You get what you deserve. That's what I usually say when the weather turns out great at an event. The beginning of the 2nd national heatwave of the year started on Saturday 24 August when BMX-ers got together for the 31st edition of the FATJAM. The heat also brought the problem of making it tough to keep the trails in good condition. Water was needed badly but wasn't around so sweeping the dust was practically the only thing that could be done. Regardless, riders used the trails all day long in a non-stop train. Several lines were discovered and conquered and also the rollers saw plenty of action all day long by the youngsters who keep on coming back for each edition of the FATJAM to win one of the many goodies and prizes that are donated by our sponsors again and a again. A big thank you goes to TSG, TallOrder, FIST, BSD, Vans, OJA, Gemeente Laarbeek, Federal, and Red Bull for their support
While the Sugar Hills Trails got abused, plenty of chilling and catching up was done on the field next to the dirt spot. Tents and the trees provided the well needed shade while Masterchef Frits handled the burgers on the BBQ. Cool boxes full of adult beverages were brought in and what better way to crack a few the people you like to hang out with. Unfortunately the planned swimming pool never happened but OJA did donate a brand new bike to a new shredder at the FATJAM once again. The young winner didn't know how to act but sure was stoked on getting a free BMX bike after watching everyone ride the trails.
Vans TM Andy Zeiss grabbed the mic at the end of the session to announce Tom van den Bogaard's

Voodoo Jam has been a staple in the New Orleans bike scene since 2004 when it began as a local grassroots competition. Fifteen years later the event is anticipated worldwide and draws the best flatland BMX riders from all the corners of the globe, from countries like Thailand, Brazil, Peru, France, Germany, and Japan. Saturday night Voodoo Jam returned to NOLA, and despite its worldwide reach the event has managed to keep its signature local style. Voodoo Jam is more of a celebration of the sport, with a huge party-like atmosphere that only New Orleans and its crowd can provide.
While some of the world’s best had to travel far to make it to Voodoo Jam, others had a much shorter trip. Hammond, Louisiana’s Terry Adams, a two-time NORA Cup Champion, has competed in the event since its inception in 2004.
Terry is widely recognized as a pioneer in flatland BMX, and one of the best to ever do it. He’s been riding
