It's not every day that some of the top Pro BMX riders make it to The Netherlands for a Park contest. Pro Freestyle over in Heerlen was supposed to be the place to see the good action this past weekend. On Friday practice got on its way. The 040BMXPARK ramps were available all day to ride. Unfortunately Pim Scheers had a collision with an other rider and broke his finger. With a trip already booked for China (UCI World Cup) this is now going to be a challenge. Get well soon Pim. With many pro riders in town such as Marin Rantes, Jack Clark, James Jones, Declan Brooks, Senad Grosic, Cam Peake, Tobias Freigang, Dominik Freigang, Micheal Meisel, Daniel Wedemeijer, Shaun Gornall, Joe Ferguson, Levi Weidmann, Steffen Buyle and Val Ward, Shanice Silva Cruz, Valeri Steffe and Emma Finnegan on the female side, it's a pitty that the weather gods had different plans. What was supposed to be a good weekend full of riding in the city centre of Heerlen turned into indoor riding sessions elsewhere (The Promise and 040BMXPARK).
Nothing you can do but after a great summer it sucks that it was a wet weekend with so many great riders in town.
Bring on Pro Freestyle for 2019. Keep an eye out for the event dates on the FATBMX Event Schedule.
