EUROBIKE Skyline goes BMX! Where last year the slopestyle mountain bike scene performed its tricks, in 2023 the BMX pros will demonstrate their skills. On both FESTIVAL DAYS, the twenty-inch scene meets at the exhibition center and competes on a spectacular ramp landscape.
Olympic champion Charlotte Worthington and Olympic bronze medalist Declan Brooks, both from the United Kingdom, will be there, as well as three-time European champion and World Cup winner Anthony Jeanjean from France, and Germany's Olympic sixth-placed national squad driver Lara Lessmann and her teammate Paul Thölen. By the way, those who have not yet been nominated have the chance of one of four wildcards for the contest – at the BMX Jam on June 3rd in Frankfurt's Osthafen.
The Rimowa x Nigel Sylvester collba as explained by Nigel himself: For years I’ve traveled the globe with my BMX bike via a repurposed golf travel bag. Not by choice, but because the options are limited in my sport. I desired a more designed-forward solution, and realized there was a void. I connected with the RIMOWA team over a year ago with the intention to create the bike case of the future. They assembled a dream team of designers and after many iterations, countless design sessions, we designed the first-ever RIMOWA BMX travel case.
I'm grateful and honored for the trust that my favorite luggage brand put in me to help co-design this
No sport has benefited more from Red Bull's investment than the world of BMX. The Austrian energy drink company began investing in the sport back in 2001, and now the invitation-only Red Bull Rampage competition is the most lucrative events in the world. Superstars of the sport such as Canadian trio Brandon Semenuk, Kurt Sorge, and Brett Rheeder have all made the competition their home in recent years, racking up nine titles between them and hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money.
But it isn’t just the world of BMX that has seen investment from the Austrian giant in recent years

Having conquered the world of chain lube, Muc-Off, the global leaders in bicycle and motorcycle care and performance is proud to announce that it’s extending its offering from the shed to the bed, with the launch of Muc-Off Sex Lube.
In a recent consumer study, Muc-Off asked its fans which products they’d like the brand to develop next. Sex Lube was the most popular suggestion. The Digital Marketing Team also discovered that the third most popular Google branded search term was ‘Can I use Muc-Off lube for more than just my bike?’.
These insights prompted the appointment of a new crack team of sexologists who set about producing a lube designed to withstand the demands of the most intense sexual encounters, whether riding solo, with a partner, or even as part of a group.
Borrowing technology from its high-performance chain lubes such as the world-renowned Ludicrous AF, this new Sex Lube has been formulated to deliver ultra-smooth, long-lasting, and repeatable results. The unique formula facilitates self-lubricating capabilities which optimises friction levels and reduces power loss, whilst the high-pressure additives provide unrivalled durability in dry, moist, and fully wet conditions.
“We worked long and hard to develop a deep penetrating lubricant that fills that sweet spot between smoothness and abrasion. With our bicycle lubes the target is to hit zero friction, but following round,
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
