We've been talking about taking the FATJAM internationally and now it's going to happen. We've added one more FATJAM to the 2016 program and we're heading to Tossa de Mar to celebrate BMX in Paradise. Eurocamp will be the venue for the first international edition to be held on 7 August 2016. If you're not aware of Eurocamp, it's pretty much the best place on earth. It has a killer park course, miniramp, street section, resi, foampit, pump track and trails. Add a private beach to it and you don't want to go home afterwards. Why not stay?
On August 7th we will be riding all day and when the sun goes down, the lights on the miniramp will be turned on for an evening session followed by some party activities (to keep the FATJAM spirit alive).
BMX supporting companies who want to get involved, please contact us. We need some goodies to hand out to the riders who give it their all.
