New Suger hills
It wasn’t sure where the 21st FAT-JAM was going to be held. A new location had been allocated but the neighborhood protested so it’s back to the good old spot, and how. The trails got flattened, but were built back up again with the help of a crane and a dozen riders with a shovel. New lay-out, more space and a few truckloads of good dirt. It would actually have been a shame to leave a spot with so much BMX history, a location that put Aarle-Rixtel on the BMX map, worldwide.
No stress, no security, free to ride, free to spectate, time to ride some trails, even if you never do ride in the dirt. Nobody cares you’re not making it through the lines the first time. If you pull it off at the end of the day that will be your personal victory. Or if you’re learning a new trick, there will be plenty of riders to give you tips. But hey, this is the FAT-JAM, nobody tells you what to do, as long as you have a good time. Bring your own drinks and if you forgot to do some shopping,Monster Energy is bringing some cans of the green stuff to Aarle-Rixtel. And not only that, they’ll set up the DJ booth too so count on some good sound on Saturday 22nd. A BBQ will be set up as well so if you bring the meat, or buy some at the local grocery store (open till 5pm), just throw it on there. If this sounds like something you’re into, come on over. The day starts around 1pm so you can even sleep in. As usual we will do some small competitions around 4pm where you can win some prizes that were donated by our awesome sponsors. They make a fun and free day like this possible so support those who support you. After a full day of riding and hanging out, the program continues at OJA in Aarle-Rixtel. The wildest place in town and a perfect combination when it comes down to a BMX party. Live bands? Count on that. Cheap beer? Sure.
