Ramp building is something a lot of people can do. But when it comes down to designing and building in a short period of time, you will be able to decide the men from the boys. Currently a crew of ramp builders have made it to Amsterdam to finish up the course for the Red Bull Framed Reactions. Instead of starting from scratch, the crew had a lot of ramps available already as all the Red Bull Skylines ramps had been transported to Amsterdam a few months ago. But the ramp set-up in the Westerpark next week won't bee the same as the

Amsterdam isn't a city I visit all too often but with the Red Bull Framed Reactions event coming up I was in town a few times already this year. I'd heard about the new bowl that Miktor and Molf put together as an art project. It doesn't matter where the money comes from, as long as there are more spots to ride. This one however is hidden on the NDSM warf in Amsterdam north. Actually it's only 100 meters from Skatepark Amsterdam and 50 meters from the Red Bull offices. But still you won't see it.

Last week the Russian BMX Award show took place in Moscow. It's the Russian version of the Nora Cup which they've put on for the last couple of years. It's a legit event, put on by BMX-ers for BMX-ers and it gets the scene together in the heart of winter. And cold it was. -25 at night, but once inside things were warm and comfy. For this year's edition Aaron Ross and Matthias Dandois along with myself received an invite to experience the event. Aaron couldn't make it because of a bum ankle but Matthias and I met up in Prague and took the last plane to Moscow.
A lot of times it comes down to the same people caring about the scene. In Italy they've got a crew with a BMX passion called NoSoccer (Alessandro Civera, Frederico, Angelo). Their latest project is getting an indoor place to ride for the winter. Easier said than done but the place is ready and for 5 Euros per session you can ride till the end of February 2013. Beats the cold, the rain and the snow.
We should all push BMX to grow in 2013. Create spots, organise
