Men’s BMX Park Qualifier
Over the past few months, we’ve seen a ton of annual events get cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has made a huge mess all around the world. Most events have been cancelled or altered, but some have decided to take the opportunity to do something different. FISE typically holds events all around the world every year, but decided to take it all online this year with the same prize money up for grabs as the real in person events. Over the past few weeks riders have been submitting their best one minute long videos for the qualifier, and the results are in! Check out all of the top videos from the Pro’s in Mens, the heavy hitting Women’s class and then the Amateur qualifiers all down below. There’s highlight videos for each group if you don’t have time to watch all these videos as well. You can view full results and more on the E-Fise Website! It’s pretty wild to see how many big name guys didn’t even qualify since they only took the top 8 riders for each class. With fan voting and actual judges voting to pick the winners, it’s definitely an interesting concept. Check out all the videos below!
There have been countless BMX jams and events cancelled this year due to COVID-19, but the Nowear crew are keeping their annual Cornhuckit Jam going! This year the jam is scheduled for September 19th and it sounds like they plan to do an awesome event this year, with a few added precautions to ensure everyone stays safe. Check out a few words from Karl Hinkley below…
“We will be respecting and staying within guidelines put in place by our governor in the state of Nebraska. There will be sanitizing stations, outdoor wash station, signs, distancing and 6 acres to help keep spread out.
Proceeds from our jam will go towards phase 2 of our free indoor BMX Park. We recently finished our park portion and now are working towards the indoor pump track.”
The other day we got a look at the new Travis Hughes Signature Cloud Frame from Kink, now we’re getting a look at the new colorways that they have released on the Nathan Williams signature frame, Backwoods frame and Titan II frame!

Here’s a bit of news we are actually kind of surprised to hear. Source BMX has decided to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Battle of Hastings. As many of you know, Source BMX had made a ton of changes to make it possible to do the event by limiting the number of riders in the contest, eliminating the crowd in the stands, only having riders from the U.K / Europe area and more to help reduce risk of COVID 19 spread. However, things aren’t going as smooth as everyone hoped and more lockdowns are happening, so they’ve decided to postpone until next year. Here’s the official word from Darryl Nau…
“2020 has been a tough year and seen most BMX contests cancelled. In July we announced that Battle Of Hastings would go ahead as an elite European rider only event behind closed doors and a focus on live streams shows. When making this decision we always had In mind that travel Covid-19 restrictions may tighten at any time and we may have to adapt but predicted and hoped that this would not be the case. Sadly it is not as many European countries and UK cities are currently locking down which would mean many riders, sponsors, key staff and more are unable to attend and make the event all that we want it to be.
We take the health and safety of our riders, staff, sponsors and the general public with the utmost importance so this has lead to us cancelling Battle Of Hastings 2020.
Thank you to all our sponsors and supporters for standing by us this year and we look forward to next year when Battle Of Hastings will fall on the weekend on September 9th-12th 2021 and return to celebrate BMX at the fullest.” – Source BMX
