And with perfect weather conditions, grillmaster Frits with the best hamburgers in town, chill tunes and perfectly shaped trails all the ingredients were there for the 27th FATJAM.
In the long tradition of epic Austin BMX events, the Chase Hawk / Empire Born and Raised Jam at House Park did not disappoint. It kicked off this past Friday with a bowl shred and a street course best trick contest. Bowl shredders included Austin Brunger, who was totally blasting and flowing, the lovely Nina Buitrago with her oh so stylish one handed grind into a nice one handed tabe, Tomas Fuentes and Michael Woodby were blasting, Santana was on the shred hard in the advanced class, and the little dude who pulled the no handed fakie was seriously awesome....
The best trick contest was held immediately following the bowl jam and it did not disappoint. The winner, as decided by judges Chase Hawk, Chad Kerley, and Dan Lacey, was Josh Dissinger with an epic nose manual 360 off the ledge into the bank, so sick! Other noise makers in that event included Jake Seely, with his epic manual and nose manual skills, Grant Germain and his gnarly up
Dealing with the strong wind was on the rider's minds all day in Serignan at the 2015 version of the Lords Of Dirt During finals it was necessary to pull off two solid runs out of three which wasn't easy with the beach flags moving like crazy on top of the big starting hill. JB Peytavit rode solid during finals and grabbed his second win in a row at the Action Sports park in France. Tech, opposite, spinning, upside down, you name it, JB got it done. Not only two times, but his final run topped it off and brought the third strong score in for the win.
Practice time was cut short for the Lords Of Dirt participants as strong winds made it difficult to clear the big line which was prepared by Markus Hampl and Patrick Guimez. But in the end, riders made it work, as usual. The suspected rain held off and after two qualifying runs each, sixteen riders made it to the finals.
The crowd stuck around in Sérignan which was easy as plenty of activities took place during the day. The skatepark next to the dirt facility was opened after receiving a new paintjob and got visitors

Without much pre-planning a whole bunch of BMX-ers from The Netherlands and their families ended up at Eurocamp at the same time. Some came by plane, some took a 20 hour bus ride, some drove their camper or other vehicles there. If there's a will, there's a way, and who doesn't want to go to paradise? Axel Jurgens and his wife Rosario run the Eurocamp park up in Tossa de Mar in Spain on a former tennis court of Camping Pola. The place got transformed into biker's paradise with the help of the donated Nike 6.0 ramps from a freestyle comp in Barcelona a few years ago. The place now has a quarter resi, resi jump box, foam pit, street area, spine mini, pump track, some decent sized trails and three new tables and a turn which are less spectacular than the big line but a bit more demanding than the pump track. Eurocamp is constantly changing and getting better every time we pay a visit.
Tom van den Bogaard, Thomas, Pim Scheers, Arjan Ellens and Jesper Vervoort took a bus there. The cheapest way to get to the Costa Brava if you can handle 20 hours on the bus.

World Class BMX Dirt events are hard to find in 2015. For whatever reason, the dirt jump elite don't have a lot of choice when it comes down to meeting up and getting rad together. The Lords Of Dirt event in France makes sure that everyone who loves sending it over big dirt jump doubles gets to do this all together. On the weekend of 21/22/23 August riders like Leandro Moreira from Brasil, Philipp Baum from Germany, Nitro Circus' Jaie Toohey from Australia, legend Corey Nastazio (USA), Dany Josa (Hungary), Jakub Benda (Czech Republic), Dew Tour winner Brandon Dosch (USA), Craig Teague (UK), Rhys Kember (AUS) and many more to be announced, will make it down to Sérignan for the 2015 edition of the Lords Of Dirt series, spearheaded by organiser Patrick Guimez.
The building of the 2015 Dirt course has started and will bring many surprises. The contest is open for Amateur as well as Pro riders so basically all dirt riders should make it down to the Languedoc-Roussillon area at the Mediterranean sea.
