Evals Jam 2017

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in News, Video
Evals Jam 2017 – There’s something special about end of year jams. They give you the opportunity to get together from around the country and connect before the holidays, look back on the year and conjure up ideas for new events and road trips. Jams like this make you leave with a smile on your face and add the kind of stoke that gets you excited for the new year ahead. Rico from Evals BMX, who is undoubtably one of the most dedicated guys to grace the South African BMX scene.  The open format jam and best trick/long jump challenges really got everyone on their bikes and sending it without the pressure of a normal contest environment.

It’s pretty safe to say Thrashers Skatepark got one hell of a hiding on the day…

A decent crew from out of town came through including Murray Loubser(Gaansbaai), Eric Garbers(Namibia) and Chiko M(Botswana).
It was cool to see these guys arrive at the park and shred it like it was their local in just a few minutes. Team Joburg/PTA were also in the house. Vincent Leygonie, Matt Duffy, Nathi Steeze, Jason Hood, Francois Bodenstein & Doran Mathewson went b-mode on the park like it was closing down. All these guys did something different, from savage gaps to using the back rails on the park.

Thanks also goes out to Monster Energy, Omnico and Skabanga Crew for backing Evals to make sure the vibe was great. If you’re reading this, hopefully it will inspire you to throw a jam of your own.

BMX DAY 2016

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in News, Video

As we rolled up to Museum Africa it was pretty clear we were going to have a huge crew. Already at 10am there was a posse 50 deep playing game of bike
and entertaining themselves on the various jibs the meet up spot had to offer. It’s always cool coming up to Joburg and meeting so many new faces and all the different styles that come with it.
While we waited for some of the notorious late risers to arrive, Rico from the Evals BMX Shop broke out the flat rail and his gnarly wooden kicker that looked like something out of Hot Rod.
I’ve never seen so many tricks go down on a flat rail in such a short space of time! Standouts in my mind were Darren Oatley’s switch pegs whip, Hann Jansens backwards crook wizardry and Nathi’s backwards manual combos.
Paul Soderlund managed to stick a super long manual line while dodging 100 riders and pedestrians just in time for a quick group shot before we hit the streets with the mob.
From that point on, the whole day pretty much turned into a blur of cranking around town, blocking traffic, incidents with the cops, handing out a large amount of tubes after riding a sketchy glass ridden bank under the highway followed by witnessing Murray Loubser and Jason Hood lay down two bangers on a crazy setup which can only be illustrated in the gallery and video.
Just when everyone thought the day was over, someone suggested a damn long jump contest! While I’d never openly condone such a thing because of them being notoriously sketchy and dangerous.
There were more than a few willing candidates ready to send themselves off the kicker to their doom. I swear if some of these kids moms saw what was going on their bikes would be up for sale the next day.
Luckily no one got seriously injured, Sean Fritz definitely has a damn guardian angel or something. After taking a massive slam (Watch video) he took home a tough as nails package from Fox Head South Africa earning himself a new helmet, which was quite fitting.
Huge shout out to everyone that made it out this year, the Botswana crew and the brands that got involved. Monster Energy, Vans ZA, Evals BMX, Hunter BMX, 1933 Classic Tattoos and Fox Head South Africa.
Special mention goes out to Hann Jansen for all the help leading the pack to spots. Kevin Schnider and Grant Maclachlan for handling the visuals. We hope jams like this inspire you to continue pushing and remind you that we’re all part of one big family! #BMXDAY has become a global success! #Bepartofit”
Thanks again for making the day/mission so rad.

BMX DAY 2015

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in News, Video

“On a frosty Saturday morning the Johannesburg Library Gardens were awoken to the sound of bikes cruising in as riders from different scenes and towns from all over SA came together in support the first global BMX day.

The point of BMX day is not about drawing crowds, prize money or a contest format, It’s about drawing the scene closer together no matter how big or small through sharing the common bond of riding bikes.

So without further delay we packed the van, camera gear and set off on a wild ride through the city!

After warming up and clocking some clips at the first spot as well as getting everyone in one place for a group photo to commemorate this gathering it was time to hit the streets, Seeing a huge mob of riders bombing down Commissioner Street is definitely a sight to make anyone who has ever ridden a bike stoked.

With Wayne Reiche and Kevin Schnider capturing the vibe and the visuals you know this is going to be on point. Check out the edit and photo gallery below and get a behind the scenes look at how a bunch of BMX riders took over the streets of Johannesburg !

Huge thanks to the brands who supported with product and played an integral part making it happen :

Monster Energy SA, Skullcandy, BMX Direct, DC Shoes Africa, Evals BMX, Skabanga Crew, Stay Mooked, Vans, Loot Brand, Mongoose Bikes and 1933 Classic Tattoos. ”
