Four months of hard work finally paid off on Saturday at Sport Zone. The larger room and new floor was perfect! Three riders could ride at the same time and we definitely needed the extra space as there were 36 riders from 5 countries at the event. It was a combined contest, the Hungarian Championships in collaboration with Bringasport (Hungarian Cycle Federation) and the Veres Verseny 2019.
This weekend coming up, the Sportzone contest is supported by the Hungarian Cycle Federation and the November 23rd contest will also be the Official Hungarian BMX FLATLAND Championship with Junior, Girls, Amateur and Pro Classes. It will run together with the Veres BMX FLATLAND Contest and we will take out highest places to find the Hungarian Champions. 200m2 of a new perfect flatland floor the only of it’s kind in Europe!

Keelan Phillips just hit me up with news of a contest he is having on Sunday 3rd November at the International Centre in Telford, UK.
If you can’t make the Fise and UCI world Champs this one could be for you.
Keelan says “The idea behind this comp is to bring back the excitement and fun, no judging for consistency, riders wont be marked down for attempts only for what they land, quality over quantity. The comp will be held on November 3rd, one class to see who the ultimate freestyler is. Qualifying will be 2 x 2 min runs, finals will be 1 on 1 battles. Hotel at a discounted rate if needed. And held at one if the biggest car shows in the UK! For any info please get in touch with Keelan on his social media or insta page @ultimatefreestylecomp.”
