Op 12 en 13 september is het Nederlands Kampioenschap BMX Freestyle 2020 gereden in Skateland Rotterdam. Voor het eerst werd het NK Street gereden. Ondanks de corona maatregelen is dit evenement, dat onderdeel is van Rotterdam Street Culture Weekend toch doorgegaan!
Skateland Rotterdam has a fresh new park course! During the lockdown the guys at Skateland did some remodelling and added new ramps to the skatepark. My friends and I were very lucky to be able to cruise the park for a few hours before they reopen in the near future.

Lost of things are happening in the BMX scene right now and, as always, everybody has an opinion about what direction BMX Freestyle has to go…. Well this story will stay away from that discussion and will focus on why we (people with passion for the sport) wanted to start 2019 with a Bang and a Jam! Our beloved sport is coming from an all-time low and we noticed new faces popping up at the locals and commercial parks. Also it was time to get the scene together as a whole, no more politics but sharing the passion we all have for 16” up till 26”wheels, as one! We needed an indoor location where all types of riding could take place (except Dirt, but another JunkieJam will happen this year). Not only park rats needed to come out but also street riders needed to be attracted. Skateland Rotterdam has for all these riders obstacles they like to shred so we got in touch with them and without hesitation they agreed to open up their park for this event and even stepped up to the plate to make the entry free for all the riders. Because time and budget was limited we needed people to people to help us for free…
