Sponsors: Rockstar Energy, Hyper Bmx, Snafu Bmx, Worm App, Kali Protectives!
Do you remember the first BMX event you went to this year and how did it go?
Logan Martin: The first event of 2017 was a dirt event in California which I ended up in 6th place.
How many weekends/days were you away from home and at a BMX jam/contest or on tour?
Watch as Logan Martin, Kostya Andreev, Daniel Dhers, Alex Coleborn, Daniel Sandoval, Colton Walker, Brandon Loupos, and more battle it out in China for their chance to be UCI's first ever Freestyle BMX World Champion!
The 'BMX Machine' Logan Martin pulled out another incredible run, with lots of incredible skill and tenacity. It was obvious that it was a run to get him in the top three.
The Semi finals in Budapest were run under windy conditions but the riders made it work as usual and we're hoping for better weather during the 12-men final in Hungary on Sunday afternoon August 20th. Make sure to watch it live here on FATBMX.com.

With the Olympic news being announced the day before the contest, the riders were stoked to ride Pannonian Challenge in Osijek, Croatia. With 2016 UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup champion Logan Martin on the starters list, the grandstands packed up quickly. In sunny weather the finals kicked off at 18:00hr sharp on a course that was used for a UCI BMX Freestyle World Cup last year. For those who could not make it we had the live feed up on FATBMX so by now you've probably seen the tricks and know that Logan Martin won the €2600 check for first place while most of his fellow top Park riders were fighting over 6 X-Games spots in Boise, USA at the same time. Logan is pre-qualified for that one so he could fly to Croatia to ride the comp. Local Marin Rantes was fit enough to ride after his hand injury from two weeks ago in Montpellier. He had to skip riding the Pro Freestyle comp but made the trip to the Pannonian Challenge (18th edition!) to give it a shot. Once his bike showed up (2 days late) he gave it a shot and crashed in practice injuring his knee. But when the stands pack up and the biggest contest of the year in your own country is about to start, you can bite through the pain. Marin did great and had the crowd behind him. He even made Logan Martin step it up for his second and last run to secure the win. Marin got second and was well stoked on that. Erik Figar (CZE) has a killer second run and stepped on the podium in Osijek together with two of his heroes. Unfortunately Michael Beran (CZE) was too hurt to ride but some talent is coming out of Slovenia in the name of Matej Zan who has incredible bike control, style and does his tricks with good amplitude. David Janac from the Czech Republic completed the top 5 at the 2017 edition of the Pannonian Challenge.

Logan had a sore shoulder and took the day off riding, I thought would be the perfect time to put LOGAN in the HOT SEAT and get a bunch of answers out of him. We talk about BMX, BIKES, LIFE, and how many rockstars has he taken. Would you believe over 1000?
If you got to seen DAILY SESSIONZ 24 you would know i wasn't happy with it, but in todays Episode i definitely put in work with Logan Martin, Jayden Fuller +more an we made up for it with a banger session!
