Last Friday on the 3rd of October the 4th „ Under the Bridge“ Jam took place in Siegen, a not so big town close to Cologne in Germany. The weather pretty much sucked the whole week before the Contest, so we were even more happy when it stayed OK for the day.
The first contest on that day, was a beginner competition for the beginners, especially for them who are from the Siegen area. The first place went to the 10 year old Felix Prangenberg
, who did lookdowns, 360s and had overall a good style.
Soon after there was a little Boxjump Contest/Show, so the crowd who pretty much don't know anything about BMX, could get a good view into it. Check out the pics from it. A little bit after, we hold the Team Contest, the idea behind it was to have one rider from the Siegen area and one rider from another town ride together against/with another team, so it was a battle till the last two teams have to ride in the final. A lot of good stufff went down, big boxjump action but also small technical tricks.
The last two team consisted of Mario Waffenschmidt
and Tom Schorb-Mergenthaler
and Bruno Hoffman
and Marvin Pletz
, cause of the not real good weather forecast, there weren't that many riders from other towns, so the two finalteams were all from Siegen, besides Tom who's from Mannheim.
In the finals, really different tricks happened, like Hang5s and Luc-E 180´s all over the place from Mario
, Barspins in and out of grinds from Marvin
, and No-Hands, Drops in general, spins and whips from me and Tom
. Seconds before we wanted to start the final, the rain began again, so both teams won, no second place, third place went to Marcel „Makl“ Heinrich
and Andre Bär
from Cologne. Thanks to all the people who showed up, the riders and the crowd. Also thanks to all the sponsors, such as Redbull, wethepeople, eastpak, Vans
and the Peoples-Store for all the Prices.
See you next year in Siegen!Bruno Hoffmann
