Lost of things are happening in the BMX scene right now and, as always, everybody has an opinion about what direction BMX Freestyle has to go…. Well this story will stay away from that discussion and will focus on why we (people with passion for the sport) wanted to start 2019 with a Bang and a Jam! Our beloved sport is coming from an all-time low and we noticed new faces popping up at the locals and commercial parks. Also it was time to get the scene together as a whole, no more politics but sharing the passion we all have for 16” up till 26”wheels, as one!

Not only park rats needed to come out but also street riders needed to be attracted. Skateland Rotterdam has for all these riders obstacles they like to shred so we got in touch with them and without hesitation they agreed to open up their park for this event and even stepped up to the plate to make the entry free for all the riders. Because time and budget was limited we needed people to people to help us for free…

After a long overdue return of one of our favorite segments we’ve done over the years “I Got $5 On It” is back! We start back with Ross Albreski cruising the Cap Hill and downtown area catchI get some clips with the help of the boys and Paul Smith. Our final clip was cut short due to being attacked by some homeless men who decided they needed bombard us with everything they had. So needless to we escaped unscathed with Ross and the rest of the boys making jokes and having a good time as we do.
So me and Jordan were working on a YouTube video and when we got to the skate park for the last day of filming we realised the lighting had changed and two lights were out. We scrapped the whole video and filmed this instead in an hour or so. Here's something short and sweet.
