The miniramp is the oldest ramp at the indoorpark REITHALLE and, at over 20 years old, a real mid-school classic - and it is precisely these mid-schoolers who can feel addressed today! On April 1st, and I'm not kidding here, there will be a BMX jam on this miniramp. The whole thing starts at 6 p.m. and ends when it ends. Invited are all people who can do something with a mini ramp and want to meet old and new friends, so rather FSK 18.
There are non-cash prizes for some campaigns such as Best Trick, Best Line, NBDs, etc.
The whole thing is supported by the team of the Reithalle Ulm (we make the ramp nice again), but above all with drinks from Fritz Cola for all visitors. Ralf Schiefer from the Schickeria BMX Shop also drove his golden Maybach out of the garage to get a few prizes out. You'll see if it's actually going to be mid-school prizes when you drop by. For all those who find midschool f***ing lame or are afraid of transitions and what not, of course the whole indoor place will be open and rideable!
Last night I wrote an info piece on the upcoming Mini FATJAM with details on where, who, what, when, and why. Then, when I wanted to add a photo, things got weird and the write-up disappeared. I hate it when that happens as writing it for a second time is never the same. Now I want to rush this as I had already typed things up last night. But anyway, here we go again so you have the info you need when making plans to come to Aarle-Rixtel on Saturday 25 March 2023.
The Mini FATJAM will held at the Sugar Hills, located at the Valkendijk in Aarle-Rixtel. Google it, check the distance, and then say; let's GO! The trails have been fixed up and are in good condition, even now already so pre-sessions are possible. They are free now and they will be free on 25 March, as is parking, spectator access, toilet use, etc. We just want to get everyone together to celebrate the opening of the outdoor season.
With a bit of luck we can convince Masterchef Fritske Maat again to flip some burgers. Feel free to bring your own booze/drinks/snacks/food/chairs/tents as we're not out there to make money on this as we haven't from the start. The trails have been around since 1990 and has hosted two jams every year. It would be easy to call it quits and enjoy the weekend off, but it brings so much joy to all the BMX-ers from the 4 year old nibbler to the 50+ old school crew. There's something to ride for everyone, from little rollers to table tops to doubles and of course the KILLER jump. We just want to remind you that doing
