Alex Jumelin organizes a contest once a year, formerly known as Ninja Jam, now as Ninja Spin and also this year with Braun as main sponsor. Held in Acheres, close to Paris, in a gym around the corner from the local train station. As soon as you enter the hall, you notice that things here don't look like your average flatland contest: designer seats in the pro lounge and big balloons hanging from the ceiling, in very distinctive Stereo Panda colours, all wear flatlander-turned-fashion-designer Jimmy Petitet's signature.
Flatlanders from everywhere started to drip in on Saturday afternoon, Lionel Cardoso was spinning the wheels of steel and the atmosphere was positive and relaxed. Who were there? German Crews including riders like Michael Steingraber, Sven Steinbach, Seppl and Benjamin Grossjohan, the OG Posse from Hungary, with Marton, Adam Kun and Peter Sarlos, some of the best flatlanders from the USA:
The King of Ground contest series over in Japan has started. The KGB crew flew over from Europe to do some damage. Kuoppa finished in 11th but Gomez got 4th and newest KGB member Alexandre Jumelin grabbed the win. The Japanese filled in the rest of the spots. In what order, you can see right here:

HARO UK tour Day 3
Liverpool - Burnley - Coventry
It was a rough night and we had a hard time getting up to leave. We ended up having breakfast at a Burger King on the road. Because it was 2pm we had a choice of either a whopper or a spicy chicken burger. Nice. We arrived at Interact skatepark an hour after that. Instead of hopping on the bike and run out of steam before the 6pm session, we decided to chill and play some frisbee, football and baseball in the parking lot.
HARO UK TOUR Day 2
From Leeds to Liverpool
Being on tour is good fun. Hanging out with friends is great. We exchanged stories in the hotel room till 4am and got up the next morning leaving for Liverpool, home of the Beatles and Ruff Ride BMX park. We had two sessions planned for day two. A private photo shoot during the afternoon and an open session with the locals at night.
HARO UK tour 2005
Spending time on the road with friends is great. We experienced another week visiting skateparks, eating shitty food and slept at different hotels. We were on board with the HARO team in England and will give you a report on how things were. Check back over the next couple of days to get the full picture.
Day 1: Birmingham - Derby - Upton - Leeds
Some riders (OBG, Senad Grosic, Ben Shenker) arrived in Birmingham on Monday night and met up with the rest of the pack on Tuesday. After a quick stop at the HARO UK distributor we drove to Upton for a
Vert at the Bike Show is always a good event. England has a wide range of halfpipe legends and the Europeans are happy to make the move to the Bike Show contest to ride with them. The 18 meter wide RedBull ramp was put in one of the main halls (the cow sheds were too low) so they were in luck. No dust, good light, a warm hall and plenty of spectators.
The event had a couple of cash jams during the weekend, where the riders could earn some pocket money when they pulled off a good trick. The main contest took place on Saturday. With 16 riders on the ramp it was another stacked field.
Mark Theaker was the first victim of the ramp. Riding vert is rough and only destined for real men who can take a slam or two.
MINI FAT JAM 2005
This Mini FAT JAM was not the best ever but the weather was, we had the sun shining on the SUGARHILLS and the MINIRAMP all weekend and it was nice to recover from the Paul’s Boutique party just hanging around at the Mini FAT JAM.
The MINI MINI FAT JAM was real MINI but riders from Maarssen , Lochem, Deventer, Arnhem, Veldhoven, Vessem, Elst were there and showed their skills on our perfect ramp. Evel Rick did some high grizz airs, Riccardo tried to get his 540’s back, Kruimel was whipping it, Mr Frijters is a new kid on the block but learning fast, Pim was trying whips and coming real close, Rens did some nice footplants so there was enough to see for the locals sitting in the sun with a beer in their hands.
