I just returned from a trip to the Netherlands where the world-renowned Vans Rebel Jam went down. It was held in the city of Eindhoven, which is about an hour and change from Amsterdam. This was my first time to this part of the world and from what I could tell, it is a beautiful country.

Rebel Jam is one of those contests that you always hear good things about, so I was more than happy to accept the invitation to come over and cover it for Defgrip. This was my first ever Rebel Jam, and it did not disappoint. From accommodations to the actual event, it all went down as smooth as my eyes could tell. Barring any jet lag or “zombie mode” scenarios, it was a good time. Also, it’s always good when you can make riding history at an event, and Rebel Jam did that.

Thanks to Andy Zeiss and all the Vans staff for a great experience.

Dominik Wrobel is cooking up an edit for us, so check back soon for that.

Be sure to check out Ride BMX, DIG, Ride UK and Rebel Jam sites for action shots, results and more.
