Reunions and Old skool gatherings seem to get more and more popular in Europe.

During the August 25/26th. 2000 weekend there has been a reunion of Old skool BMX racers in BEAUNE - France, organized by CLAUDE VUILLEMONT, former National Franch Champion and World Champion.

It concerned a weekend long program with all kind of activities like ofcourse a reception, diner, and a bmx competition on old skool bikes and in old skool uniforms. At the same time the 20th. anniversary of BMX

in France was celebrated. Besides former and present BMX racers present, also officials were invited, like the AFB's first president Raymond Imbert and introducer of BMX in France Alain Koligowski as well as

promotor of the first hour Rene Nicolas. Claude reported, over 125 Old skool riders from France showed up, most of them were married and all together these families did bring along 25 children (potential BMX

racers - champions). Ain't that just great! I understand everybody had a great time. Well done Claude! Claude is married and has a lovely daughter. His profession is teacher in gymnastics.
