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.
The annual FATJAM will take place at the trusty Sugar Hills on 22 August 2015. Once again BMX fans from all over will make the trek to Aarle-Rixtel for a quick visit to Paul's Boutique BMX Hardware Store at Dorpsstraat 66 in the morning before heading to the dirt spot at the Valkendijk. None of the FATJAMs are the same so also this year something special can be expected. Over the years we've had free beers, an Evel Knievel stuntman jumping from one side to the other side of the spot, and we've had free Vans waffles. We also had the BMX Olympics at the spot on the Valkendijk and beer races with the party machine. Flatland shows with Matthias Dandois and the Bike Devil? Check.
Needless to say, it's always a good time in Aarle-Rixtel. Mooon will play a live set and OJA has already opened their doors to welcome the FATJAM fans at night. 2 snackbars have stocked up on Frikandellen, Mexicanos and Kroketten so don't you worry about getting hungry. Together with some Bavaria, the puke will look interesting.
