$5 Dollar Shake was the name of the first band and they were damn good. It rocked from the start and they sure woke up the whole town. The comp had 2 BMX classes (+ skateboarding and inline), advanced and beginner. The beginner class ended up being 10 riders and the advanced class saw 9 competitors over the day. Not bad for a local event.
Anel Latifovic had no time to waste and tailwhipped the 5 meter wide mini in Mariahout like there was no tomorrow. Stuart Gibson made sure he entered at stop one for a good overall score and pulled back to back 540-s. Tim Frijters showed up just in time to jump on the ramp and ride the comp and also Waldemar made it all the way from Goes. Michael van der Lee, Riccardo Moes and Daniel Wijsmuller completed the advanced class in Mariahout. Pim van den Bos and Jouri joined the crew in Lieshout, the next stop.
The riding wasn't world top level but that wasn't the point. Getting to ride with others on four different ramps in one afternoon and entering a contest (for free) is something that doesn't happen every day. Add to this a live band during the contest and free transportation in a big tour vehicle and the day can't go wrong. Stop one down, three to go.
