Rock A Rail was so good! Big up for Iron Artist Gerben Verweij and friends Melle, Cees, Jordi, Bob and the rest for building/constructing. Thanks for all the support from Protest, Monster, Bataleon, GoPro, Supermarkt, Snowworld and the city of The Hague. Livestream couldn't be possible without Surf Benelux guys Michael Schmitz & Allard Soeters. Commentators Alexis De Tarade, Luc Büthker & Filmers Roderik Patijn and Jasper Doppenberg. Not forgetting the judges Ian Trashmore and Rens van Drimmelen. And the dynamic duo James Thorne & Chris Cab causing havoc and destruction, accompanied by Ramoen Verbeet aka DJ Commander Redbeard.
And of course all the riders who joined the comp, thanks for killing this setup! Thanks Lennart en Onno, Polar, Gigant, Barney Pronk (Neef) and the Grote Markt, Albert Heijn (Roy van Bentem), studio Güthschmidt, Artist in Resident and IBIS Hotel.
Props to Tim Schiphorst for filming and setting up a banging afterparty.

Damn right, Cherylle!
Everyone who can't attend the Protest Rock A Rail powered by Monster Energy... we've got good news for you. Thanks to Michael Schmitz / Surfbenelux.com we can provide you with a livestream! Be sure to check out this website on the 12th of October.
Of course, nothing beats the real deal, so we hope to see you at the Grote Markt!
With a lot of help from our friends at Protest, Monster Energy, Supermarkt, SnowWorld, GoPro, Bataleon, Polar Europe, GV Constructions, Gigant Podia, The Hague, Haags Goud and Lennart en Onno we've managed to pull it off and can proudly announce this event for the second time in history: the Protest Rock a Rail presented by Monster Energy. Thanks for all the support you guys.
Of course everyone was already checking out our Facebook event page for the most recent updates, keep doing that, but we'll also post some stuff on this site. We won't have a live blog like we had last year though, so there's no excuse for you to stay at home at the 12th of October.
The event starts at 18:00 with a thrilling final at 22:00. The day will end with an after & premiere party at the Supermarkt, with a movie premiere of Catscratch - a Postland production - followed by Swedish punkband Holograms and Ella Bandita & Buster Shindig.
