Juan Niebles is a professional BMX Flatland rider from Bogota, Colombia. On his way to Italy to work on a cruise ship for Cirque du Soleil , he stopped in Montreal in order to train and prepare for the show at the Cirque HQ (April 2020).
Cheesy Hundertmark from Germany gets the cover of FAT-'zine issue 30. Also on the cover in small video grab pics is Ian Morris doing a humonguous rail in our hometown back in 1994. It was a good year. Ice Money popped up in Cologne and later in Munich, Germany and England. Even in the Lageja ad!
The Editorial is still accurate. I do have a car now though. Free stickers this time from KDL, BigBoy, Busy P and GT. Huge new section. I hope to see some of these guys in Vegas next week at the Nora Cup.
At the Trierer Cup we almost got blown away by Hurrican Ike. The tent took off but the Chevy stayed on the floor. Paul Osicka got an interview that starts on page 22. AK Helmond race report. Freestyle World's in Cologne.
The real world's, none of that LG fake World Championships stuff. VANS Cup in Amsterdam. Dam right!
Wateringen trails report by Petrik de Heus. Bartman comic by Deamer. Magazine interviews with Marco Massei, and Freedom BMX.
The 1994 FAT-JAM was one of the best ones. Read the report on pages 49-54.
De Bokkelulle went on tour. We organized a BMX museum in Helmond in 1994. Imagine how old that
To make it to the BMX freestyle Park program at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris is not an easy task. Only 12 Men and 12 Women will be able to participate on the Olympic stage which will be built up at the Place de La Concorde in the summer of 2024. The Olympic Qualifying process has been announced and the points chase for quota places for Continental Championships and World Championships has started already. The more points the top two riders of a nation gather, the more riders (of that nation) will be able to participate at the bigger events in 2023/2024. Time has started for the top two riders to move their country up in the nation ranking. Throwing C1 events is a way for federations to offer their local riders an event that they can attend without having to travel far. At the BMX Open in Rotterdam on 4 September the Dutch Park riders showed up as well as a big delegation from Hungary, a German, and a rider from Slovakia.
The level of riding these days is insane. Double whips, barspin backflips, and truckdrivers have almost become 'filler tricks'. It's key to stand out from the pack by going higher, doing transfers no one else is doing, bring tricks that nobody else can do and pack as many of them in a 60 second run without making any mistakes using the entire course. Place #11 could have won an event only a few years ago but the level keeps going up making it hard for the riders to stay on top of things. At the end of the day it was Tom van den Bogaard (NED) who grabbed the 200 UCI ranking points at Skateland in front of #2 Zoltan Ujvary (HUN) and #3, youngster Tom Clemens (GER).
Earlier this year, Sam Jones made the pilgrimage out to the Golden State for a hit of that glorious Cali sunshine. Sam went in hard on the iconic West Coast spots and his new BSD video part, California Jonesin', is the result. Enjoy...
