A friday treat for us all!
The annual Vienna Jam during the Argus Bike Festival at Vienna’s Rathausplatz is growing each year. Tom Sevisual was on hand to document the weekend, and by the look of it this was an absolutely amazing weekend including a contest, workshops helping kids, cash for tricks jams and plenty of happy faces. Keep a look out for Viki Gomez’s bike flip line at 2:16 is amazing! Big up Sebastian Grubinger and everyone who worked on the Vienna Jam, this is awesome!

Repo: Sport Zone Veresegyház Contest

Text: Rob Alton.

On November 24th we held our second major contest at Sport Zone Veresegyház. I worked really hard to improve on last year’s contest in all departments. Thanks to our main sponsors Magnetic, IPF Corner, DMKER, Elite BMX Shop and Sport Zone we raised 1000 Euro for Pro purse. I hoped it would help bring some top Pro’s here and it did! We had 12 Pro riders from 6 countries, including the kids and Amateur riders a total of 34 competitors!
Róbert Völler “Minerboy” our live DJ was running the rider routines which made my day a lot easier. We also added new podiums and sponsor wall for the prize giving.

I split School Class into A and B classes, because there is a good step up now from the kids who are really practicing a lot. Recent contests in Hungary have really helped to motivate them. The B class was great to see as some of the kids have only been riding 5-6 weeks and still wanted to take part. Emma Kriston one of two girls at the school got second place! There is a separate video for each category on Youtube.

I would like to let the European Flatland Community know that I would happy to hold any International contests or Jams here. As I said we were 17 people and it was fine in Jam format. The space about 120m2 with OSB floor. So if anyone is interested let me know (via FB)!”
