So, there are many keen riders that want to work towards organizing a pure street event. I suppose it wouldn’t be hard to organize a flatland battle in there somewhere too, but lets talk about street :P.
How long would people want such an event to be?
Personally I’d make it last all year if possible, but for some people even unicon is too long to attend the whole event, work purposes etc. I think a single weekend, maybe a long weekend (3 days) is good for a competition that is purely street, sort of EUC style I guess. For those that want longer they can always stay extra days.
What rules would you want in the competitions? And what kind of competitions?
Would we want zones or runs? There could be both? I don’t like zones, I much prefer runs depending on the obstacles, but most competitions don’t have suitable parks for this, but if enough people wanted runs we could arrange that.
We could have crankflip height/length competitions etc? Best trick done down stairs etc, best trick into a grind or out of etc.
Or we could try out a completely new set of rules.
Where would we want the event?
I think Australia is a great place, awesome skateparks and weather. Plus we have great riders here in the southern hemisphare that are committed to making such an event a success. (plus its close to me ;)).
Registration costs would be similar to the cost most events charge, would people be willing to put an extra “x” percent of their registration cost to go towards cash prizes for the competition winners?
