USWA 2017 SOULCYCLE BMX CHAMPIONSHIPS ROUND 2
"Such a sick event! This shows what BMX stands for in the Netherlands!"
Last week our capital was all about the Urban Sports Week Amsterdam. From 6 till 9 July there where different kinds of urban sports which could be practiced and seen. BMX was represented with an own event, the Soulcycle BMX Championships!
Riders from all over the world came to Amsterdam to compete for the prize money (over €12.000), ride together and have an awesome time! The spectators could hang out on Amsterdam’s Museumplein, watch some amazing BMX riding and enjoy the very chilled vibe that the Urban Sports Week Amsterdam has to offer!
The Museumplein was crammed with BMX parks for all BMX disciplines. Soulcycle organized contests for dirt, spine mini, park, flatland and street. Besides that there was a BMX video contest in which multiple crews participated. The videos that were premiered showed what BMX street is all about! The Onwies Knallen crew took the first place and won €1.000. Amsterdam is a urban sport city for sure!
This year it was the second time that the Soulcycle BMX Championships took place. Different this year, compared to the first time a year before, is that all contests where concentrated on the Museumplein. Also we did add the video contest and the spine mini contest. “The best part about this event is that BMX riders from the Netherlands and from abroad gathered. Furthermore; a challenging event, good weather and a good vibe.”, BMX rider Joeri Veul said.
The Soulcycle BMX Championships counts 150 riders. Not only professionals and amateurs from the Netherlands but also riders from Argentina, Belgium, Colombia, Chili, Germany, England, France, Hungary and Russia came! The level of BMX is really high nowadays and that we have seen back at this ultimate event. The riders did whatever they could do to amuse the crowd and to get placed in the finals.

The Urban Sports Week Amsterdam is an unique event whereby Soulcycle gave all attention to BMX. What BMX rider Janos Baars said about this event: “Such a sick event! This shows what BMX stands for in the Netherlands!" And we agree. The Soulcycle BMX Championships Round II was a blast and we can’t wait to see everyone next year at the USWA 2018 Soulcycle BMX Championships!
