Bonn, August 2nd, 2006 T-Mobile goes BMX. The cellular phone network broadens its existent engagement in cycling and gets involved with BMX sports in terms of national and re-gional support. The rebeljam in Berlin presents the ideal platform. From this summer on T-Mobile Germany gets in the national BMX scene and wants to support the twenty inch community targeted with helpful arrangements and push BMX sports forward in Germany. In the past US heroes like Ryan Nyquist and Dave Mirra have been already supported by the cellular phone network’s US sister com-pany. Through this support T-Mobile also previously attracted the German scene’s attention.
One of the first among counted arrangements is the support of BMX halls and spots: The Tretlagerhalle in Emmering got a Monster-Box, which was successfully inaugurated at the Country Bikes Contest on July 24th - 25th, 2006. In the BMX Park in Darmstadt T-Mobile provided a new ramp combination. The Playground Hall Aurich, the Roof BMX-Halle in Berlin and the Abflughalle Grevenbroich are also being backed up and are busy constructing their obstacles.
