The launch ramp frame was given to Bas Brouwer after the ramp had done its duty at the Sugar Hills for a couple of years after the demise of the European GT Air Show team. It still jumps shitty as most of the riders present found out.
During a session at the end of the day a "Best Trick" contest was held. Tricks could be done on the roll-in, the jump box or the quarter to wall and the crowd were judging the little comp.
Pim van den Bos came out the winner, followed by Mark Vos and Michael van der Lee. Champagne was sprayed and fun was had.
At the end of the day the place looked like a battlefield. Riders who challenged the set up all day were limping and bandaged. The ramps fell apart, cracked and had holes in them. It looked like the German tanks had made it back into town.
Even though the quality of the ramps and the riding wasn't at world level, days like these are good for BMX. There was a crowd all day long, TV was there and more importantly, kids on BMX bikes got to ride a different set-up with Holland's best riders all day long. No pressure, no security, no stress. A true BMX jam.
