Tokyo/Waalre, September 2006.
Dear brother Gerrit,
How are you, Mieke and your sons doing? I wish you are all fine. Myself and Chako are doing o.k. I am still very busy every day working for my business projects. Gerrit, I was very excited to read in a Japanese newspaper today that the IOC decided to adopt BMX as an Olympic sport during the 2008 Games in Beijing in China. Did you hear or read about this too?
I am very proud of you and your good job to promote BMX as an international sport in the early days of BMX and I am also very proud of the original founders of I.BMX.F. The fact that BMX will be in the Olympics means that the final goal has been reached for all of us. I will really appreciate your good job Gerrit! Congratulations.
Again, I am enjoying many good memories with you to promote BMX sport up till now.
All the best.
Honourable founder member of the I.BMX.F.
