Events are being postponed and cancelled it seems almost daily with the worldwide spread of the Corona virus pandemic. Thankfully flatland can be something some of us can do in isolation, if you have a home spot or something close to that.
TSG are proud to announce their latest addition to their bike team, 21-year-old French freestyle BMX prodigy Anthony Jeanjean. Jeanjean’s love affair with BMX began at FISE Montpellier, aged 10. From that day on his line through life’s rhythm section was set – he was going to be a pro BMXer: “I knew that was what I wanted to do with my life,” says Jeanjean. “For me it was a goal and also a clear choice, I knew that was what I wanted to do with my life”
Jeanjean now joins TSG’s star-studded pro team: “We are so pleased to welcome Anthony Jeanjean into the Ride TSG family,” says CEO Ruedi Herger. “Not only is he an outstandingly skilful rider and competitor but he is also an incredible role model for BMX riders, present and future.”
Anthony’s BMX career is in full swing
Jeanjean burgeoning stash of trophies includes the first ever European freestyle BMX Championship crown; French BMX freestyle gold; and in 2019, after coming back from serious injury, his career came full circle with a win at the FISE Montpellier. “It was a very intense moment for me,” says Jeanjean. “Because I discovered BMX freestyle at FISE de Montpellier 10 years ago and my first competition was at FISE de Montpellier.”
Due to the current pneumonia epidemic (Covid-19) linked to the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) must announce that the next two rounds of the 2020 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup which were to take place in Manchester (Great Britain) on 18 and 19 April and in Papendal, Netherlands, on 2 and 3 May, will not take place on the scheduled dates. In line with its recommendations made last Sunday to organisers from countries identified at risk by health authorities, the UCI is fully supportive of the decisions taken by the British and Dutch organising committees to postpone the events based on directives adopted by their governments to counter the spread of the virus.
The European BMX Cup, the UCI BMX SX World Cup competitions and the Framed Festival at Papendal are canceled. Papendal has decided this after intensive consultation with the UEC, the UCI and other parties involved. This decision is inevitable due to the current corona crisis. The UEC European Cup would take place on April 25 and 26, followed by the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup and the Framed Festival from May 1 to 3. The corona crisis is gripping the entire world, developments are rapidly following each other, which entails an uncertain time for everyone. It is currently unclear how this crisis will develop in the near future.
The measures taken in the Netherlands, but also by other countries to prevent the spread of the virus, mean that we are forced to discontinue our preparations for the BMX competitions and the Framed Festival. Think of public life that is quiet in different countries, riders who cannot train because training locations are closed and borders that are closed so that one cannot travel.
Jochem Schellens, director Papendal: “This is a decision we take with pain in our hearts, but at the same time we have no other choice. We must put the safety and health of athletes, staff, crew, volunteers, spectators and other stakeholders first. It is not responsible at this time to bring together thousands of (international) racers and visitors. In addition, we have a social responsibility to take.

Unfortunately I'm spending too many days isolated at home for this damned disease that is the Covid-19, without riding, without training, only eating spaghetti and pizza the whole time. But, I had the idea to make a little tribute to the legendary "Le freaky bone" edit made few years ago by the MASTER Alex Liiv (that obviously obliterated my mind at that time).
