Vans Rebel Jam goes Spain
Cologne, Germany, 7 September 2012. After stops in Germany, Portugal and the Netherlands, the Rebeljam has landed in Spain for 2012. Park, street, dirt and flatland riders from all over the world are expected to make the trek to Eurocamp in Tossa de Mar, on the weekend of 5-7 October.
By riders, for riders is the motto of the Vans Rebeljam. Making the riding scene healthier afterwards is a good bonus. This year Axel Jurgens’ ramp facility at Eurocamp will receive an overhaul for the event and the added constructions will stay after the event. With plenty of camping and hotel facilities in walking distance from the ramps and the beach just 300 meters away, the venue is next perfect.
“The event is open for pro riders only, but there is no special invite needed,” says organiser Andy Zeiss. “Moving the event to Spain for 2012 at Axel’s amazing park we’re expecting a good turn-out. It’s just an hour north of Barcelona and has a private beach. We’re ready for some good times.”
For the first time in Rebeljam history four BMX disciplines will be held: Dirt, Park, Street and also Flatland is back on the program after its success in Eindhoven in 2011. Signing up is possible now on the www.rebeljam.com website. You can also find all accommodation info on the site under the USEFUL button. Use the promotional code (“REBEL”) which is valid till 20 September 2012 to get a discount on the booking.
We’re looking forward to welcome you at Eurocamp on the weekend of 5-7 October 2012.

Welcome to a new feature here at Defgrip.
A while back, Ryan Sher had suggested to Harrison that it would be rad to send along a disposable camera on a road trip, let anyone use it and see what comes back for a photogallery. We loved the idea, and did just that. In addition to giving you a loose glimpse into the trip, this turned out exactly how I envisioned. Grainy, spontaneous and fun.
Our first victim is Empire BMX, who went to Spain to film for their upcoming video. The trip consisted of Hanson Little, Danny Hickerson, Sean Sexton, Chase Hawk and Sergio Layos.
