Leandro Moreira recently held a dirt jumping contest known as Super BMX Dirt at his local Caracas trails outside São Paulo, Brazil. The Caracas jumps are massive and they attracted a bunch of amazing South American riders, as well as US pros Anthony Napolitan and Mike “Hucker” Clark.
For the past three years, BMX riders from across the country and beyond have been making the trek to central Florida in early Spring for the Florideah Swampfest. It has come to be one of the definitive can’t be missed events of the year, and here’s a little insight from the GT team as to why…
The GT squad love Swampfest so much they brought even more riders down for the wild weekend this year, including Albert Mercado, Brian Kachinsky, Dan Conway, Leandro Moriera, as well as Tristen Cooper, Mad Mike Guth, and 16-year-old shredder Gustavo Balaloka from Brazil. The dudes put a hurting on the street/ramp course and hit plenty of laps on the trails too.
