It's great to see new riding spots pop up. Pump tracks are all the craze but a large asphalted Velosolutions riding spot isn't in every city's budget. Sometimes you have to work with what you're offered and the hard working crew in Oirschot pulled off a new spot next to the public swimming pool in the woods. Daniel Wijsmuller designed and shaped the Kemmertrails and during the opening plenty of people turned up for the first few laps. With a table/double line on the outside and a pump track in the middle it is a sweet spot for anyone on two wheels. Because the top layer isn't made of asphalt, you won't see many scooter kids/skateboarders/inline skaters around. BMX and MTB riders however can enjoy their bikes at the open and free spot in Oirschot, just 10 minutes outside of Eindhoven, NL.
When you have confirmed riders like Leandro Moreira, Nick Bruce, Jonathan Camacho, Pat Casey, Irek Rizaev, Kenneth Tencio and two of the Peraza brothers on the riders list, you better make sure you head down the comp. Dirt this time and it will be held in XICOTEPEC, PUEBLA, MEXICO. With a Pro purse of $ 10,000.= USD in the pot you can expect some craziness on DECEMBER 2ND & 3RD during the XICOTE BMX BMX dirt contest.
Mix in the wild locals and you are entering a party you don't want to miss. A big roll-in will lead to three doubles followed by a quarter that leads to either the left or the right depending on where you want to go. The Xicote Best Trick award is worth $1,000.= bucks so expect even more madness when that goes on.
After our successful Art in the Parks project the park is looking better than it ever has thanks to the work of Lamkat and Laura Alvarez. The past seven years has been a great journey as the park transformed and our community grew bringing in new riders of all ages. Thanks to supporters like you we have been able to turn around our space with the help of volunteers, community organizations, bicycle companies, and local politicians who have supported our project. We could not be happier with how this year has gone, and are looking forward to a great 30th year in 2018, with more great events, new additions to the park, and fun for all ages. The park is currently closed Tuesday and Thursday until summer season begins, and the park is free to use as always.
For the first time in its history, Mellowpark in Berlin has started a crowdfunding campaign to finance a new project. By supporting this campaign, bike enthusiasts, fans and visitors of Europe’s biggest skate- and BMX-park can help with the creation of the largest and most spectacular ramp-paradise in Europe. With up to 6-meter high ramps, endless lines and over 3000sqm of space, the planned BMX-Superpark in Berlin would blow the dimensions of what Europe’s BMX-scene is used to so far. Over the next 4 weeks, the crew behind Mellowpark is looking to collect the seed capital for their ‘Project M’ through crowdfunding.
“We have never asked our friends and visitors for help before, have always managed to finance
Rick Thorne's Pool Seekers "Furstcastle". The Pool Seekers hunt down and session 'Furstcastle' the biggest backyard pool in America which holds 200,000 gallons of water. The boys were beyond stoked for this legendary session.
The Pool Seekers shred in the desert with the legendary Steve Alba (aka "‘Salba"), one of the skateboarding’s truest pool skaters in the game. Salba gives us the ultimate history lesson in pool skating. Skate or die, party at the pool.
