We've added a bunch of great events to our list today. First of all the Snipes Battle Square in Rotterdam, Netherlands on August 4. It's kind of a kick-off event for a series which will feature 7 events in 2019. The pro class of this first event seems to be invitation-only while the amateur class is open. Check out the press release for more information. We can't wait for the 2019 series - this project sounds very promising!
Next up is the Tartiflat jaminAnnecy, France at the first weekend of September. The concept evolves around French cheese, tricks and good humor: "On Saturday, jam and challenges at the spot of Les Villards-sur-Thônes: Reblochon and Tomme (local cheese) to win. Then in the evening, the aperitif and tartiflette will be served in the room near the spot. Sunday, hangover session at Paquier on Annecy lake sides."
The 9th edition of the KTGM Jam will take place on September 15 in Budapest, Hungary: "Riders from all around Europe will meet up on the huge spot of KTGM (3500m2, 38000ft2) for the weekend, crowned by the JAM on Saturday, to train, chill and get motivated. On Saturday afternoon, everyone can be part of the best trick contest. The top 3 riders can put their hands on the high-value prizes and the awesome trophies."
Straight outta Saga city - here are 15min of hardcore riding from the annual Saga No Run contest. It took place last weekend. For some reason this event is kind of under the radar for people from outside of Japan. It's taking place every year but it's hard to find information about it. However there is an article on the local newspaper (of course in Japanese) and this video of the 2018 pro finals. Enjoy!
The first round of the Overground Series took place in Brazil last week. Congratulations to Romulo Guerra on his first place in the pro class! The next round is scheduled for the first weekend of August. MUF Midia posted a big photo gallery on Facebook. Check out Luis Arroz's video if you're keen to see some footage.
