Voodoo Jam New Orleans 2013

The good times keep on rolling after almost 2 weeks home i headed off again to the sweaty, sticky, humid New Orleans for BMX Flatland's biggest contest ever in the USA. The Pro class was stacked with almost 40 riders from 14 different countries and the AM class maxed out at 25. The level at this contest was as high as ever with some of the best riders from all over the world throwing their hardest tricks at each other in efforts to walk away crowned the 2013 Voodoo Jam Champion. In the end it was Tsutomu Kitayama from Japan edging out his countryman Hiro Morizaki with a lethal level of BMX Flat as the entire building screamed, yelled, and cheered the final riders on. I suffered a heel injury a few days prior to the contest and struggled through my qualifying run leaving me short of the final event but the week I spent hanging out, riding, and partying with some amazing people was epic. Big shout out to Alex, Elodie, Nathan, and Gabin Jumelin for welcoming 6 smelly BMX dudes into their home for a week and the homies (Jermey, Matthias, Bert, Moya, and Paul) who filled my days with laughter and good times. Also to all of the riders supporting and most of all thank you Scott O'brien for making all of this possible. Voodoo Jam 2013 was a smashing success for BMX Flatland, see you guys again next year!
