John Hughes Slopestyle – BMX jumping competition


The inaugural John Hughes Slopestyle hits the historic Edward Millen Reserve in East Victoria Park on Sunday 26th of April. The first event of its kind in Western Australia, the John Hughes Slopestyle is designed to bring the spectacle of mountain biking and BMX jumping ‘to the people’ in an urban environment. The John Hughes Slopestyle will feature several cycling events, with an Urban Downhill race, mountain bike Slopestyle and a BMX jump jam, all held on a crazy purpose built downhill jumping course. The course will challenge riders with a variety of imposing obstacles including a car jump, drop off a shipping container, jumping through a tree and several tall banked wall rides.
20 invited bmx riders from around Western Australia and beyond will partake in the BMX jumping competition with $1700 up for grabs, $1000 for first place. The BMX competition will no doubt be crazy, with the BMX competition set to take place between 2:30pm and 4:30pm. The Urban mountain bike events are taking place before and after the BMX jumping competition with the whole day kicking off at 12 noon. There will be a range of other attractions on site to entertain spectators and create a family-friendly festival atmosphere. The popular Thank God it’s Friday Hawkers Markets will be serving up a wide selection of good food at street prices, the Red Bull DJs will keep the beat, Crossfit 6100 will allow spectators to witness the fitness revolution with their crossfit demonstrations, Rock and Roll mountain biking will be providing free cycling skills clinics for children as well as the Freestyle Now’s BMX stunt show will be rolling out the rad for all to see.
Spectators are encouraged to cycle to the event, with valet bicycle parking offered by Crack Cycling for a gold-coin donation.
