Last weekend the Braun Flatground contest was held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. People from all over the world showed up. Jesse Puente, Chad Johnston, Paul Osika, Jeff Desroche and Shane Neville flew in from the West, Simon O'Brien arrived from Down Under, the Japanese delegation wasn't exactly small either. A dedicated Nathan Penonzek drove up from Malaga, Spain which was a 30 hour drive. Next to the flatland competitors we had a few surprise showings; vert rider Gerry Galley for instance, Amos Burke, the 414 crew from England and German flatland guru's Albert Retey, TG, Robert Moeller and Rollo. Also parked outside was a blue Ford Transit van with WeThePeople, Chico, Mars and HDT stickers. If you've been into BMX for a while you know that Marcus Arnoldi made it to Amsterdam as well. While talking to Marcus he mentioned that this would be the last trip for the Transit. The van is not going to make it through inspection so after a good 10 years and 467.000 kilometers of BMX trips it is time to say goodbye.
