Started filming for this edit in late 2015 and hoped to already be working on a new one, so I thought I'll put it together although I don't like some of the clips very much. Thanx to Joeri Veul and all the other homies for filming!
The HARO Downtown 18 is a bike that will get a youngster between 8-12 hooked on BMX.
It's hard to believe that there was a time when beginners had to move from a 16" bike to a 20" BMX bike. The 18" Downtown bridges that gap. It just makes sense to have the right sized bike for anyone, especially in this age group where new BMX-ers are born.
The Haro Downtown has the right geometry, just scaled down from the 20" version. Leave that up to the folks at HARO Bikes, they've been in this game since day one.

10 Junior riders made the final and jumped back up on the BMX Park course in Reims at 10am in the morning on Sunday. No time to sleep in, the big final was coming up. The order after qualifying didn't change much. Only Gilles Theys from Belgium sneaked Michael Michiel's podium spot and got third. Arthur Braga rode to a solid 2nd spot and Jari Roggeveen pulled out all stops to win the Junior class. Flips and 360-s over the box, flairs both ways, the boy from Katwijk aan Zee does it all.
