Kick-off of the UEC BMX European league
Last weekend we departed along with more than 5000 others to Zolder for the kick-off of the UEC BMX European league. We where more often in Zolder but we have never see as much as caravans and campervans ever before, and all hotels were fully booked within a radius of 30 km. A record number of participants 2756 bmxers had registered from 30 countries. BMXers came not only from Europe but also from Colombia, Japan and Brazil, among others. Because there where so many participants there where only 2 manches in block 1 and block 2. Also the level was very high which resulted that unfortunately many good Dutch riders early dropping out. We saw that quite a lot of riders went down. Everyone that has not yet to recovered we want to wish them get well. Hopefully you are all back again next weekend. Our next stop will be hopefully with ek Klazienaveen in a tent with beautiful presentation where you may borrow a test pants to see for yourself how much better a Imala pants is. More about this later.
