As of 2022, BMX JETT has broken new ground in terms of development and guidance of ambitious talented riders. Where the approach was (and is) to work with talented riders from to train together at national and international level in order to grow and strengthen each other, we put for 2022 a logical next step, in our opinion. First of all, two very talented riders have been added to the team with effect from 2022. These are Brian van Eeuwijk and Teun Kivit. These two riders are no strangers to most insiders of the BMX world. They have achieved many good results at both national and international level in recent years. We are therefore very happy that Teun and Brian have confidence in BMX JETT and in the path we have taken.
To put even more emphasis on the quality, development and guidance of our riders, we started a collaboration agreement with Jelle van Gorkom and Gerfred Greveling. Jelle van Gorkom has practiced this sport at the highest level for over 20 years, culminating in 2016 a silver medal at the Olympic Games in Rio. Jelle will be head coach of the team starting from January 2022. He will take the first steps as a coach and trainer of a BMX team. Jelle will meet daily with the riders, and will train and coach them during competitions and is responsible for the annual programme.

Hell of a week.
