Nike Summer Jam 2012: Taiwan  BMX

Sometimes, the best to describe the ride style of BMX is liken it to ballroom dancing in the air, where you whirl and twist your two-wheeled partner off a ramp. And while the routine sounds straight forward enough, the true task is far from it as hundreds of spectators found out over the weekend at Nike Summer Jam 2012 in Taiwan. Like the skateboarding event mentioned previously, the venue took place at the grand plaza of National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall in Taipei City. Opened to both regional professionals and amateurs, all for the few coveted spots to represent Taiwan at next month’s Nike Festival of Sports in Beijing. In addition, it will be the first time Nike Action Sports introducing a new category to the event. Whereas Nike SB employed Stefan Janoski and Johnny Tang to give skaters pointers, Nike BMX asked Garrett Reynolds, Alex Kennedy, and the new X-Game Gold Medalist Chad Kerley to demonstrate the finesse of the sport. More Nike Summer Jam events to come later in August around the Greater China region, all leading up to the grand finale at Festival of Sports near the end of August.
