When we combine the Mini-FATJAMs and the annual FATJAM being held in the summer, the upcoming Mini-FATJAM will be the 58th edition. That's 58 FAT JAMs that happened in Aarle-Rixtel, an awful lot. Reason of the success? Maybe it's the free riding. Maybe it's the support from caring companies making this an event where everyone wins. The fact that everyone can ride together at a dirt spot that has something for everyone is a big plus. Also visiting Paul's Boutique BMX shop in town could be a reason, or the stories that circulate from the OJA parties. You can bring your own food and drinks. There's no security. It's free to spectate, there's music, and knowing that riders like Mat Hoffman, Jay Miron, Todd Lyons, Chase Gouin, Ian Morris, etc. have jumped at the Sugar Hills should make you want to visit the spot on the Valkendijk in Aarle-Rixtel too, at least once in your life.
Anyway, we're back at it on Saturday 14 April, 2018 to unofficially open the outdoor BMX season. Ryan Nyquist came over early March to test the Killer Jump and liked it a lot showing 720's, Nyquist style 360 tobogans, 360 suicide no-handers, tailwhips(!), rocket no-handers, no-footed cancan nothings, etc. He proved everything is possible on that Killer ramp so it's up to you to come over on the 14th and do the same. It's time to send it!
Program Mini FATJAM 2018: 11:00-13:00hr Paul's Boutique shopping, Dorpsstraat 66a, Aarle-Rixtel.

Trails generally don't get any better if you don't maintain them. But during the winter months it's hard to ride because of the weather. The Flame Trails are in need of a post winter fix-up and we've picked a date for a jam meaning we'll have to get off our asses to get the dirt place up and running again. And it's coming up quick! Saturday 24 March we'll get together and ride. Nothing more, nothing less. You know the Flame Trails will be up and running and it's simply time to get dirty.
With something there for everyone to ride there's no excuse not to make the trip. It starts at 13:00hr so you can even sleep in. With no particular schedule planned other than ride the pump-track / dirt jumps you won't be stressing out. Street riders, BMX racers, Park rats and Dirt riders, we want to see everyone there. Helmond-Brandevoort train station is a 5 minute pedal away and for those planning on riding 040BMXPARK at night, it's a 15 minute drive to Eindhoven. In short, it's time to plan a BMX trip with the crew.
For those wanting to help dig, you're welcome. Between now and 24 March it's go-time. The more that gets built, the more there will be to ride at the Flame Trails Jam. With light, water, shovels, and music present, fixing up the trails can even become a good time. Dig in.

Nitro Circus’ biggest moments, and some of its most notorious crashes, have come from the mind of Travis Pastrana. For the action sports icon, pushing the envelope is just another day at the office. But Pastrana also has the uncanny ability to encourage his fellow riders to go big or go home as well… In some cases despite their better judgment! Now with the 2018 You Got This tour, Travis debuts as executive producer to ramp up the shenanigans with the greatest, craziest, funniest show in Nitro Circus history. Kicking off September 28, 2018 at Montreal’s Centre Bell, Nitro Circus: You Got This will visit U.S. and Canada arenas this fall. Fans can get a jump on the action, though, with tickets on sale starting this Friday, March 9 at nitrocircus.com.
