The Dutch Park championships took place last Sunday at Skateland in Rotterdam. Although a few riders were missing (Tom van den Bogaard's grandma turned 100 and Niels van Maren struggled with the Covid) the competition was fierce. When everyone rides at their best the vibe is good. The riders are happy with their riding and the crowd is stoked on the best riding they've ever seen the riders do. A win-win situation. 5 classes were on the program for Sunday. With practice, qualification rounds and finals it was a long day before the prizes were given out at the official ceremony in the evening. The most talented riders in each class get to call themselves Dutch champion for a year. In the Elite classes the titles went to Arjan Ellens and Jana Muradova with Thomas in 't Veld (15+), Bruno Colautti (-14) and Indy Kramer (Girls -14) winning the other categories.

What would have been an undisputed star of the day is not there when I arrive to the park Alessandro Barbero, reigning national champion for the last three years will not compete due to an ankle injury sustained in practice. This shuffles the cards and gives to each athlete the opportunity to shake off the awe and give everything to aim for the title.
And what a battle it has been with Gabriele Pala, Emanuel Bettassa and Christian Falvo holding up the KOBRA BMX team flag, Francesco Mongillo returning from a serious ankle injury, Vittorio Galli from Milan, Ramon Francesconi and Lucas Vega from Genova and the local (and promoter of the idea that led to to this Olympic center) Elia Benetton.
In the qualifing (that count only for the starting order of the finals) almost everyone hold back the bangers for the final. Unfortunately Elia cannot keep his runs together after finishing first in the quali with some impressive lines and enormous flip transfer. Down in both his final runs he’ll have to wait a full year for another shot for the title. The scores are very close despite very different styles: Christian Falvo with the highest airs, Gabriele Pala with the technical combos, Emanuel Bettassa with his unique flow and style and Mongillo with an impressive trick variety.
