  • Abonnementsgeld voor de BWC 2020

    Hallo allemaal,

    We zitten met ons alle in een bijzondere tijd die maar weinig mens eerder hebben meegemaakt.

    Ook de BMX West competitie ligt stil, en we weten niet wat de toekomst ons gaat brengen.

    Daarom heeft het afdeling bestuur besloten, om het  abonnementsgeld voor de BWC van dit jaar terug te gaan betalen.

    Dit zal ik in de maand mei gaan doen.

    U zal begrijpen dat dit een arbeidsintensieve klus is, en dat dit niet in een avond geregeld is om 220 rijders terug te gaan betalen.

    Ik zal dit gaan doen op volgorde van de eerst binnen gekomen betalingen.

    Dit gaat alleen over de gelden, en laten we hopen dat we na 1 september nog wedstrijden kunnen gaan rijden.

    Gr Hans Hogenboom

    Inschrijving wedstrijden

    Op dit moment krijgen we verschillende vragen over de mogelijkheid tot het inschrijven van de wedstrijden.
    We zijn op dit moment bezig om de wedstrijden in het systeem te krijgen.
    Zodra deze open zijn voor de renners, zullen we de afdelingen informeren.

    Stuurbordnummer aanvragen

    Op dit moment is de inschrijving voor het NKC geopend.
    Voor de renners die mee willen doen aan deze wedstrijd en voor andere wedstrijden is het van belang dat de renner een stuurbordnummer aanvraagt.

    Vraag je stuurbordnummer tijdig aan in mijnKNWU. De richtlijnen voor je stuurbord kun je vinden op onze website.

    Let op! Vraag je stuurbord pas aan als je je wedstrijdlicentie binnen hebt, anders krijg je een verkeerd stuurbordnummer toegewezen.

BikeJames Podcast

The Podcast for the MTB Strength Training System, the world's original and best strength and conditioning system designed exclusively for mountain bikers.
  • Trackstands, Are Flats Bad For Your Knees and My Favorite Riding Shoes

    In this podcast I cover...


    Trackstands: The most under-rated skill in mountain biking.

    • At its core this is the skill of balancing without any momentum.
    • The slower you are going the more you need your slow speed balance.
    • Skills like switchbacks, technical climbs and rock gardens all require this skill.
    • Allows you to use skill instead of momentum and luck.
    • Easy to improve/ One of the best uses of your “off trail” training time.
    • Make sure you work both feet forward.

    Rider Q&A

    Are flat pedals bad for your knees/ role of float in clipless pedals.

    • Your leg and foot don’t create energy in a straight line, they use a spiral motion where the foot “screws” into and off what it is on.
    • This movement is in relation to the ground/ what you foot is on.
    • When you strap the foot to the pedal and restrict its movement in relation to the pedal then your knees will blow up from this lack of rotation.
    • Putting float in clipless pedals allows a little rotation before you unclip, allowing the foot to rotate a little and taking stress of the knee.
    • On a flat pedal your feet aren't restricted in relation to the pedal and so it can create that screwing motion into the pedal.
    • This is the more natural way for your foot to function and captures the rotational energy the foot and leg produces.
    • This is why people with knee problems often see improvement when switching to flats despite the lack of “float”.
    • Float is a solution to strapping your foot to the pedal, which is a product of the unstable forces going into the pedal. 
    • Your foot doesn’t need or want “float” as you find it in no other sport or situation. 
    • If you fix the problem of the unstable energy through a pedal like the Catalyst Pedal then you don’t need to strap your foot on the pedal in the first place.

    Sense Of Motion Shoes

    • Small operation making shoes in Montrose CO.
    • Foot healthy shoes.
    • Light and breathable.
    • Dry quickly.
    • Just enough sticky rubber to do the job, especially on Catalyst Pedals.

    Until next time...

  • The 3 Axioms of MTB Training, Handlebar Rise & Isometric Training for Low Back Pain

    In this episode I cover...


    Training - The 3 Axioms of MTB Training:



    • Behind every technique on your bike is a movement skill your body requires - you can’t control your bike if you can’t control your body.
    • Athleticism is contextual - movement demands are specific to the environment.
    • Mindful movement practice helps to supplement the rest of your training.



    Skills -  Effects of bar rise on your body and ride:Understanding the benefits and drawbacks of more rise and what you shouldn’t be using them to make up for.

    Rider Q&A - Isometric Training for Low Back Pain/ Slipped Discs:Should you avoid certain exercises and should you feel you low back getting “sore” from training?
