Re: 25th years of BMX.
Many thanks for your invitation to take part in the 25th Anniversary at Dessel. Also many thanks for promoting and developing the good traditions of BMX. At last we also reach step by step one of our goals - organise a Rounds of European Elite and Junior Championship. Now we look for organising the final Rounds of EEC in 2005. But that is not so simply. When businees takes over the real sport then all things stands to difficult uprise. Sometimes we start to forget about democracy within an oganisation. All things that are happening now in UEC are not understable. So we all look forward to the Convention in Vallet which looks to be very "hot". I hope that during this meeting democracy will come back. After these reflections, it is really nice that we have people who look for good tradition establishing and I hope that we can find good people to continue pushing and promoting these traditions further more. I will do all what I can in participating in a positive way during this meeting, but now I am not sure therefore this is school time for me.
Best wishes to Your Family.
