Murray Loubser is a BMX Street sensation in his native South Africa and he has combined with his mentor - former rider and Red Bull Photographer Wayne Reiche - to create a hypnotic Cape Town video with 'Shapes in the City'. Here is all you need to know:
- The 24-year-old Loubser honed his BMX skills in the sleepy village of Gansbaai after moving from Cape Town and went on to win the coveted Ghetto Jam title in 2015.
- South African bike legend Reiche has had a huge effect on Loubser's career and they hooked up for this project after Loubser's 'Desert Ride' with Eric Garbers in 2018.
Finally I have been at the ZooPark! I've travelled with VFL towards Priero to attend the C1 that Alessandro and the Italian federation organized in the park which he built near his house. I expected to have an epic day with Daniel Dhers, Daniel Wedemeijer, Nikita Ducarroz and all the athletes from our national team.
We crossed all of northern Italy, passing through Voghera to retrieve Patrick (@patriziodeturana), the best speaker in the game, up and down the hills of Barolo without even being able to taste at least a glass, pushing to start our working weekend. Unfortunately we also drove through villages severely affected by the previous day's flooding, a torment to see.
Arrived for dinner we joined the national team for a quick pizza in front of their hotel. In the team there were two newcomers, the guys who participated in the Italian championship a few weeks ago, Lucas Vega and Christian Ceresato. Unfortunately a lot of the other guys are missing due to ongoing injury.
We not stayed up late, just a couple of extra beers at the end of the dinner and straight to our rooms, Ale booked us two rooms in the hotel next to his house, so we were close by. We woke up fresh and rested

Bensink End of Era jam. Niels Bensink organised an awesome “last” jam at the Bensink Gates compound. Niels is moving to Canada with his girlfriend Drew Mechielsen beginning next year and Albert Bensink is ready for his retirement so this could be the last serious jam. But you never know what will happen to the trails now Stefan Groothuis the former World and Olympic speed skater found his way to the dirt jumping scene with his sons so he might be the next Bensink trail caretaker.
Many superstars were riding the trails today with MTB’s and BMX bikes like Frank Heijne, Desmond Tessemakers, Bart Mol, Jeremy Struik, Sem Kok, Jordy van de Heijde, Denzel Vakkers, Bas Fokkinga etc and many Belgian and German rippers. Niels Bensink rode his MTB today and you could see he is at
