Let’s take a look at what the NASS Festival 2017 BMX Courses will look like…
With NASS coming up next month, we get a look at their plans for how things will look for the setup for BMX to ride. Above you can find a drawing of the street course, then below you can find Dirt, Flatland, Park and Vert. Flatland and vert are a little obvious since those two require a flat space and a half pipe, but otherwise the park and street courses are looking rad. Get more details below!
2016’s Dirt Contest was huge but 2017 promises to be even bigger. So NASS have returned to Gorilla and BMX legend Kye Forte to take Dirt to the next level. Expect huge gaps and gravity defying steps and a tough contest as reigning champion Nick Bruce looks to retain his title against some serious competition.
The Radlands is returning to NASS once again with a specially designed super smooth stage to allow the finest flatland operators to perform their art the way it should be done. The Radlands will also play host to the B-Boy Stage.
Designed by the country’s leading park designers, FourOneFour, the pro park is the biggest stage in the European action sports calendar and it’s where the world’s best talent will fight it out for glory, bragging rights and an enormous prize purse. Huge obstacles, monstrous transitions and highly intricate street sections will test each rider’s ability in the air, as well as their skills with smooth lines.
The Jewel in the NASS crown is the awe-inspiring 14ft vert ramp designed to the specifications of vert legend Tony Hawk. One of the biggest ramps in Europe, this will be the stage for the world’s best vert riders on two wheels and four and will make for an incredible, gravity defying contest as Vince Byron and Jesse Thomas both look to retain their status as World Champions.
“With the iBMXFF World Championships returning to NASS for the second year in a row organisers have now revealed the course that will push the boundaries of each rider, testing their mettle as they compete for the title of World Champion from 7 th – 9 th July.
The public park is the place for everyone to come along and get involved and shred, pure and simple. With plenty of ramps, rails, transitions and street spots there’s plenty in the pro park for you to practice on… and who knows practice enough and you may find yourself in the pro-park in 2018.
A new addition to NASS 2017 is the Pump Track. Over the course of the weekend festival goers and riders of all disciplines will get the chance to ride this plywood rollercoaster with the fastest set to win some awesome prizes.
Inspired by the individuality and creativity of alternative youth culture, 15,000 music & action sport fans will make their way to the Bath & West Showground for a weekend of action sports, live music and hardcore revelry.
Hip Hop royalty in the shape of Wu Tang Clan’s Method Man and Redman have been announced to headline Friday night on the Main Stage supported by rising grime star Giggs. They join grime legend Kano, Aussie Drum and Bass outfit Pendulum and DJ duo Sigma on the Main Stage line-up.“
