MERCEDES-BENZ GRAND BMX 2017 Czech BMX park championship in Brno


Nov 152017

This year’s Festival Life fair in Brno is behind us as well as the traditional important part of this event - Mercedes-Benz GRAND BMX, the Czech BMX Freestyle park Championship.

The huge mobile park included all mobile ramps from the VSA Xtreme agency as well as some other brand new custom made ramps by the company Park Pilot. So there were ideal conditions for the championship and the 60 attending riders well appreciated it and really enjoyed their runs.

Frist day at the Mercedes-Benz Freestyle zone was dedicated to young and amateur riders. The youngest group under 15 years of age contained 22 riders and despite the great difficulty of the park's obstacles, we could see some nice riding and great trick from the young guns. Finals of the under 15 category were followed by amateur under 18 category including 17 riders. Among the stars of this category were undoubtedly names such as VSA Xtreme team rider Michael Calta, Jonáš Skalka and the winner Miki Hovorka, who would with his riding and trick list definitely belong to the top 10 in the PRO category.

Second day of the Mercedes-Benz GRAND BMX 2017 started with the amateur under 18 category finals and the most anticipated PRO category. Ten of the best riders got to the PRO finals, which was the highlight and the biggest show of the whole weekend The finals included some well known names such as Honza Hanzlík, David Janáč, Michal Baránek, Radek Rýdl and the winner Zdeněk Pešek. Great surprise was also young rider from Častolovice Tom Beran, who finished his perfect runs with best trick – triple whip. Atmosphere aroud the park was amazing and the fans were constantly hyped not only by the tricks but also by some great DJ sets from Monster Energy DJ Lucky Boy, while Jeny Valenta moderated the race.
