Perfect trails, a good atmosphere and sunshine all around: Those were the conditions for the first T-Mobile Local Support Challenge in the Abflughalle Grevenbroich on the weekend of 21st of April 2007.
All in all ten BMX teams from all regions of Germany had a great battle in front of the judges Andy Zeiss
, Achim Kujawski
and Sari Jörgensen
. It was all about top-prizes, like a new Local Support Obstacle or a complete BBQ party. Furthermore there was a T-Mobile Wildcard to be had, awarded to the best unsponsored BMX rider who would then be able to move directly into the finals of the T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds event in Herten on the 12th of May.
The “Sport Import Team” with Markus Hampl, Bjorn Heyer
and Benny Paulsen
won the team challenge at the end of the day and are now looking forward to a brand new custom made Local Support Obstacle. The T-Mobile Wildcards stayed local with Mike Buse
(BMX) going to ride with top-riders like Ryan Nyquist
at the Dirt Session, which is the premiere of the T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds series,
on the 12th of May in Herten, Germany.
Before the event, between runs and after the contest, riders and visitors had the opportunity to “beef up” with a free BBQ or to “fix up” their bikes at the Local Support Service Van. Results Team Challenge:
