Munich, Germany, June 5th 2009 – Corey Bohan, James Foster, Ryan Guettler, Dave Dillewaard, Luke Parslow, TJ Ellis or Cameron White - The biggest names in the business confirmed their attendance at the BIG IN BAVARIA dirt jump comp in Munichon July 24th and 25th. This one of a kind dirt event showcases X-Games, Red Bull Elevation and Dew Tour winners and therefore can claim to be one of the best European dirt jump contests in the season 2009.
The Colombian rider Alejandro Caro already promised to “pull it as hard as he can”. Dave Dillewaard from Australia said almost the same, but also pointed out that he especially can’t wait to enjoy the luscious Bavarian beer in the evening. Rob Darden, American BMX pro who placed 3rd at the X Games 2008, can’t wait to have his big time in Bavaria, too: “I am looking forward to some good times with some great friends while getting loose on our bikes and taking in new parts of the world.“

But the BIG IN BAVARIA is not only about the most important names in BMX. Also the dirt jumps are about to beat most of the things ever seen before. The head of course construction – BMX pro Markus Hampl – uses over 2.000 tons of dirt for 180 meters (about 200 yards) of pure riding pleasure. The course building starts in the beginning of June and the shapers will sweat for almost a month. The eight meters (about 25 feet) high wooden starting tower provides the proper speed you need for the huge doubles. Some sections of the BIG IN BAVARIA track feature two parallel dirt lines, which enable the riders to take challenging transfers. Due to an overall prize money fund of 20.000 Euros, hard battles between the riders as well as lots of airtime, the craziest tricks and the sickest combos are guaranteed.
