We all constantly ask, why are there no South Africans competing at XGames? Well best answer is budget, sponsors and of course the skills to compete against the world’s best. In my opinion we definitely have the talent, the riders just need the assistance to ride international comps and parks. So here is an opportunity for all our top skaters and Bmx guys to get to XGames and perform on the biggest stage in action sports.
Red Bull Phenom is a competition to find the next skate, BMX and mountain bike legends. To enter, all you have to do is submit a 60 second video of yourself showing us your talent. Six finalists per discipline will receive a once-in-a-lifetime all-expenses paid trip where they will compete at an amateur contest at X Games. For mountain bike slopestyle athletes, this will be a trip to X Games Munich in June while BMX street and skate street competitors will go to X Games Los Angeles, Calif. USA in August. MTB slopestyle entries are open from April 8th to May 27th. Skate street and BMX street entries are open from April 8th to July 5th.
