Show at Bridging the Gap

Last weekend it was already time for the last show of the year. This year has passed by amazingly fast! I have done so many great things this year. Shows, competitions, trips, commercials etc. I’m really satisfied when I look back to 2014.

This weekend I was in Rotterdam for the Bridging the Gap event. An amazing event to promote the urban culture in Rotterdam. The event consisted of Freerunning, Freestyle Soccer, Panna Knock-Out, Dance & Dj Battle and Crossfit.

Together with my good friend Michael van der Kroft we torn up the dance floor! We did a little choreography, sync tricks and some freestyling. After the shows we got some amazing comments and reactions! There was a great vibe in general! And amazing way to finish of this year!

2nd Place at Battle in the Rockies

IMG_4291.JPG
Last week I was in Colorado Spring in the United States for Battle in the Rockies. I was really looking forward to this event after receiving my invitation that I got trough the video contest.

There was an amazing vibe at this contest! The days before the contest there where jams and best combo challenges at the main venue. The first day when I arrived I won the first “best combo challenge” after arriving from the airport!

Saturday the qualification was at the main venue. My qualification runs went great and I qualified in 1st place, which gave me a good advantage for the battles! The finals where held in a local club called The Mansion. We had a short practice and then it was time for the battles! A lot of great battle went down! I managed to battle my way to the final against Jean-William “Dub” Prevost. I was riding good and Dub was taking a lot of risks. Dub ended up taking the win with 2 of the 3 judges voting in his favor.

I’m really stoked with my 2nd place and my riding during this contest! A great way to finish this year! The whole vibe at this event was amazing! A big shout out to James McGraw who put this whole event together! I can’t wait to come back again next year!

7th Place BMX Flatland World Circuit Year Ranking

Last weekend Flat Ark was the final stop of the 2014 BMX Flatland World Circuit. I competed at 3 of the 5 stops and ended up taking 7th place at this years end ranking. I’m pretty happy with this result considering I didn’t go to all 5 stops. Now it’s time to train hard this winter to get a better result next year! Check out the full years end ranking on the BFWC website
