The Eurobike show has a big reputation when it comes down to BMX freestyle shows. GT cracks were brought over in the late '80-s and Early nineties. Also Dennis McCoy made it over one year for Mongoose. The BMX track in the middle with dirt jumps has seen plenty of good action but the last couple of years it kind of stuck with European demos. Last year saw the La Finca ramp there and this year it was basically a one man show on the track (Todd Lyons on his SE BMX bike against everyone else on their MTB-s) but there was more. Turn2 was hired to do flatland demos and they brought over a great crew of riders with 2005 World Champ Michael Sommer, Wolfgang Sauter, Seppl, Matti Rose and Frank "Lowcash" Lukas. They even brought over their own DJ and an MC.
Turn2 showed that flatland can be damn cool. The show on Saturday night was insane. Good sound, good vibe and great riding. The riders were feeding off of eachother which is always the best.
With the floor being next to perfect (relatively new asphalt) the riders didn't stick to their usual show program. Sauter showed flow, Seppl hard moves, Lukas was spinning, Rose was flowing and Sommer did a bit of everything and with Andy Zeiss on the mic and great tunes coming out of the speakers it all worked out really well.
Let's get BMX back into the Eurobike show. Any takers?
