BMX is something I’ve done myself for 20 years. I love it. And even if I haven’t ridden a BMX in like… 6 or 7 years, I still love it. So when round 11 and 12 of the European Championships 2011 came to Haaksbergen, a place about 20 minutes from my birth-town, I decided I wanted to be there.
And I was there. And boy, did that itch come back full force! I wanted to bike so badly!
Great experience, great to see those guys (and gals) fly over the track. Great to see how things have staid the same, yet have changed so much.
Too bad Finland doesn’t have a BMX-racing scene. I definitely would be part of it if it would have (something anywhere close)…
The first image, as were most of the other images I shot during this day, was part of a burst of images I shot. I put one of them together in an image sequence, so you can see part of the awesomeness of this exhilarating (and since the last Olympics in Beijing) an official Olympic sport!
