Throughout the year there are professional competitions that are well worth watching. Our favourite is the DC hit and run which not only tests the riders’ freestyle ability but they have to race down the course in the fastest time possible.
The elements park is a smaller park and has been designed with newcomers to freestyle in mind. It has a fun boardercross with cameras to film you racing. You simply scan your pass to start the cameras and you can view the footage on the internet afterwards.
