The inaugural Vans BMX Pro Cup Series has touched down in Sydney, Australia to welcome the most talented BMX riders to the shores of Manly Beach for a premier showcase of BMX competition! With the final competitive field secured, the series’ first Global Qualifier event anticipates an explosive exhibition of invited pro riders, wildcards, and regional talent. Kicking off with an open Regional Qualifier (RQ) event earlier this week, the Vans BMX Pro Cup Series crowned Australian local Boyd Hilder as the first regional winner, leading an eager group of 12 top riders who advance to the main event beginning March 3. The event will host two Best Trick obstacle challenges, sponsored by LUX BMX, granting the most creative and innovative riders with a special cash prize.
As preparations for the 2017 Nitro World Games get underway, a second wave of athletes has been added to the ground breaking action sports competition, airing in primetime on NBC from Salt Lake City’s Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday, June 24. The 2016 second and third place finishers in FMX, BMX Best Tricks, BMX Triple Hit and Skate Best Trick are invited to the Nitro World Games semifinals (taking place on Friday, June 23, also at Rice-Eccles Stadium). Earning a place on the podium last year now gives them the opportunity to skip qualifying and advance directly to the semifinals, just one step away from the epic final round. Only the top eight athletes in each discipline will then advance
Every February when we launch the helmets, fans come from all over the world to get a piece of technology, art and protection. Last year we increased the amount of EPS for better energy management in impacts along with the implementation MIPS rotational impact protection system, left no doubt the king of helmets would remain. The only helmet to win the reader polls year in and year out, the only helmet to win Olympic BMX Gold, Downhill World Cup Gold and RedBull Rampage gold.

Troy Lee first came into the BMX market by doing custom painted helmets. Although not cheap, all designs were superb and your helmet stood out from all others. The only thing you needed to do was not crash and scratch up the bucket. But the early nineties are far behind us. TLD moved into the helmet business using their own paint designs, started doing racing gear, safety gear, bags and clothing.
Now it's time to introduce the Troy Lee Designs sportswear line making their range even bigger. Feel free to check their website to do some shopping.
The Flame Trails in Helmond Brandevoort are calling for a get-together on Sunday 9 April. If you've always wanted to ride some dirt but never picked a day to actually do it, this is your chance. The dirt spot in Brandevoort has lots of rollers, and a line with some small doubles that take you around a full lap without pedaling once. For the little kids, or those who don't want to roll down the container for the first time, a little kids track is right there where you can warm up or get the skills down for the real deal. Lots of transfer lines are possible so even the most skilled BMX racer will find a challenge at the Flame Trails.
At 13:00hr the session will start. Around 17:00hr the session is over. No big deal if you're late as there's no real program. We'll make sure the spot is in good shape on April 9th for y'all to enjoy. Spread the word, tell your friends, load up that car with bikes. Helmond-Brandevoort Train station is a 5 minute pedal away if you want to max out that NS card on Sunday. Location: Sportpark Brandevoort, Kaldersedijk, Helmond, NL.
For those want to have a session prior, every Tuesday from 18:30hr - 20:00hr it's time to ride together and work on the jumps. Everyone welcome.
Chase Krolicki is the newest member of the BMX Freestyle squad. Having grown up in the Michigan BMX scene, Krolicki has been surrounded by long-time veterans of the industry as well as up-and-coming pros who have helped him develop a unique style. “I’m stoked to have Chase on the team,” said Ben Ward, GT BMX Team and Product Manager. “I first met Chase in 2014 on a road trip to Detroit, Michigan. I was immediately impressed with his attitude and his riding. Then, I saw his part in The Michigan Video, and he blew me away. He has the new school technical moves, but he’s not afraid to send it when he has a chance. I’ve stayed in touch with Chase since then, and jumped at the opportunity to work with him at a brand level. The crew and I are more than excited to get Chase into the mix. 2017 is going to be seriously fun.”
