THURSDAY, MAY 10 Qualification BMX Freestyle Spine Ramp Pro:
JunkieJam 2.0 at the Junktrails coming this 9th of June. As you may know these aren’t really trails but one wooden trickjump (6 feet high, 10,5 feet radius) with a soft landing and an old school quarterpipe we cut down this time to 6,5 feet high (with 8 feet radius) Last year everybody had a blast trying so many new tricks on this setup so there had to be a sequel…..
The jump was liked by all last year so no changes there. The roller coming into the jump was giving some people a bit of a problem but in true BMX spirit people were helped and coached so at the end everybody was having a good time. This year we will reshape the roller so more emphasis can be put on pushing for hard and new tricks on the jump. Music will be played, free beers will be shared and the BBQ will be lit and again we hope to see a lot of people push their limits without injuries.
Thanx to everybody that is helping but especially DTX13, 0172INK and Paul’s Boutique BMX Hardware Store.
See you guys there, we are expecting to start around 13:00 and the closest know location is Kleiweg 500 in Rotterdam! (just follow the flyover of the tram and watch behind the pillar)
Every brand has a logo, but few can claim a print like Vans can with Checkerboard. Born in Southern California and showcased on the world stage by legendary film slacker Jeff Spicoli, the iconic motif is now synonymous with Vans’ ubiquitous “Off The Wall” lifestyle. To bring the globally-recognized print to the streets and up to speed, Vans presents the Era Pro in Checkerboard, showcasing an elevated, performance-driven take on the original Era icon.
The Era Pro’s inception began when legend Tony Alva partnered with Vans by adding a padded collar and heel cap to the original Authentic to create the Era. Fast forward 40 years and the Era is fully engineered with Vans Pro Classics specifications, offering high impact UltraCush HD cushioning sockliners, Pro Vulc construction for better boardfeel, and lasting Duracap rubber reinforcements. The Era Pro remains as timeless as ever, combining two icons into one modern-day classic.
The Era Pro joins a growing list of heavy hitter Pro Classics, available now in a range of Checkerboard styles, including the Sk8-Hi Pro, Old Skool Pro, and Slip-On Pro. Backed by living legend Jason Dill and emerging style master Rowan Zorilla, it’s clear the future of Checkerboard will be every bit as rad as the past.

Spring has sprung which means it’s time to step away from the screen and get outside for some fun! Whether on a BMX bike or a skateboard, staying safe is of the utmost importance when it comes to playing on two wheels or four. Some would say that no one knows more about the importance of safety than Travis Pastrana and the Nitro Circus crew. The rambunctious group of Nitro Circus athletes have seen their fair share of crashes and that’s why they trust Bell Helmets to keep them safe. To encourage you to pursue your dreams safely, Nitro Circus has teamed up with renowned helmet brand Bell to create two youth multisport helmets, two full-face youth bike helmets, and a full-face child’s helmet that are all available to everyone at an accessible price.
“Money shouldn’t dictate whether or not your head is protected.” said Travis Pastrana on Nitro Circus’ partnership with Bell. “We want kids that are fans of action sports to be able to go out, have fun, and hone their skills, but to be safe while doing so. It was important to us to create helmets that are safe yet affordable for everyone”.
