In the darkness of my garage, the outline of an old familiar friend brings a collection of memories to the forefront of my mind. “Four years,” I mutter, as the sight of its two flat tires instills an unexpected sadness over me. My finger draws a line through the dust on the cross bar until finding the pair of Shadow Conspiracy grips. “How has it been four years?” Freedom, the road, friendship, empty wallets, and moments of agony, all now collecting cobwebs under the cover of a bulbless light. Whether it was out of curiosity or the guilt of bad ownership, I lifted my bike from the pile of lawnmower bits, fishing rods, and gardening utensils and gave it some TLC. With its spokes tightened, tiers pumped up, cranks and stem bolts checked, I decided to ride up the street -

The 2021 Eurobike bicycle trade show also had to deal with the corona virus. The show was smaller than usual but with two BMX shows doing several demos per day it sure gave us a good reason to drive down to the Lake of Konstanz in the very south of Germany. The flatland demos were done by the Deep BMX crew and included the 2019 UCI Flatland World Champion Dom Nekolny as well as Martin Drazil. On the Braun the sessions were heating up with a bunch of solid riders including Tom van den Bogaard, Evan Brandes, Tobias Freigang, Dean Florian, Sikharin Supanmart, Jan Mihaly, Timo Schulze and Paul Thölen.
With fitting music and a good MC, the people who took a break on checking out the 2022 bicycles got to see the latest in BMX tricks. The Braun Spine Mini proved its value and offered a challenging ramp for spine tricks and the extension was there for the daredevils to step it up. With two days of sunshine and perfect weather for good miniramp sessions the crowd was treated with flair whips (Schulze), triple barspin 540's (Sikharin), whip to footjam whip to footjam whip (Florian), double downside whips (Tom) and brakeless barspin tailtaps on the extension to fakie by Paul Thoelen. Shows like these where riders naturally get pushed to 'one-up' each other can explode pretty quickly. Doing improvised runs together on the spine mini at the same time did the job for the Eurobike public. Good stuff people, good stuff.
