Cologne, July 20th, 2018 —SNIPES Battle Square is bringing both a NEW BMX Flatland event and a fundamentally new event format to Rotterdam. – On Saturday, August 4, 2018, 14­ of the world’s best professional BMX Flatland athletes together with OPEN Class amateur riders will be competing and showing spectacular moves and tricks on their BMX bikes. This fascinating freestyle discipline represents the symbiosis of BMX riding and Breakdancing.

On the first Saturday of August 2018 the last Dutch great “ship of state” SS Rotterdam and SNIPES Battle Square will present a unique event format with this new BMX event. In Rotterdam, the SNIPES Battle Square will start its tour of seven stages across Europe in 2019.

One day loaded with the “Best of the Best” in the sport — 14 BMX Flatland riders from the Netherlands, USA, Canada, Spain, France, Czech Republic, England, and Germany will compete against each other and fight to win a total of EUR 7,500 prize money. The athletes will be performing to various types of music and to the voice of one of the best MC’s in BMX: Zach “Catfish” Yankush from USA.

Two Dutch BMX Flatland heroes will be defending their territory and are most likely podium candidates in this BMX Flatland battle. Sietse van Berkel lives in Utrecht and has been riding BMX for over 14 years. The MOORA-Cup awards nominated him as the “BEST Dutch” BMX Flatland rider of the years 2016 and 2017. In 2012, Sietse had his international contest debut at the BMX Freestyle World Championships in Cologne, Germany where he made the podium by winning the 3rdplace. Ever since 29-year-old Sietse has been riding and performing in contests and shows worldwide, he has collected several titles, and he continues being a great ambassador for the sport.

Dez Maarsen is based in Haarlem and started riding at the age of 14. Dez who is 29 years old has been taking podium spots in various national and international BMX Flatland events worldwide. He is known for his creativity and establishing new tricks and combinations on his BMX bike.

It is going to be a tough battle in a very strong field of participants; Snipes’ very own BMX team rider Dominik Nekolny, CZE as well as Kevin Nikulski, GER are experienced riders and will compete for a podium spot at this first SNIPES Battle Square too.

“FREE ADMISSION”, everybody is welcome – hardcore BMX fans as well as families and all individuals that like excitement. The event format promises an open and friendly atmosphere in one of the most significant locations next to the well-known late steamship SS Rotterdam. The Lido Terrace on board the ship will be open to our visitors and provide drinks & food all day long.

Hope to see you there.
