The second edition of Pro Freestyle will happen in Heerlen this weekend. Are you looking forward to it? Daniel Wedemeijer: For sure looking forward to it. Always good to have something big like this in my home country!
Now that you live in the south of Holland, you still need to drive another hour to the far south tip of The Netherlands. Are you expecting riders from nearby Germany and Belgium to show up as well? Daniel Wedemeijer: Heerlen is a perfect location for riders out of Germany, Belgium and even France. So yes hopefully lots of them will come over to have a good time.

Flatland in The Netherlands has a decent history. The boys are gathering again on Friday 1 July in Heerlen. What's going on down there? Dez: With Flatground as one of the biggest contests in Flatland history The Netherlands definitely has been on the riders their mind. I'm really stoked Flatland has been added to Pro Freestyle. Pro Freestyle started last year to have an international action sport competition in The Netherlands. Besides BMX Flatland there will be BMX Street, BMX Park, Skateboard, MTB and Scooter competitions. This year there will be two editions one in Heerlen from 30 June till of 3 July and another 26 till 28 of August in The Hague. Flatland will take place on Friday the 1st of July.
