Bensink speed & style

posted by: anneke @ 07/05/2010

It's nice to have a little brake from traveling, I am able to get some decent training in and do some fun stuff! This weekend I raced the Bensink speed & style contest. Bensink is a Dutch company that builds BMX and 4-cross start gates and in their backyard the have a great dual slalom track and dirt jumps. I had to race against the guys but this event was all about fun. I qualified in 20th place from the 32 men, so that was not to bad :) In my first run I was up against one of my training buddys from the National BMX team and I got smoked in the first round. It was cool to see that in the final we had Joost Wichman on his 4-cross bike up against Raymon v/d Biezen on his BMX bike! Raymon won, but it was a very close call! Big thanks to Bensink for putting up an event like this in Holland! Great weekend full of riding :) Check out: for some pictures!
