On November 18th the last stop of the PSP will take place in Weil am Rhein/Germany (close to Basel/Switzerland). The miniramp-comp will be held in the categories pro and amateur. Everybody that has ever ridden the ramp at the Carhartt skatepark will know that this sweety is well worth a trip! The entry fee is 15 Euros (including free entry to the concert [Highfly and Dog Eat Dog] and catering for the riders). The top three pros will get pricemoney and the amateurs will receive loads of stuff. Practice starts Friday 6pm and the skatepark will also be open on Sunday 'til 5pm.
The Stoppelcross season has started. The first race was held in Handel and saw quite a few BMX-ers and friends on the starting gate in the several classes.Bjorn Wijnants was hella fast on his 250, didn't even know he rode some motocross. Jurgen Meyer and Harm van Brussel had some problems in the beginning of the MX1 hobby final and worked their way up to the front but got stuck somewhere around 15th place. These races become a mess after a couple of laps and it's hard to keep track.
