tricks over the spine. Riders were judged by a panel of BMX industry veterans including Zak Shaw, Chris Hamer, and Scott Hamlin. Each athlete was given two runs, and the best run counted toward their individual score. The top two scores per team counted toward the day’s final results.
Stand-outs included Ryan Taylor (Team Casey) starting his run with a flair drop-in from the deck, while Kevin Peraza (Team Peraza) did a picture-perfect 450 nose manual over the wedge hip. Gary Spencer (Team Ryan) did a 360 whip to foot jam - bar in, and Pat Casey (Team Casey) managed 180 double whip over the spine finishing off the line with a fakey 360.
This year Pro Freestyle has two stops. One in Heerlen, and one in The Hague. Last year's edition in The Hague was the first event that Dick-Jan Leegwater and Martijn Vroemen put on together. Call it a little FISE if you want where athletes from multiple sports get together for a weekend of riding and having fun. The event in Heerlen happened this past weekend and saw BMX flatland, BMX street, and BMX Park on the schedule. Pros, Ams, Girls and Juniors, sometimes mixed together. Next to BMX there was Skateboarding, Inline and Scooter on the same park/street course which was set up right in the city centre. Outside activities included a drawing contest, a pump track to shred all day, art/photo shows all over town and of course a couple of Afterparties. In short, plenty of activities went down and got the riders together for a good weekend.
Pro Park was the ender on Sunday night. Amateur podium finishers Jari Roggeveen and Giano Vacca joined the straight final on Sunday evening because their final had been rained off. They both
With the official start to the inaugural Mongoose Jam UK at Rush Skatepark in Stroud England, twenty-five amateurs competed for a coveted spot on one of six Mongoose Jam pro teams, captained by Mongoose pros Pat Casey, Greg Illingworth, Tom Isted, Kevin Peraza, Paul Ryan, and Ben Wallace. Each athlete will have the chance to ride in street, park, and bowl and vie for a piece of the $15,000 prize purse. The ams threw down like the pros during the contest. Ollie Palmer took first place and landed himself on Greg Illingworth’s team. With tricks like a foot jam on top of a 7 foot sub box during the bowl comp, it’s no wonder why this kid lead the ams.
Ross Domanski joined defending Mongoose Jam champ, Kevin Peraza and the rest of his team. Ross came out of the gates hard with a gap off a small wedge ramp to curved wall ride – 180 out. Riding at a consistently high level the entire day, Ross placed second in street, park and bowl for an overall second place standing in the comp.

Today the Pro Street contest took place at the Pro Freestyle event in Heerlen, Netherlands. Wood 15 built a course that had something for every street rider. A kinked rail, ledges, banks, gaps, quarters, rails, it was all there. Maybe a flat rail was missing but you had the choice of either going up, or going down on the orange rails. A bit of wax was added a few times but all in all the course held up great during the comp which had 9 riders make the final session.
