The NBR jam was a big success. Good BMX sessions simply rule. We posted a report on the Jam earlier this month. If you missed it, you can click [url=//fatbmx.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=1179]here[/url] to read what was going on and check some photos.
But there's more! Vladdie de Koning, one of the organizers of the NBR jam finished editing a sweet movie of the riding that took place in Middelburg, The Netherlands on 14 January.
Today the mini ramp contest took place at the BMX Games in Australia. FATBMX reporter Atosha came through once again. Thanks a bunch:
It was a well contested final with each rider getting one minute for their run, and then a jam session format was in place for 10 minutes with the top eight riders split into two groups. Ryan Guettler qualified for the finals is second place. This led to Guettler pulling out all the stops and trying everything to regain his position at the top. But Clint Bensley was certainly a match for him today, Guettler flaired on the wall, Bensley flaired over the spine in response.
You get the picture.
On second thoughts just take a look at the pictures, they tell the story.
