If you're organizing an event, you want people to know about it. We get sent posters all the time and try to add them to the FAT Friday post along with the upcoming BMX events. But did you know that you can enter your event to the FATBMX Event schedule yourself? By doing so all the necessary info will be listed. Your event will be shown in the event schedule on the site and closer to the actual date it will be spread out over the FAT Friday subscribers. Jam, contest, gathering, race, it doesn't matter as long as it's BMX related.
Be prepared because this is what the Banks is going to look like this Weekend Especially since our friend Steve Rodriguez from 5 Boro is planning to have a little impromptu rally/gathering at the Banks this Saturday January 23 @ 1PM. (weather permitting). Fuel TV will be there to do a little piece on it. Please try to come out to save the Brooklyn Banks in NYC.
What do you do? Wait till spring and start building then, or start building now and hope you get to ride before spring? Sure, the new pump track in Helmond Brandevoort is muddy right now, but give it a dry week and kids will be putting on the gloves to give a few laps. Stoked on having this spot so close to home. The daily posts on the site will suffer, but for a good reason...
Plans for a little pump track were made a while ago but since yesterday things started moving, quickly! Dirt was transported to the spot in Brandevoort all day long and this morning the digger started to shape the dirt into a little pump track. Good thing is that this place is 1km from my house, they're building it to a few drawings I made and it will be public for everyone to use. Of course you'll get your updates here on the FATBMX site and we'll let you know when the place needs shaping. That is if you can make your way through the snow to get
Fids is looking for people who can help out getting an old skatepark back. But how? Well, the park is still there but filled in with sand and other rubbish. From the looks of the photos it looks like a great place to ride/skate once the filling is out. Doing this on your own will take forever, but if 100 people show up with shovels and one of your friends owns a little digger, the place could be rideable in the summer time. Instead of sending petitions to the local council for a
If your local park is about to be closed because they want to build something else on the property that makes more money, it's time to get loud. Help the Trick Factory keep their place up. Here's the latest status: -The Trick Factory may have to close/relocate if permission is granted to build houses on its current location.
Here's an update on the plans and status of the banks:
The Brooklyn Bridge is in urgent need of rehabilitation, and this project is slated to begin in 2010 and expected to finish in 2014. During this time, a portion of the Brooklyn Banks will be closed for use by the contractor. When the storage area is established, more
We'd heard about this spot in Geldrop but had never been to it. A little search on Google gave us the street name (Thorin) and the search was on. On the way we passed a little miniramp and street ramps and just 2 minutes after that we made it to the dirt spot. A zigzag fence was placed to keep the mopeds out which was good. I'm not sure where you rode when you were a kid but this is certainly one of those places for starters. Once they get better or grow older the jumps will grow with it. Basically it has one starting hill and three
Camp-Ramps just finished the action sports park in Düsseldorf Ulenberg Park. The Skate- and BMX-Scene organised the money from the council and managed to get a huge skatepark.
The Camp-Ramps Team build a huge line of different elements. A big Roll-In gives the speed to jump over a Jump Box with Hip-landing, followed by a Spine with two different height levels. A big Quarter completes the run. For further information check our homepage camp-ramps.com.
A special Thanks goes to Alexander from skAIDboard e.V. and to Sebo for their engagement and help! So if you want to ride a excellent set-up with a lot of airtime, meet a really friendly and strong scene and enjoy a perfectly build wooden Skatepark you should come to Düsseldorf!
