The 2012 edition of VANS rebeljam was held at the extremely cool and drop-dead gorgeous Eurocamp at Tossa de Mar, Catalunya, Spain. The world’s best BMX riders competed in four disciplines – park, an independent street setup, flatland area and a dirtjump contest. 3xScreen produced and live streamed Rebeljam for MPORA, the rebeljam media partner.
