Eight tricks performed in designated categories during a single run will determine who is truly the best all-around FMX athlete.
Each athlete will get only one run to execute eight tricks from different freestyle trick categories. Judges will score tricks in real-time based on the execution of the trick, which will be multiplied by the panel’s pre-agreed degree of difficulty for that trick.
Athletes will be able to hit a diverse course designed to enable tricks across all eight categories, including a 120-foot gap for longer jumps. The athlete who receives the highest cumulative score will be the winner of the event and crowned FMX Champion.TICKETS
