Halfpipes are big and scary. I don’t think I have ever ridden one. But over in England they have a halfpipe series, and also the kids enter this competition. The second round was held outdoors on a halfpipe in Upton. Most of the halfpipe riders are pretty old, but they are bringing their kids now. There is a special class for them. They call it Vert Squirts for some reason. Kodee Jaykins did really well on his 16 inch bike and made it to the top of the ramp and to the top of the results. Congratulations.
Next round will be at the Beast Ramps in Manchester, England on September 22.
Hi FATBMX Kids fans, today I went to the Flame Trails, just around the corner from my house in the Netherlands. It’s more of a pump track. You can ride fast and you can jump everything. We started off by putting everything up, the tents, the flags, the banners and then we rode, we rode, we rode and we rode.
The FATJAM is a day I always look forward to. We can win prizes and ride the jumps with all the other riders. There was also a barbeque with Frikandellen and Hamburgers. I had a plan. I wanted to jump the Killer Jump which is much bigger than me. Daniel Wedemeijer helped me jump it. That made me happy. It was a fun day to ride with all the BMX-ers at the Sugar Hills Trails in Aarle-Rixtel.
Yesterday after dinner my dad and I drove to the Helm Trails for a dirt session. The Helm Trails are on the other side of the city. Dimitris Araouzos, Bart Mol and Dennis Keunen were also going to come. Dad told me that Raymon van der Biezen was also going to be there. He was at the Olympics twice as a BMX racer so I was looking forward to meet him in my hometown.
Lots of locals were there already. The place was pretty full. The table line was once again changed since the Dutch Championships from a few months ago. The first one was steep, so Riccardo changed it a little. It was better after that. We rode for two hours. I met Raymon van der Biezen. I wanted to do an interview but then I had to go home. Maybe next time.
