There haven’t been too many BMX contests that have gone down this summer thanks to COVID, but the Pannonian Challenge over in Croatia wasn’t about to let that stop them from throwing their 21st annual contest. Hit play to check out a bunch of highlights from the contest with plenty of big names in attendance to throw down!
“Despite these strange times the 21st edition of the Pannonian Challenge recently took place in the City of Osijek, Croatia. Luka Kovič managed to get some riding clips from some of the best riders in the world and Catfish. Hopefully next year we will see more BMX Freestyle Park events like this again! Stay safe and keep on riding!
After there was little or nothing going on in the “Jams & Contests” category in the past few months due to corona, this division of freedombmxTV is now slowly but surely starting up again with caution. For example, the other day we were at the LAME 2020 at the M-Trails in Magdeburg (video is coming soon) and soon we will go up to the far north, more precisely to Flensburg, for the replacement event for the Butcher Jam.
But also in the rest of Europe something is happening here and there. Not so long ago, for example, in Osijek (Croatia), a stripped-down version of the renowned Pannonian Challenge was held in camera. Despite Corona, the BMX park contest there surprised with an astonishingly international starter field, which included Daniel Dhers and delegations from England (Jack Clark, Kieran Reilly) and France (Anthony Jeanjean, Istvan Caillet).
In the video above there are some clips from the men that Luka Kovič from Evolution BMX kindly captured for us on site. Thanks a lot for this!
