What made you decide to build your own ramp?
Drew Bezanson: I always love having my own ramps to ride. As a kid I had a mini ramp in the attic of my parents garage, its still there till this day. In 2017 I moved into a place that had the space for a backyard ramp and I jumped on the opportunity. I was a little burnt out on riding public parks at the time, having to worry about where people were at when trying to do lines, film, shoot photos, etc. I needed a spot where I could fill my craving for BMX. That is why you haven't really seen any footage come out from the yard. I love when the sessions get wild and everyone is in on it, not asking someone to stop and film something, just enjoy the session.

It had been six years since Red Bull put on a BMX event in The Netherlands. In 2013 Framed Reaction brought many pro park riders to Amsterdam and this time Uncontained invited 16 riders to come to Nijmegen. The course that was built was huge and extra practice was needed to get used to it. 2 teams were formed with Drew Bezanson and Daniel Wedemeijer being the team captains. Corey Walsh (CAN) and Mykel Larrin (USA) were injured and could not make it over to The Netherlands. Anthony Jeanjean (FRA) and Kieran Reilly (GBR) were their replacement riders. But there was still a week to go before the comp happened and on day one Tom Justice (GBR) overshot the big step up and hurt his ribs taking him out for a few days. Then Kieran Reilly knocked himself out during an Electric MX bike session and received 7 stitches in his head because of the crash. Morgan Wade (USA) arrived and crashed on a 720 on the step-up and broke his foot. Add to that Drew's situation of still recovering from a broken femur and then crashing on his head that left him with a swollen eye before the event event started.
The rough week didn't show when it was time to start the team contest on Saturday night. Red Bull turned the cold and desolate building into a booming disco with lights, bar, music, big screens and big ramps. With riders like Tom van den Bogaard, Ben Wallace, Jason Watts, Jake Leiva, Alex Coleborn,
BMX Park sensation Drew Bezanson is back from injury and ready to break the internet one more time with this follow-up to Joyride 150.
