More than 80 Pro and Am riders participated in the T-Mobile Local Support Street Challenge on October 17th and showed amazing BMX riding to a large audience at the Tretlager Halle in Emmering near Munich.
The pro class riding was at the highest stage: With real bangers like superman flips, flipwhips, 360 bars to whip as well as some techy tricks the riders raised the riding level and atmosphere at the indoor bike park with every single run. In the end Czech Agang team Ondra Slez and Zdenda Pesck took the win by a narrow margin in front of the Czech-Austrian Red Bull duo Michael Beran and Senad Grosic. The reason for their victory was a top-notch team performance including a flair tailwhip by Ondra Slez whilst his team buddy Zendra Pesck did a perfectly timed wallride under him. With their prize, spot support worth € 4.000, team Agang has now the ability to strengthen the BMX infrastructure in their home country. Sven „Sprosse“ Lehmann and Tino Schnecke from Berlin took the 3rd place.
In the Am class Adam Wilhelm and Christian Anton from team Flair BMX showed the best run of the day. Their prizes are a video portrait at freedombmx as well as lots of equipment from Pro-tec and Cheap Yeah!. Munich meets Regensburg (Peter Bayerle / Michael Rösler) and SkunkFu (Max Altmeyer / Martin Kretschmar) finished 2nd and 3rd.
The tickets to ride at the Street Session of the T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds on December 6th, 2009 in Berlin went to Jean-Baptiste Peytavit from France and the Czech guys Ondra Slez and Michael Beran. They will be joined by best Am rider Christian Anton, who won his second T-Mobile Wildcard after 2008. All of them are going to ride at the spectacle in the Velodrom of Berlin, side by side with invited top riders like last year’s winner Rob Darden and Gary Young.
