And there it was, the last FATJAM. Many of you didn't want to pass up the opportunity to witness the annual jam in Aarle-Rixtel. For some it was a walk into memory lane, others have shown up year after year. It didn't matter what the reason was, you guys were there and that was much appreciated. With the same concept as previous years, the 30th edition did bring something new; the Rodeo Bull provided by OJA, one that could be manned ourselves. Next to that the Sugar Hills trails were in good shape (considering) and were used all day long. It took a while before the Killer Jump got used but the ones with No Fear were brave enough the work with the soft landing. 040BMXPARK brought the Big Air Bag for everyone to work on some new tricks. Even the smallest riders took all the speed they could from the street to send themselves on the soft mattrass. Masterchef Frits van der Linden and partner in crime Robin de Put manned the BBQ until the 150 delicious Beckers Burgers were all gone. In the meantime the locals had brought their coolers full of Bavaria and found themselves a spot at the FATJAM to shoot the shit and have a good time while the riders got to ride the Sugar Hills all day until they had enough.
At 16:00hr Paul got on the microphone to hand out the goodies that were provided by our sponsors Vans, Paul's Boutique, Beckers, Fist and OJA. OJA even provided a complete bike that went a young visitor named Yvo from New Zealand who had no bike to ride. He even picked up some matching FIST gloves to go with the bike. All he wanted were a few stickers. Then he got home with a new bike.

X-Games in Minneapolis, it still seems crazy to even be uttering these epic words in the same sentence. The greatest action sports event on the planet, and your own hometown. However, it comes as no surprise that after two successful years here in Minneapolis, X-Games has decided to extend their time here for an additional two years thru 2020. Now, this article isn't intended to tell you what all went down during the games, but rather to bring you a much better idea and vision of what X-Games actually means on a local level to us Minnesotans.
Arriving into Town... Extremely Convenient. X-Games in Minneapolis, really is the epitome of the perfect fit. Athletes, course builders, staff members, volunteers, fans, and those travelling to our great state of Minnesota, are able to fly to the middle of the country directly into Minneapolis/Saint Paul International Airport. Follow that with a simple 20 minute ride directly to U.S. Bank Stadium and the surrounding hotels, and restaurants, and nightlife that Downtown Minneapolis has to offer via our Light Rail.
Our Gorgeous Minnesota Weather... as well as 10,000 Lakes. Summertime weather is absolutely gorgeous here in the "Land of 10,000 Lakes". When compared to X-Games' previous home in Austin, Texas, there really is no comparison. Our mild temps, beautiful evenings, and pristine waterways provide a backdrop for X-Games that has yet to be rivaled..

The weather wasn't on our side this weekend in Newquay for Canna BMX Baoardmasters 2018 Mini Ramp competition. There was lots of stop start action all weekend in between the rain and the wind. Luckily with the patience of the Skateboarders, the crowd, and the most importantly the riders we managed to get the contest done! Alfie Heming won the under 16s contest with some great flow and back to back tricks from the small part of the ramp to big airs on the 8 foot extension. Reef Way was a close second with a 540 and some 360 to fakies in between some good tech tricks.
