The 040BMXPARK in Eindhoven has become a park on the bucketlist for a lot of riders. The crew simply does things right and they understand that running a park is not about building ramps and expecting people to show up. Riders only show up for so long before they expect a jam, some new obstacles, a GAME of bike, a clinic or a contest.
To keep things fresh, a new jam was held last Saturday called Addsome. 8 new removable ramps were built and put somewhere in the park. This created new lines and new possibilities for tricks and that was exactly the point. A 10-minute session was had on each obstable and 2 BMX riders were awarded with €5 each for the best trick or line on an obstacle.
It was up to the riders to put the effort in to make some pocket money. Some would spend it on making their entry fee back for the night, others got some snacks while some made plans to go out that night. With Steven G on the microphone the Addsome comp got under way on the added obstacle near the vert wall.
It was one of the harder constructions to let some tricks fly.
The jam was loose and stress-free. If you wanted to use a different part of the park while the comp was going on, you could. If you wanted to ride only one obstacle, that was your choice.
Some riders didn't mind that 040BMX locals Tom van den Bogaard was ill and Daniel Wedemeijer was injured giving them more chance for some cash. All in all a fun night.
The obstacles will disappear but might come back one by one in the upcoming weeks. You'll have to visit 040BMXPARK to find out.
