After a long deliberation and considering the many, many factors of different locations, slope angle and length, the final course has been set and is being built as we speak (watch this space for build updates and images).
It is built for 4 man heats starting from a shipping container height start ramp into the many different forms the ramps, berms and jumps can be adjusted to suit the specific location. The one thing they all have in common though, is their sheer size. This course isn't for anyone not comfortable getting loads of airtime.
Who can race? anyone who is capable and willing.
Racing spots are limited for each location, so if you think you have what it takes to race against all sorts of skating backgrounds, then come along.
Entry is free.
4 man heats
Competing in all 4 races is not required, but there will be an overall series champion. Those that can commit to the 4 races will be looked upon more favourably during rider selection.
There will also be winners at each location.
Type of boards allowed, will be anything you want to ride. Fortune will favour good transition pumping in this first series but riding 99a wheels won't be the fastest idea.
Whats the course look like? After most people failing to grasp the scale of this course, we will be posting build photos as the ramps are built... with someone on / next to it so the gnarliness can truly sink in. Each location, the course layout will be different.
This won't be some sketchy plywood 3ft flat bank setup you've seen in past boarderX attempts. It is a seriously large undertaking that ASRA, Tom Thumb and various partners are pulling together to take the next evolutionary step in skateboarding.
