This summer, the world will bare witness to an exciting competition series that will redefine what’s possible on a skateboard and a BMX bike. Kicking off on June 9 at Woodward West, the 2011 MegaRamp Championship Series is a full-sized MegaRamp contest tour. The world’s top MegaRamp riders will converge on Woodward West to inaugurate the tour with the MegaRamp Open.
Athletes confirmed on the MegaRamp Open roster include: current reigning 2007-2010 MegaRamp skateboard world champion Bob Burnquist (BRA), two-time X-Games winner Jake Brown (AUS), Andy MacDonald (USA), Adam Taylor (USA), and Lincoln Ueda. From BMX, look for Andy Buckworth (AUS), Vince Byron (AUS), Zack Warden (USA), Morgan Wade (USA), and Austin Coleman (USA), to name a few. Judges include skateboarding legends Danny Way, Christian Hosoi, and for BMX, Kevin Robinson.
The competition is open to both pros and top ams and will be a fully spectator event. Judged during a jam format, athletes will drop in nine stories to jump a 70 ft. gap, landing at 45mph and subsequently hitting a 27 ft. high quarterpipe that sends them 50 ft. in the air. It’s skate/BMX action as you’ve never seen it.
