Event Description


ASRA and Shredemite are proud to announce the return of the Grom Bomb!

Come and experience downhill skateboard racing on a closed road. This event is for both new and experienced riders in a safe and friendly environment.

The categories will include both under 18s and under 21s to bring more people to the hill, but also for the newcomers to get a sample of some tight racing and learn from some of Australia's best. Standard safety gear requirements include helmet and gloves, but leathers are always strongly recommended.

Make sure to be prepared: bring plenty of water, food and make sure to wear suncream. Plan to arrive around 8:30 with skating kicking off at 9:00. If you are early please just hang out and wait for everyone so we can all skate together and safely.

There will be a bbq running most of the day, gold coin donation so bring a couple spare bucks if you cant bring lunch.
If you have not yet registered please do so now as it will make things run much quicker than doing it on the day.

To minimise the risk of collisions between skaters and people walking back up the hill, everyone will have to wait at the bottom until all skaters have completed their run and walk back up as one group. There will be track marshals at the start and finish to let you know when it is safe to take your run and when it is safe to return to the top. Skating of the steep side might be permitted at some point, but not during the morning practice runs.

Craig you are always most welcome any time. If you want to have a go racing by all means we can throw you into the under 21's as a special wild card entry. otherwise feel free to enjoy some riding on your own or with others, either way will be good to have you there

not quite in Grom category but would be charmed to be allowed to attend.  It's a charming run, off-road and safe as you say.  

Will you accept a 'mature' Grom?
