Just before 2018 NorthJam, we spoke with Monster Energy BMX rider Jason Eustathiou about the contest.
Hello Jason, tell us a few words about Northjam.
"Northjam is taking place for the fifth consecutive year, with great attendance from Greek athletes and also atlhetes from neighbouring countries and that gets me so excited for what's about to happen during the contest. When the date was announced i got so pumped, cause its a great opportunity for me to visit Thessaloniki, ride my bike and see my friends once again. Of course the contest is the most important thing. The atmosphere in Northpark is always friendly and very pleasant for me to ride. Everyone will try to show the audience top skill level. Evenven if you don't climb the podium in this contest,the excitement and adrenaline rush when you excel yourself. That's a win and you get to leave with great memories."
What's your advice for the new riders?
"My message to the new riders is not to shy away from competition. When your run starts, your only opponent is yourself. Just relax, push past your limits and enjoy the ride. That is my goal, do something new everytime and enjoy the park to it's fullest. It's not everyday you get to ride such a place amongs so many riders. I can't wait for 25th! See you there guys!"
