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.
For this weeks throwback we go back to 2002 and a lil highlights section from OG Marton’s Trickstar 4 video, featuring Trevor Meyer, Hiro Morisaki, Effraim Catlow, a very young Adam Kun, Marton Szilagyi, Phil Dolan, and Albert Retey.
This new edit celebrating Marton Szilagyi turning 45 years old has made my day! One of the most skilled dudes in the game, that doesn’t seem to have aged at all. Timeless riding, make sure you give this one a watch! Happy 45th birthday Marton!
Don’t sleep on this amazing edit by Olivér Kállai from this years KTGM Flatland jam that took place in Budapest, Hungary on September 12-13th. Great mix of riding styles featuring Tamas Varga, David Szabo, Pal Gyenes, Gabor Nagy (check the control on the multiple whiplashes at 2:52), Gabor Pasztor, Akos Bordas, Denes Katona (section from 4:00, look out for ET forward pedal truck around the 4:29 mark!), Jan Schmidt, Andras Domany (section from 7:00), Marton Szilaygi drops a couple of lines from the 9:34 mark, David Mezei, Rob Alton, Istvan Dibusz, Norbert Schmelhaus, Balazs Csaszar, and Mihaly Hajnacs. Hungary has for as long as I can remember had one of the best riding scenes in the world, and doesn’t disappoint here!
For the weeks throwback we go back to 1996/97 and a video put together by Eduardo Sousa and Colin Smith. Featuring the likes of Amos Burke, James White, yours truly, Phil Dolan, Andrew Faris, Jesse Puente, Day Smith, Marton Szilagyi and many more!
