My 2017: Tom van den Bogaard
Hometown: Aarle-Rixtel, Netherlands
Sponsors: Vans, Tall order, Paul's Boutique and 040bmxpark
Do you remember the first BMX event you went to this year and how did it go?
Tom van den Bogaard: The first event I have been to this year was Fise Montpellier in France. Starting the year off with one of my favourite events! The qualification went really well, unfortunately the semi-finals a bit less.
How many weekends/days were you away from home and at a BMX jam/contest or on tour?
Two of The Netherlands' finest riders lay a beating on one of the country's finest concrete bowls. Style, tricks, and good times!
If you somehow aren't familiar with Dutch shredder Tom van den Bogaard yet, press play immediately. There's no way his flawless style and huge tricklist should be embodied by the same rider. We spent one hour with Tom at 040BMXPARK in Eindhoven, Netherlands and the results are mind-blowing. Watch!
Pro Freestyle Friday's qualifying results. Top 12 to Saturday evening's finals in Heerlen-City.
