Added a new video Niels Bensink - DIVERGENCE 11/9/2020 11:18 AM

Divergence is a short film in association with Radon Bikes featuring Niels Bensink. The video is filmed and edited by fellow BMX racer Niek Kimmann. After more than 18 years of racing BMX, Niels sets his sights on a new adventure as he diverges from his standard routine in the Netherlands. He will be making the move to Langley, BC Canada, early next year to get even more time on the bike and to explore more of the mountainbike scene. In a video that has it all, from BMX race, pump track, dirt jumps to enduro, Niels tries to project his passion and appreciation for bikes and the beauty of two wheels onto your screen by going back to the roots. ‘’With time to think this year and having way more hours on the bike than other years I came to the conclusion that there is more to life than just riding 20-inch bikes. This also means I will part ways with Team Oegema TVE as working together from Canada is just not possible. Mountainbiking and pumptrack is something I grew up with from a young age and now that I’m making the big move to Canada, it is a great opportunity to focus on this more and I’m excited to start building a new playground from the ground up. BMX will always be a big part of my life, but what I need right now is a new and exciting environment to develop myself more in different ways. This project is something Niek and I had in mind for a long time now and it couldn’t have come at a better time. No matter what bike you owe, I hope this fires you up to go out and just ride. ‘’ Enjoy!

Added a new video Bensink End of Era Jam 10/8/2020 12:53 AM

The end of an era has come. After more than 15 years the Bensink BMX Gates compound will be taken down. To celebrate the history, work hours, progression, jams, sessions and all the other memories it was time for one last jam. Over the years the yard has grown to be a BMX and mountainbike heaven with multiple riding options for everyone including a pumptrack, race track, dirt jumps and trickjump. We invited 100 riders to join Niels Bensink for one last ride and to enjoy all the new lines and jumps that hadden't seen a jam yet. The day was all about fun with friends with good music by a Red Bull DJ, a BBQ, many drinks and a bonfire. Luckily the weather was on our sides too with sunshine all day. All-in-all it made for good times, some crashes and plenty of laughs that went on till late in the night. Next to just sessioning we also set out some little events like high jump, best scrub, long jump, best whip, best trick and many more with prizes for the winners. In the end it was the best goodbye the yard could wish for and an emotional night for sure! Thanks to the following partners for making it happen: Bensink BMX Gates RedBull Radon Bikes Vee Tire Co Meybo Bikes Boost Pumptracks
