At Odyssey we have always looked for ways to improve the parts that we use. Better parts can make your riding more enjoyable and allow you to ride longer, and the same thing can be said for the equipment that’s not directly bolted to your bike. It goes without saying that wearing a helmet is almost always a good decision, whether it’s because a skatepark demands it, or just because you’ve realized that being sidelined with an injury is not worth the time and hassle. After 30 years in BMX we’ve seen what can happen when people aren’t wearing safety gear, and because of this we’re always thinking of new ways to reduce the possible chance of injuries. Whenever we’ve discussed helmets in the past we were often discouraged to see so many people wearing designs that are little more than basic hard hats; meaning that they provide all the fit-related inconvenience of a helmet while providing only minimal protection against actual injuries.
Top 20 athletes on the BMX Park Contest Pro are:

We're spending some time on the road to bring you the latest in BMX. We have been doing this for many years. But years ago, you could not follow us doing this. Now you can, through facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pheed and all that Social Media shizzle. We run into some funny stuff on the road, meet interesting people and see amazing stunts. On and off the bike. What might not always be good to post on the FATBMX.com website, could be good enough for Facebook. Or an Instagram picture tells the story without adding many words. Follow us if you want, here are the links to our social media accounts so you don't have to search for it to hook it up.

The FATJAM is arguably the longest running annual BMX JAM on earth. The 28th edition is about to take place at the Sugar Hills in Aarle-Rixtel, Netherlands. With Red Bull taking care of the sound and goodies coming from our trusted and supportive sponsors, the day in the dirt will be another good one.
The plan at least is to have a good time. If that means you're bringing the bike and you're riding the dirt jumps all day, or you're just hanging out drinking a beer or two, that's totally up to you. It's free to ride, it's free to spectate. Parking doesn't cost anything and the toilet is gratis as well. Feel free to bring your own beer and food to make the day even cheaper. The FATJAM concept isn't about making money, it's about celebrating BMX.
Trails are open starting from 13:00hr. The 'goodie session' starts around 15:30hr so if you want to win something, make sure to go nuts. Ambulance Event Service will be present to take care of the wounded riders. MOOON Band will play live at the Sugar Hills as
