When someone says the words ‘The Pool’ normally you would think of water, diving, swimming and other such water activities. Well ever since i went to The Nike Pool in Dagenham those words have never been the same. Nike has done a lot of good things for BMX in the last couple of years, one of which was the event held in Dagenham leisure center. They turned a swimming pool that had recently become out of use and derelict into one of the most amazing skateparks i have had the pleasure to ride. The project was called 30 days in Dagenham as the park was only open for 30 days before the whole building (along with the skatepark) had to be demolished. In those 30 days i got to ride the park with some of the guys from the Zeal BMX team. This is an edit from one of those days, something i will never forget. Enjoy.
