Our very own Sandstone Ridge in Cheshire is to host the 2018 UK Mountain-board Championship.
On 25th, 26th and 27th of August, mountain-boarders from all over the country will be converging at Harthill Adventure Park on the Sandstone Ridge, for the ATBA-UK Mountainboard Championship.
On Saturday, the competition kicks off with fast paced boardercross. In each race, four riders speed down a specially designed track. Skill and speed are equaled with chance and tactics. This makes an exciting discipline to spectate!
On Sunday we will see Downhill, a little calmer to watch with a chance to get technical about each section of the track. This is all about speed, racing against the clock.
Monday's competition has the riders getting airborne to show off their skills and perform huge Freestyle tricks like backflips, frontflips and spins. A panel of experienced judges decide who is best.
The results from all three disciplines will give a UK overall result. Will you be cheering for World champion Matt Brind to achieve his 10th UK title? or maybe for the local Hales Team for their 8th Team win?
The chairman of the ATBA-UK said "This is an ideal opportunity for people to see mountainboarding at it's highest level with competitors visiting from across the UK and beyond. We're really excited to be at Harthill Adventure Park with their purpose built boardercross track and huge jumps. The Hales Team are strong contenders for the Team Challenge".
Refreshments will be available throughout the event.
The competition starts at midday on each day and is free for spectators.
