Yesterday was the qualifying round for the 2nd annual Source BMX “Battle of Hastings” contest, along with the best trick contest! Needless to say, when you pack some of the best riders in the world into this bowl, things are going to get insane. Below you can view a few videos giving you a look at the madness that has already gone down at the contest. The finals are coming up today, and you know the riders are just gonna send it!
“The Battle of Hastings qualifying event went down yesterday and it was absolutely mental. 44 of BMX’s top riders competing in the world’s largest underground skatepark (Source BMX) in a unique contest format that consists of 11 teams of 4 riders each, plus a video segment where each team picks two riders to film for one hour in a separate plaza. The plaza videos premieres last night and let me tell you, you are not ready. For now enjoy this condensed version of the “Best Tricks” that everyone took at the end of their runs, plus a few other select highlights from the day. Look for an extended cut of Qualifying / Best Trick dropping soon.” – Ride BMX
