After a BMX absence for two years, the bikes were back at the Freestyle.ch event in Zurich, Switzerland. A bunch of vert riders made it over to the Landiwiese a.o. CJ Kraft, Dick Slater, Achima Colada, Jason Barnham, Johnny Walker, Mike Scamcuso, OBD, JMB, Matt Fairburn and the Spanish Fly.
Friday saw the high air competition. It's a great way to start the session when everyone is getting used to the ramp. Loads of flat bottom landings were made on the Vertical ramp which was a bit over-vert on the side where the height pole was. The pole was 4 meters high and Jason Barnham
from Chicago aired the highest in front of a big Freestyle.ch party crowd. Jimmy Walker
's inverts were super high too but with the lowest part of the bike counting, his bars took off two feet of his actual aerial. After all was said and done, it was back in the big shuttle bus towards the Ibis/Novotel. Friday night saw some crazy party happening at the local bars close to the hotel which ended in the Big Ben Bar.
