One way to get people together is putting a title on an event. BMX Amsterdam put the title Open Dutch BMX Dirt Championship on the poster and the people came. Stijn Hens and Kenneth Tancré made it an international comp as the Belgians were put on the list last minute and Stijn had to borrow a helmet to ride the three jumps that were chosen to crown the champion at the end of the day. It was our first time are BMX Amsterdam, located on the West-Siiiide of Amsterdam at the Grifioen Outdoor facility. It was hard to find a parking spot but that was also caused by the athlethics tournament that took place next to BMX Amsterdam and us arriving fairly late. Practice was just being wrapped up and the comp started with younger age groups. Riders could pick their lines. There were 4 of them to choose from. The table line on the left was most popular with the younger age groups and parents classes, the small table line next to it was an option also and the third line from the left had gaps in between the take-off and landing and was shaped in a bit of a hip kind of way. The bigger line had a huge starting hill and mega kickers and was used by the brave riders in the age groups and the pro class riders.
Taj Mihelich made a presence at BMX Amsterdam. The BMX legend was on a bicycle trip in Europe and pedaled to the ONK to witness the event and check out the facility. The newly added pump track was a nice addition to the already amazing place which has a roller section, spine miniramp with box and an indoor facility with park and street sections also.
Pension plan? Don't really have one. First you gotta see if you actually make it that far. The FATJAM has made it to 65 editions and is not ready to stop. It's the longest running annual BMX jam in the world and looking at the smiles on everyone's faces it would be a mistake to end the good times. So if you have never made it to Aarle-Rixtel for a FATJAM, your live isn't over, you will get an other chance. Also for this edition we had to prepare the sugar Hills trails for the dirt session. It's unbelievable the Killer jump has survived this long. It outlasted many riders and caused some victims once again. That name is there for a reason. You've got to respect the Killer because the moment you don't you'll get killed as some of the youngsters found out. Oh well, there's your new challenge for the next edition; master the Killer. The dirt spot looked good and ready for the afternoon of action. The massive rain the day prior had only helped. Thanks to all who pitched in shaping, digging and getting rid of that grass that keeps coming back.
Once again prizes were handed out around 4pm provided by the raddest companies in BMX. It resulted in happy faces especially when a brand new complete bike was handed out to the 2023 FATJAM Talent presented by OJA. Lentjens will be a BMX lifer. This moment he'll never forget. Aarle-Rixtel breeds BMX-ers and in part it's because of its BMX history. The people who have traveled to send tricks, hang out and party is long. And international.
