The Pro dirt contest was run the regular way, meaning three runs each with the best two scores counting into an overall classification. The style-creative-hard trick system wasn't used because there was simply no time to do qualification first and then a final. It didn't hurt the riding though. Check the results here:

We've collected some random pics from the Rebel Jam in Berlin to share with you. The event is great and there's lots going on. It's chill but with hundreds of BMX-ers in one place there is the usual BMX - security fight going and hangovers to deal with. Some riders got hurt and are limping around but the vibe is good and fun is being had. As you can see on the right, Aaron Ross is here. His neon green bike helped in his late night qualifying run.
