The plan was to make one jump rideable at the opening of the new pump track in Helmond. And even that was an impossible task. It rained cats and dogs and the spot looked more of a mud hole than a BMX pump track. Still about 40 people showed up with umbrella's and rain coats to unmask the official Flame Trails sign. After that the whole crew moved to a warmer place where the speeches were held by Mrs. Houthoofd, Gerrit Does and 2 of the locals. All in all it didn't take too long for the spot to get approved and built. It seemed that everyone involved wanted to get it done and believed in the little project. Now it's just waiting for the sun to come out for a few days. The first Flame Trails jam has been scheduled for 2 May.
Las Vegas is full of concrete action sports parks and events but they don't "just get there". There are people working hard to make the dreams come true and now they need a bit of your support: The City is facing some hard times and has to make very difficult decisions in the next month or so. If you value the Vegas Am Jams and other City of Las Vegas programs, and don't want to see the programs cut because of budget issues, please attend one of the Town Hall meetings below and let the city administration and City Council know that the services we provide are valued by the community.
There are only 5 more opportunities to let the City of Las Vegas know what programs and services you value in your community and which programs you don't want to see cut because of budget issues. These town hall meetings are for Las Vegas residents to weigh-in on city services and resources they value, and this input will be used by city management and the City Council to help make informed, strategic decisions based on residents priorities.
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.
