Wednesday nights at the Source Park have always been girl’s night, but never quite like this… This time around over 20 women from all around the UK–as well a few visiting pros from the USA–took over the park for the Girls Only Jam. With no classes or age groups, everyone competed together–from 12 year old Sasha Pardoe to veteran pro Nina Buitrago. The judging premise was unique, as well, as the girl’s scores weren’t affected by what they didn’t pull, but only judged on what they did land. This approach encouraged the girls to push themselves and go for stuff regardless if they thought they could pull it or not. And it worked… just a few things we saw include 12 year old Sasha attempting fly-out tailwhips, Nina hitting the curved wallride, 16 year-old Hannah Roberts stomping a tailwhip air, Angie Moreno icepick grinding a rail off a kicker, and both Angie and Nina double pegging the big rail. A laid back session with your peers helping push each other to progress… sounds awesome, right? You bet it was. Shout out to all the women who rode, the people who showed up to show support, and The Source for supporting the women of BMX.
The new tall order colour ways look amazing! I’m so happy with how my bike has come out, thanks to tall order and Seventies Distribution, also to my mate Mark for helping me build it.
I ventured east over to Asylum Skatepark for some flow and found a bunch of rad locals and we had a great time, thanks a bunch!
PLEASE NOTE: SOURCE BMX GIRLS JAM IS WEDNESDAY THE 16TH OF MAY 2018, NOT APRIL, I GOT MY DATES MIXED UP! Sorry…
I’m a bmx girl live in Japan.

Lara Lessmann added to the Total BMX team! Congrats Lara!
“I have been watching Lara make great progress over the last year and I had also noticed she was already riding one of our Killabee frames by choice, so I knew she would fit the brand perfectly. She has great riding ability and style and other key team members agreed she is a shredder and it would be cool to have her on the team. I look forward to seeing Lara’s riding progress and to help support her on her journey in BMX.”

Thanks to British Cycling I had the opportunity to travel to and enter Fise Hiroshima in Japan! It was a scary, new, fantastic and exciting experience with some legendary people that made me feel really looked after and supported me throughout. I couldn’t have made it here without them.
It was tough cramming over a week of footage into a video and keeping it interesting, it was also a challenge learning when and what I needed to film. All new to me but I’m happy with the outcome, let me know what you think!
I’m very thankful and I can’t wait for the next adventure!
