For the first time SB Events organized a Mind the Gap stop in Amsterdam. There was a big international field of riders from the States, Ireland, UK, France, Poland and of course some great Dutch riders.
Mind the Gap was held at the Westerpark next to the Ton Ton Club and at the end of the day Julien Cudot from France skated away with one of the best runs ever done on the Mind the Gap setup.
Second place was Danny Allbridge who already won the Dutch Championships spine and third place went to best Dutch rider Tom v. Hemert.
To continue the streak, he took the first place the junior contest of the Winterclash early 2016. In between all the contests he’s been putting time in to finishing this new street profile. Filmed in cities all over the Netherlands.
Maybe the best and most fun promo you have ever seen. 29th of april | Museumplein.
Right After the Dutch Open Championship Spine Ramp we will depart from the Museumpsquare on an epic adventure through the city. Starting point will be the infamous Museumplein ramp, right in the city centre.
Your objective is simple: team up with your buddy and get from checkpoint A to B as fast as you can. Every checkpoint has it’s own little assignment for you both to complete.
Make sure you film your tricks and post them on Instagram, as proof for the judges. We will reveal the checkpoints at the start, it’s up to you which route you’ll take. We’ll be waiting at the finish line where cold beers and the party await.
Spectator level: it is only possible to watch people cross the finish. Best way to do this is with a beer.
Beginners participation level: as long as you can skate around the city and are not afraid to try a few jumps you are good Amateur participation level: Allot of fun for amateurs to team up with a buddy and cruise the city.
