Pinky Squeak Contest

With the success of the Hitchhiker Juggler contest in July. BMX Freestyler has decided to have another contest with Pinky Squeaks. After collecting information from other riders. This was the most requested trick in the community of flatlanders. Prize money is driven by us as a community of flatlanders. Last time BMX Freestyler gave David Hoffmann $277.77 and custom bars from London BMX. This was created because of you, the rider that wants to be able to give back and see someone really push there selves. Okay here are the rules:

1. All video submission must be filmed during the Month of September 2011. To insure this you must say on film “This was filmed for the BMX Freestyler Pinky Squeak Contest”. This can be said either at the beginning or the end of the video by the rider.

2. All videos submissions must be filmed either by tri pod or by another person. Go-Pro or self-camera will not be allowed.

3. There will be 3 different categories for this competition . The original Pinky Squeak with brakes using only tire and frame. Pinky Squeaks using pegs with brakes and Pinky Squeaks using pegs with out the use of brakes. They will be counted from normal riding position back to normal riding position. If rear tire touches the ground your video must be filmed again. You can only do Pinky Squeaks once you start. No other tricks will be allowed. No hopping or backwards hang '5s or backward steams ect.

 4. There will be 3 winners during this contest. The rider with the highest amount doing original Pinky Squeak's with brakes, using peg with brakes and using pegs with out brakes. The prize money will be divided in 3rds and given to each winner.

5. If you have a front brake you will be placed in the braked category. If you want to be considered for brake free pinky’s you must not have a front brake.

6. Rider must land pinky squeaks. You must be able to pedal away. At no time can rider touch the ground with either foot. If rider touches the ground the video submission is not qualified and should be filmed again.
