The track, which was designed by Nate Wessel, will offer unique features not usually found in local skateparks.

After the main skating and BMX event, enthusiasts are welcome on the Simple Session track. In addition, on September 25, a “GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS” skating workshop will be held at KÄT Studio.

It is a great pleasure to welcome so many top competitors. A women’s street BMX competition will also be organised as a new category”, said Risto Kalmre, one of the event organisers.
