So we did it again! Junkie Jam 2.0 was nothing short of amazing. Memorable moments include: Arjan Ellens dominating the quarter pipe with huge airs. Bart van den Broek doing the first frontflip of the day. Desmond Tessemaker finally back on the bike, going huge with a ton of backflip variations. Levi Weidmann racking up a lot of spins sometimes including barspins and tailwhips too. Niels van Maren doing ruben wallrides on the bridge pillar. Albert Moonen being close to 50 years old but showing us younger guys how to take a hit and get back up again. A lot of riders showing up just to watch the riding. First time riders getting as much love as seasoned guys. Daan van Wezel doing backflips and huge wallrides wearing sandals. This list could be endless.
Big thank you to Albert Moonen for keeping the spirit of BMX alive. DTX13 and everybody involved in getting the ‘trails’ in good shape for the jam and supplying everything needed to get the party going. 0172INK and Paul’s Boutique BMX for prizes to encourage the guys to go big.
Without a doubt the Junkie Jam will be back next year so make sure to come too!
