After almost one year away from the scene, the Brazilian rider Paulo Saçaki is back on the Game.
He was filming for a welcome video for the team when he ended up falling hard and injuring his foot.
Having a few events like the BSS Tour, Arena Banks and all stops of Fise Wolrd, he and his doctor tried everything so that they didn’t have to operate and stop him from riding in the up coming comps. “There were eight months between rest, robofoot, plaster, physiotherapy, gym. Then in October we saw that we had no options other than to operate. The bone was in the right place which helped to calcify by itself, but it was very bruised and that would not let it heal”.
With the words of Paulo;
“After two months I started the physiotherapies, there were many sessions, a lot of pain and a lot of willpower. At three months I returned to the gym, I had lost seven kilos, my body had practically no strength. After four months I started to ride my bike. I gradually released myself, respecting the limits of my body, foot and reflex, doing home sessions in my resi ramps are good to bring tricks back.
Today, 100% recovered, Saçaki is very excited for the year 2017.
“We have a great year for BMX here in Brazil, between 7 stops of the BSS Tour and more Arena Banks, events that are increasingly raising the level and professionalizing the sport, I hope to have my best year for sure”.
Paulo Saçaki returns to the competitions next week in the first stop of the BSS Tour in Varginha-MG and will also have a new edit for us soon.

Incase you missed this wild clip of Chris sending a double flip at this years ACT JAM during the dirt stop of the weekend…
Tim Storey and the CLVLND crew have been hard at working filming for a new DVD based out of Brisbane, Australia. Tim will have a full section and Alex will have a stack of clips so be on the look out for this to drop in the coming months.
So stoked to see Chris take first place along with Jayden scoring 10th so they both grab a spot and join Alex Hiam in the finals tomorrow. Both the guys have some great clips in this video…
I spent most of the ACT Jam weekend shooting photos but put the camera down for another camera every now and then to snag a few clips of the guys. Check the video below featuring Alex Hiam, Jayden Fuller, Josh Dove, Chris James, Polly, Chris Courtenay and Clint Millar.
Jourdan and his friend Carlos get in a good session at the Fergusson park.
Nathan Sykes has some great footage in this really good video piece put together by Matt Cordova. Shot using Matt’s Super 8 film camera.
Day 3 was just as fun as the previous 2 days at Act Jam. We hit up the Fadden park which ended up being quite a long and fun session before we headed over to the Belco jam which was as good as you would expect.
We got in a session at Belco before we headed to the trails jam today. Belco was productive and fun but the trails jam was next level. The sets were pretty wild and a tonne of riders were killing it. See you at Belco today.
Good first full day in Canberra with a session at Gungahlin then off to Weston Creek for a wild time as you would expect.
