BMX in Croatia? Yup it does exist. Ben Shenker went over there and reports on the street course and some party at a boat house.
A bunch of flatlanders and I headed to Zagreb for the Bike Fight 2 comp. I was excited to go, Croatia is always a good place, thanks to the super-friendly people. The comp/course/event turned out to be worse than I expected. It was at a sports-boat exhibition, so space was limited. The course was really small, with a jumpbox I hopped up straight every time. There was a good wallride, until the wall gave in
and started to crack. So I found another wall, where I smashed a light on the first try. Got 1st for all that and a Vans hoodie too.
The locals were super friendly, took care of us for 3 days and took us out to the strangest clubs. One of them being on the embankment of a frozen river in an abandoned boat house. There were so many people crammed in there that we climbed in the window, only to find ourselves standing like stacks of chips or something...it was fun anyway...
