The Tour Dur Laarbeek is a nice concept. 4 miniramps will be visited in one day. At 11:30am you can register for the Tour in Mariahout. The first stop starts there on June 22 at noon. Last year they had live bands at each stop an it did wake some people up in Mariahout when the band kicked off and the guys started riding. It's a BMX-Skate and inline event that is open for anyone to enter. At 2pm the hipped mini will be shredded followed by the spine ramp in Beek en Donk at 4pm and the final stop in Aarle-Rixtel at 6pm.
Sometimes it's hard to wait until the ramps are done. Jolife, Georgios Lakovidis and the Greece crew are axiously waiting until the new section of their concrete park is done. The park is located in Larisa, Greece and they're looking forward to welcome everyone
10 May next is the date of the 2008 People's Spring Jam at the North Brigade in Cologne, Germany. A part of the BMX scene has never heard of this spot which hosted several contests in the past and even the 1994 World Championships. From the year 2000 it was forbidden to ride BMX at the banks and ramps of the North Brigade but since last year bikes are back on the program. No pegs allowed though but plastic pegs can be ridden and are available at the park. More info on directions and pics can be found at the North Brigade
